Check to make sure you are getting full 220 Volt power to the dryer, if you are then:
Check your Wiring
Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. If this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the wire is attached.
Check the Door Switch
If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. Check for continuity you should have none with door open, and should have a reading when closed. If not replace the door switch.
Check to make sure you heating problem is not a lint build up in the discharge hose or the dryer,as this condition can cause heater/thermistor problems such as overheating of the heating coil leading to failure of the coil and burnout of the thermostat/thermistor due to overheat.
Remove the back/or front just under the door of the machine and try to locate the air duct going from the blower to the drum. Normally inside/outside the air duct you will find the heating coil and the thermostats/thermistors. Once you have located the heating coil, remove the two wires from it and check the coil with an ohm meter across the two terminals of the coil.
You should read continuity across the terminals, if not you will need to replace the coil as it is faulty.
If the heating coil is ok, then:
You can check the thermostat/thermistor one at a time by removing the two wires and taping them together with electrical tape or with an ohm meter to test the thermostat/thermistor. (Should have/show continuity)
If the coil heats up then replace the thermostat/thermistor.
(Thermal fuse.If it overheats the dryer will not operate. It's located on the blower housing. It cannot be reset. A vent clogged with lint can cause it to overheat. You can test it with an Ohm meter or continuity checker, if no continuity, replace it)
This could cause a FIRE, as you have removed the safety of overheat from the machine.
Right after replacing a dryer element, always run the dryer on 'air fluff' / 'no heat', and go outside to verify there's plenty of air coming out your vent system.
If the vent's clogged, that new element can burn out very quickly.

I have a Kenmore 90series washing machine model 110.20902990. I removed the upper agitator as well as the bolts, on every video I've seen I should be able to lift the bottom agitator but I can not.

this most likely has a spline inside it , after years of washing id say rust is on shaft making for some tightness in side it , id try to use a heat (air) gun to soften up plastic to try and move it , don't forget to wear thick gloves as it will be hot on the hands

I have a Kenmore automatic heay duty top load washer that when is in the wash cycle I believe what is the agitator only sort of jerks back and forth slowly instead of turning. It is a 90series and the...

see if you can lift agitator off and see if something is jammed under it a sock or something..most unscrew at top and just lift off if this is not your problem it may be the transmission. how old is the washer if old probably cheaper to replace then to have transmission repaired(if it is transmission)

Will not switch from rinse to spin mode

Unplug the washer for 10 min to reboot the circiut board. Then select a single cycle. Selecting too many cycles in a short period of time can overwelm the little brain in the board.
