Question about Kenmore 60172 Electric Commercial Dryer
The cause of such problem is usually a blown thermal fuse located on the blower housing. It is wired in series with the motor and will result in the dryer not running if it is blown. Disconnect power then remove the rear panel to access and test the continuity of the thermal fuse.
You can bypass the thermal fuse for troubleshooting purposes if you don't have a tool for continuity testing. Tape the thermal fuse wires together or jump a wire between them then insulate them properly. Plug the dryer in then start it. The thermal fuse is indeed blown and needs to be replaced along with the cycling thermostat if the dryer runs with the thermal fuse bypassed. Do not use the dryer with the thermal fuse or any other part bypassed due to fire hazards.
