If your dryer doesn't heat, check these:
Power from the house
Power from the house Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.
Heating element Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.
Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)
Wiring A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

First off turn dryer ON and make sure there are no kinks in vent tube thats attached on back of dryer.2nd,find the outside vent opening and feel for strong air flow.If you have any doubt that its not strong enough then,pull dryer away from wall....pull the vent hose off the dryer ,.....now dry 1 load on a 50-60 minute Timed Dry Cycle.If all goes well, you now know your venting has to be cleaned out.(The only 1out of 1,000 other thing to check is your lint screen ,make sure you can see light through it.) 3rd and final , is if after running for 60 minutes with vent un hooked and still it is not drying competly,than you have to replace the Split coils on the burner,I really can doubt that you have a thermostat out.If you need to know the stats of the Split Coil to Thermostat ratio my experience is 250 Split Coils replaced to just 1 thermostat. Please Rate This !!!!
