CHECK FOR 240VOLTS AT THE OUTLET. A DRYER WILL RUN ON HALF THE 240 VOLT CIRCUIT BUT WON'T HEAT.
IF THE VOLTAGE IS THERE, CHECK FOR 240 VOLTS AT THE HEATER. IF IT IS THERE AT THE TERMINALS OF THE HEATER, AND THERE IS NO HEAT, THE HEATER IS BAD.
IF NO VOLTAGE IS PRESENT, TRACE BACKWARDS THROUGH THE HEAT CIRCUIT AND CHECK EACH COMPONENT IN THAT CIRCUIT. IF ONE OF THEM HAS 240 VOLTS PRESENT, THAT IS THE BAD COMPONENT.
POSSIBILITIES ARE, HIGH LIMIT THERMOSTAT, CYCLING THERMOSTAT, THERMAL FUSE, MOTOR CENTRIFUGAL SWITCH, HEAT SELECTOR SWITCH, TIMER. POWER CORD.

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.
Below is a link that will help you with parts and diagnostic procedures that are specifically tuned to your manufacturers data plate information.
If your dryer seems to run forever, it could be because of a clogged vent or internal ductwork. Your dryer may have an automatic cycle that turns off the dryer when the clothes are dry. It does this with a special thermostat or moisture-sensing system.
Normally, this is what happens during an automatic cycle:
This cycle continues until the clothes are dry. But…if the vent is clogged, the dryer may never reach the proper operating temperature, so it doesn't send the signal to the timer and the dryer continues to run indefinitely, even if the clothes are completely dry. To fix the problem, clean the vent and/or internal ductwork

I can't speak for which one is best, but I I can help you fix the no heat problem.
I am assuming it's electric heat. If it is, I bet the element has failed. If you know how to troubleshoot with a volt-ohm meter, I can walk you through the repair.
Let me know if you have the wiring diagram, or can find it on the appliance. Also let me know if you know how to read one.

if it is on sensor dry, check to see if the vent in your house or dryer is plugged. If it does this in time dry, there is probably a broken contact in the timer not allowing it to advance, and the timer would need replaced.
