1st I would check my breaker or fuses to make sure I was getting the correct voltage to the dryer.
2nd I would check the thermostats for continuity
3rd I would check the heating element. Check for continuity and to ground.. If it reads good but reads to ground you still have a bad heater.

One of these would cover about 98% of dryer repairs when the symptom is not heating. If you find that all of the above are good and still no heat. You may want to have a service tech look at the dryer. You really dont want to guess at parts like timers. It can get expensive fast. Good luck and happy fixin.

GE dryer dwsr463eg7ww timer isn't working and doesnt heat up

The heating element assembly warms the air before the air enters the dryer drum. If the dryer won't stop, it may be because the heating element assembly isn't working - which greatly increases the drying time. Check the heating element for continuity.

Hi this is Erik, my problem is that my dryer wont heat up it works but it doesnt heat up throws cold air

Your/The heating element needs to be replaced. You can repair it yourself...copy serial number and model type down and order element. Sears, Lowes, and Home Depot carry appliance parts for many names. You will have to order it. Relatively simple job...30-60 min job.

Dryer turns, heats, but takes forever to dry a load of clothes

you need to clean out the dryer,you have a block somewhere and if you don't take care of it you'll pop the thermal fuse or a need to clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,vac out the inside of dryer where the motor is and remove the vent line and blow it out,if it's a long run from the back of the dryer to the outside flapper i use a leaf blower to blow out the vent line,make sure the outside duct is open and nothing is blocking the air flow before you blow it.also if it's a gas dryer you could have bad gas coils if the clothes are just warm instead of hot when the load is done,turn the dryer on when it's cold,after it runs for 15 to 30 minutes check to see if the flame is still liting,if it isn't you have bad gas coils located on top of the gas valve,the coils will work until they heat up and then they fail after a while,if i can help with anything else let me know,good luck you should do the clean out once a year anyway so you don't have a fire and so your dryer will run correctly

No heat in gas dryer, gas good, elec good??

if the heat is on when the dryer is cold then shuts down after 15 to 30 minutes and doesn't lite for a long while you have bad gas coils,the gas should come on until it hits temp. then it shuts down,when the dryer calls for heat it will turn back on,if it stays on for short periods of time you might need to clean out the dryer,this will shut the gas down to soon,you need to clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,blow out the vent line,make sure the air is blowing outside with nothing blocking it and vac out the inside of dryer where the motor is

Dryer will run for a second and sound three beeps and stops.

Sounds like the door switch has gone bad., but your description is confusing.

First, it takes a few minutes for you to feel the air blowing hot, particularly when the dryer is in a cold garage. The heating elements have to heat up the mass of the metal, and any clothes in the dryer.

The timer design is such that it can not speed up (the motor inside wont start running faster, due to it's electrical design.).

I am suspect that the door switch has failed for some reason, because reading between the lines, I think you are saying when you release the Start button, the dryer quits operating. If the door switch is bad, then it will cause that condition to happen.
