Old Kenmore Dryer Stopped Blowing Heat

One day we had put a load of towels in the dryer and the next morning went to use them and they were still extremely wet. After running them again and still no success, I realized that it wasn't blowing any heat out. Any suggestions?

    It's an old, electric dryer to clarify. Someone mentioned that the heating element is out or the limit switches are out. Are those hard to replace? Are those expensive to replace?

I have a Kenmore dryer model # MC0329088 that is 10-11 years old that all of a sudden stopped blowing hot air


If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....

If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

check out this electric no heat tip...

Fuse blowing

Your exhaust vent is blocked.
Timed dry is High heat.
Permanent press is a medium heat and intermittent.
The dryer does not get as hot as often in Permanent press mode. Therefore the fuse does not reach critacal and blow.
Remove the vent at the rear of the dryer and run a timed load.
If it dries correctly, repair your vent blockage.
If not, repost and I will lead you to the next step.

Dryer won't Start

the problem might be the start switch itself. if the switch is going bad it could have either a carbon buildup on the contacs preventing it from starting (unlikely) or the contacs are wearing out and it is more hit or miss if it will start. as time goes on the problem will get wose
