Hope this info helps, ps don't forget to give me a rating thanks!!
For an electric dryer that runs but doesn’t heat, follow this repair roadmap:
Flip the circuit breaker off and then back on. Electric dryers run on a two-pole, 240v breaker. A common problem is for one of the legs to break which cuts the 240v that the elements need to heat up but it still supplies the 120v for the motor. The result is that the dryer runs but doesn’t heat.
If the breaker checks out, then it’s time to do some surgery. Unplug the dryer and open it up.
. Use your ohm meter to test the thermostats. All should show continuity.
Measure the resistance of the heating element with your ohm meter. Normal readings are in the neighborhood of 30 ohms.
In rare cases, the centrifugal switch in the motor can fail which breaks the power circuit for the heating elements. If this is the case, then the entire motor must be replaced since the centrifugal switch is built into the motor.

Because of no ventilation would have caused the hi limit fuse or thermal fuse to blow. can check with an ohm meter before replacing.

If the vent is in a vertical arrangement you will need to have a chimney sweep(they are around) or get a cleaning kit for a 4 inch duct(18cm) from a place like Harbor Freight tools($10-15 USD). Doing it your self will be much less expensive. The lint filter can not catch every thing. If it is dammaged replace it but the durt will need to be cleaned periodically due to the nature of the incline. You will also notice faster drying times caused by improved air circulation. Be sure your dryer duct between the machne and the wall is cleaned, hooked up and not collapsed. If this is helpful please leave feedback. Thanks,SnugglePants

SOURCE: no heat in dryer
The element to heat the dryer has gone out. You removed the back of the dryer to remove lint you will need to remove the back of the dryer again to access the heating element. It is in the lower left or right hand corner (depending on model) and looks like the inside of a toaster oven small thin wires. Take the assembly out (make sure the unit is unplugged always) get the model and serial # and purchase replacement from an appliance parts house.
Good Luck hope this helped you some
