It is usually on the area next to the heater but not on the heater. Sounds like its opening to early. But it could also be bad air flow causing a safety to open. Could also be the timer not completing the heat circuit to the correct place on the heating element. You would need a wire diagram to see if you have more than 1 operating thermostat. and a timer circuit diagram if it has more than 1 heat setting. If you read diagrams these will explain themselves.

If you feel confident here are the main things to do on checking for no heat Electric Heating Dryer:
1 Check for 220 Volt at the heater entrance to the heater box (accessible from picking up the top on most dryer models).
If you have 220v there the heater element is out.
2 If you don't have 220v on the terminals of the heater the problem is in the controls.
The fuse link, the timer contacts, the centrifugal switch on the motor, and the heater safety thermostat and operating thermostat(s), are all suspect and have to be eliminated 1 by 1.
Hope this helps.
With any luck all you need is a new element. Clean the duct out while replacing the heater if so because the main thing that causes heater element burn out is low air flow. A kinked Dryer vent hose, lint, and plugged up fan circulator on the motor, or if yours has little holes in the inside cabinet where the air is taken to be heated and recirculated, these can get clogged with lint also and cause a problem are the 4 main causes of low air flow..

Hope this helps and please rate me accordingly Thank you and good luck.

When I turn on heat, hot air from driver's side, but passenger's side blows cold. Is this something I can repair myself?

Normally it is a rusty control valve,

normaly the warm water from the engine heats a radiator inside the car the interior fan then blows air theough this heater radiator making your air inside the car warm.

now in this case you have two radiators and two valves, depending on where you want the heat left or right the appropriate valve will open.

normaly you can follow the water pipes to just before they go into the car there are to grey cylinder looking things with a plug.

You can try taking the valve out, opening it up clean it thouroghly and re assemble.

There is a lack of heat. It gets a little warm

Please ensure that the venting from the dryer to the outside of the house is clean and free of lint.
Ensure the venting behind the dryer is not kinked.

Long time to dry issues are usually caused by restricted venting to the outside.

Since you have heat this may solve the problem.

Intertherm m1m furnace board says low flame yellow lite flashes 3 times Not getting enough heat

The system most likely just needs to be cleaned thouroghly. The burners, orifices, ignition assembly and flame sensors get diry, rusty, and contaminaterd. That causes low gas flow, and improper flame pattern. The othe possiblilty is a cloged or failing gas valve.

Maytag Neptune gas dryer sense dry time at 99, little or no heat

If this is a gas dryer, I'd suggest an inspection by the gas company or qualified technician. If the jets aren't firing correctly, you are wasting gas and possibly creating a hazard.

Will not dry clothes fully. the machine heats fine but it takes two or more cycles to fully dry a little load. someone told me about a part that may need repaced around the lint trap.. Any ideas?

Your lint exhaust is blocking the heat flow.
Remove the vent from the rear of the dryer and run a timed cycle load for 40 minutes.
If laundry is dry, repair the outside vent.
If not dry,open the dryer cabinet and clean the inside lint and heat vent.
