sounds like a thermostat fault, there is two on these machines and although only one will be at fault both should be replaced

Thermostat controls heat. There is also a
motor centrifulgal switch, in the element
circuit, that the motor closes to insure
the motor is turning. Try another heat
setting. There is more than one
thermostat. You may have blown the
'thermal fuse' too, whcih requires

Things that could stop a gas dryer from heating:
- glow bar igniter, thermal fuse ( not all models ), coils on the gas valve, gas valve, thermostats, motor heat switch, timer, selector switch, sensor.

your element has burnt in half where the sparks are coming from is the end of the element touching the metal. You need the model and serial number go to the nearest appliance parts supplier and get a new element they aren't that hard to replace. Always make sure you disconnect the power source before doing any repairs to the dryer. Good Luck

SOURCE: Hotpoint ctd00G will not heat up
This is most likely the thermostat switch or possibly the heating element itself.
One or the other is likely needing replacement.
If you are competent at electrical repairs, and have a test meter; Unplug and move to allow access.
Undo rear top screws and remove lid.
Heating element is usualy on top. Disconnect leads and check continuity of switches and element.
Replace switches with similar if either are open circuit. Available as spares from online parts centres.
Heating element should read in the low Ohms - around 20 - 35 Ohms if Ok, otherwise replace.
ONLY ATTEMPT REPAIRS IF COMPETENT (I have to say that)
