SOURCE: Only heats on timed drying
Our Kenmore dryer had the same sort of problem (different catchy names.
Problem was that in "smart" modes (by what ever name, the timer motor runs in series with a "dampness" sensor (thermostat, actually, I think) and A RESISTOR.
Resistor burns out--this is the symptom set.

Check the ventilation for lint. You may need to replace the duct vents if you have any. The lint tends to build up and prevent the dryer igniter from staying on thus the clothes do not dry all the way.

Sounds like a venting problem at the house pipe.
Make sure the house venting pipe is completely clean and vent hood just outside is free of any blockages.
If all that is cleaned I would check all working thermostats and high limit thermostat as well.

Howdy: It seems the "smart switch settings" has died. It is in the switching circuit. It all comes in one unit. Take it out and have it tested at an appliance store. Good luck - Doug
