Kenmore clothes dryer model number 110.86880800: drum turns but no heat

    Thankyou to both zeusfaber and abishek33. The problem definitely was the thermal cut-out as well as the thermostat. Apparently Sears either believes, or knows these two generally go out together, as they package both parts together. As I already had purchased the thermostat due to one of its tabs coming off when I disconnected the female connection, I knew that part was bad, and sad to say did not complete looking for bad parts.



    I also checked the heater element, and it came through with flying colors, as did one other thermostat and the timer.



    It works!



    Thanks again, you saved me time and money.

My instinct on this one is to look for a thermal cutout and to try to reset it.

Not familiar with the layout of the Kenmore 110's (they're not marketed in this part of the world), but a good place to start is probably inside the top of the machine.

Before fiddling, turn the power off and unplug the machine.

Look for a metal duct leading into the drum housing. This will probably have the blower mounted at one end, then the element embedded in it, then, before it leads into the drum housing, a collection of thermostats and safety cutouts (usually one or two of each) mounted on the outside of it.

Safety cutouts and thermostats are likely to look something like one of the pictures at http://www.tdspares.co.uk/products.asp?cat=68

Start by looking for cutouts with reset buttons - press the button on any you find and see if this fixes the problem. It's a good sign you've found the right one if it clicks when pressed.

If that doesn't work, use a multimeter to test across the contacts of each thermostat and cutout in turn. They should all have a very low resistance. reset or replace any that don't.

Once you've got the machine working again, you need to find out what made things trip and eliminate the underlying problem. This is usually a matter of cleaning all the accumulated lint out the machine.

Good luck.

Hi Electric heating elements, found in electric dryers, are self-contained units located in the back of the dryer. A defective heating element is frequently the source of no-heat or drying problems. Remove the back service panel to gain access to the elements.
The heating elements are located inside the heater ducts. If you think a heating element is faulty, test it with a volt-ohm-milliammeter (VOM) set to the RX1 scale. Disconnect the leads from the power terminals and clip one probe of the VOM to each terminal. The meter should read about 12 ohms. If the reading is higher than 20 ohms, the heater is faulty and should be replaced. Replace a faulty heater with a new one of the same type and electrical rating. A heater connected to a 115-volt line usually has an 8.4-ohm resistance; a heater connected to a 220-volt line usually has 11 ohms resistance.e the heater:

Step 1: Remove the back of the dryer. If necessary, also remove the cabinet top.

Step 2: Disconnect the leads and remove the screws that hold the duct in position. Then lift the entire heater unit out of the dryer.

Step 3: Remove the screws that hold the heating element in the duct.

Step 4: Slip the new heating element into the heating duct the same way the old one came out. Be careful not to damage the resistance coils. Replace the screws that hold the heating element in the duct, reconnect the leads, and screw the unit back into position

It's not drying our clothes at all


Problem sounds like the heating element has gone out. Depending on the model, usually behind the drum. Needs to be taken apart and replaced.
