Dryer will heat up then kicks off after 3-4 minutes or will trip breaker. Dryer is 4 years old. Will run fine on air setting which leads me to believe it is a heating element sag or something else? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

Don for Model Number Kenmore 400 dryer

ANSWER Hello Don, This is much more likely to be a shorted main motor assembly. If you could re-post with the model number from the units' I.D. tag, we could research the diagram for your unit and give a more detailed diagnosis.
