Gisele, a couple of things you can look at. I am making the assumption that you have a multimeter, or at least have access to somebody who does and that you have a few basic hand tools. First things first ;-) check to make sure that your dryer vent is not blocked, crimped or otherwise obstructed. Then try flipping the breaker off/on slowly a couple times. Sometimes you can loose half the line without actually tripping the breaker.
 
Check the voltage at the plug L1 to L2 should be 240 volts. L1 to Neutral and L2 to Neutral, both should be 120 volts. If that is okay unplug the unit and check the wires at the terminal strip in the machine to make sure none are loose or burned out
 
Be careful as exposure to 240 volts is a hair raising experience and '''can be lethal'''.
 
If that checks out okay, '''unplug''' your dryer and remove the back of the dryer and check the heating element. You can check the heating element with a ohm meter or by removing it and looking to see if the element has a broken wire inside.
 
HEATER
 
1. Disconnect the electrical power to the dryer.
 
2. Set the ohmmeter to the R X 1 scale.
 
3. Disconnect one of the wire connectors from the heater terminal block.
 
4. Touch the ohmmeter test leads to the terminals on the heater terminal block. The
 
ohmmeter should indicate between 7 and 12 ohms.

THERMAL FUSE
 
Electric Dryers: The thermal fuse is wired in series with the drive motor. If the thermal fuse opens, 91°C (196°F), power to the motor is turned off. A centrifugal switch on the motor also opens the heater circuit. Gas Dryers: The thermal fuse is wired in series with the gas valve. If the thermal fuse opens, 91°C (196°F), power to the valve is turned off. A centrifugal switch on the motor also opens the heater circuit. Once the thermal fuse has opened, it will not reset, and must be replaced. Check for a failed

thermistor
thermistor, or a shorted heater element (electric dryers only).
