Question about Kenmore Elite HE3 Steam 8674 Dryer
I took my dryer apart to clean all the lint out of the vent fan. Now, it powers on, but will not tumble or start drying.
Work on mainly Whirlpool Products did you put the belt on correctly there is probably a belt switch which is closed with a properly installed belt it is under the spring loaded idler pulley or maybe you for got to hook up the door switch hope this helps.

This may not be the solution to your exact problem but for those looking for why there timer will not advance and why it keeps running even when the items are dry: The usual problem is not the timer but the mosture sensor (if your dryer has one).
1: Check the mosture sensor light/indicator. If is still shows some mosture or flashes even when the items are dry, you have a mosture sensor problem, probably not a timer issue - luck you.
2: Check if the timer will advance and the dryer will turn off when you have it in the TIMED mode (i.e. 10mins - NOT the more/less dry modes.) If so, then it is indeed a sensor problem.
2: Check that the wires to the mosture sensor have not fallen off (as in my case - a simple repair). The senor is usually two metal bars somewhere near the front part of the inside of your dryer. You may have to take off the door and the front pannel (be sure to unplug the dryer first) to get at the two wires to clip on to the sensor. Clean any lint and make sure they are conneted. If well connected then replace the sensor ($15-$20 and very easy to do).

Insert a putty knife into the seam where it meets the front panel about 2 inches in from each side. There is a small retainer clip that you will need top depress in order for the panel to release. If you go to searspartsdirect.com and enter your model number, you can find a helpful illustration under the "Cabinet" heading. The clips I mention are listed as item 46 just ot give you a perspective. I would also strongly recommend that you UNPLUG the dryer before cleaning the interior cabinet. There are live voltages present even with the dryer turned off. Particulary around the heating circuits. I hope you find this information helpful.

It may not be your heating element. Your dryer lint vent pipe out the back of the machine or maybe out the
side may be plugged. You have to pull the machine out and clear
that pipe or rebuild it out to a soffit vent or static vent if it is in
the attic, or out through your crawl space. This will make a huge
difference. If that hot air and moisture doesn't get out of the
machine it just goes back into your clothes.
