Sounds like you may have two problems but the main problem might be that the element may be broken and one side is grounded, The switch on the motor may also be stuck in the on position as well.

If this is a new element, this is normal until it has been used a few cycles. Use it and watch it carefully for a while. If it continues have a competent person to take the rear panel off and check for burnt wires or lint inside the unit.

Kenmore 90 series electric dryer blowing cold air only


1st check the breakers
2nd check wiring in back to see connections are secure.
3rd check element. It would be burned in two.
4th check thermal overload switch which is located underneath top of dryer. Easy to remove top. Probably 4-6 screws.

Electric dryer


Most dryers have two fuses in them, one inline with the heater element and another thermal fuse in the main circuit. The one inline with the heater element can blow and the dryer will still run, but will not heat. If the dryer gets too hot it may blow the thermal fuse and kill power to the entire system.

Depending on your level of handiness, you may take the cover off (make sure the unit is unplugged from power) and look for a blown fuse. Most dryers have a schematic for repair somewhere on the unit, usually in the top control area.
