Greetings, oh honoroable sir.  My problem can best be described thusly:  

Depending upon the position of the dial, my Kenmore 110.66722694 dryer will heat up whether or not it's running.  If the dial is turned anywhere other than any of the "off" positions (in other words, say, at 50 minutes), it will immediately start to get hot, whether or not I press the start button, whether or not it is running--in fact, whether or not the door is opened or closed.  It will continue to heat until I physically turn the dial to "off"--again, whether or not the door is open or not. 


Needless to say, this seems pretty unsafe, even to a pitiful novice such as myself.

 

Your advice will be greately appreciated.  Many thanks.

Check your heating element, it is grounded to the canister or the bracket it is strung inside of....a grounded element will heat at all times if the timer is on or the dryer is plugged in and the timer is not in the off position....unplug the dryer till this is repaired as you have live voltage going thru the case at all times...

Forgive my ignorance, but are you saying that the element is grounded, but shouldn't be, or isn't grounded, but should be?

Thanks for your quick response!

Well, Pegi, you were absolutely right!

I pulled the element, and a section of one of the coils had virtually welded itself to the bracket.  Thus, the short you so quickly diagnosed.

I replaced the element, and am back in business.  Problem solved.

I can't thank you enough for the quick response and the accurate diagnosis.

You rule!!!!
