Hello my name is***** will be helping you today. First unplug the dryer and make sure you are getting 220 volts out of the dryer. Flip the breaker off and on if you have to, having a meter capable of testing voltage and continuity is required here. Do you have a meter?
Sure thing. FIrstly, check that you have 220 volts at the outlet and 220 volts at your terminal block. The block is where the power cord connects to the dryer. Be careful when taking voltage reading, 220 volts is extremely dangerous. If all that is good, unplug the dryer and take off the bottom kick plate. You will be looking for the thermal fuse, t-stat and heating element. I will post a link to all parts that show part number and what they look like.
This is the heating element, http://www.repairclinic.com/vwo8/PartDetail/b6p8/Kenmore-Dryer-Heating-Element-Assembly/3387747/525502?modelNumber=110.85091401&fromRepairHelp=Truethis is the fuse http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/b6p8/Kenmore-Dryer-Thermal-Fuse/3392519/2986?modelNumber=110.85091401&ss=a8b6c44d702611&mr=1
This is the other fuse (more than likley the culprit) http://www.searspartsdirect.com/kenmore-dryer-parts/8318314/0026/110/model-11085091401/0582/0151200.html
That last link comes with the t-stat and fuse, if one is bad you change both of them.You could also have a motor or timer issue. Also if the dryer was taking too long to dry before it broke, you should check the vent through the roof of through the side of the house.
