Question about Magic Chef Dryers
Well.. you probably smoked a high limit that controls your heating element.. which controls the whole machine. This part isn't very expensive, but it is a task to get to. You're hearing your timer because it's designed like a kitchen timer (no power). If you're uncomfortable doing this yourself (don't play with 220 if you're inexperienced).

I suspect you have a blocked air vent. A blocked vent will definitely extend your drying time. You may even find yourself having to run a load twice to get it fully dried. One way to confirm this is to disconnect the vent hose from the back of your dryer and dry one load with the machine venting directly into your laundry room. If that load dries quickly then you know the problem is a blocked vent. Most vents get blocked by lint near their exit to the outside. There's usually a screen at this location to prevent small animals from crawling into your house. Often this screen gets clogged with lint. Most vents are designed to allow removal and cleaning of this screen from the outside.

This is likely the result of an air flow problem if you are sure the heater is working. Ensure
you are not running the dryer in a closed room which would starve the
dryer of air dramatically reducing the air over the clothes even if the
full length of your vent is brand new. Next, remove the vent
hose from the rear of the dryer and check for strong air flow at the
outlet. If it seems strong enough then run a vent through a window or
out into another room and do one load in this fashion. If this resolves
your problem the blockage exists in the vent line outside your dryer
and disassembling dryer becomes unnecessary.
If not, ensure you have seen and touched every inch of interior dryer piping and hold the lint filter up to the light to be sure you can see through it. Disassemble and clean ANY section of piping you can't get your hand into. The area below the lint filter tends to catch a lot of lint and can only be accessed by removing the housing at the rear on the left side as you face the rear. Ensure the blower wheel turns when the motor turns. (Newer models may have the filter housing at the front)
Having performed all these actions will likely resolve the problem.

This problem may be the result of a dirty lent filter which if clogged will short cycle the dryer and the clothes will still be damp when done. Also a dirty exhaust pipe (usally 4") will prevent the clothes from drying correctly. Make sure that the air is leaving the machine. To do this you have to go outside when the machine is running.
