This is a simple dryer to diagnose. The limits and heater or mounted in the lower left corner of the rear bulkhead. Unplug the dryer and remove the front panel. Remove the 2 screws holding the element and get it out. (only two wires to take loose) Get it out and check it for continuity between them two connections or simply examine the heater for breaks. If all of that is ok The cycling thermostat might be whack. If all of that is good and you have 240 volts at the receptacle then the timer may have a burnt contact inside

Most electric dryers run on 110 volts, but heat on 220 volts. Unit needs to be wired to 208 to 240 volt, 30 amp circuit to Run and HEAT properly. Motor, interior light and controls run on 110 volts, neutral (white wire) and one hot wire, usually black. The heater works on both 110 volt hot wires, usually one red and one black wire. Unit can be hooked up to run and heat on 110 volts but will allways take two or three times as long as a 220 volt setup. It is producing half or a little less of its 5600 watt rating. It takes three things to efficiently dry clothes: heat, air flow and tumbling action. Remove any one and the unit runs much less efficiently. If you need a dryer to run on 120 volts, buy one that says 110 - 120 volt operation only, but it will still take up to two hours or so to dry a load. Brent

From the front all is accessable and plenty of room to repair. Make sure you clean out the dryer before putting it back together and check the slide plates and rear rollers.
