Sounds like your heating coil is faulty.
Unplug the dryer, remove the back of the dryer.
Locate the air tube going from the blower to the drum.
Normally inside the air tube is where you will find the heating coil and thermostats.
Remove the wires from the heating coil...and check with a continuity meter across the two should read continuity across the terminals, if you do not read continuity across the terminals then the heater coil is faulty.
Good luck,
I hope this helps

Damp clothes when done

Your problem is going to be 1 of 2 things either the dryer is not tumbling o you're not getting adequate air flo out of the drye which basically suffocates the drye which basically suffocates the dryer element preventing it from drying, you can check this by turning the dryer on and finding out where the vent is outside and verify airflow is good. My guess would be the second is the problem

80 Series Gas Dryer - No Heat. All other parts

check outside drye vent where it goes through the wall they clog up with lint sometimes and force the escaping warm air to back up which causes sensor to give wrong reading if this is clogged just clear it till you feel the air coming through also check vent at bottom of dryer disconnect flex pipe and check for clogs there as well ..and always clear lint trap after every load
