Question about Kenmore Dryers
If this is a gas dryer, you probably have bad valve coils, they can work intermittently, usually for the first part of a cycle, but when they heat up the internal resistance gets too high and they fail to open the gas valve. Once they cool off, (by continuing to air dry) they will work again for a few minutes. They will also make a buzzing/rattling (maybe "metal" ) noise as voltage is applied. For any Kenmore gas dryer, get part #279834 it contains both valve coils. Very easy to replace. Another possibility is that your duct work is plugged, check airflow. Hope this helps.
