Check the following to address this issue.
Note: Normal drying time for a dryer is about 45 minutes (some may take up to an hour).
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.

Some dryers have more than one heating elliment..
A way to check is -- take the exaust hose off.. Put a mirror so you can see into the hole & hopefully see the heating elliment(s).. When running they should glow like a stove burner..
If it is not gloing its not working & needs to be replaced..
I suspect that one may have went out..
I hope this helps !!
Please rate me good ;o)

Your heater coil has burned into 2 parts. Find a friend WHO IS KNOWLEGABLE about dryers, Call a repair man or find a good used dryer. I understand this isn't what you wanted to hear, but this involves lint and 220 voltage. NOT to be taken lightly. The coil will cost around $50 and the repair men will be a minium of $75; Look in the paper and buy another one....

check the hi-limit and cycling switches on the element case along with the element itself for continuity,then if these are o.k. then check the thermal fuse on the vent pipe conduit inside the dryer near the vent connection as this is in line with the element and this opens up the element cant heat

The drum gasket is WE9M26. To install it, it is the biggest job compared to any dryer gasket of hundreds of dryers that I have worked on.
See RCKH315EH0WW at:
-Remove console (some plugs require a tiny screwdriver to pry off. Do not pull on the plugs too hard.)
-Unscrew front panel (some screws are on the front of the bottom panel. Do not remove yet)
-Remove both side panels (cut off zip ties)
-Remove front panel
-Remove air director (big white plastic part)
-Do NOT remove drum. The belt is too difficult to reinstall.
-Apply contact cement in the groove in the air director. Install new gasket.
-When reassembling, line up the duct with the rectangular groove in the air director.
Good luck and congrats if you succeed!
