1 Check for 220 Volt at the heater entrance to the heater box (accessible from picking up the top on most dryer models).
If you have 220v there the heater element is out.
2 If you don't have 220v on the terminals of the heater the problem is in the controls.
The fuse link, the timer contacts, the centrifugal switch on the motor, and the heater safety thermostat and operating thermostat(s), are all suspect and have to be eliminated 1 by 1.
Hope this helps.
With any luck all you need is a new element. Clean the duct out while replacing the heater if so because the main thing that causes heater element burn out is low air flow. A kinked Dryer vent hose, lint, and plugged up fan circulator on the motor, or if yours has little holes in the inside cabinet where the air is taken to be heated and recirculated, these can get clogged with lint also and cause a problem are the 4 main causes of low air flow..

Hope this helps and please rate me accordingly Thank you and good luck.

A - Things that could stop a electric dryer from heating:
