Question about Kenmore 62602 Electric Dryer
I checked heating element still have continuity across it and checked thermal fuse on dryer exhaust it still has continuity. there is a round disk with four wires on it could that have something to do with it
Sound like the vent duct going thru the wall to outside is stopped up / check your duct and outside dryer flap to make sure the air is open / if blocked it will take 2-3 times as long to dry and make it seem like the dryer isn't drying / larry

If the dryer tumbles but does not warm up, you either have one or two blown thermal fuses, a burned out element if it’s electric, or a burned out igniter if it’s gas.
If one of the two thermal fuses are blown you will not get heat. Thermal fuses blow (and are not resetable, they must be replaced) when the machine gets too hot. Often this is caused by not enough air flow through the machine. Check and make sure your exhaust vent is not clogged. Clean it the best you can to get all the lint, dead mice, bird nests, etc. out. Also make sure air is blowing out of the machine when it is turned on. If not you have a blower problem.
The thermal fuses are located on the element casing. They each have two wires coming out of them. They are about 3/4 inch round with screw ears on the sides so they are about 1 1/2 inch long and about an inch across. With a multimeter, check the continuity across the terminals. If there is no continuity the fuse needs to be replaced.
To check the element(s), you can either visually look and see if it is broken or check the continuity with a multimeter. No continuity means the element is broken. Replace if necessary.
To check for a broken igniter, take out the old one and look at it. If it looks broken or very burned, replace it.
