It appears your xxxxxxx has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.




Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question

GOD IS GOOD !!!!
DRYER OVERHEATING:

Heating Element
A defective heating element can make a dryer too hot. If the element partially shorts out, it can produce heat all the time, regardless of whether the dryer is calling for heat. Remove the heating element to inspect it. The coils should not be touching each other or anything else.

Other Causes and Conditions
Air Flow Problem
Dryers need good ventilation to work properly. If the vent is clogged it can make the dryer too hot. Clean all of the vent tubing thoroughly.

Cycling Thermostat
Although not common, a defective cycling thermostat can make the dryer too hot. The cycling thermostat is supposed to turn on and off the heat to maintain the proper temperature. If the thermostat is defective it may keep the heat on too long. The thermostat is not adjustable or repairable, it must be replaced.

Felt Seal
Most dryers have a felt seal at the front and rear of the drum to keep the heat inside the drum. If the felt seal is worn away or missing, the dryer may keep heating and make the dryer too hot. This is not common.

Blower Wheel
A defective blower wheel will not spin properly and will not vent the hot air, making the dryer too hot. Check to see if there is adequate airflow out of the dryer.

Kenmore dryer will only work on no heat cycle...any other heat cycle will give pf code. md number 417.84092500


The Kenmore H5T is an electric clothes dryer meant for residential use and manufactured by the Kenmore Company, which manufactures a wide variety of appliances for the home, including refrigerators, dishwashers, microwaves, stoves, and clothes washers and dryers. While most Kenmore clothes dryers work well with only basic care and maintenance, certain problems, such as the dryer not heating, occasionally occur. Troubleshooting this issue may solve the problem without the help of a service technician.
instruction
  • Ensure that the dryer is properly connected to a working grounded power supply. Confirm that the power cord is plugged firmly into the dryer and the power outlet. Reset household fuses or circuit breakers if necessary.
  • 2 Remove the lint screen from the bottom front of the dryer. Pull off all lint so that the filter screen is clean, and replace the lint screen in the dryer.
  • Run the dryer for 5 minutes on a normal cycle and hold your hand under the outside exhaust hood to feel for air movement. If there is no air movement, turn off the dryer and unplug the unit. Disconnect the exhaust vent and clean out any possible obstructions, such as excess lint. Reconnect and confirm that the vent is not kinked or crushed and preventing proper heated air flow.
  • Ensure the dryer is not in a room or outside with ambient temperatures below 45 degrees Fahrenheit. The dryer will be unable to heat properly if the ambient temperature is too low.
  • Avoid overloading the dryer with too many clothes, which will limit proper heat and air flow in the dryer. Make sure the dryer is not set on an "Air Only" dry cycle, which does not provide heat.
  • Contact an authorized service technician if the preceding steps do not resolve the problem.

    Kenmore Stackable washer/dryer Model #11088752793, won't heat


    Hi,
    Either the elements have blown, or it could be a device called a thermal overload which has popped. (There may also be a loose wire which connects to the heating elements). Have your drier checked out by a good handyman or technician.
    Best wishes,

    Auto Dry not advancing


    It sounds like a timer problem since it happens during timed also. Some dryers don't have an actual moisture sensor for auto dry. They work by knowing that as long as the clothes are wet the temp won't go past a certain point. As the clothes dry it trips a thermostat that lets the timer advance. Until this is fixed DON"T trust the timer to shut off the dryer. Sometimes it won't or could leave the dryer running for hours. This has nothing whatsoever to do with fuses. There are no fuses in a dryer. Just high limit thermostats and other devices that will shut off the heat but usually not the motor.
