Question about Kenmore Dryers
Your first problem sounds like you have a faulty timer switch. If that is the problem then you will have to replace the timer switch, because normally timer switches are not repairable.
Sounds like your 2nd problem is with the heating coil.
If you plan to try to repair the problem yourself, then the first thing you want to do is unplug the dryer from the electric.
Remove the back of the machine and try to locate the air tube going from the blower to the drum. Normally inside the air tube you will find the heating coil and the thermostats/thermistor.
Once you have located the heating coil, remove the two wires from it and check the coil with a continuity meter across the two terminals of the coil.
You should read continuity across the terminals, if not you will need to replace the coil as it is faulty.
Hope this helps
