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

Usually problem like this with electrical solenoids located on the top of gas valve inside the dryer. They need to be replace.

The ignitor may be bad or the thermal fuse may be failed.
