You may have a component failure with your dryer. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r630242-dryer_runs_but_not_heat

You will also need to check the voltage at the wall receptacle to ensure it is reading 220-240VAC. Improper voltage can also cause these symptoms. The last paragraph in the link explains this.

Have you checked the dryer ventilation from the wall to where it exits your home? Do you have a lengthy dryer vent run? Simply cleaning the lint trap and the dryer hose may not be enough if you have a lengthy ventilation system. You may have to have your ventilation inspected or cleaned. A simple test to determine the cause is to remove the dryer vent hose from the back of the dryer and attempt to dry a load. The air leaving the back of the dryer should be forceful and warm (about 140 degrees F). If the air is weak, you may have a clog INTERNAL to the dryer. If the air remains cold, you may have a component failure INTERNAL to the dryer. If the the dryer functions normally with no problem drying, you have a clog somewhere in your ventilation EXTERNAL to the dryer. Try these tips and let me know. I hope this helps you.

My duet whirpool electric dryer keeps stoping before my clothes are dry


Make sure you are not using a timed drying setting. Use one of the pre programmed functions on the dial. These settings are meant to use a sensor and stop when the clothes are dry. If the problem continues on one of these settings, there is likely a problem with the sensor or your heating element
