Question about Whirlpool Cabrio 7.0 Cu. Ft. Super Capacity Plus 7-Cycle Gas Dryer - White
Took off dryer vent from the back and ran the dryer. Hot air is coming out of the back of the dryer. Vent is not clogged because it is brand new. Put clothes inside the dryer, ran for 15 minutes, opened and immediately checked clothes. No heat coming from tub and clothes were cool to the touch.
Not a major appliance expert--but if the situation is as described with hot air out vent but not in the drum where the clothing is it seems to me you have a blockage between the drum and lint filter to where it reaches the vent tube---they do make long flexible brushes for this-----a suggestion: if you have a compressor try forcing air down from the lint filter with the vent tube removed to see if the blockage is there and will clear or not.
A blockage can be a fire hazard so if you do not find it have a tech out.

REMOVE THE BACK PANEL AND THERE YOU'LL HAVE ACCESS TO YOUR HEAT ELEMENT CHECK IT FOR A BROKEN COIL AND ALSO CHECK YOUR THERMAL FUSE.

Vents can fool you sometimes they seem to be ok but still cause problems. Try running with vent unhooked from machine one time and see if it works ok.
Check for leaks air leaks around the door or anywhere else.
