Ok so I will admit that I do not know much about repair work.  But I do know that I do not want to pay someone else a lot of money if I can do it myself.  I am just looking for any help anyone can give me.

My dryer is less than 2 years old.  It seems to be working fine except for the fact that it is not getting warm much less hot enough to dry my clothes.

Alrighty , I guess nobody is jumping right in on this one so... have you checked your breaker /fusebox for tripped breaker /blown fuse- if one side of the 240vac is out the motor will run but no heat. Also, do you have a multimeter for making electrial checks? Can't do much more than guesswork if not. Do tell.

We do sleep and have another life sometimes outside of the internet.....;)  ... Have you tried the dryer with the vent hose disconnected to see if you might have an air flow blockage from the dryer to the outside also??

Thank you both for your replys sorry that it took me so long to get back on this.  With the holiday and work I have been swamped this week.  Usually the best time for something like this to happen.  I checked the electrical and disconnected the dryer vent everything seems to be ok.  My stepfather seems to think that it is the heating element.  If that is the case could you please tell me how to replace this as I would like to be able to do it myself.  Thank you in advance for you help.

dont just go replaceing the heating element without being pretty sure that that is your problem and with it being only 2 years old i doubt thats the source. Go to fixitnow website and look around theres great how-to's there. Youll have the thing up and running in no time. Make sure you have a continuity tester and youre good to go

Thank you to everyone that helped.  The problem was the heating element.  It is fixed and my life is saved from the laundry mat.

Glad to see you got it going, but BTW ....be pro active and not reactive, less than 2 years for a heating element is uncommon and the most likely cause of this shortened life span is your venting. Make sure you have a good strong air flow and that your lint filter is completely clean.
