If you were running it on timed cycle and it was still running with no heat then you have a bad timer and if you were running it on auto cycle and it was still running and its electric dryer then you have a bad element ,,, if its gas you may have a bad ignitor / larry

SOURCE: dryer is heating but clothes are not drying.

Judging by the increasing moisture, your dryer vent is not venting the moisture to the outside. Check your vent pipe for blockages. I had a person a while back with a similar problem, and this person had a lint trap on the connection that went to the exterior of their house, so check that out as well.

The timer is stripped inside and needs to be replaced. The cogged teeth are made of plastic and a tooth or two has broken off keeping the timer from moving while running

Why does my dryer have no heat and keeps running when i use the timed heat-sensing selection?


Suspect vent still plugged with lint, leave vent disconnected and run dryer, stay within eyesight when doing this, if the dryer dries the clothes, then look for blockage in the vent pipe to the outside.

Dryer gets hot, but not drying clothes


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.


4. Moisture Sensor
Most units will have a moisture or dryness sensor as well that will fail. inspect the sensor for faults. replace if necessary.

Element heats, dryer tumbles, no heat in drum, never shuts off


Hi, If the dryer heats but will not advance in either time or auto cycles, you need to change the timer.
You can test to see if the timer is getting voltage. Remove the top rear panel and locate the two wires going to the timer motor. There should be 120V when the dryer is running in time dry.
Please let me know if this helps or if I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic
