Default Installed new Element, worked for a few days now nothing
Model Number: 11066902691   Brand: Kenmore   Age: 5 - 10 years

Dryer was not drying..checked the element and it was bad (broken coil). Replaced the element and removed all the lint. The dryer ran fine for the first few loads, next day would cut off after 15 minutes or so then restart after a little while, next day worked fine for a few loads. Opened door to turn off last night because I was leaving the house.. now nothing..will not come on. I have flipped the breaker, tried different settings. Seems too coincidental for the no start to not to be tied to new heating element install. Note that I was unsure of wiring to element(forgot to take pic and tag fell off - but looked online and indication was it did not matter for this model. Any ideas.

When you say it cut off after 15 minutes, did just the heat cut off or motor and heat? You say it restart after a little while. It started by itself? Or you had to wait and pushed start button to restart? Doesn't matter which wire to which terminal on heater. Do you have multimeter and experience using it?

Eric..This is my daughters dryer so I am relaying what she has said. She indicated it would stop running (motor and heat) after period of time then she could restart after a brief period. I have multimeter and have figured out how to test for continuity (sound) but that's about it. Going to her house tonight so I can test what I need to. What could have happened during element install that would cause overheat situation? Wondering if that is it? For the load (third day) when it did run okay I asked her if it seem overly hot and she indicated no. Thanks for any guidance you can give.

Check continuity on the thermal fuse (two blue wires). This is in the motor circuit and if bad, dryer will not start. Thermal fuses do not reset so the fact that the dryer just shut off and couldn't be restarted til later could be that the motor overload tripped. It will reset itself after it cools but you would still have to press the start button to start it. An overheating dryer is usually due to airflow problems because of too much lint. You need to make sure all the ducts, external and internal, are clear including in the blower housing and that the blower wheel is clear. A faulty operating/cycling thermostat can also cause overheating. The best way to test it is on a hot plate. It should open when it reaches 155 and close again when it drops to 130.
