Question about Dryers
Heat not felt on top like before cleaning venting and inside back panel including inside both end of lint trap and exhaust. Heat felt in tub and exhaust.
If your dryer has a sensor it may have gone bad. Try using timed dry instead of auto dry.

You may need to do some troubleshooting. This can be done with the machine unplugged - you may have to activate the start switch, belt switch (if it has one) and the motor centrifugal switch manually.
Tip for troubleshooting 220v systems - clip one lead of a ohm meter to either L1 or L2 on the terminal block. It doesn't matter which one. According to the tech sheet (under console) follow the path for current from your clipped terminal, through the heating element, to the opposite terminal. All the readings should be less than 100 ohms, until you reach the failed part. Confirm failure by disconnecting a lead from the suspected part, and test only that part.
Live troubleshooting is sometimes slightly easier, but much more dangerous than the procedure described above. - It is definitely not recommended for beginners, or for professionals, if it can be avoided.

By overheating I presume you mean the high temperature fuse is tripping.
The two most common causes are poor air flow and a bad themostat. If there's a good flow of air coming out of the exhaust vent then it's likely the thermostat. Expect to pay $20-30 plus labor for a new one.
