Check following:

1) 220 volts to wall receptacle

2) Inspect dryer pigtail/plug connection at the dryer terminal block.
    It's not unusual to find burnt wiring from an improper plug install.

3) Thermal Fuse at the heater housing. If defective--verify that the
    dryer venting from the rear of the dryer to the outside home
    vent hood is clear and unobstructed.
    Replace the Operating Thermostat as well if the thermal limiter
    has failed.

4) Heating Element

5) Motor Centrifugal Switch

6) If all of the above is fine--it is likely that the main control board
    has a failed relay and needs replacement (Main Board).

Check the vent pipe and filter housing for buildup of fluff. A bit of hoovering may be in order. Follow the instuctions for testing components in the manual provided by Reggie.
