Question about Kenmore 63942 Dryer
Unit turn on fine but does not heat. Solution?
The following link explains how to troubleshoot as dryer no heat problem:
First, double check your voltage at the wall receptacle. If incorrect, this will also cause the symptoms you describe. The reason: The drive motor only requires 110-120VAC to run, while the heating circuits require the full 220 service. If you are missing one leg of your 220 service, the heating circuits will not operate, but the drive motor will still run.
Next, pay particular attention to the section that discusses proper dryer ventilation. Most dryer heat related problems are attributed to poorly/imporperly installed dryer exhaust vent ducting, or a dryer that is clogged with lint preventing proper air flow. If left in a clogged condition, a dryer will actually overheat to the point of failure and you will experience repeated failures of any components you replace.
Read through the link provided and let me know if you have any questions. I hope this helps you.

You should have your owner's manual on hand to locate specific parts
and understand how to disassemble the dryer. Also make sure that the
power is disconnected from the appliance before making any repairs.
1)Check the fuses near the heating element. Inspect them for breaks inside the fuse. Replace them if necessary.
2)Test the temperature switch with a volt-ohm meter. Set the meter to RX1 and zero it out. Touch the meter probes to each terminal on the switch. The reading should be zero. Next turn the switch on and test it again. Now the reading should show infinity. If the switch fails either test replace it with a new one.
3)Check the heating coil to see if it is bad. Use the volt-ohm meter and touch the probes to each of the heating coil terminals. If it reads zero, the heating coil needs to be replaced.
