Question about Kenmore Dryers
Disconnect power to the dryer then bypass the cycling thermostat and the high-limit thermostat by taping the wires together or jumping a wire between them. Pug the dryer in, start it and she what happens next. Either or both of the thermostats are malfunctioning if the burner works fine with the two bypassed. If that is the case, unbypass one of the thermostats to see if the flame goes out. The unbypassed one is the culprit if the flame goes out; otherwise it is the other one that is malfunctioning. Redo the test, if the flame goes out, with the second one unbypassed and first one bypassed.
