Question about Kenmore 63942 Dryer

1 Answer

Heating element and/or replacement bulb

My Kenmore 70 series Dryer does not heat on the setting "Normal/permanent press Medium High"; however it does heat on the "Cotton High" setting. Also the interior light bulb has burned out. Does the burning out of the light bulb have anything to do with my problem, and where can I get the 120 volt, 10 watt replacement bulb.

No light bulbs on its own line and routs through the door switch as for the heat check your temp select button or your thermostst in the control panel should be a tech sheet with specs but be sure to put it back when your done

My Kenmore series 70 electric dryer isn't heating. Replace element, thermostats, ?


a heating element would be a likely cause however before you replace the element you should check to make sure that it is bad by using an ohm meter to check the element for continuity. if you take the element out of the machine you can usually visualy inspect it and see the broken wire.

Dry is not heating.


Hi, Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.
Also on many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)

Kenmore series 70 dryer will not heat up replaced heating element thermostats check ok with ohm meter


If heating element was replaced and still no heat, Then what I would do is test the voltage current in the wiring and see if there is actually power to the element.

All parts to make dryer heat are:
heating element
thermal fuse
thermostat
timer

any one of these units can be faulty
