Kenmore dryer replaced heting element now it does not blow any air

Hi, I have a kenmore series 90 electric dryer model #11060912990. I replaced the heating element because the air was blowing and it was not hot. I first checked its continuity and it was bad. After changing I put it back together now not only is the air not hot it does not blow at all. I checked all the air flow areas for stoppage. Could someone help before I go out of my mind! Dan

HI danon this dryer its common to have the blower wear out, it slides on the motor shaft, and what they do is wear out the flat in the blower. that could have caused the element to fail. check the blower thanks the appliance doc. please rate my answer. thanks

Where to find fuses. My dryer is not heating up.


Does your dryer have power? If yes, then check (1) the flow of air outside the house from your dryer tube and (2) your circuit breaker panel for each circuit in the house (I've not seen fuses/breakers built into dryers -- though that could change). Then check (3) your heating element, (4) thermostat, (5) high-temp thermal cutoff switch, and (6) for debris in the air flow path to / from from the centrifugal fan.

My Sears Kenmore 90 Series takes too long to dry cloths


First you need to make sure that the lint trap is completely clean. I don't mean just taking the screen off and making sure there isn't lint on that. You need to take the cover off of the back of the dryer and remove the shute the lint screen slides into. That can be backed up and it's quite common. Also when that happens it tends to blow out the fuse that is located in the same general area. It's about an inch long, white, with two wires connected by plug on terminals. Make sure you unplug the dryer if you're going to check that. Remove the two wires and with an electrical tester check for continuity across the two terminals. If there isn't continuity you'll also need a new fuse, Hope that helps.

Kenmore Gas Dryer does not dry clothes.


If this is the electric version then after 15 years you probably need a new heating element, they are not difficult to install and are not terribly expensive as a DIY project.

Need help with gas dryer Kenmore 90 series serial #MK0211114 the gas does not ignite electric is working fine


This could be several things thermal fuse,hi limit thermostat,flame sensor, ignitor,or coils. There is a video on troubleshooting a gas dryer at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html this will walk you thru the troubleshooting procedure. It is a different model but troubleshooting will be the same. You could also check the video on the electric heating element replacement that is a kenmore 90 and most of the parts will be the same. That one will give you a good idea of what thermostat is what.

On the Kenmore series 90 electric dryer, where is the thermal fuse located.


The Thermal Fuse is located on the air blower housing. Its a small white plastic component with two wire leads.

The Thermal Cut-Out (TCO) is located on the outside of the heater box on the end opposite the heating element terminals.

The reason I mention both these components is because some people confuse the two and use the words interchangeably. There is a difference between the two components and what they do.

DOUBLE CHECK YOUR SYMPTOMS:

If your dryer does not run at all, check your Thermal Fuse.

If your dryer runs, but does not heat you need to check the Thermal Cut-Out.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know what symptoms you are having. Please include your complete model number (located on a nameplate around the door opening) so that I can determine how your dryer is configured. I hope this is helpful to you.

It sounds like your heating element has broken. There are several links provided on this site on how to replace it. You might want to take a look at davesrepair.com to purchase a new one. He has pretty good prices on the element.
