Kenmore dryer won't heat after changing thermostat. all vents are clear.


If you replaced the heating element, and the vent is absolutely clear it should not overheat and turn off. Is your timer motor shutting down the power prematurely? Sure the thermostat is functioning properly?

Dryer stops tumbling, but heating element stays on


Usually when an electric dryer overheats it's because of a defective cycling thermostat or a clogged vent system. Clean any lint from the internal and external ductwork, and/or replace the cycling thermostat

Drier was working O.k . Timmer Stop working And so did the Heating. Does the Timmer control Temperature aswell.?


Yes, if the timer mech is damaged and, it will not rotate, this is cause the heating cycle to become inoperable. the time is responsible for initiating the heating command and the thermostat helps with the temp regulations. replacing the timer will restore the normal functions of your dryer.

Dryer won't dry clothes completely. stops heating.


Clean vent 1st. Electric? Gas? More information is needed for sure. Does it come on and light up (assuming gas) then never light up again? or....are you running it thru like 3 cycles to get them dry? You say it stops heating......how long until it starts again....i assume that if you turned it on the next day that it would heat up right? (at leat initially) Can you see the heating element(or ignitor and flame)?
