Question about Kenmore 62822 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Kenmore Dryer heats in all settings.

I have a Kenmore Elite electric dryer, model no. 110.60932990. I am beginning to understand that "Elite" is a code word for "lemon." If I turn the heat selector to any setting (including "air fluff") it runs hot, seemingly at the same temperature. I understand that 110 volts runs constantly to the heating element, but it does not get hot until you put it on a setting and hit the start button. I have tried cleaning the air vent (even taking the hose loose), replacing the thermistor and pulling my hair--nothing seems to work!

Can anyone help me; I can't afford a service call until my economic stimulance package comes. Thanks.

You may have a bad thermostat.

You could take a chance and replace it and save a service call, but without trouble shooting skills, it's a guess as to what could be wrong.

You can get the stat from SearsPartsDirect.com

Dryer working but no heat


The manual says that two circuit breakers used,and that the dryer
can spin but no heat if one of them tripped, check your panel and see
if any breakers are tripped. If this was the problem,have an electrician
check the circuit.
