2000 Durango heater control

When you select any setting on the vents - upper, floor, defrost - they work fine with the temp control set on cold. Move the temp control towards heat and the airflow gets completely restricted in any setting. Move the temp back to cold and the air comes blowing out. It's briefly very warm, so I know the heater core is working.

Any ideas?

Sounds like a clogged heater core.

If the heater core was clogged, I would expect there to be no heat. But like I said, you can briefly feel the heat when you turn the temp control back to cold and the airflow comes back.

It's the airflow from the vents that gets cutoff when you move the temp control from cold to hot.
