Kenmore Electric Dryer 110.62922100/Runs but no heat

Hi, I figure the heating element is probably bad, but I am trying to get the back cover off and after removing the screws it seems like the thing is spot welded on. How can I get access to the internals.

Thanks in advance
Ron

Hi,

egin by removing the end caps found at either end of the console. Lift them from the back, and then pull them towards you. There will be two screws holding the console in place. Remove the screws, and then slide the console towards you and flip it up. You will find an additional three screws at the back of the cabinet top. Remove these and slide the cabinet top towards you and lift it off the unit. Proceed by removing the kickplate. There are two spring catches that need to be disengaged before you can remove the kickplate. Each spring catch is found about four inches in from each side. Use a putty knife or some other thin and flat object to wedge in between the front panel and the kickplate. Push down on the clips with the putty knife to disengage.
Open the dryer door and remove the screws that are holding the hinges to the door. Tilt the door up and pull on it gently to remove it. Continue the dismantling process by removing all the screws you find that are holding the front panel to the unit. There will be door switch screws, ground wire screws, and other screws holding the front panel to the bulkhead.
Reassembling the entire unit is basically the disassembly process in reverse. Replace the front panel of your dryer. Replace the dryer door, and then replace the kickplate. Reattach the cabinet top and then push the control panel back in place and reattach the two end caps.

On some model you need to remove the back panel first.

If you post the complete model number I can get schematics and exploded view.

When theres no heat check these

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.

Kenmore 110.82822102 Electric Dryer runs but no heat.


I think the heating element went bad. Depending on your driers layout, you might have to remove the drum assembly to gain access to the heating element. Once drier drum assembly is removed, check and see if there is 220 volts going to the heating element. If there is, heating element is bad, if no voltage detected, the switch in the control panel is faulty. If you're not comfortable trying to check this out on your next step, I don't blame you. A qualified appliance technician would be the better answer especially working around 220 volts. Hope this works out for you.

Need to replace heating element,where to open dryer


Hi Deborah. I d not have this model of dryer, but I did a similar job on my front-loader. First you should make sure that the heating element is the problem; in my case, there was a fuse and a thermal coupling that might also have caused this behavior. If you search around, you should be able to find a troubleshooting guide for your dryer that details how to test. You will need a screwdriver and a multimeter to follow the procedures. The manual should also describe how to do the replacement, but the basic steps should be similar for all dryers like this:
1. UNPLUG IT!!
2. make sure it is unplugged
3. remove the top. Usually held on with screws in the back and tabs in the front
4. remove the front. May have to remove the door first. if you have front-mounted controls, you will need to unplug the wiring harness(es).
5. remove the drum. I didn't think it was heavy, but that is a subjective thing.
6. the heating element will be mounted on a panel on the back wll of the dryer, probably on a piece of material covered with a reflective coating.
7. Unplug the element from the cabinet wiring, and remove the backing surface with the element. you can test the element for continuity with the multimeter. In my case, the element was visibly broken.
8.The element will probably be strung on a series of wire holders; unstring it.
9. String the new element on in the same way that the old one was strung.
10. put everything back together, and if the element was the problem, you should b good to go.

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. No Heat issue in an electric dryer is usually caused due to three things mainly: Thermal Fuse, Wiring Harness and/or Heating Element. Start with checking the Thermal Fuse which is mounted inside the back cover panel to the exhaust duct and is mounted in white plastic housing. If that’s fine then the Heating Element should be checked. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Kenmore elec dryer runs but won't heat up


Can be several problems: the heat element (coil) can be burned out, one of the over-heat sensors could be bad or overheated and did not reset ( this could be caused by poor air movement through the vent ) check your venting for good air flow. Could be a wiring connection that burned and needs repair because of the hi electric current demaned by the heat element. Goodluck, Macgivor
