If it gets hot but won't dry, it will always be some form of blockage in the venting system. That could be a smashed vent hose, lint clog in the hose or the exit opening outside, a bird has built a nest in your outside vent, the hose run is very long before exiting to the outside, etc.
If no heat, could be the element, could be a thermal fuse, could be a burned wire and in VERY RARE cases it can even be the motor even though the dryer comes on and turns.
Sometimes you have a home electrical problem where your 220 outlet is providing power to the motor but not to the element.

700 dryer wont shut off automatically

If it will not turn off on the Timed Dry cycle the failure is in the timer. The timer is the component behind the large knob on the console. If you supply me with the full model number from the front panel inside the door, I can get you a part number and approximate price of the part.

Dryer wont dry, element comes on and off, model HYE3658AYW

Could be the thermal fuse. look online for your model and it should tell you where it is located. once you find it olh it out and see if it is open, if so it's a simple and cheap fix.

Maytag gas dryer wont turn off when done drying in auto dry regular fabrics. does turn off in air fluff and auto dry perm. press. model # d3382

auto dry relies on a moisture sensor to say when its done. so your clothes arent dry enough according to sensor. perm. press. doesnt dry the clothes as much
