you need to check that for vent hose is not kinked if it is not then remove it from the dryer and see if it work right if it does then the vent tube that goes thourgh the wall has a blockage

I suspect you have a blocked air vent. A blocked vent will definitely extend your drying time. You may even find yourself having to run a load twice to get it fully dried. One way to confirm this is to disconnect the vent hose from the back of your dryer and dry one load with the machine venting directly into your laundry room. If that load dries quickly then you know the problem is a blocked vent. Most vents get blocked by lint near their exit to the outside. There's usually a screen at this location to prevent small animals from crawling into your house. Often this screen gets clogged with lint. Most vents are designed to allow removal and cleaning of this screen from the outside.

Check the following areas thoroughly to address this issue.
Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct, is not clogged.
Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task.
There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance. Replace the defective thermostat.
3. Heating element
A heating element might only be partially burned out, in which case it would still work but will take longer time to dry the clothes. Replace the element if found defective.
4. Moisture Sensor
Most units will have a moisture or dryness sensor as well that will fail. inspect the sensor for faults. replace if necessary.

Sounds like inadequate air flow through the machine. In order for the any dryer to function air is forced through the machine and outside. If the discharge is blocked or obstructed in any way the moist air will not be removed, and the clothes will not dry.
Disconnect dryer from wall and clean the wall outlet and and dryer discharge pipe.
Also, if you are trying to force air higher than 6 feet up the wall from a basement you will need a booster fan on the piping.

First check the power coming in, you need 240 volts. 120 to neutral on both sides and 240 across both. If you are not comfortable with a VOM volt ohm meter call somebody who is.
Be aware when every you remove a panel you will be exposed to sharp surfaces. Unplug first and be careful!
Whirlpool dryers have a thermal fuse inside the back of the dryer, if this is open the dryer will not heat. You will need to check this with a meter it should be closed. A quick and dirty way to check it, remove it and wire it in a circuit with like a flashlite or radio. the flashlite or radio should work, this is a dirty way to check fuses if you dont have a meter.
While you have the dryer open, vacuum it out and clean the venting.
