SOURCE: kenmore dryer model number 110.66912691 not heating.

Check the house electrical panel for tripped dryer-circuit breaker-pair. Push off, then on. If immediately re-trips, the dryer has a dead short circuit in it. If they hold, then retry the dryer. If it now works, ok! If not, recheck the breakers as above. If tripped again, there is a likely short in the dryer's heater assembly. The drum must be removed to access the heater.

If this is a new element, this is normal until it has been used a few cycles. Use it and watch it carefully for a while. If it continues have a competent person to take the rear panel off and check for burnt wires or lint inside the unit.

Kenmore dryer will not heat up


I couln't bring anything up using the model number you gave, but generally an electric dryer will have heat if the heating element gets the signal from the switches and it is not open.

If everything works beside the heat, then I would make sure that the heat selector switch is operational and if it is then to replace the heater element.

It means your element needs to be replaced, take it to the Kenmore parts store nearest you, and they will confirm that, and you can get a new one there unless they have to order one in.
Be sure to have the make and model and serial number of your dryer with you.

Kenmore Electric Dryer will not Heat


Define checked everything. Usually when your dryer is not heating but blowing air its one of three things...
1. Thermal fuse in dryer
2. Thermistor in the dryer
3. Heating element in dryer

You need a signal meter with continuity check to accurately test all three componets. Normally the fuse and thermistor are in a set and cost less than 25 bucks. They are easy to replace if you are good with taking things apart. If the element is bad then you need to make sure your lint trap and exhaust hose are clean and kept clean. That is the main cause of the element burning up when it gets lint collected inside the dryer cavity.

In a pinch if the element is bad you can simply find where the metal has broken and try bending the rod so that it touches. The element has to be one solid piece so if there is breaks try and connect them back together until a new one can be purchased.

Please unplug the dryer before doing anything mentioned above.

Hope this helps

I have a kenmore Ellite Dryer that works but is not heating.


Is this a gas or electirc dryer?
If it's an electrical dryer it's probably the heating element.
Pull the dryer out, remove the back panel and look to see if the heating element is heating up (turns red). If not it's the heating element which is pretty easy to change.
Call an appliance parts store with the make and model number before you pull it out to make sure one's available and always take the old one with you to verify it's the same.
Hope this was helpful.
Good Luck!

Kenmore dryer takes to long to dry


You may have to get inside the exhaust assembly ...somtimes there are lint buildups that occur and cause long drying times. Also make sure you don't have a DUAL heating element model. I had one and only one of the elements worked when I repaired the second one it worked great. Most likely is the exhaust block however. Hope this helps.

You need to make sure you have 220V first all the way to the dryer. Make sure you have no blocks (lint blockage). Check your thermostats for continuity. Make sure all the wires are disconnected when testing. If they show good check your heating element not only with the ohm meter but take it out and visually inspect it. They can be bad and show continutiy.
