Kenmore Dryer model # 60202990.... no heat

The dryer is running, but there is no heat. I tested it before buying it, and it worked fine. After getting home, the dryer does not produce any heat at all. I left running for one hour, still there was no heat. I have cleaned the front and back vent, it did not work. Please help me.

I am sending you all the possibilities for your problem, check either of these causes ----and than let me know if it is solved----

Power from the house
Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.


Heating element
Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.


Thermal fuse
On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)


Wiring
A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

My dryer runs but does not heat up or dry clothes. What could be the problem?


I have a Kenmore dryer and it runs but won't heat up and dry the clothes. I don't hear the ignition even turn over. Please help. I can't afford to buy a new dryer at this time.

Kenmore electric dryer (model # 110 60202990) dried a load of clothes like normal. But with the current load, it suddenly stopped heating. How can I fix this?


Hello Friend, Your problem is very simple to fix. You need a thermal fuse, very simple and affordable to replace. To replace the thermal fuse just remove back cover of dryer and look down where the air blows out. Now, just to the left where all the wires are you will see a white plastic part with two wires plugged into it. This part is called a thermal fuse. Just remove these wires and replace the thermal fuse. Your dryer will run like new. Happy to help, Tim.

Dryer won't run.


First, there is an excellent chance you have some kind of flood damage insurance.  It may pay for part of the repair.  You did not tell us what is not working but I'll guess it is the motor.  On many models, there is a switch on the motor which will not allow the elements to heat unless the motor is powered and running.

Runs but no heat


most common cause of no heat is a blown thermal cutout, over temperature cuthout, thermal fuse (any of a dozen or more names for the same article
examine the exhaust vent ducting inside the dryer for screw on device that looks like this d7573a1.jpg or this 0874a9a.jpg, with wires on the terminals. they are not resettable but they are cheap. despite the large number of dryer models there are only a few cutouts, used in multiple dryers, the local parts guy will be able to match it easily.
test with battery annd bulb, or ohmmeter
conducts-good, no conduct- replace
if you havent disposed of them already, retain the heater and thermostat, they are probably good, and will make spares if the parts guy wont buy back the replacements
