Hi, I have a Kenmore Elite electric dryer model#

If your fuse is blown could be that your operating thermastat is not shuting off as soon as it should. Try replacing the fuse and the operating thermastat. The fuse would probaly blow before the hi limit.

I have a Kenmore gas dryer Model # 110.76962501 will not heat. Would glow when turned on but then would kick off, no heat. Have checked all thermastats and sensors, everything checked out ok. So bought 2...

if the ignitor was glowing you could have bad gas coils or a bad gas valve.check the coils with a meter to make sure they are good,also when you read out all the other parts did you remove at least one of the wires from the part,if not you'll get false readings.if the coils are good make sure the wires are pushed on tightly and check the metal connectors inside the plastic wire connector that slides onto the coils,i've found some that were messed up and not making a connection with the coil.also on one of the coils there's a metal sleeve, i think it's the coil with three prongs on it,check the old coil to see if it's stuck inside the old coil,if it is stick a screw driver in it,push it out and slide it back on the post and slide the coil back on the post,if everything checks ok you could have a bad gas valve,try wacking it with something to see if it will let the gas through.let me know what you find with the meter and how you make out,

Dryer has no heat, not heating elament

Test the outlet for 240V. If that's ok, you've already replaced the element so remove the wires from the thermostats and test them for continuity (you might want to test the element for continuity just in case). If that's ok, there might be a problem with the timer. Depending on the model you may be able to open it to verify.
If you're still having problems, post your model number and I'll try to assist you further.
Good luck!

I am sorry to hear this, my name is Marc White, i am self employed and it seems as though you have a bad timer, bad timer will cause the timer not to go to the off position and blow your fuse......change your timer..
