Kenmore Dryer Model 417.88042700 No Heat and Blinking Lights

The dryer is about 5 years old and this is the first issue we have had. The dryer will run for a few minutes (but never heats up), stops, beeps and all of the lights on the right side of the panel blink constantly. I have unplugged the dryer for a few minutes and plugged it back in. That didn't work.

From what I have found online, it seems that a new Thermistor (part # 134587700) is the answer. Am I on the right track? Is this an easy part to replace?

Thanks in advance for your help.

I understand that your Kenmore dryer has no heat and the lights are blinking. I have taken some time to research your question here on the Manage My Life website and I noticed that someone else had asked a similar question with a posted response from an expert. I attached the link below for you to view. I hope the link that I provided is helpful. Have a nice day.
