Question about Kenmore Elite HE4 Electric Dryer
BE SURE TO UNPLUG YOU MACHINE FROM THE WALL BEFORE YOU START ANY WORK.
Your problem could be a Thermostats/Thermistors malfunction.
But this overheat condition also could be caused by a buildup of lint in the duct work, or a faulty blower motor/fan blade.
This will cause an overheat condition that you describe.
You will have to locate the air tube that is going to the dryer drum.
Same general area the heater is located is also where you will find most of the thermostats/Thermistors.
They normally are round/oval shaped and have two wires connected to them. Take off the wires and with an Ohm meter set to "continuity" check your thermostat/thermistor.
If you have continuity across the terminal it is not faulty.
Be sure to check all of the thermostats/Thermistors.
If this is not your problem then it will be the Control board if you have one on your machine.
Look for the fan blade to be in the air tube going to the dryer drum.
