Question about Dryers
First the blower fan was not turning on the shaft, fixed that problem. Turned dryer on last night, it was still running this morning and it is not making any heat. Vent and filter is clean and no blockages.
SOURCE: dryer takes too long to dry
You have an airflow restriction and it's most likely in the vent inside the wall leading outside. I know this because the dryer is trying to do its' job (and that the default "fail" mode on the t'stats is "open". That is to say... if a t'stat fails, the dryer won't heat).
The only other thing that causes an overheat condition is a failed blower assy. When these fail, though, the dryer makes an awful racket. And since you didn't mention an awful racket, I go with clogged vent pipes in the walls.
When my customers call who have the same symptoms as you, I don't even bother running the service call (costs me money, but I'm an honest guy). I recommend they call a dryer vent service or a chimney sweep service.
Hope this helped!
P.S. The way to test my diagnosis is simple. Disconnect the dryer vent from the wall and start the dryer. That's it! You'll see the dryer will function normally.

If the dryer won't heat up, the problem is typically either a blown thermal fuse or a faulty heating element. The thermal fuse is located just inside the back of the dryer on or near the exhaust duct. It is about one inch long. The thermal fuse and heating element can be tested using an ohm meter or multimeter. These components should have continuity. If either does not, that component is faulty. There is no telling if the moving around of the machine caused the problem or if the timing of the problem was coincidental. Sure hope this helps ya and best wishes.

SOURCE: AF Error Code
If thats not it, then you nay have a faulty sensor.
AF Restricted Airflow Condition
"AF" flashes if a restricted airflow condition exists. Check to make sure the lint screen is clean, the door seal is in place and the vent is not
