Question about Kenmore Dryers
You're doing the right thing except for changing out the element without reading it out first.when you check the parts make sure the dryer is unpluged and that you pull at least one of the wires off the part you're checking. check the thermostats on the heater box part
279769 which is part 47,also remove the duct that the lint filter slides into and clean it,if you have a long vent line remove it from the back of the dryer and blow it out with a leaf blower and if you have a shop vac put it on blow and blow off the motor and blow all the lint from the back inside of dryer so it blows to the front and vac it up so you don't have to pull the drum if you don't want to.the thermal cutoff pops when it gets to hot in the dryer most likely from a back up in the vent line or the duct,also go outside and make sure the vent is clear,you should be fine
