My Kenmore 400, Mod 110.68432700, Ser MU4103673, Type DWJR-ELE-2406028 trips the breaker at the breaker-box after a few minutes of running (either low or high heat). No problems with the breaker when I...

Standard house boards trip only with two things high load or high earth leakage.
First stop check the plug wiring pay particular attention to the tightness of each terminal. Unplug and check along the incoming cable for breaks, crushes ,traps,etc.

If this fails unplug and have a look at the internal wiring, it can become brittle and touch the outer casing because the insulation is missing, check if any terminals inside are loose as well. Failing all that the heating element will probably be in a poor state and will probably cost more to replace than to buy new.

Whirlpool Electric dryer type-DWJR-ELE-2406028-FM54. model LER7646JQO the heating element get very hot. the dryer does not turn on. the drum does not turn either.

If the heating element is getting very hot that means there is no air flow across it. If the drum doesn't turn then the blower is not turning causing the element to get very hot. Could be drum belt, drum rollers, or motor.

It appears the heating element went out on our older Kenmore dryer - Type DWJR ELE 2406028 FM54. mod 110.62622101. Is this an easy fix?

Yes it is fairly easy to replace from the back. First verify it is the element and not the thermal fuse or a loss of one leg of the 240VAC circuit.

if you take the back off of your dryer and look for a little white thermo fuse with 2 wires on it if you unhook the wires and plug them together than start the dryer if it starts shut it off and replace the fuse and clean your venting

Dryer runs no heat

Sounds to me you either blew the fuse or tripped the circuit for the heating element. Try replacing the fuse or resetting the breaker before trying any repairs.

Dryer don't blow hot air, everything else runs ok.

you need to check the heating element and the thermal fuse to see if they are blown.
