Kenmore dryer blows cold air. I replaced heat element still no luck? model 96263800


It doesn't necessarily mean the heating element is busted when an electric dryer stops heating. The heating circuit is not just composed solely by the heating element, it is composed by the thermal cut-off, high-limit thermostat, cycling thermostat, motor centrifugal switch, and the timer. The first thing to look at when an electric dryer stops heating is the thermal cut-off. It cuts power to the heating element when it blows most likely due to the failure of the high-limit thermostat. The thermal cut-off must be replaced, together with the high-limit thermostat, if found open. Click on the link below for the detailed instructions in troubleshooting this problem.

Kenmore Elite electric dryer-65942401 and it runs but does not heat. I have heard that best thing to do is replace heating element, but is there anything else that needs replacing along w/it, and we can't...


You need to check the breaker, often the heat 1/2 of the 220 volt breaker trips and is not visually obvious. Best to know so check with a volt meter, or forceably turn off the breaker, FULLY off, press hard, and then back on and test again. If it keeps happening, you may need to have an electrition investigate.

There is very little failure of heating elements, but not unheard of. More common is a bra wire shorts the element. remove it and often you are good to go, but sometimes it burns through.

My dryer does not shut off! continues to heat


HI. This is a defective, or damaged timer control module. It must be replace asap. If this continues, it will damage the element. Replace the timer, if possible. Once replaced, the issue will be solved.

Dyer is not heating up.it turns on and runs but it just does not heat up i took off hose and clean . also looked in back of dyer by taking off clover to look for fuse please help .


Kenmore dryers have what we call a thermo fuse, usually on top on the burner area - I would check continuity on this unit and replace if nesessary.
If the thermo fuse is okay and dryer heats up with gas, check your igniter and/or gas unit coils.
If dryer heats up with electric elements check continuity at both element ends and/or high limit thermostat.

GOOD LUCK!

Kenmore ultra fabric care dryer runs, but does not heat up Same as Christy's. Runs no heat, however, the exhaust vent is clear. Could this be the fuse or heating coil?


could be a thermal fuse,heating element or a heating element relay.if you pop the trim caps off of the sides of the console,and remove the 2 phillips screws in the corners and lift up console you will find a tech sheet inside.if you have a multimeter that you can check continuity with along with the tech sheet,you might be able to figure it out..good luck
