you can remove the lower acess panel (2) 5/16 screws along bottom. youll get a good view of workings there. turn on dryer (make sure a heat cycle is selected. you should see the ignitor light with in a few secs. if not unplug the ignitor(small white connector maybe 6inhes back from ignitor itself) and with a meter ck for 110v in that connection when unit is turned on, if you do have 110volts , you hav abad ignitor. ifyou dont get 110 volts you need to check the thermostat(s) located on top of the heater box right above the ignitor, if no continuity you need a new thermo.

This can obviously be several things, but I would first check the small safety thermostat. On the gas models, there is a small pin sticking out of it which can be pushed back in to reset it. It is located on the heater housing and is only about the size of a dime, with two wires on it. This will trip out easily if your vent was not clean, or is long or restricted in some ways (like using flex ducting)
If you need more help getting to it, let me know and I'll give you more instructions.

rule number one take everything off of it and never store clothes or anything that can insulate the top it overheats them. It kind of fools all your sensors when you store stuff on top

You may have damaged the glow bar gas ignitor when cleaning the dryer.. it's a ceramic element that gets brittle after it has been used. And if you bang into it with a vacuum hose or tool or whatever while you're cleaning it, it can crack or break....try cycling the dryer and watch the ignitor while it attempt to heat up... if there isn't any glow at all, its the ignitor... it's a simple job to swap it out...
Let me know if that doesn't work...

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.
if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....
If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.
