Question about Kenmore 63942 Dryer
Hi, Sounds like everything mechanical and electrical is working. The sensors are located on the outbound air ducts. You may be able to improve things significantly by removing the dryer vent where it attaches to the rear (or side) of the machine, and cleaning the tube going into the machine. While you have it removed from the vent, remove the lint trap, use your vacuum crevice tool and clean the trap area. If you have the ability to blow air through the trap area, blow it through the crevice tool so that you are as far beyond the screen area as possible. Be warned that it may blow dust and lint from the vent, covering it with a piece of nylon stocking will catch most of it. The object of this whole exercise is, the exhaust air ducts collect dust and lint which collect moisture from the damp items, the sensor reacts to this so cleaning out as much of it as you can will help. Good Luck to You!

Yes, it is not common but it can. i'd check my vent line for a blockage first
