Electric dryer runs for 10 seconds

I recently submitted a question regarding my electric dryer only running for about 5 seconds before quitting, then having to wait about 10 minutes before I can start it again to only have the same thing happen.
Someone mentioned (here) that it might be a 110 circuit dryer and the plug is wired for 220. It is not the case.
My question is, what if the outlet is wired for 110, and the dryer is 220? What would be the sympthoms?

Thank you for your question. If the power supply is only 110volts, an electric dryer will run but not heat.
