Question about Whirlpool Dryers
I have a whirlpool electric dryer model # LEC8858EQ2. The dryer takes long tiime to dry clothes. It heats up but do get hot.
Try cleaning all the vents inside the dryer all the way to the outside. Be sure and clean around the blower wheel lots of things get in where the blower is pencils nails everything. They will block the wheel so it can't turn. Also vacuum the lint out of the motor. Lint most likely the problem. Hope this helps.

there is a sensor in the exhaust line in the dryer, near the motor. this tells the heating element to shut off when it gets to a certain temp, either during reg cycle or if the exhaust gets clogged, it is meant as a safety measure, but it sounds like yours is bad so the heating element never shuts off. it is not an expensive part and easy to replace

check your breaker first.A dryer will run on 110 but wont heat.if not breaker it could be your thermal fuse or element.the thermal fuse is located on element cage,unplug machine and test for continuity to your thermal cut off fuse which will be the top one on cage and check continuity to element.

Could be 2 things... either your heat source is out of repair or your vent is blocked. Since you say it only gets warm I'll assume the problem is with the gas coils inside the unit. These parts are replaceable

The vent may be stopped up, or the vent hose crimped so the air cannot escape, you can check the air flow at the vent on the outside of the house while the dryer is running.
try cleaning the vent and the lint screen with a vacuum cleaner, you may need to replace the vent hose, this should solve the problem
