Question about Kenmore 63942 Dryer
I have an Electric Kenmore Dryer 110.66112501 It will not heat up nor will the timer shut off. HELP!!!! How can I fix it. It happen all at once. No warning signs.
The timer naturally won't shut off till the sensors inside the drum no longer get a capacitance reading when the clothes are completely dry. The moisture control board relays power to the timer motor when it is sure the clothes is dry. The heating element could be broken.Unplug the dryer. Take the back off. Get the heater off and take a look at it. Check your vent pipe, if it has lint in it then your high limit is probably open. The fuse ain't broken because the dryer still runs. Both parts in the kit need to be replaced. because the big one is supposed to shut down at 250F the little one(high limit) mounts in the upper heater housing and gives up the ghost when the temp reachs 300F. The fuse mounted on the blower housing is rated to die at 350F. It is tied into the door safety switch, when it dies it is the same as if you opened the door. The dryer will not run. BTW: if you ain't got the $ to get a new limit you can reset it by banging it on the floor in a fit of rage. LOL

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.
