It's very possible that you disconnected one wire or the plug is ajar. Check both. There is plate, upper left back, you can remove with one screw to check the for connections,you should have 230 volts between the two outside wires. If you dont have it here check at plug and breaker. If you do have it you'll need to remove top and locate a small normally automatic resetting thermal switch mounted on the back top of heating element you can just jumper across the wire are slice the spade terminals together to test or if you have a voltohmeter check to see that it's closed. Most likely its an incoming power problem.

When your dryer heats yet does not dry the clothes its usually always a poor air flow problem. What needs to checked is for lint build up in the blower housing,a chushed and or restricted vent from the rear of the dryer or anywhere to where it exits the house.
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 please come back to Fixya and rate my advice!
is there rubber on the bottom of the feet?also i've seen in laundry rooms at one time or another the vent line on the dryer popped off or had a hole in it and lint got on the floor and under the washer,it finds it's way under the feet,try tilting the washer back and with a steel brush or sand paper clean off the bottom of the feet and see if that helps,also clean the floor under the washer.you may have to replace the rubbers on the feet.good luck
I know you cleaned the lint filter so I won't even mention it:)
Is it possible that your vent hose runs along the floor (perhaps behind the dryer, or maybe even under a raised floor beneath your dryer - as mine used to) before going up and out to the outside vent? If so it could be that water has seeped in through the vent opening from outside and become trapped in the hose and is acting like a drain trap and blocking moist air from escaping which is causing the clothes not to dry.
This is what happened to mine once anyway. A cracked vent flap was all it took for the water to build up over time. Unfortunately mine ran under the floor and I had to actually tear up my floor in order to remove the water without having it flow all over my house. Fixed the drying problem though (and a new vent flap insured that it didn't happen again).
