Question about Estate EED4300TQ Electric Dryer
The problem is in the door switch or the start switch itself. Reconnect the red/white wire to the START switch then disconnect the black wire from the switch and "ground" the switch terminal where the black wire is disconnected from to any part of the dryer cabinet. Plug the dryer in and push the START switch. The START switch is not working and must be replaced if the dryer does not start. The door switch is not working and must be replaced if the dryer starts.

I would check the door switch. Either the tang on the switch or the switch itself might be bad.
I would check power to the dryer. Number 10 is my primary suspect right now. You might have a bad motor you know. I looked up your dryer model number and it does not show a thermal limit like this one that goes next to the control thermostat:Why yours don't show on the parts list is beyond me. More here

If the thermal fuse and thermostat are bad,something is causing them to overhea,t before tackling the heating element, you should check all connections to the stat and fuse as a loose connexion could be the cause of the over heating.

get a meter,unplug the dryer and read out the fuse,pull one of the wires off when you read it out,also when was the last time you cleaned out the dryer?if it's the fuse usually the air isn't moving very well,you need to clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,vac out the inside of dryer where the motor is and clean out the vent line and make sure the outside vent is clear,if it's a long run from the back of dryer to the outside i use a leaf blower to blow out the vent line,make sure you have 240 coming in at the back of dryer,you could have a blown fuse,if the thermal fuse is good,check the thermostats on the heater box and read out the heater,good luck,if i can help with anything else let me know

Another possible cause for a dryer not heating up
could be attributed to a faulty thermal fuse. Once a dryer's thermal
fuse has blown, it is no longer of any use. If your dryer's fuse is
blown, you will have to replace it. Open up your dryer's cabinet and
locate its thermal fuse so that you can test it
If any of your dryer's thermostats have become
defective, they could be the reason that your dryer is not heating. Open
up your dryer's cabinet and test each of your dryer's thermostats. If
any are faulty, replace them.
A defective timer motor could also cause your dryer
to not heat up. Test your dryer's timer motor. If it is no longer
functioning as it should, replace either the entire motor assembly, or
just its motor.
If your dryer won't heat up, it's possible that it is
not being supplied with the proper voltage. Here are three ways to make
sure power is getting to your dryer: First, make sure your dryer is
plugged in. Next, check the circuit breaker panel to make sure all the
circuit breakers are in the correct positions. Finally, check to make
sure no fuses in your fuse panel are blown. Any of these could explain
why power is not getting to your dryer.
