I can understand how important it is to have your dryer working properly. However, without the model number, I can only provide some general information on the issue. There are several components that can cause a dryer to stop heating. These depend on the source of power that the dryer uses. If the dryer is electric the problem could be caused by a failed thermal fuse, hi limit thermostat, control thermostat, thermal cut-off, or heating element. This could also be cause by a blown household breaker (there are two for this type of dryer, and one can blow or pop without the other one), or a failed timer. Some of these will also cause a gas dryer to stop heating, such as the thermostats, the thermal fuse and the thermal cut-off depending on your model. However, there is also the ignitor, the burner, the safety valve, or the coils that can cause it as well. In order to determine which part is causing the problem you will need to test the different components. If you could reply with your model number and any additional details about this, I can then provide a more detailed answer.
