Heating element may have burned out. Replace with universal element. Unplug dryer. Remove back. Remove housing covering element. Visually inspect the element and the terminals to ensure it is intact. If the element is broken, carefully unthread it without stretching it as the overall length will be required to prestretch the new one. Follow the same path to thread in the new element. Ensure the housing is clean inside as lint can cause the element to become damaged. Tighten the connections. Close it up. Reconnect power.

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.

Kenmore 70 Series Dryer not heating and not cutting off


I had an identical problem to yours this weekend with my Kenmore dryer. There were 2 problems.

1. Timer was broken. Does not advance to "OFF" position on timed dry, however it still works for auto-dry.

2. Thermal fuse was blown. Upon replacing, dryer heated up normally.

I believe when the timer broke, the dryer had kept running and blew the thermal fuse. On Sears' website, thermal fuse is $5.30, timer is roughly $80.

Dryer will turn on, but no heat is inside?


Most likely a bad heating element or bad/broken connection.
