Check to make sure your dryer vent hose isn't plugged. This may mean walking outside and looking into the louvers of the dryer vent to look for obstructions. Typically, toothpicks, paperclips coins and other things left in pockets will get stuck in the dryer vent hose which restricts airflow. This could not only cause a fire but air flow restriction prevents the dryer form drying your clothes. Also, make sure you feel heat after the dryer has run for a minute. If not, the heat element of thermal fuse may be bad and need replaced.
You may have a clogged air vent, check that the air vent hose is not smashed, if it is not smashed, have your dryer vent cleaned professionally, all the way from where the dryer connects to the wall to where the vent leaves the home,
Recheck the dryer operation, dryer vents should be cleaned every other year for optimum performance
Make sure your vent pipe is clean and filter is clean. Air flow is number one reason for dryer failure, Check the whole inside of the dryer for lint build up and in the exhaust pipe. The dryer has to vent the humid air in order to dry the clothing. If it can't do that, it overheats and also the humidity stays inside the dryer.
cleaning the vent is always a good thing, But check the outside vent cover, some of them have a flap inside that sometimes get clogged with lint especially if damp, The only way for moisture to leave a dryer is to have a clear shot for the heat to escape , thats all done through the vent, if it has moisture in it, something is blocking its escape
times one pole of a double pole breaker may trip allowing the dryer to
operate but with no heat. Go to the electric panel and reset the circuit
breaker for the dryer. Also check to insure there is air flow at the
vent a clogged vent willl prevent clothes from drying
This problem may be the result of a dirty lent filter which if clogged will short cycle the dryer and the clothes will still be damp when done. Also a dirty exhaust pipe (usally 4") will prevent the clothes from drying correctly. Make sure that the air is leaving the machine. To do this you have to go outside when the machine is running.
Sounds like a venting problem at the house pipe.
Make sure the house venting pipe is completely clean and vent hood just outside is free of any blockages.
If all that is cleaned I would check all working thermostats and high limit thermostat as well.
