I have checked the vents, and read some forum and watched some vids.  the heating element i get 12.5 ohms. the safety thermostat, the thermal limiter and the thermostat control and all are reading approx 0.4 or 0.5 ohms. I have not checked the power from the plug yet (didn't know to before i disasembled the dryer) and im not sure if i can do that with the dryer disasembled (top, front, drum off, wires unpluged inside) If there is nothing else to check inside, then i will put it back together and check the voltage coming from the plug. Other then not heating up, the dryer works fine.
Any help?

Thanks for the help. It turns out that the outlet had gone bad.
