Heat cuts out shortly after dryer starts. Have taken apart several times. First replaced thermal cut off (tested bad) and thermostat. Element ok. Good airflow. Dryer seems to heat up very quickly and very...

Sure can!
Most Kenmore style dryers have a heating element that has a long wire coil inside it, (often there are two wires or elements inside one housing). Regardless, if you have carefully checked the air exhaust, and you find it is "perfect" ( means no back-up heat from a plugged or impeded air flow) and you have determined the air flow inside the machine is like new, ( no back up there either), then what has possible happened is the wire heating element has wiggled loose and is touching itself, thereby shorting out and making super heat.
The wire coils are usually held loosely in place with white ceramic rings, to keep them from touching the metal housing. If you carefully remove the heating element "box or "tube" and look inside , you may be able to see the problem. Testing it with an ohm meter will not work, it will simply test OK. The element is made to heat at a certain temperature according to it's length, if it touches itself, the elecrttricity will take the shortest route and may make your element glow white hot in one spot. Be blessed.

I would change the control thermostat. It is mounted next to the skinny white fuse on the filter housing under the dust cover on the back side.

Doesn't heat up

Sheri, This says that you have an electric dryer and that it fails to create hot air. It can be 2 issues. (1) the electric heating coil (behind a panel in the lower back of the dryer) has broken and must be replaced or (2) the air duct work inside the dryer is clogged and the heated air is unable to pass through the dryer.

If you are sure that air is flowing, the it is the coil and to replace it, remove the panel screw and locate the 2 mounting screws for the heating coil. Remove it and take it to your local appliance parts place and ask for another. Insert that, connect and fasten as the original and you should be of and running

Hi, open the back panel. You will find a black cutout switch with a red button on it. Press the red button to reset the heating mechanism. Close the back panel and test the machine.

Dryer doesnt blow hot air.

I find that quite often the ignitor is out of alignment or the glass window is covered with lint.
a gas dryer blows air through a burner assembly to heat the air. The burner assembly consists essentially of a gas valve, ignitor and a flame sensor. If any part of the burner assembly malfunctions, the result will be low or no heat and slow drying of the clothes.
There are two common styles of ignitors, glow ignitors and spark ignitors. The ignitor ignites the gas either by heating up and glowing, or by sparking. If the ignitor fails, the dryer will not heat.

The easiest way to check the ignitor is to observe it. Remove the small access panel in front, select a high temperature setting and start the dryer. Watch the burner assembly, shortly after starting the dryer the ignitor should begin to glow or spark. If you see it glow or spark, then the ignitor is working.

Our dryer does not blow hot air? The cloths do not

more than likely the heating element has gone out. if your clothes have no heat then the element is the most likely cause. you can get one for anywhere between $30 - $50. you'll need to know model and serial #'s. usually easy to replace.

Dryer not drying loads properly.

You need to clean the vent ducting from the point where it leaves the dryer to where it exits your home. The reason the dryer performed better was because it was not meeting any resistance from the ducting to push air through the exhaust on the back of the dryer. You obviously have a clog, kink, excessive bend, or a run that is too long. If you haven't had your vent ducting inspected or cleaned in a while, now would be a good time. In addition, the fact that your dryer became excessively hot WITH the ducting attached adds credence to my suspicion that your ducting is clogged or obstructed in some way. Without proper air flow the dryer will actually overheat to the point of failure. Usually the Thermal Cut-Out (also known as a Thermister) will blow. This component is designed to blow like a fuse in the event of an overheat condition and must be replaced. Running your dryer in an overheat condition not only will damage the appliance, but it can become a fire hazard. I would recommend a thorough ventilation inspection and cleaning. Make sure you are using the metallic semi-rigid ducting and NOT the plastic ducting. The semi-rigid resists crushing, kinking, is heat resistant and resists intrusion by rodents. If you have questions about anything I've explained to you, please contact me and let me know. I hope this helps.

GE Profile dpsr473ewoww timer doesn't work and heat level is low

We should address the heat problem first. If your dryer complaint is "heat seems low" or taking "too long to heat", this is commonly confused for other problems. When in fact, you may really have a "ventillation problem". Do you feel (with hand) alot of hot air pressure coming out the back of the dryer or house vent-line (for dryer)?

I would disconnect and clean the dryer exhaust vent/duct (at wall and machine). Then, while leaving the vent-line disconnected temporaily, test and run your dryer. You may see an signficant improvement.

Does it heat up better?
Do you feel alot of hot air and pressure coming out the back of the dryer?
When connected; do you feel alot of hot air pressure coming out of your house dryer vent?

You have a blockage in the heat baffle. While this is not difficult to clear, this is more than I can explain on a forum like this.
