There are several things that can cause the dryer to not heat, but you'll need a multimeter to test the different thermostat, heater, and fuses. Below is a video that will show you how to access the dryer and test the different parts to determine what needs to be replaced if you have a multimeter to do that.

Do not have a multimeter. Could a lint clog cause the problem?
Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 3 months ago

Lint clogging could cause the fuse to fail and that could stop the unit from heating, but being clogged won't stop the dryer from heating completely.
