Question about Dryers
I will assume that you are getting heat, as you have not mentioned that the heat is not working...
so beyond that the next thing I would do would be to remove the hose from the back of the dryer. see if it works with the hose removed. If it does the problem is a plugged vent, if it does not the problem is in the dryer.
If the dryer vent is plugged then take it apart and clean it.
If it is in the dryer then the blower is probably full of lint and will need to be taken apart and cleaned.
Here is a tip that I have written about this problem...
Ifyour dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have not takenthe time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then you need todo that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should take place. Lintbuild up in the dryer duct is one of the main causes for your dryerto fail.

Thanks for using FixYa. From what you have described it seems to be the Thermal fuse that has gone bad. The thermal fuse is mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. When this fuse goes bad it should be replaced as it cannot be repaired. Please accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
