Check thermostats on fan duct housing. the white one is a thermal fuse, not the problem if unit runs. for frontloader matching models thermostats are up front. remove lower cover and use ohm meter. wiring diagram avail there as well. then check element.

Kenmore stackable washer/dryer. Model 417.93802209. Dryer will run but won't heat. Flipped breaker. Suggestions?


Possible that the heating element has burnt out, or that the thermostat that controls the element is defective. If you have a low or warm setting try that also as it may use a different element? Good luck.

Replaced heating coil on Kenmore Elite still getting F5 error anything else I can do


see this and fix it. God bless you

Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? If you plug something else into the outlet, does it work? If not, check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.

Door Switch

If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. Check for continuity you should have none with door open, and should have a reading when closed. If not replace the door switch.

Thermal Fuse / Thermal Cut out

On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel or behind the front panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing or is sometimes round and made of metal and plastic.

If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse this is the most common reason for blowing the fuse. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.)

Wiring

Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. In this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the wire is attached.

Behind this drum on the upper left hand corner is the fuse

If it was tripped however the dryer would not operate as it is tied into the door switch.

You can get a restring kit for less than 20 bucks for these

Get top off then the controls off there then remove the front like this:

The heater is on the back side of the drum so it has to come on out
I did a repair on a similar dryer last year and took some photos

The dryer will not heat. I believe the heating element is broken. Can this be fixed? How much will it cost to be fixed?


Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.



if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....



If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.



check out this electric no heat tip...
