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.
Good luck,
Hope this helps

Light stays on even with door shut, kenmore he2 dryer


The door switch would be the first suspect... make sure the wires are in the proper sequence... does the light go off when you open the door? the tech sheet should tell you what color wires go to which terminals

What's wrong with my dryer & how do I fix it? Kenmore 70 series dryer won't shut off!! It stops when the door is open but won't shut off on it's own.


If the timer just keeps going past the next off and never shuts off then it could be one of two things. First, is the heating still on when door is opened? If it is then the electric heating element is broken in half and one half is getting neutral by laying against the metal heater case which will cause this problem. (assuming a electric dryer). If not then the timer is the culprit and check fleabay for NOS.

Kenmore electric dryer 8662100 drum turns, no heat


you have probably lost one leg of your power supply feed 120volts+120volts=240volts,your motor will operate on 120volts, but the element won't,also if you have 240volts the neutral wire to the element can burn off w/heat and age

DRYER DOOR WILL NOT STAY CLOSED WHEN IN USE


Most likely the receptacle that the door latch goes into is broken. Go to local appliance parts dealer with model number and buy the $5 part, or order through Sears Parts Direct online.

Must hold start button to run. no heat


disconnect power and remove lid. Test the door switch w a volt meter do so opening and closing the door not pushing switch if circuit stays open try pushing switch with finger. If pushing closes circuit then adjust switch.If circuit stays open replace switch. If switch operates with no problems then it is the motor. Check all connections and vacuum lint from motor

Kenmore dryer heating coils stay on when dryer is off


That's no good....hopefully your house is still standing. Your coil is shorted to ground, so there is constantly 120v being applied to the heating element. It won't get as hot as when running, but because there is no airflow it poses a serious fire hazard.
