You may have a bad overtemp switch that is disabling the dryer heating element ( normally as a safety mechanism to keep it from over-heating and/or causing a fire) from staying on. Many ( but not all) are of the auto reset type and open the circuit if they are sensing high temperatures. When they sense this over temp condition , they open and disable the heater element from being energized. Once the temp drops to less than their limit, they reset and allow the heater to switch on. That would be one consideration to investigate. If you can gain acess to te back of the dryer, you can bypass these switches by shortng the wire leads together.. Do this as a diagnostic only.. and DO NOT leave them that way.. you risk having a fire if you do.. also.. make sure you remove or disable power to your dryer when you are checking this out. If the dryer heater remains on after you short the temp switch leads together, then you wil have proven that the temp switch is the problem and it shoul dbe replaced..Hope this helps you...
