Dryer Isn't Drying Clothes

I have a propane (natural gas) dryer. I have cleaned inside the "box" and got a lot of lint out, cleaned the vent hose, and cleaned the vent. It isn't heating to dry the clothes.

I did call them and they said to do all of the things that I did. It was working fine before I put the hose back in the wall to the vent outside. Now it isn't working, I have just this morning taken it back out and it still doesn't heat up to dry the clothes. Help, any ideas?

All gas dryers have an ignition element that ignites the gas, and it's probably worn out and needs to be replaced.

Check out these two websites.

Yep, your heating element is dead. You need a new one, even if one heats clothes to WARM, it's supposed to be HOT, so sounds like yours needs to be replaced. The ideas they gave you were quick fixes if your element isn't dead.

Is it possible you are out of propane?
