Check the breakers, then the wiring in the back. Make sure the wiring is connected good. Then the hi limit switch which is probably located under the top. (easy to remove).

Kenmore dryer DW4305295 - dry cycle will not stop,

When it completes a cycle, does it continue into the next cycle? The power switch might be bad if it does. You can take the switch apart and clean or repair it, or you can simply replace it. (They're not very expensive.)

My Kenmore Dryer stops before the time I set is up.

Sounds like the operating thermastat may be bad letting it get too hot and causing the motor breaker to kick out . When it cools it will start again. Check all thermastats.

It's not drying our clothes at all

Problem sounds like the heating element has gone out. Depending on the model, usually behind the drum. Needs to be taken apart and replaced.

Dryer stops but the timer continues on

Fixed! The "push to start" button was stuck. Must have been some dust. I pushed the knob a few times and that's all it took. Works fine now.

Kenmore 90 plus series dryer won't work

Sounds like the belt has broken. You could probably also use new drum support rollers. Check out this site which shows how to change a dryer belt:

It's not a difficult job if you're comfortable working with hand tools.

Run the dryer for a minute, then open the door and check for heat. If there is heat, the element is ok. If so, you've got a venting issue. If there is a restriction in the vent you won't be able to get as much air out, therefore you won't be able to get as much of the moisture trapped in the air out. The auto dry settings on some dryers require the operating thermostat to open to advance the timer. If there is a venting issue it may cause the dryer to cycle with the hi-limit thermostat instead. Of course, it should not affect the timed dry cycle. so if it won't advance there either you may have another issue. Try taking the vent off the back of the dryer and allow it to vent into the room. This may take care of both of your issues if the restriction is in the home venting, then you would need to sweep the home vent. It's also possible that the restriction is in the dryer blower housing. Without the vent hooked up, turn the dryer on and feel where the vent leaves the dryer. You should have a fairly strong movement of air, if not you'll need to disassemble the dryer and remove the restriction.
