Just look at the wiring diagram and follow the path. Also check your vent, you should feel a good amount of airflow, if you don't, have it thoroughly cleaned out, a clogged vent will cause the dryer to over heat and trip a fuse or hi limit, if you disassemble the unit and find it full of lint, your venting is inadequate. If it is electric check the circuit breaker (if it doesn't have a double pole breaker one leg can trip and not the other, allowing the unit to run but not heat) make sure you have at least 220 volts present at the outlet.

That model is not too bad to take apart. You probably have a bad element or fuse. Take the top off, take the control panel off, then take the front off. There are two screws behind the door in addition to the four at the top to remove the front. From there you can ohm out the element and fuses.
