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!

Removed front lower panel as shown in how to do video, removed two screws from heating element bracket and pulled the whole tube that holds heating element and thermo cut off and thermostat. Used OHM meter to check out heating element, thermal cut out and thermostat. Thermal cut out was the only thing bad but replaced both thermostats as recommended. The most time was taken cleaning out cabinet as it had eleven years of lint and very lucky it never caught on fire over the years. Put all back together and dryer now dries clothes in half the time as before.

My husband changed the part but part select was very helpful. With their free repair help site it made repairing a breeze! We will use parts select again and again. I did order all the parts we might have needed and only needed one. Now I will return the others.

I took off the back panel, removed the 2 screws each for the thermostat and cutoff sensor, removed the 2 wires that went to each, screwed in the new parts, reattached the wires, and bingo, the dryer produced heat again. This was my third and final shot at trying to fix this problem as I had already replaced the thermal fuse (was not the issue), and replaced the actual heating coil (apparently wasn't the problem either). However, the dryer is now working better than ever with the new heating coil, drying in about half the time it took before, so I'm glad that was done.
