Question about Kenmore 64952 Electric Dryer
I put a load of towels in dryer and put it on, in the middle of cycle it shut off. It did not trip the breaker. I tried to look at the motor, but I can't figure out how to take the back panel off???? I checked to see if there was fire to the switch and there was. You can hear it trying to come on when I press the start button, but all I hear is a clicking sound.

The circuit breaker may be tripping because of a fault with the dryer or it may be a fault with the circuit breaker being weak.
From the description you give the circuit breakers trip frequently.
I'd suggest you first try selecting the no heat air fluff cycle and run it to see if the breaker trips. If the circuit breaker doesn't trip in air fluff then there is likely a short in the heating element.
With a clamp-on amp meter you can read the amp draw of the dryer when it is heating. With the motor and element both working you would see approximately 25-26 amperes being drawn. The breaker is rated at 30 amps. If the breaker trips and only 26 amps are being drawn then the breaker is the problem.
Try the air fluff cycle first and see if the breaker will trip. Then with additional details I may be able to help you further.
