Question about Kenmore 63942 Dryer
I have a Kenmore Elite Dryer model number 110.60942990 that won't stay on all the time. most the time it will run for about 5 minutes then shut off, I have to restart it 5 to 6 times per load to get a load dry. when I open the door there is plenty of heat. and I've learned if I hold the button for about 30 seconds it may run longer. any suggestions?
TThe wiring diagram for your dryer is shown in the first image below. A
thermal fuse is normally in the circuit to the igniter on many gas
dryers. I recommend checking this fuse. On dryer model 11073032102, you
can access this fuse by _unplugging the dryer, shutting off the gas
supply,_ and removing the bottom front service panel as shown in the
second image below. On some Kenmore dryers, you have to remove the back
panel to access the thermal fuse. The thermal fuse is located on the
blower housing . The third image shows the location
and replacement procedure. To test the thermal fuse, remove at least
one wire (with the dryer still unplugged) and measure the resistance
across the leads of the fuse with a volt/ohm meter. You should measure
near zero ohms (continuity). If you measure infinite resistance (open),
then the thermal fuse is blown and will need to be replaced.NOTE: If
the thermal fuse is blown, check the venting for your dryer. Restricted
exhaust venting can cause the thermal fuse to blow.

Venting. When elements or thermostats burn out it is almost always caused by venting restrictions. Vent is plugged with lint, smashed(usually from the dryer being pushed back to far) vent run is too long, or nylon stocking on vent outlet. Also check to see if you can pour water through your lint screen. Sometimes fabric softener builds up on the screen and restricts the air flow. Scrub your lint screen to get this build up off. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

The first suggestion I have for you is to simply run an Air Fluff cycle with no heat.
If the Air Fluff cycle runs okay then the problem is most likely with the thermistor.
You can try to run the dryer with the vent hose off and see if there is a difference.
