You could have a problem with one of the components that is causing an error code to be recorded in the memory of the electronic control board. The image below shows how to read the error codes on this type of dryer. I recommend that you check the error code history first. 

 

You can also use the diagnostic test shown in the image below to check the moisture sensor and the temperature sensor in the dryer. You could have a problem with one of those components.  

 

If you find the cause of your problem and need parts, you can order them from this page: Kenmore Dryer Model 417.88076700 Repair Parts. Be sure that you unplug the dryer before accessing internal components and replacing parts.

 

If you need more help, reply with additional details about the results of your testing.

 

If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician examine and repair the dryer, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services Dryer Repair.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Based on your symptom and details it could be one of many possible failures but I suspect a faulty thermal limiter. When the thermal limiter fails, the dryer will not run and heat.

The thermal limiter is located on the inside of the back panel near the area where the power cord is attached. The thermal limiter will have a red wire and an orange wire connected to it.

The thermal limiter can be disconnected and tested for continuity with an Ohm meter. If it does not measure continuity across the two terminals on the thermal limiter, the thermal limiter will need to be replaced.

To access the thermal limiter; disconnect the power cord from the power source and then remove the screws along the back of the top. Slide the top backwards and lift it off. You will see the thermal limiter mounted near the terminal block where the power cord attaches and it will have a red wire and an orange wire connected to it.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

@ Joey S- Thank you very much for the advise! i will try that out tomorrow. I hope that is the problem and nothing else. I was also curious if the electric board itself might be acting up too, the machine got couple good hit from moving and what nots. and it has given us trouble before where you would load it up pick your setting and than when you hit start it automatically goes to "cooling down" mode and skipping the "dry mode". Im not sure if you every heard that before or not. But i'll check it out tomorrow too. Thanks everyone for all your help!

Oleg040: It could have a control board issue. Check the thermal limiter and let me know it went.

Joey S - have checked the thermal limiter as you described, and the multimeter and it read 001 and than dropped to 000. So looks like thats the issue (i hope) I also looked at the board and it looked fine, no cracks, and fuses were fine. For the thermal limited can i pick that up anywhere or is it a special item. thank you for your help.

Oleg040: Based on your reply, the thermal limiter is good. If you touch the two Ohm meter leads together, it should registor 000. If it measured this when you disconnected the thermal limiter and measured across the two male terminals, the thermal limiter is Okay. I would have to suspect a faulty electronic control board. The motor relay which is part of the control board must close and connect the tan and gray wire in order to supply the voltage to the motor. See the wiring diagram a I added below.

I have did as you said, im attaching a link to the picture to make sure i was testing the right thing. The connections and the little realy right above read 000. so im assuming that the relay is working condition. Whats funny with this whole thing, is that i had 2 load of laundry in, and than go for second and it wouldnt spin the drum. is this a rare or a common acurance?

A:

Oleg040: In order to know if the relay is closing or not, you will have measure voltage on the wire exiting the control board. The image you send is of the back side of the control board. This is not where you need to be. There is gray wire that must have 120 volts once start is pushed. You have to place on voltage meter on the gray wire and the other voltage meter lead on the white wire. I hope you did check the thermal limiter and not something else. There thermal limiter is located in the upper inside corner near where the terminal block is located. The terminal block is where the power cord attaches. NOTE: I do not recommend measuring voltage unless you have experience and feel safe and confident in doing so; otherwise I strongly suggest calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your dryer.

After reconecting everything back and trying to turn the dryer on you can hear the relay switch on and off, so it doesnt sound that its the realay switch. Could it be the motor itself?

A:

oleg040: Just because you hear the motor relay clicking does not mean it closing the two contacts in order to complete the voltage supply to the motor. The voltage supply coming out of the control to the motor will need to be measured to in order know or not if the motor relay is closing and completing the voltage supply to the motor. The voltage supply will need to be measured across the gray wire at J4-1 and the white wire at J2-2. Review the wiring diagram I provided in a previous post.
