I have a Kenmore dryer that will sometimes still heat for a few minutes, but then the heats turns off but the dryer still runs.  Any ideas?

It's the Kenmore Elite electric dryer, model # 110.63952101.  We bought it in 2003 and already had to replace the even heat control board.  Most of the time, there is no heat at all.  Sometimes (if the unit has been unplugged for a while), the heat will return for a few minutes and then disappear.  Other than that, it runs just fine.  I had a repairman out who couldn't find anything wrong.  He suggested we replace the even heat control board again.  We did, but this didn't make a difference.  Any ideas?

Thanks.

Sounds like you may have a bad circuit breaker or maybe a loose connection @ the main power connection @ the dryer.
yo, just do what ya gotta do!

Has anyone pulled the heating element out of the protective can and checked it for breaks anywhere in the curcuit.

You may have a broken heating element that periodically connects to ground causing it to heat sometimes when things are vibrating when running.

If you don't see anything that is obviously broken then your are going to have to learn to use an electrical test meter to find out where you are losing power to the element.
