Question about Frigidaire Dryers
Model number # fase7073lwo
I would first take the whole thing apart and check for a lint build-up somewhere in the ductwork inside the machine. This is not really connected to the filter screen you may have that is supposed to be cleaned before each use. This has to do with lint that builds up in the sheet metal or plastic pipes inside the machine, or the ductwork that is between the back of the machine and the outside air.
In the last 6 months, I have found 5 machines that were almost completely plugged up inside with lint, causing this same pronblem.

Have you checked the products website for recall info? The Kenmore is a Whirlpool product which of coarse is different than Maytag but they can carry the same internal parts because manufactures will buy from the same vendor. This would probably warrant a call to the company as this could cause a fire. But also, what can cause this issue is continuous small surges in power from the electric company. If you live within proximity of each other, this could be an issue. If you notice your lights blinking even a tiny bit, these are small intermittent surges. They can really mess up the electronics in all appliances. Hopefully this helps.

SOURCE: Dryer doesn't heat
The problem may not be the heating element. The following link explains how to troubleshoot a dryer no heat problem:
First, begin by unplugging the dryer and verifying the voltage at the wall receptacle. You should read 220-240VAC across the two Hot terminals (left and right slots). If the voltage is incorrect, check to make sure you don't have a breaker tripped. Some homes use 2 separate 120VAC breakers to provide power to the receptacle vice using one 240VAC breaker.
If the voltage IS correct, leave the dryer unplugged and remove the cover plate on the terminal block in the back of the dryer (this is where the power cord is installed). Plug the dryer back in and take a voltage reading across the two hot (RED and BLACK) wires at the terminal block. You should read 220-240VAC. If the voltage is good, you have an internal heating problem. If the voltage is bad at the terminal block, but good at the receptacle, you have a bad power cord.
The reason a dryer will still run if the input voltage is incorrect, is because the drive motor only uses a portion of the 220 service. The motor runs off 110-120VAC, while the heating circuits require 220-240VAC. So, if you are missing 1/2 your input voltage due to a tripped breaker or bad power cord, your dryer will exhibit these symptoms.
If you determine the problem to be internal, the heating circuits will either be located in the rear of the washer on the right hand, or under the dryer drum on the right hand side. Usually, an easy way to determine is by the location of the lint screen filter. If the filter is on top of the dryer, the heating circuits are in the back of the dryer. If the lint screen is in the door, the heating circuits are located under the dryer drum. All Kenmore dryers are not constructed the the same. Regardles of location, the Heating Element is located inside the heater box. The Thermal Cut-Out (TCO) will be located on the outside of the heater box on the end opposite the heating element terminals. The Hi-Limit Thermostat will be located adjacent to the heating element terminals. If either the TCO or Hi-Limit Thermostat are determined to be bad, replace both components at the same time. That is why these components are commonly sold as a set. Failure to do so may result in premature failure of any parts you replace. All these parts can be found at appliancepartspros.com, searspartsdirect.com, pcappliancerepair.com, or repairclinic.com.
If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.
