Question about Kenmore Dryers
Kenmore electric dryer heat stays on when door is opened.
Sounds like your thermistor/thermostats could be your problem.
They control the heat coming from the heating coil.
Unplug the dryer.
If you remove the back of the dryer, look for the air tube coming from the blower to the drum, normally inside the air tube you will find the heating coil and the thermistor/thermostats. Replace as needed.
Hope this helps
