Note: This question is for the older version of this part, but we thought you might still find it helpful

Our Kenmore Gas Dryer produces low heat, but it takes two full cycles to dry one load of clothes. I'm guessing the High-Limit Thermostat is broke (Part # 3403140). Is this a good guess? The lint screen and trap are clean. The exhaust duct is clean and not kinked.

Jason for Model Number 110.74942300

ANSWER Jason, That is a pretty good place to start, under the circumstances. You should also check the cycling/regulating thermostat as well 3387134 it could also have a weak contact across the 2 large terminals. Good Luck
