So this is a gas dryer and the fact that it was working poorly at first and then altogether quit indicates to me that either your vent got clogged and the fuse blew, or your gas coils are getting weak and need to be replaced. Below is a video on how to test your fuse so you can determine if it's good or bad still.

CLICK HERE for fuse video

If the fuse is bad, replace it and clean the vent through your house. If the fuse checks good, replace the gas coils so below is a link to the part you'd need to order as well as a video at the bottom of the link that shows you how to replace it.
