I think what has happened is the heating element has gone bad on you. You can get a new element for your dryer from this website.

Thanks for using FixYa, hope this helps.

Is this a gas or electirc dryer?
If it's an electrical dryer it's probably the heating element.
Pull the dryer out, remove the back panel and look to see if the heating element is heating up (turns red). If not it's the heating element which is pretty easy to change.
Call an appliance parts store with the make and model number before you pull it out to make sure one's available and always take the old one with you to verify it's the same.
Hope this was helpful.
Good Luck!

Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.
