You need to check your venting to make sure it is clean and air is flowing well.

Your dryer could have worn seals, which cause it to over heat and cycle on the limit.

Your dryer could have overheated and caused the thermal fuse to open, with this the heat will not work at all.

Have you checked your circuit breaker or fuses to make sure one is open. the dryer would still run but wont heat if a fuse is blown.

ask more questions, reply with model number.
