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.

check you thermal fuse for continuity if none change it and the high-imit safety shut-off fuse(closest to heat element)

Check the following to address this issue.
1. A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.
2. Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.
If all checks out OK above, replace the main control board.
