what type is this electric or gas? have you removed the exsaust from the wall and ran a load like this? if you have heat and this is an electric dryer it sounds like you have a blockage in your house. if the dryer runs fine without the exsaust attached then that is your problem. let me know

Your gas dryer uses a pilot-less burner assembly that has an electric igniter. It is designed this way to prevent free-flowing gas from filling up the appliance cabinet without ignition. Such a condition could cause an explosion. The way the ignition system in most of today’s appliances work is like this:
1. Press the start button.
2. The igniter on the burner assembly begins to glow.
3. Once the igniter reaches the required current potential, the gas safety valve opens.
4. Gas is introduced into the manifold and you have ignition.
NOTE: It can take roughly 30 – 90 seconds from the time you press start to the time it takes for the gas to ignite.
If you are having problems with ignition, it may be something as simple as a bad igniter. Just because an igniter glows, does not necessarily mean it is good. They do become weak with age and if they do not draw the required current potential, they will not allow the gas safety valve to open. There are two basic types of igniters:
Carborundum (Cylindrical in shape) – needs to produce 2.5 to 3.0 amps for the gas safety valve to work.
Norton (Rectangular in shape) – needs to produce 3.2 to 3.7 amps for the gas safety valve to work.
NOTE: There is a UNIVERSAL FLAT BAR igniter on the market as well, that can be used as a substitute if the igniter type that came with your range is not available.
Your igniter appears to be the Norton type. The part number is 279311 and can be purchased at pcappliancerepair.com for about $22. Instructions should be included with the parts kit. NOTE: If the igniter connector plug does not match the one you have, there are instructions that explain how to cut and splice the connections using a set of ceramic wire lugs included with the kit. Do not use standard wire lugs as they will melt due to heat. CAUTION: Make sure you unplug the dryer and turn off the gas source prior to servicing.
If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please post back so I may be able to assist you better. I hope you find this information helpful. PS Use model number 110.76912690 for your search criteria.

The element is supposed to cycle on and off thru out the drying cycle as not to burn clothes. Is it just taking too long to dry. If it is your exhaust from the wall behind the dryer to the outside is clogged somehow. I like to use a leaf blower stuck inside the exhaust behind the dryer and blow the whole line out to the outside of the home.
