Question about Estate Dryers
Check for a build up of lint in the exhaust duct, an excessive build up will block air flow.
Also 220VAC electric dryers use different legs of the electrical supply. (two 110VAC legs tied via a common neutral make 220 VAC) One 110VAC leg runs the motor and controls while the other supplies power to the heater.
It is possible that one side of the 220VAC has a blown fuse and is not supplying power to the heater element.
Blown out heater - requires replacement
There is a safety switch attached to the shaft of the motor. THis switch relys on centrifical force to close and is intened to kill the power to the heater if the motor and its attached blower stop turning.
If the motor is not turning fast enough of the switch is worn then it is possible that power to the heater circuit is not being completed. It doesn't take must of a speed reduction to cause a problem. Lint build up on the drum bearings can cause enough drag to slow the drum slightly. Combined with a worn/dirty switch and the switch fails to operate.
Finally there is a blower attached to the motor shaft. The blower is made of plastic and somtimes the blower comes loose on the shaft. Usually you hear a rattling sound or sounds after the dryer drum stops as the loose spinning blower spins to a stop. ( A tight blower stops with the dryer drum) A loose blower doesn't move enough air and causes your dryer to run longer.

Hi sounds like a common problem, check vent hose is not kinked and clear all filters, also try not to overload the machine, also check that your dryer is actually getting hot, if not there could be a problem with heating element. check user manual for common faults
