MAKE SURE YOUR VENT ISNT CLOGGED AND YOU HAVE 220 VOLTS AT THE DRYER IF ALL THIS CHECKS OUT GO TO ELEMENT WHICH IS BEHIND THE LOWER PANEL IN THE FRONT.REMOVE THE PANEL WITH THREE SCREWS ON THE BOTTOM AND TAP DOWN AND OUT AT THE SAME TIME. USE A VOLT OHM METER AND CHECK OHMS ACROSS THE TERMINALS OF THE HEATER IT SHOULD HAVE A OHM READING IF NOT CHANGE HEATER AND OPERATING THERMOSTAT GOOD LUCK

check the thermal limit on the side of the heater housing and the blower thermal on the blower housing
the emement limit is at the top of the blower housing and will have 2 red wires going to it
the blower limit will have blue wires going to it
withe the power cord unpluged, remove the wires to these two limits and with a meter on rx 1 ect. read across each of these if you do not get a meter fluctuation , all the way to the right as you check the part os bad

There are a couple of part numbers you will need. If you will go to www.appliancepartspro.com and enter your model number. You will be able to see every part in your dryer. Now for whats wrong with it. This is a very common problem that I see at least 2 times during my business day. The parts you will need to check are as follows. Look at these parts on the diagram so that you can see where they are located inside your dryer
#7 Thermal fuse/ Check to see if there is continuity between the two terminals on the part. If not, this part is bad. Replace. If it's good, check #9 the same way. Part # 9 comes with a part #15 also because if the part #9 is bad, it's because #15 had gone bad in the past and the dryer had been cycling off of #9 until it went out. Cutting the dryer heat off. One of the two parts #7 or #9 is bad. I hope this makes since to you. If your not able to test these parts, you can replace both and it will fix your dryer. Notice the prices are next to the part # on the web site. you can also order the parts from there, this is the best prices I have found. If I can help any more, just respond back. Good luck

If the breakers are okay and you have power to the dryer the problem would be one of two issues.
The first and most likely is the thermal cut off. This is a small temperature activated fuse that will trip if the air flow through the heater is poor, this is usually due to a plugged lint filter or restricted vent pipe between the dryer and outside.
The second is the heat element itself has gone bad. You can measure it with an ohmmeter or physically inspect it for breaks. The image I have attached shows both. The T cut off is part 47 and the element is part 14 both visible with the lower panel taken off. The lower panel has 2 screws visible while laying on the floor looking straight at the panel.
The part numbers for the components are 279973 (cut off kit) and 3387747 (heater)
