Question about Kenmore 64952 Electric Dryer
I have a Kenmore Elite 649732 Electric Dryer. It runs fine in both timed and autodry modes with no heat (Air Fluff). However, when using heat, the unit stops after 20-30 seconds in all modes. At first it seems like the heating element is overheating and kicking off but that seems weird since I can restart the unit immediately and it will run for another 20-30 seconds.
Rbf, in looking Im not finding a 649732, but I do find a 649723. This dryer has a even heat board but also a thermistor. If you had to hold the start button for it to run, I would suspect the even heat board. That's not the case so Im suspecting a open or shorted thermistor. If you remove the lower panel it sits right behind the blower housing next to the thermal fuse. Should be black in color. Part number 3976615. The thermistor should ohm out at about 10k ohms plus or minus 3. When one of these thermistors fails usually you get the symtom your describing. Catriver.

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.
if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....
If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.
