What is wrong with it? Unless it destroyed itself somehow you can fix it yourself.

If it runs but is cold air you can easily replace the heating coil yourowndamnself. I think there are youtube instructions.
I have done it a couple of times. Heating coil was cheap.

If it turns but doesn't heat there are several things to check.
First- make sure both legs of the outlet have power. Each should have 115 volts. If one is dead check the breaker. Sometimes one breaker will trip but not the other. If they are ganged it will look and feel as if it isn't tripped. Check for power on each hot leg.
If you have power check the thermal fuse. Look online for details on your dryer to find it. Use an ohm meter. If it shows open replace it. It is about $10.00.
If those are good check the thermal limit thermostats.
If all those are good check the heater coil itself.

It is probably one of those. I would check in that order- easiest and most likely first.
