Question about Kenmore 64952 Electric Dryer
My dryer is running and heating. However it cuts off after just 5-10 minutes of running sometimes it does run longer. The sensor does not seem to be sensing that the clothes are still wet and need to run a full cycle.
Some models have a thermistor that also senses moisture in the exhaust air. If you remove the kick panel on the bottom it is a black sort of oval shaped part with 2 small wires on top. It is right on the blower housing. you might try taking a resistance check on it. All kenmores have a tech sheet behind the top control panel. just remove the rear cover and it is in there. It will tell you what the resistance should be. But my gut feeling is if the dryer is heating up its not a heat problem or any kind of sensor. I think you have a vent problem. Check and see if there is a good hard flow out the vent. If not replace the dryer vent and also remove the front panel of the dryer and clean out the part wher the lint filter go's in and also the blower wheel itself. This style dryer has a bad habbit of clogging up in the 2 places I decribed. Good luck

There is a sensor bar usually two on the inside of the dryer either in the front where the lint trap is or in the back right corner u will have to take the machine apart to ensure that the wire is firmly connected to thsoe sensor bars that would be the first thing i would recommend u check symptoms are itruns for about ten minutes and cuts off and clothes are still damp but time cycle works fine.
