Question about Kenmore Dryers
Start by checking the thermal cutoff fuse part #3398671 substitution 279769 for the heater element. Most of the time those will go out before the element does. If these are blowing frequently, then you should check your dryer outlet hose for lint and other blockage. This will also cause your dryer to not dry properly.
While out on a service call, I found a packrat's nest inside the dryer vent hose.
One way of checking if its the fuse, is to take a jumper and bypass the fuse, and run juice directly to the heating element. If it works without the fuse, then it's ok. If not then the heater element is bad.
I hope this helps
