Unplug it. Remove the rear cover. Get out yer ohms meter. Check for open components.

What is a ohms meter? Where do I find this? I am a little confused. What do you mean by checking for open components? Could it be the fuse? Someone told me they had a heating problem with their dryer and it was the fuse.

An ohms meter checks circuits. You can get a cheap audible ohms meter. Just touch the leads and you get a beep. Remove a wire from each component you check to prevent the possibility of a false read/loop. You no get beep: part bad Kimosabe. Simple. Any part that don't make the thang beep is bad. Or use a cheap analog meter you can buy anywhere for 10 bucks: Click on pics to enlarge.

It looks like the dryer is 240v. How do I know what to set the ohms on? It has many different settings on it.

If all the components is good and the power is good then you need a timer.

Where is the timer at? I took apart the heating element to look at the coils and one of the coils is broke. Would this be my problem?

Unless the broken coil was shorted to the canister you should not have gotten a beep if you took the wires off first.
