SOURCE: heating element for kenmore dryer won't turn on

Hi, I have an 11yr old 80 series elec. dryer and just fixed the same problem. On the heater element is a thermostat with 2 wires and above that about 14" is another piece with 2 wires. I had to replace the top one. They sell them together in a kit called Thermal cut off kit. Sears sell it for 25.49 look up part number 279816 or 3399848 again these numbers are for my dryer but you can look them up on the sears parts web site. If you have a sears service center near by they let me buy the parts to see which one it was and then return the ones I didn't need. I hope this helps.Good luck

SOURCE: I have the mount for a Kenmore 80 series dryer

Remove the panel from the rear of this drier. You will see the contained heating unit there with wires hooked to it.
First unhook these wires, noting the position they are pluged in so to put them back the same
Then you will see one screw at the top with a "bracket" holding the top of the elemant assembly on. Remove this screw and lift up on the element assembly and it will just fall out.
Reinstall the new assembly in the same manor as you removed the old one.

I need a parts diagram to replace the right front surface heating element of a Kenmore range, Model 629-45775


Does the element have continuity? if so, it will be the element switch that needs replacement... Generally, the radiant element will be held on by two screws and a steel plate, note the wiring before removing the old part. Definitely remove power to the machine before doing anything inside of it... Kenmore Range Stove Oven Surface Element Switch WP7403P239 60

No heat in kenmore series 80, model 85040


hello there:
here is some troubleshooting ideas for you to help
A dryer sometimes won't heat or heats too slowly because of a variety of reasons. By following the guidelines below, you can inspect the heating elements on a gas or electric dryer to pinpoint the source of the problem.
Electric heating elements, found in electric dryers, are self-contained units located in the back of the dryer. A defective heating element is frequently the source of no-heat or drying problems. Remove the back service panel to gain access to the elements.
The heating elements are located inside the heater ducts. If you think a heating element is faulty
