Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

There is chance the heating element could be broken or it could have one of many other possible failures. The first thing to check is the two house circuit breakers dedicated for the dryer. The heating element needs 220 volts in order to heat. Locate the two house circuit breakers dedicated for the dryer and reset both circuit breakers. Flip both breakers off and on and then see if the dryer will heat. If it does not heat, the voltage supply should be measured and confirmed across the two outside terminals at the terminal block where the power cord is attached to the back of the dryer. Note: I do not recommend measuring the voltage supply unless you have experience and feel safe and confident in doing so; otherwise I suggest calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your dryer.

If the dryer is getting the proper voltage (220 volts) and it's not heating, check the heating element, both operating thermostats and the safety thermostat located at the back of the dryer. Disconnect the power cord from the power source and then remove the vent hose and the rear panel. Each one of the components will have two wires attached. Remove the wires from the component and each component should measure continuity. You will need an Ohm meter to check the components for continuity. I would first check the heating element (key#14) for continuity. You may even find a burnt wire connection on the heating element. I added an image to reference where the heating element is located. To remove the heating element, you must remove the screw (key#3) located at the top of the heater housing. You should see a small hole that aligns with the screw from the rear. Remove the screw and strap. Wiggle and pull the housing loose from the bulkhead and then raise it up and pull the bottom outwards and then down and off. Remove the screw securing the heating element to the housing and then pull the heating element out of the housing. You may find it burnt in two preventing the heating element from working.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
