SOURCE: No hot air from my tumble dryer
You do not state whether it is a condenser or vented dryer.
the most obvious reasn for no heat is element and/or stats..
The only way to confirm which it is-- is to meter them out with a multi meter..
If you have one then set it on the ohms range and test the components for continuity, you should get full scale deflection if they are o/k.
You must disconnect the wires to the components, or you will get a false reading, and needless to say, have the m/c unplugged.
If all test o/k then the problem could be with the timer and or control unit, or the heater relay if it has one.Unknown to me as I do not know your model number.
If it is a condenser dryer, make sure all filters are clear, air intake and outlet vents clear, water container empty .

I would suspect thermal fuse, easiest way to test is to tape wires together and start dryer. Safety note if left like this it will start a fire. It is located on the back of the dryer and has two wires connected to it. Here is a website that will help:
Usually, failure of a thermal switch is caused by extreme heat: meaning that the dryer is not venting properly, clean dryer of lint inside and outside as well as the vent tube. Good Luck Tim
