I have a Kenmore 80series dryer that heats up so hot you can barely touch the clothes.Funny thing though is it's only when the clothes are pretty much all dry.It does it on the cool air setting also.It has a auto moister sensor on it and leaning in that direction but would appreciate any input.

Dryer quit heating and the dial wasn't moving-so I replaced the heating element, as advised on here. It heats well for about 10 minutes , then stops heating . I have found that unplugging and plugging it back in ,that the heating element works again then stops after 10 minutes .

Just the heating element stops working or does the motor stop running, too?

If just the element, then it sounds like the element is cycling on and off on the high limit thermostat because the cycling thermostat is stuck closed. So the heating element stays on until the high limit is tripped and then it takes a while for it to cool down. I think the unplugging and plugging it back in back be coincidental.

.... It heats well for about 10 minutes , then stops heating .
... that may be normal, depending on Vent temperature
If you could check the temperature at the Dryer Vent:
and check your Venting System

Dryer Vent

Vent should be rigid metal.
Short lengths of flexible metal may be OK, if not crimped when moving the Dryer into place.
NO plastic
NO PVC
NO screws
Foil Duct Tape is OK.
With an empty load, Timed Dry, High Heat, the vent temperature should cycle somewhere between 135F and 160F
Check / clean the Dryer Vent
Disconnect the Dryer Vent and check for good air-flow there and where it exits the house.
Check the Vent air temperature at the back of the Dryer.

Just for the record, you were advised to TEST the element, long dry times are 96.8 percent venting issues.
