Either the heater element is breaking or is loose and getting only 110V instead of 240V. First I would check the wall outlet with a voltmeter for 240V between Line1 and Line2. Also check the connections and continuity for the heater element.

It ended up being a easy fix. Our old dryer was working fine and had been ran an hour before I hooked up the new Samsung dryer. Therefore I assumed when the new dryer did not work there had to be something wrong with it. There ended up being nothing wrong with it and it was my dryer vent. It was barley plugged which caused it to not heat up properly. I was told that the new dryers have a lot more sensors on them and its very sensitive about needing a clean vent to vent out the heat. My vent was not very dirty, but it had just enough build up of lent in it, it caused the dryer to not vent properly and it would keep shutting the flame off. Blew it out with my leaf blower and now it heats up and dry quick. I hope this helps

The first thing to check is the temperature. start the dryer, and check it about 10-15 minutes in, is it very hot or kinda cool? IF its very hot, Look at the lint trap channel to see if there is a build up of lint, then remove the vent hose from the back of the dryer and make sure it has no lint in it and that it is clear all the way through the outside of your house. Make sure the flapper for the dryer on the outside is clear.
If it feels coolish, you will need to replace the heating elements, or a control circuit. Neither are expensive.
IF you do it yourself it could cost maybe $50-100. Since your asking for help here, I urge you to pay for a professional to repair the dryer which may run $150-200. You will have to decide if repairing the dryer is worth the investment.

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
