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.

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

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

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.
