All electric dryers have a dedicated 30 amp double pole breaker at the electrical service panel You need an electrician at this point.

If you have 240v at the wall AND to the back of the dryer, your gonna need to check some other components.  If you have the tech sheet handy that will help. I would first start at the thermal fuse, motor, motors centrifigal switch, thermostat then check the element. If any one of these are bad your gonna need to check your ventalation also before replacing parts.

The blower housing safety is an auto reset one. It could be open though and that would kill power to the motor. The broken belt switch and the door switch could also kill the motor. The other safety's are in the heater circuit and would not kill power to the motor.
