The thermal overload fuse is probably bad. It is located under the top of the dryer near or at the drum. Bypass it to see if that is it. Next area to look at is the element. It may have just went out.

Dryer doesn't put out any heat, but it does run.


Check the schematic, it should be on the back of the machine. You'll see that the heat circuit probably goes thru the switch on the motor. Use a multimeter to check continuity thru the element, the heat sensors, and the timer. You can do most with the machine unplugged. If you're familiar with checking live circuits, just keep in mind that 220 comes from both ways and meets in the middle, where the load is: so be very careful.

Dryer will not start


based on your description, i would suggest two possibilities. the first....check the door switch
two....check the blower housing sensor (a fuse like component located at the lower rear of the dryer).. it is a small , slim part about an 1 1/4 inches long and about 3/8 ths inches wide. it has a wire connection at both ends.
a quick test for both components mentioned would be to pull the wires off and temporarily connect them together. (be sure to not let them touch anything else). then try to operate the unit.
hope this helps...........................jay

Kenmore HE4 Dryer


rmcfarland I am going to make an assumption. You are using the Automatic cycle. If so then this is wet load detection. Open the dryer door and at the bottom on the front you will see 2 metal bars. This is you moisture sensor. Clean that sensor with a mult purpose cleaner. If detergent and fabric softner sheets build up a coating on this sensor, the control will think you put in a dry load and shut down the dryer. Hope this helps.
