First make sure that you actually have 220 available. Unplug dryer and test accross two straight poles. 220 to each other 120 to middle. L shaped hole. Motor runs on 120 volts and can run on one leg. Next test if there is voltage accross the two terminals of the element. Most likely just a burned out element. But check for power. Take the back off and look right bottom. There will be a tube like casing with two heavier wires going in the side at the bottom Turn dryer on and test for voltage. If not check each thermostat for an open circuit. The usual culprit is the high limit on the element box. If so next step is to unplug dryer, remove lint filter and remove the two screws there. Pry the top up from the front. Use a butter knife or thin screwdriver to push in clips at the front crack. Prop it up and you will see a flat metal strap holding the heater tube at the left rear. 5/16 socket. Remove screw and push element tube back. Go in back and remove wires from element. The element is held in place with usually just one screw pull it out and look for a broken coil. Elements cost anywhere from $9 to $25 Take the old one in or use the model #. The new one might not look exactly like the old but will fit. Thermostats cost about the same. After you fix the dryer you MUST check for blocked vent hoses etc. as this is a common cause for burned elements and thermostats.

This could be the heating element or several other parts more likely the thermal fuse. There is a video on troubleshooting a similar model at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html this will walk you thru troubleshooting your problem.

Do you have fuses or breaker? If you have fuses one fuse may be burnt out.
