Most likely the heating element however it could be a limit IF you have lint problems. The best thing you could do is break down the dryer and go over it with a vacuum. Ohm out all the safetys and heater. Fairly simple process.Just remember to remove a wire from each component so you won't get a back feed or what we call a false reading.I like to use an ohmeter with an audible continuity reading. (when the 2 leads are joined it beeps) then check each component for a beep. See easy! let me know
