I agree with "domain".
What is the voltage at the dryer on L1 to L2,
L1 to Neutral,
L2 to Neutral?

Good morning gentlemen! I had almost the same problem once when I went to a clients house. The dryer light would work and the motor would run but would not heat. After breaking out my meter I discovered that the L-1 had 120  and L -2 nothing. So, I took electrical panel lose and tested the breaker, which the whole problem ended up being a faulty breaker, much  to my surprise!
