SOURCE: kenmore gas dryer not heating

GAS DRYER, NO HEAT. CHECK THE HEAT SETTING FIRST.
IS IT ON AIR FLUFF? I'M NOT BEING SMART, BUT YOU WOULD BE SURPRISED HOW MANY CALLS I TAKE THAT ARE ON AIR FLUFF. SECOND, LISTEN FOR A DISTINCT CLICK WHEN YOU TURN ON THE DRYER. IF YOU HEAR IT, LOOK IN THE INSPECTION HOLE ON THE FRONT OF THE DRYER, OR REMOVE THE TOE PLATE TO VIEW THE IGNITOR. IF THE IGNITOR GLOWS AND THEN CLICKS OFF BUT NO FLAME, YOU HAVE A BAD SOLENOID ON THE GAS VALVE. IF THE IGNITOR GLOWS, BUT NEVER CLICKS OFF, THE RADIANT SENSOR ATTACHED TO THE SIDE OF THE BURNER ASSEMBLY IS BAD.

IF YOU DON'T HEAR A DISTINCT CLICK WHEN YOU TURN ON THE DRYER, THE MOST LIKELY CAUSE IS THE THERMAL FUSE LOCATED ON THE BACK OF THE DRYER DOWN NEAR THE EXHAUST DUCT. IT IS A SMALL WHITE ITEM ATTACHED TO THE EXHAUST DUCT WITH TWO WIRES ATTACHED.

SOURCE: Kenmore ultra fabric care dryer runs, but does not heat up

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

SOURCE: dryer heats, tumbles clothes, blows air out exhause vent, but wont dry clothes

what type is this electric or gas? have you removed the exsaust from the wall and ran a load like this? if you have heat and this is an electric dryer it sounds like you have a blockage in your house. if the dryer runs fine without the exsaust attached then that is your problem. let me know

SOURCE: DLG5932 gas dryer blows its overheat fuse, after

The dryer is overheating but is not the fault of the vent. Have the technician check the operating thermistor on the exhaust behind the blower wheel. This thermistor acts as the thermostat for this dryer and if it is off will either not allow the dryer to heat or will overheat the dryer like in your case and cause the thermal fuse to blow out or trip. He should measure ohms and according to temperature and should have access to what it should measure. If the thermistor measures bad, replace thermistor. If this measures good the control board is reading the thermistor wrong and the board will need to be replaced.
Thank you

Will dryer still run and heat if one of the thermostats (cycling[internal bias], high limit, and/or thermal cut-off) is faulty? Would it simply 'blow' the thermal fuse (that i just replaced) again?


if the thermal fuse keeps blowing it's because the dryer needs a cleanout.you need to clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into vac out the inside of dryer where the motor is and if you have a shop vac put it on blow and blow off the motor,there's alot of lint stuck inside it that the vac can't get out,you can blow the lint from the back of dryer to the front so you don't have to pull the drum to clean it.if the vent line is a long run from the back of dryer to the outside vent i use a leaf blower to clean out the line,i've blown out bird nests and big balls of wet lint after people told me the vent line was clear also make sure the outside vent is clear no screens or cages if there is remove them all they do is catch lint.do this once a year so you don't have a fire and you won't have to replace parts from overheating,thermal fuse is a safety that will pop if the dryer runs to hot mostly from a clogged dryer

unplug the dryer,remove the lint filter,take off the bottom panel and remove the duct that the lint filter slides into,clean the duct out,while you have the duct off on top and to the right of the blower wheel housing you'll see a 3390719 thermal fuse,remove one of the wires and check it with your meter to see if it's good,most of the time if the dryer hasn't been cleaned out the fuse will blow,the dryer runs to hot and the fuse is a safety so you don't have a fire and so the dryer doesn't run hotter than it should. vac out the inside of dryer and if you have a shop vac it blows on the other side,blow off the motor and blow the lint from the back forwards so you don't have to remove the drum,next you have to clean out the vent line,if it's a long run from the back of dryer to the outside flapper i use a leaf blower to blow out the line,you should clean the dryer once a year,if the fuse is good you need to check with your meter the ignitor,the sensor and the gas coils to see what's bad,if you need anymore help let me know,good luck,when you're reading anything out with the meter make sure you remove at least one of the wires or you'll get a false reading

I have a kenmore laundry station, that has a washer on the bottom and a dryer on the top. I replaced the thermal disks, the dryer heated for about 24 hours, then it stopped heating again. Do I need to...


do you mean the thermal fuse?if it popped again it's probably overheating,you need to clean out the vent line and the duct that the lint filter slides into or it will keep doing this,if the vent line is long you can blow it out with a leaf blower,make sure nothing is blocking the outside vent,the fuse is a safety switch that pops when the dryer runs to hot,gotta clean out that dryer once a year

check outside to see if the air is blowing out with force,if the vent line is blocked with lint,also take off the bottom panel,remove the lint filter and take off the metal duct that the filter slides into,clean that out and vac out the inside of the dryer,if you have a shop vac the other side of it blows,blow off the motor and blow all the lint from the back to the front so you won't have to pull the drum to clean it,you should do this at least once a year more so with gas because you have an open flame in there and you don't want a fire,if the vent line is a long run i use a leaf blower to blow out all the lint out of the line,this is a common problem,next you'll start popping the thermal fuse or high limit thermostat

Kenmore Elite Sensor Smart Gas Dryer - no hot air


unplug the dryer,if you haven't cleaned out the dryer check the thermal fuse located on top of the blower wheel housing,remove bottom panel,then remove lint filter,now remove the duct that the lint filter slides down into,now you'll be able to check the thermal fuse located on the top right side of the blower wheel housing,there's also a thermister there too,the fuse is the one on the left,part number 3392519 or 3390719,remove one of the wires and read it out with your meter.also while your in there vac out the inside of dryer,if you have a shop vac put it on blow and blow off all the lint that's built up on the motor and you can also blow the lint that's in the back of dryer forwards so you won't have to pull the drum,if you have a long run on the vent line from the wall to the outside blow it out with a leaf blower,if there is any blocks in the vent line,the duct or lint inside the dryer you could have a fire so this should be done every year,now if the fuse is good you gonna have to read out the ignitor,the sensor and the gas coils,if you have parcial heat it's definetly the gas coils,when they heat up they stop working when they're bad,if you need anything else let me know,so check the thermal fuse first,then the ignitor,sensor and coils,if they are good check to see if power is coming down to fuse and ignitor,you have a computer board on this dryer but most of the time it's the fuse and a dryer clean out
