Sorry couldnt find your modle number, but kenmore dryers are enerally whirlpools in which case are easy to replace. the harder issue is determining if this is your problem.I would assume your guessing on a bad heater, only for the face that if you truly did check hte heater, you would find how to remove it( a few screws will release it from its mounting. A simple check with a Meter will determine if indeed it has gone bad. A more likely source or just as common cause of no heat would be a blown thermal fuse, or a bad high limit thermostat, all can be checked for continuity with a meter

Kenmore Dryer, Model # 11063102100, does not dry.


Does the drum still turn. If so probably just needs a new heating element. VERY easy to replace. Usually instructions to replace on or in new element box or just google instructions.
New heating element would be my first move to repair dryer.
Also, if you use softeners or dryer sheets, Wash lint screen with dawn and soft scrub brush to remove oils and residue (even if it dont look like there is none there there is) to extend your heating element use.

Kenmore Series 70 Dryer


I'm not familiar with your dryer model but general advice regarding dryers with the problem that you have described would be to ensure that any filter on the outlet is clean, whether it be a condenser or traditional external vent.

Ensure, if it is vented rather than condensing (only connected to a drain) that the vent tube has clear access to expel the damp air circulated during the drying process.

If the wash load is heating to a substantial temperature in the dryer, it isn't the element causing the problem.

MY DRYER DOESN'T GET HOT


If it's completely cold, you probably have a burn out heating element. If it gets warm and takes forever to dry, then it's probably the fan wheel.

Hope that helps...
