Remove the back panel.
Check the thermal cutoff it is on the top heating element cover. You can check it with an ohm meter. If it is bad replace it 309 degrees and the hi-limit thermostat (250 degrees) you can get a kit that has both in it. If the hi limit is bad it will blow the cutoff. If it starts after replacing them check all thermostats & remove the blower cover and clean any lint or junk from around the fan. Check the fan it may be broken or stripped Clean any lint you see anywhere lint or junk will not let the heat get out the vent.You may find pencils nails or anything keeping the blower from turning.Be absolutley sure the vent is clean all the way out of the house. Hope this will help you good luck.

My dryer does not heat. Fuse, thermostats, heat
It is possible that your dryer isn't heating because its heating element is defective. Heating elements are irrepairable. If yours has ceased to function properly, you will have to replace it. Open your dryer's cabinet and locate the heating element so that you can test it.
Another possible cause for a dryer not heating up could be attributed to a faulty thermal fuse. Once a dryer's thermal fuse has blown, it is no longer of any use. If your dryer's fuse is blown, you will have to replace it. Open up your dryer's cabinet and locate its thermal fuse so that you can test it.
If any of your dryer's thermostats have become defective, they could be the reason that your dryer is not heating. Open up your dryer's cabinet and test each of your dryer's thermostats. If any are faulty, replace them.
A defective timer motor could also cause your dryer to not heat up. Test your dryer's timer motor. If it is no longer functioning as it should, replace either the entire motor assembly, or just its motor.

Dryer cuts off after 10 minutes
Agree with you. Make sure the lint collector is clean and ditto for the vent. If it goes up to roof have to check it there also to make sure there are no obstructions whatsoever in vent line. Unit is turning off because it is overheating. If lint collector and vent is squeaky clean and unit blows out like crazy then the temp switch is opening up prematurely and might need replacement or jumping - your call.
