... Locate and test the fuse ...

on electric Dryers, would prevent the Drum Motor from running .. (it runs) :whistling:

Does the Timer still run in the Auto-Dry (sensor) Cycle ?

check the Thermal Cutoff and the Hi-Limit Thermostat (thermal switches)

No, it will just run for hours. Just blowing cold air.

Tested everything and couldn't find an issue. Flipped the breaker in the apartment again (third time) and it's heating now. Not sure if we fixed something accidently or if we have another issue.

If you are able, tighten the screws at the 240 volt breaker. Hot and neutral screws. Also with the breaker off, check the wires coming into the dryer and make sure they are tight. Hope this helps.
