    I have same problem only my dryer is spot welded on back. You say to get to the inside from the back. Break the welds or not? Or did kenmore make models to get to from the front before I go breaking all those welds?

I had the same issue and replaced the light bulb inside in the back of the dryer and now it kicks out heat. not sure if that acts like a fuse or needs to work to complete the circuit, but it works now.

The thermal fuse is most likely the problem there are 2 different ones they are about 20 dollars . first I would check the fuse do you have a meter ? if so you need to check for continuity.

Knemore Series 80 Dryer - Blows Thermal Fuses, Humming Noise

The heating element is shorted to ground. You will need to replace the heating element and the thermal fuse, both available at the link below.

Thermal Fuse $6.99

110.64872400 kenmore dryer 80 series. dryer makes humming noise when start button is pushed, can turn drum manually. please help

The humming noise is most likely coming from the timer motor and not from the drive motor. This characterizes a problem with a blown thermal fuse which is wired in series with the drive motor and located on the blower housing. Power to the motor is cut when the thermal fuse blows open and consequently the drive motor cannot run. No dryer function works when the drive motor cannot run.

Unplug the dryer or disconnect power then pry the lower access panel off with a flat-head screwdriver as shown.


Remove the screw from the lint duct bracket and remove the bracket. Remove the two hex-head screws from the lint duct and remove the duct to access the thermal fuse and the cycling thermostat.


Click on the links below for the detailed troubleshooting of this problem and the parts diagram. The cycling thermostat(part number
3387134) must also be replaced once the thermal fuse(part number 3392519) is found open.

The model number posted doesn't to exist but one for sure is that all Whirlpool Electric Dryers do have a thermal cut-out (off) which is actually a non-resettable fuse located on the heater housing. Click on the link below then enter the exact model of your dryer then select and click bulkhead and locate the part named thermal cut-out/off, a non-resettable fuse.

Check the supply fuses first . There is a non- resettable thermal fuse but the dryer will not start if it is gone. There is also a non -resettable thermostat on the upper side of the heater housing.

I cannot afford a service tech right now to come to the house. I hope you can help me through this service. I have a kenmore elite clothes dryer model # 110.63012101 Dryer was not making any heat. ...

you're doing the right thing except for changing out the element without reading it out first.when you check the parts make sure the dryer is unpluged and that you pull at least one of the wires off the part you're checking. check the thermostats on the heater box part
279769 which is part 47,also remove the duct that the lint filter slides into and clean it,if you have a long vent line remove it from the back of the dryer and blow it out with a leaf blower and if you have a shop vac put it on blow and blow off the motor and blow all the lint from the back inside of dryer so it blows to the front and vac it up so you don't have to pull the drum if you don't want to.the thermal cutoff pops when it gets to hot in the dryer most likely from a back up in the vent line or the duct,also go outside and make sure the vent is clear,you should be fine

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.

No Heat

Hi, I worked on one of these yesterday and have found that the thermal fuse blows first. If your dryer has the lint filter on top then the thermal fuse is behind the back panel and is located on the same duct as the lint filter.It will usually have blue wires on it instead of black or red.
