Question about Dryers
Are you 100% certain the dryer has 240 VAC? Just because a light may light does not guarantee both legs of 240 VAC are hot.
If you measured motor continuity, then you must be able to read a wiring diagram/schematic. Most Kenmore units have a wiring diagram/schematic glued to the back of the rear service panel, or folded and stored in the control head.
I am unable to find a wiring diagram on the internet, but, you have a door switch, and the timer/control.
Use the wiring diagram to trace the signal path's to determine where the failure is.
Let me know if you have any questions and I will do my best to help.
