Question about Kenmore Dryers
The issue you are facing is due to the thermal fuse. If the thermal fuse is the problem, the dryer wouldn’t run.
First of all verify the voltage for the dryer by using multi-meter to measure the voltage at the dryer outlet to make sure you have 240v because the dryer motor only needs 120v supplied by one of the lines to run. But the heating elements, on the other hand, need 240v supplied by both lines to get hot.
If the voltage is ok, then the most likely bad parts are given below. As always, you should use your meter and the tech sheet supplied with your dryer (hidden inside the control panel) to verify:
1. Even Heat Board
2. Heater Relay
You need to check and replaced the bad parts to resolve the issue you are facing with.

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.
