The dryer outlet hose leads somewhere outdoors. Go outside and make sure that there is nothing (lint, leaves, etc) blocking the outside end of the outlet. This would be the first and simplest solution before you consider anything else.

Dryers are notorious for creating lint, and the lint can clog the exhaust hose.
I'd recommend pulling the unit away from the wall so that you can get access to the hose. Disconnect it and use a vacuum cleaner to get as much lint as possible out of the dryer and the hose.
Check the end of the hose where it dumps into open air. Sometimes trim with a screen was installed. these will plug up and no air can get out. Nasty safety hazard.
After you've got it as clean as possible, before you re-connect it, try turning it on ans see if it blows a bunch more lint out, an more importantly, that it blows lots of air.
Then re-connect the hose and try again, making sure that lots of air is coming out of the outside exit.
Hopefully you'll have it fixed.
Sounds like an open heating element issue. If you have two sensors for internal temps, the chances of both going bad at same time are remote.
Locate the element wiring and disconnect from circuit and do a simple continuity test. Chances are that it is burnt out or open.
This model dryer has two heating elements, one for the top and one for the bottom, I suspect that the bottom element is burned out. If you want to attempt it yourself then I can send you a service manual that will walk you step by step through the whole dryer.
you need to clean out the dryer.somewhere lint is blocking the air movement.pull off the vent line,if it's long blow it out with a leaf blower,then clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into and vac out the cabinet where the motor is.if it's gas you should do this once a year electric once every two years.
No air flow is due to a restriction due to lint build up. Pull the lint filter and look closely at it. Sometimes the filter gets a residue from dryer softener sheets that can cause lint to stick to the screen and block air flow. To remove wash it with a mild detergent and use a gentle brush on it.
If that is clear then the restriction is further inside the dryer or in the vent pipe between the dryer and wall or the pipe that goes from the wall to the outside. You may have to take off the vent hose and turn the dryer on to see if air blows out the back of the dryer for a few seconds. If air blows there then the problem is in the house venting and you need to have that cleaned.
u probably have the dryer pushed too close to the wall and u have kinked the dryer vent or u have a buildup of lint in the dryer vent or the lint trap pull the dryer out and pull the dryer vent off and dry a load with it off and away from the wall if it works the u have a kinked hose or a lint blockage in the hose good luck hope this helps
i belive you should check the vent hose from the dryer all the way to where it exits the house... that's usually the problem when dryers aren't drying as well as they shoud... lint wil start to cake on the walls of the vent and either create a complete block or slow the air down enough to keep it from circulating like it should
I think your vent has lint in the line between the wall and the outside of your house not allowing the moisture to get out
1 when the dryer is running go outside and observe the vent to see if hot air is coming out
2 Turn dryer off, disconnect electric from wall
3 pull dryer out from wall
4 take a nut driver or screw and remove the clamp that attaches the flex vent pipe to the wall
4 Also remove the flex pipe from the dryer
5 Inspect inside vent connection inside dryer for any trapped lint
6 inspect inside flex line for any lint
7 Look inside wall vent for lint you can also reach in with your hand to feel for lint
8 If you have a leaf blower or can borrow one(electric is best) from your neighbor put the snout of the blower into the vent going into the wall seal the area between the snout and the vent pipe at the wall ( i use duct tape you can use wash clothes rags etc
9 start blower and blow any lint in the line out through outside THIS WILL CLEAR THE LINT
10 Reattach the flex to the wall vent and dryer , plug in. run a load and you should be back in business
The message does not only refer to filters, badly written.
There is an air flow restriction that the machine senses and is warning about.
check the fan and fan housing for lint that has got past the screens, then pull the dryer away from the wall and check the exhaust duct for lint, all the way to the wall
then check the outside wall vent for lint build up in the rodent screen
