Hello, My folks have a Kenmoore Elite Even Heat Total Care

This answer was rated:

Hello, My folks have a Kenmoore Elite Even Heat Total Care with Moisture Sensor dryer. I'm pretty sure its electric. MDL#110639420. My mother has had problems with this dryer shuting down in mid-cycle and not being able to restart. This has been going on for some time now. I went over there and saw for myself the situation. The dry did stop mid-cycle and I was not able to resart using the start button. I was able to restart after turning the timing/heat selector knob a couple revololutions and repressing the start button. The dryer continued on and finished drying the clothes. I'm thinking it is the timing/heat selector mechanisim that might be the culpret. Any thoughts?

The model you gave does not show to be valid, I think you got a couple of numbers wrong in it.. I know that the beginning is correct with the 110 but the rest please reverify?
