Dryers could not be simpler devices. I assume that since all you
mention is that the dryer is not heating, everything else on the dryer
is working as normal. ie. You could put in wet clothes, set the timer
start the dryer and the drum starts turning and air comes out of the
exhaust. It just happens not to be hot. I am also assuming that you
know how to use the drier and that it is not set on tumble (no heat).
If that is the case, the heating element is almost certainly burned out. Basically this is the part of the dryer that glows red (just like an electric stove) when electricity passes through it. Unplug the dryer and see how it can be taken apart. Many open from the top or the back. They are all slightly different. The heating element will be located near the blower fan typically at the bottom of the dryer. Figure out how to get at this, pull the old element out and then replace it with your new one. There will be two electrical connections. You may even see where the element just slides into position by the blower and can be removed with a couple of screws.
You should only need a screw driver to do all of this.
Plug the dryer in and enjoy the warmth.

Kenmore 80 Series of dryers are consumer grade dryers for home use. As
with most home appliances, the Kenmore 80 series dryers will
occasionally not work as intended. If a problem occurs with your dryer,
however, you do not necessarily need it serviced by a technician. You
can attempt to troubleshoot and fix any problems with your dryer before
contacting a technician.
