Check the exhaust tube that goes out the back of the dryer. It may be clogged with lint. Ours did this about a month ago and and a thurough cleaning did wonders. I bought a kit from Lowe's with all kinds of attachments. It was really easy.

If your dryer IS still heating, but your clothes still won't dry, you may want to check the dryer interior cabinet and/or the entire exhaust duct run to ensure you have no kinks or clogs anywhere. The following link explains many of the problems that can cause poor drying efficiency and longer dry times:
Before assuming you have a problem with the appliance, check your installation to ensure you are providing the dryer with proper exhaust and air flow. A dryer in a clogged state or having improper air flow will not dry efficiently and will cause the heating circuits to actually overheat. Eventually, this can lead to component failures and is the source of fire hazards.
If you have any questions, please post back with your complete MODEL NUMBER (located on a nameplate along the door opening) and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.
did you clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into?you still have a block somewhere and sounds like you popped the thermal fuse part 3392519,unplug dryer take off vent line and remove the back panel,take out the 2screws on top of dryer and remove lint filter,on left side remove the 4 screws and remove the duct,clean it out,to the right of it and around 4 inches up from floor you'll see the white thermal fuse,read it out with a meter,also if you have a long vent line from the wall to the outside blow it out with a leaf blower and make sure the outside flapper is blowing fully open
need to check vent system. restricted air flow
will reduce the amount of heat unit will give in result dry time will be extended. if no heat is detected then the thermal fuse needs to be replaced. thermal fuse blows when there is not enough air flow over heating element. meaning there is a restriction in the venting system.
So let me get this straight, you are getting heat from the gas burner and the drum rotates but your clothes remain wet? You can check a few basic things to identify where the problem lies.. First off, have you checked the lint trap and cleaned it? Secondly, have you checked your vent system ( meaning : are you sure it is not clogged anywhere in the duct or at the end where it exits outside? If that's OK.. when your system is drying clothes.. do you get hot air flow at the end of that duct? If not, your blower may not be working ..You need to move that hot air out of the tub for the system to dry. Heat, Motion to move clothes, air flow from the blower and an unimpeded path via the vent duct to outside.. Hope one of these things to check gets you going. Regards...
Stop !!! You are creating a much larger problem by trying to fix this at this point.To correct the problems it has now is not going to be practical to cost.My advise is to push this aside before you have a disaster.Buy a new /used dryer that is working and when it does need a repair you let me know,do not try to repair anything your not sure of because it makes it impossible to correct the added problems at a low cost.
