A:

According to your model number, that is an older dryer. I found what I believe to be the wiring diagram for that dryer in the image below. That dryer heating element circuit is traced in red. You have one leg of 120 volt potential going through a timer and an operating thermostat that cycles to regulate the heat. The 2nd leg of 120 volts of opposite potential goes through the motor centrifugal switch and the high limit thermostat. Your details indicate that you may have bypassed that high limit thermostat. That could be why the dryer heating element is heating constantly now. I recommend that you restore the wiring to the original configuration and replace the cycling thermostat (part 694674). That component is on the blower housing. It will cycle the element on and off to maintain a temperature of about 140 to 150 degrees in the dryer. Be sure that you unplug the dryer before accessing internal components. Here is a link for that operating thermostat: Operating Thermostat for Kenmore Dryer 110.6958701 . If you need more help, reply with additional details.
