Question about Dryers
I have a Kenmore dryer with the Automatic Fabric Care feature. It is recommended to use the Automatic Cycle on the dryer which is suppose to measure the moisture in the clothes and advance the dryness control accordingly. However, the control does not advance unless you run the dryer without any clothes. It will advance as it should if there are no clothes in the dryer. I'm not sure what item(s) should be replaced in order to get the Dryness Control to function properly with clothes in the dryer.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

SOURCE: Gas dryer runs too long
Sounds like you need a new timer.
The timer probably has a cam on it which triggers a micro switch
which turns off the timer clock motor.
Cams are often held in place with a set screw which might
have loosened and it is slipping.
Micro switch may have gone bad or has become disconnected.
if bad it can be replaced with a moderate amount of work.

Thanks for using FixYa. No Heat issue in dryer is usually caused due to two things mainly: Thermal Fuse, Wiring Harness. Start with checking the Thermal Fuse which is mounted inside the back cover panel to the exhaust duct and is mounted in white plastic housing. If thats fine then the Heating Element should be checked. Please do revert for further assistance or else accept the solution if the issue is resolved.
