Question about Kenmore Dryers
I have the same problem as of yesterday.
Unplug Dryer and remove back panel from unit. Use shop vac to remove any and all dryer lint. Two Thermostats look to be central right and easily accessible. Sets of wires go to these two items along a long metal downward shaft (housing the heating elements.)
Parts available from Sears parts online for around $20.00 each.
I am not a professional by any means, but I was a mechanical engineer on a nuclear submarine's reactor plant and I did work for 6 months installing and conducting light repairs on Maytag appliances.
I have seen several websites with info that supports the problem being the thermostats. My guess is that I would treat this like replacing headlights for your car. Never replace just one, because the older one will not be as bright and will most likely fail in the near future. For the low cost and high effort to go back and replace a second thermostat...you might as well replace both at the same time.
Make sure all dryer lint is cleaned out of ducting.
