Kenmore Elite Model 110.67032601: Hello, I continue to have dryer SHUTDOWN
Error CODE is F 31

[ apparently by overheating ] when dyer shuts down, I use a Temp measuring gun getting 275 degrees at heater outlet inside dryer
I have REPLACED the heater coil 3 times [ 2 had broken wires after over heat ]
I have REPLACED 8557403 inlet THERMISTOR HIGH LIMIT STAT twice
I have REPLACED thermal fuse 8318314 twice
I have completely disassembled the dryer CLEANING OUT [ blower fan - dryer vent & hose ]
I have BLOWN out the dryer motor with air
I have CHECKED ALL above components with Ohm meter [ ALL ARE WHERE THEY SHOULD BE ]
Have so much money & time sunk in this, don’t want go for a new one..
ANY help would be appreciated

UPDATE: I can dry clothes on LOW HEAT with NO shutting down, does that mean I have a problem with 220 ??

275 is way too hot. It shouldn't get above 175 F.

A wiring diagram would be helpful, but I think its your control board. I think the relay is welding its contacts together and heating all the time.

I'm pretty sure that if you buy the part from here...

And it doesn't work, they will let you return it. I would ask them just to make sure.
