Dryer wont heat


The only thing left to check is the voltage at the heating coil. IF it is not present then the timer or relay is bad.

Kenmore dryer 110.86864100 - Where is the moisture sensor?


Ain't no moisture sensor. This is is not an electronic sensing machine. It uses another method to determine dryness. An orange wire connects to the base of the heating element. The timer motor is driven by power from it in auto dry. The timer motor is VERY slow. Slower than most dryer timer motors.As the clothes get dryer the heat is not needed so the element is turned off by the control thermostat which is mounted next to the skinny white fuse on the blower housing. This allows for the turtle like motor on the timer to advance. Once the clothes get to the point of dryness the heater stays off way longer and the timer motor advances on over to the cool down and carry on over to the end of cycle. So the clothes won't always be dry due to factors like lint buildup in the blower housing, venting to outside and so forth. having said that my mom bought a brand new Kenmore dryer and I set it on 55 minutes timed drying. At the end of that them clothes is still damp. I then set it to auto dry high heat and that usually gets em dry. I think the main probo with this dryer is the thermostat ain't set as high as older models to keep the heat at a moderate temp so that the limits won't blow on models in apts and such. Just a theory.

Dryer won't shut off.


Will the timer advance in the NO HEAT mode? If it does advance you would know it has something to do with the temp alright but if it don't advance in No Heat then the timer motor is bad in my opinion. And it can fail by more than one way. Open winding OR stripped motor gear.

Kenmore front load dryer won't heat and timer broken


The most likely cause is the timer is bad. It turns on and off things as it cyles through and the first step is to get the tub turning before it turns on the heat.

The timer doesn't work and the dryer does not heat up.


I would look for reasons why the dryer has this condition. Remove the vent pipe and see if their is lint buildup. If you see air restrictions that means your safety has tripped or melted.
That model number is incomplete. Gotta shoot from the hip on this one:

Get the back off there. You made no mention if the dryer was not working nly said it was not heating sooo.....
I think if you found this:

9_29_2011_4_29_16_am.jpgand the dryer does turn and it is electric heat then this is the probo:

9_29_2011_4_30_15_am.jpg
It is mounted on the heating element housing:

9_29_2011_4_31_29_am.jpg
OK if all of the safety are good when being checked with a meter with their wires removed yall could have a bad timer:

9_29_2011_4_32_39_am.jpg
OR a bad circuit breaker

9_29_2011_4_33_07_am.jpg
If your unit shuts down in less than 10 minutes then I would guess yall have electronic sensors but since you made no mention of that being the case then I feel like your model must be one which features autodry. Autodry uses the limits on the heater housing to determine movement of the timer motor. When the heat is on the timer won't advance and when no heat is applied it moves a little bit. Eventually them clothes will get so dry the heater will be needed less and less by the control thermostat. At which point the timer motor will advance steadily towards cool down mode.So what goes wrong? The vent being blocked causes excessive heat. If the filter housing was blocked like this:

9_29_2011_4_39_05_am.jpg
The fuse would melt and kill the motor through the door switch circuit. It would be as if you opened the door. The dryer won't go no mo. But if the vent was clogged the fuse would not melt because it is rated for 350f. That leads me to believe your small limit on the heater housing has failed. That being the case it will run all day and never dry them clothes. NOW if yours is a gas model then that is an animal of a different nature. A gas dryer that is also an autodry model would never give power to the gas assembly if this duct fuse was blown:

9_29_2011_4_43_23_am.jpg
It is wired into the gas valve assembly circuit And if that is the case then yall have a clogged filter housing like this one:

Dryer wont shut off unless turned off and dryer just tumbles with no heat.


If it won't turn off or heat then it is probably the timer or if it is a newer unit the control board.

Dryer timer won't shut off at end of cycle. Dryer runs, but no heat. It is a Whirlpool model number LGR4634JQ2.


Since you say that the dryer runs but have no heat, plus the timer won't shut off the odds are the timer is bad. The timer would tell the burner when to be on and when to shut down.
