My dryer element was not heating and there did not appear to be any damage to the element itself. There were several thermal fuses attached to the heating element enclosure. Test them with a voltmeter and see if there is conductivity. If there isn't, then the fuse is faulty/broken. Replaced my broken fuse with 3390915 and the element heats once again. The original part was not the 3390915, but Kenmore recommends replacing the stock thermal fuses with 3390915. Thank you!
