It could be the ignitor, you have to open the dryer, take the belt off and start it, if you dont see a red glowing light could be the igniter, you have to disconect it and check for voltage, if you have voltage, replace the igniter

Hit it with a big BIG HAMMER!!! NO NO, I'm just kidding! It can be several things, airflow, coils, or thermal fuse. Most common problem is the fuse so thats what I'll cover... UNPLUG DRYER, take back panel off (use 1/4 nut driver) look for the thin white thing with two of the same color wires going to it.(located lower left).... take wires off, then take the fuse off and look at the back of it. is it slightly melted and black? Replace and wala!!!!! GOODLUCK!!!

5 most likely culprits:
From most likely to least likely:
1. Thermal Fuse
2. Thermal Cut-Off
4. Heating Element*
5. Ignitor (GAS DRYERS ONLY)
*Cannot be tested with an ohm meter. You must inspect to make sure there is no damage along the coils of the element. All other parts CAN be tested with an ohm meter.

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.
if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....
If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.
check out this electric no heat tip...
