Hi. We suddenly have no heat pumping through our Series 80, 7 year old Kenmore dryer. I believe we've had the element replaced twice. Is it common for these to fizzle out a few times on a dryer of this age that gets used just about every day? Or is it telling me it's time for a new one? Was hoping you can diagnose the issue and if it is not too difficult for a non-handy person to fix it. Dryer turns on no problem. Went outside and felt cool air blowing. Thanks.

Ah. That certainly explains why I couldn't find it. What would you recommend based on the symptoms? Dryer turns on fine. Blows out room temperature air. Thanks.
