Most likely the heating element or wrong voltage if an electric dryer. If it is gas it could be the coils located on the gas valve. The gas valve itself. Or the ignitor.

Hello! Yesterday we cleaned out our home dryer vents. Today the heat wil not come on in our kenmore elite dryer. It tumbles and blows cool air, just no heat. Suggestions? Thank you!

If you have a gas dryer, your problem is probably caused by the ingition panel.Generally, with a gas dryer, there is an ignition device that heats to a specific temperature and this causes the gas to ignite. When this electric ignition fails to work, the gas will not ignite and there will be no heat. I had this happen and had to call a professional. It was a simple matter of installing a new ignition device and it worked perfectly for years. I hope this helps! If it is a new dryer, check to see if this part might be covered under warranty.If this helps solve your problem, please come back to Fixya and rate my advice

I have a kenmore elite he4 dryer and it is running but isnt getting hot. Need to know where the fuses are located to check them

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...

Kenmore elite dryer no heat

You may want to check if the heating element needs replacing. Most Dryers have 2 heating elements that are found by taking the back off, some of the newer dryers have 3.
