Could be thermal limiter fuse, there are usually two in the back of the unit. It can be blown and the drum will turn but the unit won't heat.

Kenmore 700 series dryer problems


This could be a few things. The first thing to check is your dryers vent, make sure its not clogged and check were it exits the house because sometimes nest are made in them. A clogged vent will prevent proper drying because the moisture can not escape and/or the heating element turns off due to overheating.
If the vent is clear, with dryer empty open the door and hold down the door switch (button that tells dryer door is closed) and turn on dryer, as its running watch the back area of drum were the vent with little holes is, within a few seconds you should start to see an orange glow in that area. If the orange glow starts then disappears within a few seconds it means your vent is clogged, if there is no orange glow at all then you have either a bad heating coil or bad high limit switches. I believe youtube has great how to videos on how to replace them, its not that hard if you have basic repair skills. Hope this helps you and your able to get it drying agian

Hi,

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have not taken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then you need to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should take place. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causes for your dryer to fail.
