A couple of possibilities to check. First, is the lint trap empty? If so, then the symptoms point to hot air bypassing the drum. Look for broken or misaligned plastic ducting inside the dryer itself. Check the exhaust air for moisture, as that is a better indicator than temperature. Don't forget that towels hold an enormous amount of water, & can be extremely long in drying, especially if not spun enough.

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.

have the exact same problem, just over 1 year old no heat! first off my duct work under my floor is like a snake and is not a straight shot out of the house. I beleive this caused a ristriction in the venting because dyer seemed to be running hotter them normal. I took the top off the dryer and pulled the vent tube out of the bottom of the dryer. To my surprise found a three inch layer of lint on the bottom of the machine and also on the heating coil. After cleaning out all the lint i took a volt meter to the two wires that come down to the heater. started the dryer and found i had 220volts at the heater indicating the heater is out, found one on ebay for about 50 bucks. will be installing this weekend and will let you know how it works.

This is for the ELECTRIC MODEL Only. I have the DV448AEPl and had the same problem... I cleaned all of the lint from every nook and cranny and ordered a "repair kit" from Sears (http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Samsung-Parts/Dryer-Parts/Model-DV448AEPXAA/1482/0151200?searchedModel=dv448&blt=) there is even a blow up of the parts there - I ordered part numbers , DC47-00015A, thermostat, DC47-00018A - thermostat and DC47-00019A - dryer heater. The heater is relatively easy to get to if your not squeamish about removing some screws and taking the front off the dryer. Once the front is off you can clean even more lint from the dryer. Remove the heater unit by unscrewing the single screw accessed from the front of the dryer and then disconnecting all of the connectors.
Lastly - once I took the heater assembly out I found that a dime had made its way into the heater coil and was shorting it out... Probably could have got by by just removing the dime and cleaning the coil but I figured that since I was elbow deep in the thing I might as well clean it all up and install the new parts.... Cost of parts was about $80.00 w/shipping. Cost of a repairman to knock on my door here is $150 so I came out ahead on this one... Good luck.

I think your heating element is burned out. You can find parts at repairclinic.com
If you remove the element (unplug it first of course) you will be able to tell if it is burned out by looking at the actual heating coils. If there are any breaks in the wire anywhere you know its the problem.
