Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
Try unplugging it or turning off the power at the breaker panel. This should reset the controls.
Weather this works or not, make sure that the whole dryer vent is clear. often we find a clog in the flexible line, or where the duct exits the house. also there are situations where the clogged duct caused a lint plug inside the dryer. Assuming you can reset the controls, you can run the dryer for a minute with the hose unhooked to see if you are venting the right amount of air.
It is possible the heating element has gone out or one of the thermal disk has blown its fuse. If you turn the dryer on holding the button that is depressed when the door is closed so that the dryer will run you should be able to see if the heating element is getting hot because it should show as a red glow. If this is not happening then most more than likely the heating element has gone out. Most of the time they are fairly easy to replace.
a simple thing is that When the lights are flashing, it is an error code, which indicates a problem with the door switch. Could be a loose connection there.
