MyKenmore Elite electric dryer (model #110.60992990)isoverheating.There is nolint buildup and it's vented properly. We replaced the thermal fuse (twice), the thermostat, thermostat cut-off,thermistor, and it's still overheating. Do you have any suggestions as to what other parts we should check or replace?

Hi,

Sounds like you did almost everything. Try as a last resort to run the dryer for a load without any vent hook-up at all. Pull the dryer away from the wall as well while testing that, make sure the flow of air out the back exhaust pipe is blowing very fast.

Also check for a grounded heating element, that would cause the heater to stay on the whole time its in the cycle. Also check that something metal is not touching the element and the heater box, that would cause a heater always on problem as well.
