What type of power cord do i need?
An electric dryer has an opening in the back, older units use a three prong cord, there will be three posts to attach cord, newer units have four prong cords, Bought separately. there will be four posts to attach, double grounded cord.
I turned the knob for 45 min drying time and it was still running 3 hours later and no heat now.
Very likely you now have 2 problems.
First, the timer has "failed", and is not advancing.
That should require a new or used timer.
Those are available many places, such as "Sears Parts Direct" (this web site will give you the part number of the part you will need), Amazon, or e-bay.
Next, you may or may not need some part that will let the dryer heat.
There could be one of about 6 or 8 parts that have failed, each one will need to be checked with an electric meter to find that faulty one. Again, "Sears Parts Direct" will help you with the part number when you need a part.
God bless your efforts.

Belt tensioner and belt came off
Unplug, remove the screws at lint trap, do not drop in trap! Press in on the clips at the front edge approximately and inch in from each side, lift top. Remove the screws on the inside of front pane;, unplug door switch, tilt front forward and lift the front off. The idler pulley (what you are calling tensioner ) slips in the slots in front of the motor. This link has a picture of how the belt is installed I wrote this article a while ago How Replace The Belt on Your Whirlpool Dryer
Admiral dryer not heating
I have no idea what dryer your talking about due to the fact that there is no model number posted!
most dryers have two thermal fuses which can be found in the diagram.
The timer can be at fault with a contact not closing.
Motor switch could be at fault, closes heat circuit after motor starts. Diagram again!
dDont throw parts at it until you verify the cause, you have spent enough already.
