Re: My dryer gets hot but does not spin.
Your belt has broken. get the model number off your dryer and take it to your local parts store and they can get the belt. They can most likely show you how to replace it. If not, let me know and i will tell you how.

Most likely control board. On a cabrio main power controls everything. If it agitate and drains and does not spin that's what it will be especially if there are no codes. Only other thing that could prevent spin, is a bad lid lock. But if there are no codes it a board.
2 things are needed to dry clothes. 1 is good air flow. Check to make sure that the dryer vent is not clogged or partially clogged with lint. Also make sure there are no kinks in the vent hose. With the dryer running you should feel good air flow blowing out of the outside house vent. The 2nd thing a dryer needs heat. Check to see that the dryer feels warm to hot when you reach in to tough the clothes. It is possible that the heat element has partially failed. Another thing to investigate is how well the laundry machine is spinning out the water in the spin cycle. This spin cycle is used to get as much water out as possible prior to placing the clothes in the dryer. The wetter the clothes when they come out of the laundry, the longer it takes to dry them.
Check the following areas thoroughly to address this issue.
1. Venting Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct, is not clogged.
Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task.
2. Thermostat There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance. Replace the defective thermostat.
3. Heating element A heating element might only be partially burned out, in which case it would still work but will take longer time to dry the clothes. Replace the element if found defective.
ahhh very common, clean clean clean inside the dryer, take the lint screen put some toliet bowl cleaner on it let it sit while you are tearing the dryer apart and clean the whole dryer vent and or change it, make sure the flap outside is not stuck shut as well...
The exhaust hose in the back will not affect whether the dryer will heat. The hose just removes the used hot air to a place outside your house. I assume dryer drum spins, but you get no heat. If the dryer has gotten a few years of use, I suspect that the heating element has gone bad. Have you noticed that it has taken longer and longer to dry clothes than it used to? If so, most probably the element is bad. The element is not unlike a heating element in an electric stove, and is housed in a duct inside the dryer.
