Hi, I'm Daniel welcome to JustAnswer, Im reviewing your question now and will post back with your reply momentarily

If the dryer isnt getting hot then its more then likely the one shot thermostat at fault here.

What you need to do is remove the heater unit from the back and on there you will see 2 or 3 thermostats. Test them with a multimeter and see if its faulty.

If so look in the middle of it and see if theres a very small hole. If so get a pin and push it into there and press hard on it. This should rest the thermostat.

So retry it and fingers crossed that will cure this for you.

Let me know how it goes.
