I have a Kenmore electric dryer model 110.63932101 with no heat. I'm a licensed electrician- I checked the limits and the thermister, all ok. I have aprroximately 65 volts between the 2 leads going to the heat elements with the leads removed and the machine running. Can you point me in the right direction? Thanks Brian

If you put the leads back, can you still measure a voltage between the heating terminal leads?

you could just be measuring a stray voltage...

if there is still 65 volts, the heat setting could have been low and it should be heating.

if you have a current meter, you can us it to measure the current being drawn by the heating element.

My lg dryer dle3777 electric is not drying. The cooling cycle light is blinking and the air never heats up.

Check the heating element, Hi limit or any thermisters(Especially on the exhaust). The heating element should read about 40 ohms.

See if this helps.

check the thermal fuse if it is blown also change the high limit thermal cut-off fuse shows your parts. go there and enter model number. Also check the heat element. to get into it remove the lint filter and the two screws you'll see there then pry the top up at the front corners. And through the back you should find the heat element and blower housing and thermal fuse and high limit fuse and cycling thermostat.

Dryer will not heat

Have a certified electrician check your outlet. The dryer requires 220VAC for the heating elements to work. If this is ok, check the heating elements it may be broken.If this is ok, check the high and low limit switches, this could be defective.

Kenmore dryer not heating

  • before you go any further check the outlet and make sure you are getting a full 220v
  • sometimes one side of the circuit breaker will trip causing the unit to run but with no heat.
