Why doesn't my Kenmore 110 98575120 dryer heat up?


Hello,
Most likely the thermal fuse is bad. Here' the part as well as a video of how to check it. http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/b6p17/Kenmore-Washer-Dryer-Combo-Thermal-Fuse/3399849/527775?modelNumber=110.98575120&ss=a17b6d170762&mr=1

You'll need to remove the back panel of the dryer to get to it. It'll be located on the outlet duct neat where the hose hooks up. Don't forget to clean out the vent all the way to the outside. Poor airflow is why they fail. If your vent is clear than replace the t-stat on the heat element as well as the fuse.
Hope this helps. Good luck,
John

Kenmore Elite Oasis ST electric dryer does not heat


You need to replace the heating coil that is usually the problem when you get air and and the tumbler is moving but no drying you can also check the lint catcher and clear out your dryer outgoing vent remove the hose check the dryer vent where the vent hose is connected and the vent going outside the house before changing the heating coil .

Is there a theromostat reset button on an Asko TL751 Electric Dryer


Have you clean the air vent out the one leading to the outside? One time we had one do the same thing because the vet was blocked it heated up to quick and sent the the message that the clothes was dry. I hope this helps

My Kenmore Elite Model# 110.63932101, is not heating. Will run but no heat. This happened once before and I thoroughly cleaned out all the vents, etc and it began to heat. The very next use, no heat again....


Take your vent pipe off at the dryer and see it it heats if it does
it is your outide vend stoped up. If it don't heat, check all fuses,
thermastats, cutoff fuse on heat box and the heating element.
Did you clean around the blower? Hope this helps. If you removed any wires are they connected correctly?

My Kenmore HE5 dryer will not run without blowing an internal fuse. The repairman replaced the fuse, and it blew again. The dryer heats up but will not turn it's heating element off until the fuse blows....


Has any one checked the exhaust vent,other than a bad thermostat the number one cause for the thermal fuse to open is a clogged or restricted exhaust vent flow, the entire vent system needs to be checked ( not just the hose from the unit to the wall) for proper air flow. Turn the unit on TIMED ,AIR DRY (NO HEAT) and go outside to the exhaust vent and check the air flow,if there is any question as to weather the air flow is sufishent get someone out to clean the exhaust vent ,it always a good idea to clean out every few years regardless to help prevent build up of lint witch could cause a fire......Hope this Helps Good Luck

Kenmore elite , no heat


Check the following to address this issue.




1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses. An electric dryer uses two circuit breakers or fuses, and if only one of two is tripped or blown, the dryer might still run but not heat. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

2. Heating element
A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

My kenmore electric dryer wont heat mondel 110.86880100


I know you cleaned the lint filter so I won't even mention it:)

Is it possible that your vent hose runs along the floor (perhaps behind the dryer, or maybe even under a raised floor beneath your dryer - as mine used to) before going up and out to the outside vent? If so it could be that water has seeped in through the vent opening from outside and become trapped in the hose and is acting like a drain trap and blocking moist air from escaping which is causing the clothes not to dry.

This is what happened to mine once anyway. A cracked vent flap was all it took for the water to build up over time. Unfortunately mine ran under the floor and I had to actually tear up my floor in order to remove the water without having it flow all over my house. Fixed the drying problem though (and a new vent flap insured that it didn't happen again).
