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.

SOURCE: No hot air for dryer
I would check the air duct discharge real good before taking anything apart! A clog down line will cause the igniter to kick off resulting in blowing cold air! You need to sqeeze the air duct or take it off as lynt is soo light you will not even notice a clog but your dryer will! Good luck!

Look at the bottom of your front panel and see if you can see a screw on either side about 2-3 inches from the very bottom edge of the front panel. If so take them out and pull the bottom away far enough to disengage the top of the front panel from the top panel. If this works for ya. then now you have it openened, if not repost me.

If the dryer won't heat up, the problem is typically either a blown thermal fuse or a faulty heating element. The thermal fuse is located just inside the back of the dryer on or near the exhaust duct. It is about one inch long. The thermal fuse and heating element can be tested using an ohm meter or multimeter. These components should have continuity. If either does not, that component is faulty. There is no telling if the moving around of the machine caused the problem or if the timing of the problem was coincidental. Sure hope this helps ya and best wishes.

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.
