Question about Kenmore 62602 Electric Dryer

Can't remove back of Kenmore 66901

I'm very inexperienced in repairing a dryer and no real electrica knowledge. I've printed a great deal of help for my main problem whick is, the drum turns, but, no heat. I've had dryer for years. It has been a very good dryer. I'm trying to fined fuses, thermostat...etc. The back of the dryer has screws which I removed, but the back seems to be welded on in specific spots and won't come off. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I can't call a tech at this time. Thanks.

Where is thermal fuse

If your Kenmore dryer has stopped producing heat, chances are the problem lies with the dryer's thermal fuse. A fire-prevention safety device, the thermal fuse is designed to disrupt the flow of electricity to the dryer's heating mechanisms if the dryer temperature reaches a predetermined maximum. Once activated, the thermal fuse must be replaced to restore the heat to your dryer. In Kenmore brand residential dryers, the thermal fuse will be located in one of two places.


Front Panel Access
1 Unplug your Kenmore dryer from its power source. Make sure that the appliance is unplugged before proceeding.
2 Use a flathead screwdriver or putty knife to remove the dryer's bottom service panel, sometimes called the toe panel. Slide the screwdriver or putty knife along the top of the toe panel until you've located the toe panel clips. The clips are usually located about four inches in from either side of the service panel. Push down on the toe clips with the screwdriver or putty knife to release. Remove the panel and set it aside.

3 Locate the thermal fuse on your Kenmore dryer. Look for the thermal fuse directly above the dryer's motor; it looks like a white strip with two wires, and is usually mounted off to one side. See Resources for a diagram of thermal components.
Rear Access
4 Disconnect the Kenmore dryer from its power source while locating the thermal fuse.
5 Move the dryer away from the wall so that you can access the back of the appliance.
6 Use a screwdriver to remove the dryer's back panel. Set the panel and loose screws aside until you are ready to replace them.
7 Locate your Kenmore dryer's thermal fuse just above the exhaust port. The thermal fuse looks like a white strip with two connected wires.

Tips & Warnings

Clogged exhaust ports are a common cause of thermal fuse failure. While you've got your Kenmore dryer in pieces, clean out the exhaust ducts to keep it functioning at its best.

Take all proper safety precautions when working with electrical appliances. Make sure that your Kenmore dryer is unplugged before attempting to service it.

In General the deconstruction of the door is not needed. With a great deal of Kenmore dryers you can simply turn the door 180 degrees and reinstall it.

PF means power Failure unplug hold the cancel button for 3-5 seconds if the pf doesnt disappear then unplug the unit for 7 minutes this will make the control reset on the board if the pf still doesnt fade then you would have a control issue and most likely have to replace the control or call a technician if you have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped when our chat has fully concluded Thanks Rick

Kenmore 600 timer no longer works

This is not an easy task. you will need to disassemble the entire control panel to extract the bad or faulty timer. Extraction can be tough on some model. this will cause an inexperienced do it yourselfer to break off fragile retaining clips and screw anchors as well. you will also need to make sure that the wiring harness is re attached to the new replacement timer correctly. this is important. We recommend calling for service on all electrical repairs if you have minimal experience in this field of repair. Unfortunately , when these timers are damaged, you cannot repair them. you will need to replace the bad timer with a entirely new timer.
