Here are your parts
Parts for GE DWSR483EG3WW Dryer - AppliancePartsPros.com

Confirm that there is no heat.
Try different heat settings to see if there is heat on any setting.

If there is no heat on any setting then check your power first.
The motor etc. uses half the line (120 volts) but the heating coils require the full 240.

Try flipping the breaker off/on slowly a couple times. Sometimes you can loose half the line without actually tripping the breaker.
Check the voltage at the plug
L1 to L2 should be 240 volts
L1 to Neutral and L2 to Neutral, both should be 120 volts.
If OK
Unplug the unit and check the wires at the terminal strip in the machine to make sure none are loose or burned out
If OK
Check the power at the terminal strip.
Do this with the heater off and on.
Be careful as 240 volts is lethal !!!
