I know that it can be difficult when you appliances don't want to work properly. Below I have included two images for the dryer. The first includes a set of steps for troubleshooting the problem. It includes a lot of technical information. The second is a picture of the components that you will be testing. Most likely the problem is with the start switch. If you need to order any parts, please click on this link Sears Parts Direct

As for the dryer not heating, this could be related to the issue with the start switch. However, you will need to fix this problem first before you will know.

If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread.
