Question about Kenmore Dryers
I have a Kenmore 27" Laudry Center. Long story short. Dryer was making a metal on metal sound. My son would shake the whole unit to get it to stop and now, there is not heat but it still tumbles. It is electric so I am thinking he may have jarred one of the two fuses loose but I have no idea where the fuses are located and I have the top and one of the side panels off already. Help please.
Sounds like a tub wheel that the drum runs on may be bad ,youll have to take the front off and look,check for a burnt wire at the heating element or the heating element itself

Before ripping into the dryer, with the dryer running, check the vent outside. There should be a rather strong air flow. I'll bet you have little or maybe no air flow. Check behind the dryer to make sure you don't have squished flex duct. If you have flex pipe, try running the dryer for a few minutes with the dryer pulled out into the room to stretch the vent out, and check outside airflow again. Try to eliminate all or as much of the flex stuff as you can, replacing it with aluminum dryer vent pipe. (tape joints with foil duct tape) Clean out remaining dryer vent. (there are special brushes you can buy to clean out vents, but they really only work on ridgid pipe.)

SOURCE: no heat from my tumble dryer
Presumably the motor and fan are working.
Check filter, and if it is vented with a hose, make sure it is not blocked with fluff. if all seems to be o/k, then the heating element is probably faulty.
Please leave good feedback if this helps with your problem

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

Hello Friend, Your problem is very simple to fix. You need a thermal fuse, very simple and affordable to replace. To replace the thermal fuse just remove back cover of dryer and look down where the air blows out. Now, just to the left where all the wires are you will see a white plastic part with two wires plugged into it. This part is called a thermal fuse. Just remove these wires and replace the thermal fuse. Your dryer will run like new. Happy to help, Tim.

or bad solonoids on your gas vale
check your lint filter
and exhaust outside to be clear of cloggs with good airflow while running
