My Kenmore dryer will not stop running. The heater is working fine but when the clothes are dry it does not stop. The clothes just keep getting hotter unless I stop the dryer by opening the door or manually turning the timer to off.

I have replace the timer with a new one I bought on the internet and I also replaced the push to start button thinking that was bad or stuck. Still have the same problem. The timer knob doesn't turn while it is drying it just stays where I set it.

Does anybody have a idea what could be wrong?

Set the dryer on timed dry, no heat or air fluff for about 10 minutes and see if it will turn off by itself.
