Question about Kenmore 62602 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

How do you get to the heating element of a Kenmore Elite (electric) clothes dryer? I tried to open it from the top & back but that wasn't right. I alsol looked underneath the unit and didn't see an opening. The only place left is in the front at the bottom of the machine just under the door but I didn't want to force it off for fear that I might break something.

How to replace a heating element on a Kenmore Elite Oasis ST dryer


Sounds like you need to replace the timer one the dryer not the element but to make sure I would do a little trouble shooting to rule out the element or heating coil turn on dryer cycle like normal for about 30 seconds then open the door to feel for heat if you do feel heat its your cycle/timer knob if you don't feel heat then it's the coil or element witch are the same also first always check your lint trap and ducts going outside the dryer make sure you have proper airflow through ducts vents. clogged vents ducts ect. Cause over heating of element coil causing a safety fuse to shut down heating coil/element but will not stop cycle also moisture censors detect moisture causing cycle to continue on hope this helps.

Dryer does not heat correctly code F31


The thermostat which is a round 2 wire control on the blower box on the back of the dryer controls the heat on all dryers. always shut off power when checking any electrical appliance. Clothes dryers are wired with 2 voltages, The 240 volt supply is for the heating element only, while the 120 volt supply gives power to the timer and motor that spins the drum and powers any lights and switches. If the heating element is coming on, try replacing the thermostat. As always unplug the dryer first.

I have a Kenmore Elite HE3 model 11094834200 it heats up for about 5 minutes and than stops heating. I replaced the thermistor thinking that was the problem but it wasn't. If I try re starting t


Number 34 is the sensor strips located on the rear bulkhead inside the dryer. Clean them thoroughly with Windex or 409. Dryer sheets build a wax buffer on them sensors that moisture cannot penetrate. If no wetness is detected the control shuts her down thinking them clothes is did. Either that or you forgot to reconnect the sensor wire when puttin her back together Kimosabe.

My Kenmore elite electric dryer will not heat. I


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. No Heat issue in an electric dryer is usually caused due to three things mainly: Thermal Fuse, Wiring Harness and/or Heating Element. Start with checking the Thermal Fuse which is mounted inside the back cover panel to the exhaust duct and is mounted in white plastic housing. If that’s fine then the Heating Element should be checked. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Kenmore elite , no heat


Check the following to address this issue.




1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses. An electric dryer uses two circuit breakers or fuses, and if only one of two is tripped or blown, the dryer might still run but not heat. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

2. Heating element
A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

If this is a Kenmore Elite front loader, taking the back off isn't going to tell you much. The heating element is inside the dryer under the drum on the right hand side. More than likely you have an accumulation of lint on the heating element housing and its beginning to smolder. Running the dryer on low will not change the fact that you have lint in close proximity to a glowing element. It will still burn. Here is a link you can look at that gives you some advice on dryers:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385301-thorough_dryer_advice

You will need to unplug the dryer and remove the lower panel under the door to gain access to the heating circuits. If you have lint backing up into the dryer, you need to investigate why. If its been a while since you've inspected your dryer ventilation ducting, it would probably be a good idea to do so. Everything is in the link I provided for you. I hope this helps.

PS Conitued running of a dryer in this condition can cause the heating circuits to overheat and fail and/or cause a fire.
