It might be the heat sensor.take the panel off the back and you will see the heating element and up above that theres a sensor that has two wires to them.if thats bad you can replace it or you can just hook the two wires together and bypass it and it will cost you nothing.

    u can unhook it take a volt meter put it on continuity and if it dont then its bad.same with the heating element.but i would be suprised if the element went out before the sensor.the sensor is usually the one to go first.you can also like i said just disconnect the two wires one the sensor and put them together and turn it on if your heating element heats up than your good.you do not need that sensor in order for your dryer to work.all that sensor does is complete the circuit so when it goes out the circuit is no longer complete,and all you have to do is twist those two wires together with a wire nut and you have a complete circuit.

Dryer heating element


There is a fuse in the dryer for the heat.
Before tearing into the dryer, make sure the power getting to the dryer is absolutely correct. (check power with the dryer running) Even with incorrect power to the dryer. the drum will still turn but there will be no heat.
Many a person has paid for expensive service calls for the problem you are having only to discover by the servicer that there was nothing wrong with the dryer but had bad power to the dryer......
