Question about Kenmore 63942 Dryer
Okay, the little white thingy you mention is the thermal fuse. If it were to blow, the dryer would not run at all. They usually blow like a fuse and require replacement, however, I have experienced on one occasion where the dryer would shut down in the manner you mention, and it was caused by a thermal fuse that was tripping off. I couldn't explain it, but I replaced it and the dryer worked fine after that. That could very well be a possiblity. Normally, problems like this are caused by the operating thermostat going bad. That the other thingy thats mounted next to the thermal fuse. The link I sent you should have information on how to check them. The heating element should not be considered a problem at this point. It would not cause the dryer to shut down if it were to fail. Your symptom would be a dryer that runs, but does not heat. Let em know if you have further questions.
