My Kenmore dryer won't heat up.  I have cleaned out the vent with my shop vac.  The heating coils are getting red hot, but nothing seems to be happening after that.  I have noticed that the coils will turn on and then turn off.  They don't seem to remain illuminated.  Any help would be appreciated.

Great, a DOTT dryer with the even heat control board. , could be a lot of things, how long is the element staying on before it shuts off. I assume the motor is running and there is good air flow from the dryer.

First try running the dryer with the vent off completly ...... Just do a load of clothes with no vent on and all and post your findings...  Those dryers are very very touchy when it comes to vents     also drop the blower housing ( where the lint screen goes in  )   when ya drop the front panel this part is normally brown in color and held in by 2 1/4" screws. Vaccuum that out and make sure that the seal for that is also intact and then run that load of laundry.... Do the cycle on time dry NOT auto... and post what ya get .... Those dryer should also not be level   The should be leveled more toward the front so that the clothes rub the front sensor in the dryer when using the auto cycles.
