My kenmore dryer model#110.61202013 wont heat up


ELECTRIC Dryer no heat or little heat, or shuts down to fast:

Check your venting and lint basket. Check blower for lint build up and blower wheel obstruction., test by trying to turn the wheel manually by hand (should be easy) May have to remove cabinet or front/back plate to get to it)

Next check the heating element itself with a meter for continuity OHMS CLOSED CIRCUIT. If not its defective.

Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage. 220 because if u only get half or 110 volts you will be able to run the machine which uses only 110 to run motor but not the heater which uses a full 220,

Check the thermal cut off, the cycling and the hi limit thermostats.
For continuity or OHMS. If no ohms or resistance they need replacement.

Lastly check your moister sensor. ( located inside the dryer door usually) Especially if machine seems to shut down early and clothes are still wet.
Test with a meter at room temperature and it should show continuity.
A failed moisture sensor will affect the dryer run time in the automatic moisture sensing cycle but it will not affect the heating

Kenmore 68731 model 86873100 setting the drying to any of the drying methods, the dial does not move to automatically turn off the dryer.


You have a bad timer motor To verify you will get an ohm meter and remove the wires to the motor.

Check between the motor wires fer continuity. If you have continuity then the next test will verify if the gears are stripped on the motor. Apply power to the timer motor and see if it advances on its own. From looking at your model number I see nothing unusual about the timer.
to get to the[parts list I did 110.36873100. 110 is a the large prefix which ID's the dryer as being a whirlpool model. All kenmores ain't Whirlpool.

Dryer wont start but the timer cliicks frigdiare dryer


It sounds like the thermal fuse. Without knowing model number I cant tell you exactly. Depending on how you access it. Near the blower housing you will see a little white sliver fuse ot a round fuse with two wires running to it. The one next to it has 4 wires running to it. Disconnect power before opening the dryer... Take a meter and see if it has continuity. If not its bad. Anything further please feel free to reply.

Kenmore dryer 70 series trips the 30 amp breaker


try running the dryer on air fluff so no power is going to the heater.if it runs you probably have a shorted heat element,unplug the dryer and check it with a meter,next time send model number and let me know what you find

Kenmore gas dryer no heat . 90 series model 110.70902990 have power, did vacum lint from access panel@ FRONT


unplug the dryer,remove the lint filter,take off the bottom panel and remove the duct that the lint filter slides into,clean the duct out,while you have the duct off on top and to the right of the blower wheel housing you'll see a 3390719 thermal fuse,remove one of the wires and check it with your meter to see if it's good,most of the time if the dryer hasn't been cleaned out the fuse will blow,the dryer runs to hot and the fuse is a safety so you don't have a fire and so the dryer doesn't run hotter than it should. vac out the inside of dryer and if you have a shop vac it blows on the other side,blow off the motor and blow the lint from the back forwards so you don't have to remove the drum,next you have to clean out the vent line,if it's a long run from the back of dryer to the outside flapper i use a leaf blower to blow out the line,you should clean the dryer once a year,if the fuse is good you need to check with your meter the ignitor,the sensor and the gas coils to see what's bad,if you need anymore help let me know,good luck,when you're reading anything out with the meter make sure you remove at least one of the wires or you'll get a false reading

I have kenmore dryer model no. 417 and its not drying the clothes, its running but not heating, I checked the manual it said something about changing a fuse - can you give me more info on doing this, type...


Unplug
Check your exhuast vent, if it is buily up with lint, clean or replace.
Next remove the wires from the heating element, test with a meter for a complete circuit.
Then remove wires from thermal fuse and test with meter.
Then repeat for any additional themal fuses, should be two total but some units have three,
If one thermal is bad replace both.

My kenmore elite 6942 won't power on. thoughts?


make sure your getting power to the dryer?also check that the motor is getting power,if it is and dryer won't start you could have a bad motor,you have to get in there with a meter and check it out,check the door switch,move the paddle you should here a click when you push it in and out,if not change it,also check the thermal fuse located on the blower wheel housing,you have to send more info,there's so many reasons why it doesn't start get a meter and read it out,send model number next time

Kenmore electric dryer model number 86860100 dryer not heating.....cleaned out vents not the problem....everything else seems to work.. I had seen in the past it glow in back of the dryer so I turned out...


hello there:
Testing with an ohm meter checking on a dryer....
These are the places that pass voltage to the heater elements on an electric dryer. In order to check a dryer for no heat, here is a list of places to check. Remember to always unplug the appliance before starting testing with an ohm meter. Always remove wires from the part you are testing with an ohm meter ( write down what goes where first before removing any wires ).
Meter testing and usage tips.
1. Power supply-check power supply at terminal block where cord enters the dryer. Should read 240V. If you read 240V here, tested with a volt meter, unplug dryer and test components with ohm meter.
2. Thermostats-Cycle and safety thermostats-read them with an ohm meter. Should show continuity . How common thermostats work.
3.Timer-The timer has a set of contacts that pass voltage to the heaters. If you can not determine by wiring picture what they are, check across the two terminals with the largest wires on them. The heater wires are almost twice as large as the others. You should read continuity with timer in heat mode.
4. Thermal fuses-In recent years the makers of dryers are using thermal fuses to let you know something is wrong with your dryer. They are generally non resetting and have to be replaced. The thermal fuses are located on the heater element housing and should read continuity if read with an ohm meter. Most blown thermal fuses are the result of vent/air flow problems or a grounded heating element.
5. Selector Switches-Read the wiring picture and determine which switch is closed. You should read continuity across closed switches.
6. Safety Switch on Motor-There is a safety switch on motor to insure that heaters can not come on unless motor is running. It is normally open when the motor is idle/not running, and closes when motor runs. In order to check with an ohm meter, remove the two large wires on motor switch and make them electrically safe. Tape them. Plug the dryer in and start motor. Check continuity across the terminals on the motor switch you removed the heavy wires from. If it is ok you should read continuity. Remember that the smaller wires in a dryer carry the 120V and the large wires carry 240V. There is no voltage on these two terminals with wires removed. It is ok to test with ohm meter.
7. Heat elements-Test heater element with an ohm meter. You will read continuity across a good element 8-12 OHMS

Dryer wont run any ideas?


It has got to be the door switch. The fuse won't stop this appliance from running.

Dryer wont run


Check the door switch for continuity.
Check the thermal fuse on the heat canister for continuity.
No continuity, bad part.
