Question about Dryers
My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.
You have a air flow problem. Either, your hot air distribution housing is plugged up, or your hot air blower wheel is jammed with lint, or your blower motor is bad.
I can not tell you how to access these components. You did not provide a model number.

SOURCE: Clothes not drying
A couple of possibilities to check. First, is the lint trap empty? If so, then the symptoms point to hot air bypassing the drum. Look for broken or misaligned plastic ducting inside the dryer itself. Check the exhaust air for moisture, as that is a better indicator than temperature. Don't forget that towels hold an enormous amount of water, & can be extremely long in drying, especially if not spun enough.

I finally had a GE authorized tech come to our house, because we've had the same problem on and off for about 2 yrs. Our's is 5 1/2 yrs old, and the problem was the blower motor, which is hard to get to, and the nut holding the fan in place is also put on going the "opposite" direction. (So lefty loosey, righty tighty doesn't work for this one) The Tech told me in all his years he has never replaced a heater in any of these, and it has 2. The usual problem is the blower motor has gone bad. It's working great now, and it was $470 to fix, but still cheaper than a new one....
