Question about Kenmore Dryers
Our dryer will not heat, is it similar to another model number or another brand that is easier to find a parts diagram?
Repairclinic.com has a comprehensive parts diagram for almost any machine. A dryer with no heat is a very common problem, there are several thermostats and safety cutoffs that can make dryers not heat. Thankfully they are reletivly easy to diagnose. All you need are some basic hand tools and most important, an ohm meter. Most of the time all the thermostats will be in one section of the cabinet (top, bottom, back) to test them, make sure the power is OFF, unplug the wires from the thermostat(s) and put one lead of the ohm meter on each connector, if it shows anything put 'ol' or open line, your thermostat should be good. Keep going until you find the faulty one. If all thermostats test good, try testing the element(s). the element is tested in the same manner as the thermostats, if it tests bad, replace it and enjoy doing laundry!!
