KENMORE DRYER IS NOT DRYING CLOTHES. IF YOU TURN IT ON, IT RUNS UNTIL YOU TURN IT OFF. IS IT THE HEATING ELEMENT?

Run the dryer for a minute, then open the door and check for heat. If there is heat, the element is ok. If so, you've got a venting issue. If there is a restriction in the vent you won't be able to get as much air out, therefore you won't be able to get as much of the moisture trapped in the air out. The auto dry settings on some dryers require the operating thermostat to open to advance the timer. If there is a venting issue it may cause the dryer to cycle with the hi-limit thermostat instead. Of course, it should not affect the timed dry cycle. so if it won't advance there either you may have another issue. Try taking the vent off the back of the dryer and allow it to vent into the room. This may take care of both of your issues if the restriction is in the home venting, then you would need to sweep the home vent. It's also possible that the restriction is in the dryer blower housing. Without the vent hooked up, turn the dryer on and feel where the vent leaves the dryer. You should have a fairly strong movement of air, if not you'll need to disassemble the dryer and remove the restriction.
