Question about Kenmore Elite HE4 Electric Dryer
It could be the fuse which mounts on the blower next to the thermistor which judges temp or the thermistor itself could be open. Or the flame detection sensor might be open and not allowing power to the ignitor.
Note: Use the manual to find the tech sheet and use the tech sheet to find the fault.

check the thermal fuse 3392519 located on the blower wheel housing,if the dryer hasn't had a clean out and lint is everywhere most likely it will be the fuse,check it with a meter,pull one of the wires off and read it out,your model number shows the filter on top so unplug the dryer,pull out the filter,take out the two screws on top where you pulled out the filter,take the vent line off and take off the back panel,on the left you'll see the duct that the filter slides into,take out the four screws holding it in and clean the duct out,when you put it back on look to the right and down around 4 inches up off the floor and you'll see the white thermal fuse,read it out,if that's good then you gotta make sure you're getting power to the ignitor,and read out the ignitor,the sensor and the gas coils,hope this helps,you don't have a heater relay on this model

Srart by pulling each thermostat wires and tape them together until you find the bad one. You should have 3 of them to test.

if the ignitor was glowing you could have bad gas coils or a bad gas valve.check the coils with a meter to make sure they are good,also when you read out all the other parts did you remove at least one of the wires from the part,if not you'll get false readings.if the coils are good make sure the wires are pushed on tightly and check the metal connectors inside the plastic wire connector that slides onto the coils,i've found some that were messed up and not making a connection with the coil.also on one of the coils there's a metal sleeve, i think it's the coil with three prongs on it,check the old coil to see if it's stuck inside the old coil,if it is stick a screw driver in it,push it out and slide it back on the post and slide the coil back on the post,if everything checks ok you could have a bad gas valve,try wacking it with something to see if it will let the gas through.let me know what you find with the meter and how you make out,
