Several things could cause this problem. A model number would help & what is working OK & what is not working OK. If you can send this info it would help track down the problem.Check to see if you are getting good air flow from the vent out side of house or where ever it's coming out. If it is stopped up it can cause this problem.If low air flow, clean inside the machine where the blower is could be full of lint or have junk where the blower is pincels nails or anything keeping the fan bade from turning. Clean vent from dryer to the outside of house.Clean any lint you see. If this don't take care of it check
high temp cutout , all thermostats & thermal fuses. Heating element could be shorted to the case & you would get half as hot. Hope this helps
Good luck. Check fan blade for cracks or being stripped & motor won't turn it.
