You could remove and bench test the theromostat. my kenmore would not complete the circut to heat at all with a faulty thermostat. Just use a jumper wire to bypass it and test it THERE WILL BE NO SHUT OFF COULD HEAT UP TOO MUCH IF LEFT RUNNING.

My dryer works but no heat


If your dryer runs, but does not heat the following link will explain how to troubleshoot:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r630242-dryer_runs_but_not_heat

The majority of dryer heat related problems are caused by poorly installed, improper, kinked, or clogged ventilation exhaust ducting. Pay particular attention to the section that discusses ventilation. Failure to ensure the dryer is properly ventilated will result in repeated failures of any components you may replace. In addtion, this can become a fire hazard.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Kenmore Elite He4 Dryer Model Number 110.85872400 won't heat up and dry clothes; husband thinks it is the heating element but is having a hard time gett it out


Before assuming you have a bad heating element, read through the following link:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r630242-dryer_runs_but_not_heat

Most dryer heat related problems are attributed to poor ventilation which, in turn, causes the dryer to overheat to the point of failure. More commonly the Thermal Cut-Out (TCO) fails. The component acts as a fuse and must be replaced if bad. In addition, if the TCO is determined to be defective, it is recommended that you replace the Hi-Limit Thermostat at the same time. Both these components work in conjunction with the heating element and are mounted on the heater box. The TCO is located on the end opposite the heating element terminals. The Hi-Limit Thermostat is located adjacent to the heating element leads. These two components are often sold as a kit. If you fail to replace both of them you can experience premature failure of the component you do replace.

Pay particular attention to the section that discusses proper dryer ventilation. If you haven't checked or cleaned the exhaust ducting any time recently, now might be a good time to do so . A dryer left in a clogged or poorly ventilated condition will cause repeated failures in the heating circuit. Not to mention this creates a fire hazard.

If you read through the link and determine that you have a bad heating element, follow these steps to remove:

1. Unplug the dryer and remove the lower panel under the door.
2. Remove the lint screen from the dryer door.
3. Remove the blower fan housing vent cover.
4. Disconnect and label the component wiring on the heater box.
5. Loosen the mounting screw on the heater box front support.
6. The entire heater box, with element inside, should slide out of the dryer.
7. There should be a couple of mounting screws on the component side of the heater box that you need to remove and the entire element slides out.

If you still have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Dryer heating but not drying the clothes


be 100% sure there is a good air flow outside the house where the dryer vents out this is the most comon problem. Next check in side the dryer drum at the back give a slight tug on the drum toward the front of the dryer you are looking to mack sure there is not a gap between the bulkhead and drum felt. If there is a good seal there then I would repace the Theremostat on the blower housing this is the cycle theremostat

Clothes do not dry but the heating element is okay


It takes more than a heating element to dry your clothes. A dryer needs proper ventilation in order to circulate air efficiently. The following link explains this in detail:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385301-thorough_dryer_advice

If you're dryer heating element is coming on and cycling like it should, I would strongly recommend you clean and inspect your dryer interior and/or the ventilation ducting. In particular, read the third paragraph of the link for a quick way of determining if you have an exhaust problem. I hope this helps you.

yes very possible timer but my guess on the times i seen the problem would be the heating element are the thermo fuse on the elemnt canister when the heater does not come on the timer will not move ck the heater and the fuses on the heater canister it will fix your problem
