Hello Friend, Your problem is very simple to fix. You need a thermal fuse, very simple and affordable to replace. To replace the thermal fuse just remove back cover of dryer and look down where the air blows out. Now, just to the left where all the wires are you will see a white plastic part with two wires plugged into it. This part is called a thermal fuse. Just remove these wires and replace the thermal fuse. Your dryer will run like new. Happy to help, Tim.

Why doesn't my Kenmore 110 98575120 dryer heat up?

Most likely the thermal fuse is bad. Here' the part as well as a video of how to check it.

You'll need to remove the back panel of the dryer to get to it. It'll be located on the outlet duct neat where the hose hooks up. Don't forget to clean out the vent all the way to the outside. Poor airflow is why they fail. If your vent is clear than replace the t-stat on the heat element as well as the fuse.
Hope this helps. Good luck,

My kemore (Model Number 96585210) runs for about 5 min then shuts off and will not start again for about 30 min.

hope this helps, usually when it shuts down like that it is because it is overheating. make sure that the venting system is totally clear of and build-up. hope it is as easy as this. it usually is. if you had a big problem with your dryer it would most likely not work at all. good luck ! post your results please.
