why would would my dryer keep popping the breaker 11060842990 Kenmore Electric dryer


Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears
I am sorry and do understand your frustration when there is problems with the dryer. 
Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Kenmore Dryer model number 11060842990.
First thing for safety and concerns to keep dryer running well is to check the lint screen and vent of air flow going out of the house.   If clogged up it could cause heating problems on any dryer.
To prevent a Blocked Vent Hood, once a year: 
1.  Clean any lint blockage from the exhaust vent hood.
2.  Make sure the vent hood flappers move freely.
3.  Check for screen/grate openings that allow bird or rodent nests.
4.  Replace exhaust vent hood if damaged.
5.  Check for good air flow while running the dryer.
Note: Poor airflow or decreased airflow indicates further vent system cleaning is needed.

Your dryer is popping the breaker.   First make sure the fuses connected with the dryer is good.

After you make sure the lint is cleared and cleaned, your fuse is good.   Check the items below with an ohm/volt meter if you are sure that you know how to do properly.  The thermostats could be stuck open and sending too much power through the dryer.

When it comes to Electric dryers here are all the options to check on when not heating.
All can be checked with an Ohm meter for its continuity open or closed.
You can see all these on the link below when clicked on.
Thermal cut off switch which is both key 1 and key 34 together
ON the back of the blower is thermal fuse key number 59
Also on the back of the blower internal thermostat key number 42
Make sure you always keep  your lint screen areas clean.

Thank you for your understanding in this matter and I hope we can help you with your future questions and repairs.  Thank you for choosing Sears and using our
