I hope you got this fixed by now but if not I'll put in my 2 cents.. I assume that your dryer is electric and not gas. Assuming that is true then you probably have an open heater element.. similar to this used in electric stoves... There may also be other components that could have failed and in so doing, disabled power to that element. Could be a contactor or temp switch/thermistor.. Hope this helps and that you've already solved the problem...

The heater and stats are located at the rear of the m/c behind a removable panel.
you need a meter to test them, more likely to be a stat problem, but again you must test them for continuity.
Plz leave feed back for my solution.
Thanks.

SOURCE: GE spacemaker dryer won't start

Have you tried keepin the dryer door open, depressing the safety switch which enables the dryer to work when it is closed, and then turn on the dryer to see if it turns at all? Sometimes its the smallest things that cause these problems. That switch that gets pressed when the door closes, sometimes malfunctions. Sometimes the door of the dryer gets out of whack and doesnt really make contact with the switch enough to trigger the flow of electricity.

Dryer runs but does not heat


If the dryer is electric, you most likely have one of two issues going on...

1. An electric dryer uses 240VAC to operate. That's actually two 120 volt circuits wired into the dryer. One circuit runs the drum motor and controls while the other is dedicated to running the heating element. Check both legs of this circuit for blown fuses, etc.

2. The heating element may be worn out. You can check continuity of the element to see if it has an open circuit inside.

If the dryer is gas, there are a number of possibilities... post again if that's the case.

Good luck.

Dryer runs but does not get hot and dry


It runs since the motor is still working and turning the drum. No heat since the heater element is broken so no heat got produced to dry clothes. Replace the heater element to correct the problem. Good luck

Dryer doesn't heat up


Take the back off the dryer and then take the heating element out and look for the coil wire to have a break in it. I have replaced serveral heating elements.

Replaced dryer belt dryer was heating now isn't


There could be 2 problems coming into play here. 
1. Check to make sure there is no blockage in the vent piping. If the vent is blocked and the air cannot discharge from the dryer, the heating element will overheat and the overtemp thermostat will turn the heating element off.  (By the way, Blocked vent is usually the No. 1 Culprit in problems like this.)
2. Check the heating element and make sure that the heating coils are all intact. An open or shorted heating coil will cause the same symptom.
