Can anyone tell us what might be our problem?

We have an older Maytag dryer that just recently started flipping the breaker.

Here are some of the symptoms:

Dryer will sometimes run, not heat, timer doesn't advance, breaker doesn't trip. In essence, the dryer seems to just run forever. My husband says that this is because the breaker isn't fully reset, but as far as I can see, it is.

Dryer heats, but trips breaker.

Thanks in advance,
Colleen

I forgot to mention that the dryer is electric, and the model # is DE303
