Question about Kenmore Dryers
It would be a part called the motor control relay, it is located behind the top console panel. It is part number 3405281. Once you open the top console there will be two of these relays, one is for the heat and one for the motor the one you need to replace is the one that has 2 blue wires and 2 pink with black stripped wires.
It should cost about $30.00 or so for the part

You will need to unplug the dryer and turn off the gas **** to the dryer.
Remove the front panel to access the dryer motor.
Clean all lint from the motor shaft especially on the belt pulley end.
Manually activate the centrifugal switch on the motor shaft on the pulley end. It is most likely sticking from dust and lint and will not engage.
The start switch part # 3977456 is approximately $10.
It may also need replacing.

Thanksfor using FixYa. No Heatissue in dryer is usually caused due to three things mainly:Thermal Fuse, Wiring Harness and/or Heating Element. Start with checking theThermal Fuse which is mounted inside the back cover panel to the exhaust ductand is mounted in white plastic housing. If that’s fine then the HeatingElement should be checked. Please do accept the solution if theissue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
