Question about Kenmore Dryers
Although the dryer spins, there is no heat and the timer doesn't stop and end. It stops prior to the end.
First turn off both breakers then back on. Next, check the wiring from the receptacle to the plug to the back of the dryer. Next, the thermal switch under the top of the dryer next to or near the drum may be bad. Bypass it and see if you get heat. If so, then replace it for about $20. Your heating element may be bad also. You can visually check it and see if it is burned in 2. Now your timer is probably bad. They are easy to replace and fairly inexpensive.
I guess after looking at all this, you need to decide if it is all worth it to fix it. If it is more than 10-12 years old, you may be seeing the beginning of the end. If the thermal switch, the element, the timer are all bad, you may want to make room at the curve and take the door off for safety. Dryers aren't that expensive especially when you consider the hassle. Good luck and let me know how and what you do.
