If the vent is blocked, it will not stop the heat, it will only restrict the air flow.
Generally a couple of things can cause the heat to stop.
Either the thermostat or the element.
I would first suggest the element.
It may be fatigued therefore the internal wire within the element becomes fragile and eventually breaks down. Although it is an electrical item, it is mechanically built and can fail.
In some dryers the element is held in clips.
These clips can cut into the element.
The thermostat maintains temeperature but again, it is mechanically built and can also break down.
If you are not capable of inspecting or troubleshooting the internals of the dryer (i.e remove the cover and look for the failurer), then have it inspected by a repairman. There is not too much that can go wrong with a dryer. The most expensive part wuld be the motor that spins the drum.

what type is this electric or gas? have you removed the exsaust from the wall and ran a load like this? if you have heat and this is an electric dryer it sounds like you have a blockage in your house. if the dryer runs fine without the exsaust attached then that is your problem. let me know

If you are not getting heat it could be several things like a bad limit switch or element burned out, the only way to know for sure is with a test meter to track the flow of electricity. If you are not comfortable with electric wiring it is best to call a repairman if you are comfortable useing a volt meter and a ohm meter I can walk you through the steps.

Maybe that was in addition..they tell us the air flow is blocked and tell us 2 clean our air duct ..but the dryer was blocked on inside..the repair man claimed the belt was off maybe he was blowing smoke..but these are the kind of people they are sending out..trying to blow off as many appointments so they can get off on time.
