Question about Hoover Dryers
SOURCE: dryer will not heat
Check to make sure you have 240V at the outlet. If you do, check the continuity of the element and thermostats. If still no heat, it could be the temperature setting switch, the timer or the motor.

I had the same problem. Everyone continued to tell me that I needed a new heating element, clean lint trap, etc. However, I took the front off of the dryer and located the heating element. On the front of the heating element, in between two wires, there is a red button. Push the button and you might hear a click that sounds similar to a circuit breaker. It is a reset button for the heating element. Try that and it might help.

Take a big tough wrench and put on shaft next to blower wheel. Now place a big tough wrench on the slotted place on the blower wheel. A place for a wrench is located on the blower wheel where the motor shaft goes into the wheel. Now holding one, try turning the other. Make sure you don't have one that has reverse threads. There are some models that do have them. They drive me crazy trying to determine which it is. They are normally real tight. About 1/3rd of the time I end up having to bust the blower to get it off. Although try not to if you don't have to because this is a part that seems to never go bad.
Please rate solution

If it is a thermostat there is nothing wrong with jumpering the supply across to the out feed to make sure that the rest of the heating side is OK before you buy a new stat.
You only need to run the machine for a minute or so to acertain if it all works
