Question about Dryers
It could be a hi or low thermistor or a run relay or the heater itself. All these parts you are able to check by conducting continuity tests on each piece, make sure the unit is unplugged when you conduct this test using a multimeter. Which ever piece showed having no continuity would be the one that was at fault make sure you also unplug one of the wires off each piece that you are conducting the test to or your test would be inaccurate if you have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped when our chat has fully concluded it allows me to continue helping others in similar situations in the future I await any further reply
p.s if this is a whirlpool or kenmore dryer i would first check the run relay found behind the rear panel of the machine Thanks again Rick

Investigate these five areas if your dryer is not heating up:
If your dryer won't heat up, it's possible that it is not being supplied with the proper voltage. Here are three ways to make sure power is getting to your dryer: First, make sure your dryer is plugged in. Next, check the circuit breaker panel to make sure all the circuit breakers are in the correct positions. Finally, check to make sure no fuses in your fuse panel are blown. Any of these could explain why power is not getting to your dryer.
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.

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.

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.
