Question about Kenmore 98702 Stacked Washer/Dryer
I have a kenmore stacked washer drier electric. Everything works except the drier does not get the hot air/heat. I opened the back. The heating element seems to be okay, it is not burnt or broken.
There is a white fuse (sometimes called a limit) in the back of the unit. It is about 1/2" wide and about 2" long and it has connected by two clips and terminals. Replace this and you should have heat. It usually blows when there is too high of a build-up of lint in the unit. Before you put it back together, clean all the lint out of it including behind the lint trap.

In order to test the element, you will need an ohm meter. It should test at 8 - 12 ohms. If it is not the element, it could be any of you other thermostats, here's a rundown: thermal fuse. It is white and about an inch and a half long and had two wires going into it. Thermal cuttoffs, one is right next to the element, and the other is further above the element. If one of these is bad, you will need to replace them both. the last is the thermostat with heat anticipator. this thermostat will have four wires going into it and is located right next to your thermal fuse. To test any of these thermostats unplug the wires leading to them and test each lead with your ohm meter, if you have steady numbers or 'countdown' it is fine, move on to the next. once you reach one that reads 'ol' or 'open line' that is the thermostat that is bad. Good luck and happy fixin'!
