Not heating or long dry time??  See if there is heat from the dryer exhaust with the vent hose removed, if so your vent is blocked.  If no heat you will need to see what part has failed, could be a popped breaker in your breaker box, wire burnt off of the terminal block where the cord attaches, timer burnt contacts, bad heat selector switch, bad motor switch 1-2, dead cycling thermostat, bad  safety thermostat, dead fuse on the canister, broken heating element, burnt wires in the heat circuit.  You have to help us help you, we cannot just tell you what part to replace, you have to check and see what part has failed.  Need to get your volt meter and ohm meter out and see what has failed.

Check the white thermal fuse in the dryer first its the most common   if the lint filter is is the door  you must remove the front panel and the blower housing (remove the lint filter first) check for continuity across the fuse if its not there replace it part # 3390719    ... If the filter is on top the thermal is the back       pt #  3390721      dont check these parts if you have some heat   check   the vent first   ......

Electric dryer with lint filter in top. Thermal fuse is in back, but generally kills the whole dryer on these if it fails. Before getting any tools out, check the circuit breakers for your 220V supply.

The thermofuse on the vent housing kills the whole dryer in the electric dryers, just kills the heat in the gas dryers, so will not apply in this model.

check the hi limit located on the burner / element shoot make sure that it is closed make sure the element is not broken and my favorite make sure the selector is not set to air dry?
