Hello there:
If` you ahve already checked all of the filters and they are ok than your drying cycle has problems to check these check these: Heating element Drying fan Thermostat Heating element Your dishwasher has an electrical heating element that helps to dry the dishes.

Will not get hot when drying


There are a few possibilities- I'll take you through them:
1) Most probable: your heating element has gone bad- actually they usually break when they go bad/burn out. This will likely require some skill and some instructions for you to repair- plan on replacing the heating coil and the door seal for good measure, especially if the unit is more than 10 years old.
2) Less probable but possible: are you sure your drum is tumbling? if not, your clothes won't dry and you'll lose the element in short order.
3) yes less probable but still possible- the contacts on the switch dedicated to heat settings or the thermostat have gone bad, denying current to the heating element.
Good luck!!

Kenmore Dryer, Model # 11063102100, does not dry.


Does the drum still turn. If so probably just needs a new heating element. VERY easy to replace. Usually instructions to replace on or in new element box or just google instructions.
New heating element would be my first move to repair dryer.
Also, if you use softeners or dryer sheets, Wash lint screen with dawn and soft scrub brush to remove oils and residue (even if it dont look like there is none there there is) to extend your heating element use.

No heat will come from the dryer


Check the dryer breaker pair in the house electrical box. Push off, then on. If the breakers trip immediately, then you have a direct short circuit in the dryer, usually the heating element which involves removing the drum to get at the element(s). If the breakers hold, then try the dryer. If you get heat--ok. If drum turns, but no heat--check with a voltmeter across the two slanted slots in the power socket. You should read ~220 volts AC. If near zero, then one of the breakers is probably bad. Get an electrician to replace the breaker pair.
