The dryer was not getting hot. Found broken coil in heat element. Just replaced the heat element with housing. I beleive I re-connected all the wires in the same spots as the old element. Now the dryer will not turn on at all. No drum spin nor heat. What could be the cause?

ANSWER Hello Jack, Two things come immediately to mind. First, are all the wires reconnected to the door switch properly. Second, there is a belt switch in the base of the unit. If the belt isn't on or if the idler pulley arm isn't configured correctly, this switch can be the issue. If this switch isn't activated by the belt, the dryer will appear dead.
