SOURCE: kenmore dryer no heat
If the dryer runs - but no heat is produced, there are usually two things that it would normally be - first turn the dryer on and go outside and check the flow at the duct. If the flow at the duct is weak (should be nice and strong) then you more than likely just have a clogged up duct - clean it out and you should see a big difference in airflow and time to dry things. If the air flow is good but there still is no heat - you may have a heater bank that went out, or a hi limit switch that was set

You should have your owner's manual on hand to locate specific parts
and understand how to disassemble the dryer. Also make sure that the
power is disconnected from the appliance before making any repairs.
1)Check the fuses near the heating element. Inspect them for breaks inside the fuse. Replace them if necessary.
2)Test the temperature switch with a volt-ohm meter. Set the meter to RX1 and zero it out. Touch the meter probes to each terminal on the switch. The reading should be zero. Next turn the switch on and test it again. Now the reading should show infinity. If the switch fails either test replace it with a new one.
3)Check the heating coil to see if it is bad. Use the volt-ohm meter and touch the probes to each of the heating coil terminals. If it reads zero, the heating coil needs to be replaced.
