Check the voltage at the terminal block where the cord hooks up for 220 volts.
Remove the rear panel and check the thermal fuse located on the upper portion of the heat canister.
Check the Hi-limit thermostat on the bottom portion of the heat canister.
Check all the wires for a burned or loose wire.
Check continuity of the heating element.

Kenmore 100.85081400 no heat

check the thermal fuse on the blower housing if its open some units wont heat,also check the heating element if heated electrically,or the ignitor on gas fired units,by the number you provided i believe you meant its a 110.85081400 instead of the 100.85081400 (and is electrically heated) you provided which is produced by whirlpool for sears (kenmore) also there is a control board located inside behind the control panel that may be a culprit,but check the first two things i suggested at the top

Hello< My dryer is spinning no

The problem when the dryer runs but doesn't heat is usually caused by a failed high-limit thermostat and a blown thermal cut-off both located on the heater housing. Verify this by bypassing both parts for troubleshooting purposes then running the dryer.

Disconnect power then remove the screws attaching the bottom front panel to the bottom flange of the cabinet. Slide the panel down and off the cabinet to access the heater housing.

Remove the hex-head screw from the heater shield and remove the shield.

Disconnect the red wire from the thermal cut-off and the red/white stripe wire from the heater. Connect the red wire disconnected from the thermal cut-off to the heater terminal where the red/white stripe wire is disconnected from.

Reconnect power then start the dryer. The problem is indeed with the two bypassed components if the dryer heats up. Replace both the thermal cut-off and the high-limit thermostat and it should solve the heating problem. Do not use the dryer with those parts bypassed due to high risk of fire hazards. Let us know should you need further advice.

AIr does not heat up...changed the heating element and still no hot air. I have a Kenmore 90 series model#66912690..perhaps it is the thermostat? Where and how would I trouble shoot for that?

very possible thats a thermo has gone bad, with a power meter you can check for continuity threw the thermostats located atopp and below the heater itself.

Kenmore 90 Series ~ Model # 66912690 Electric Dryer, spins but does NOT heat, any suggestions what the problem could be?

The following link explains the dryer no heat problem:

Make sure you perform all component checks with the dryer UNPLUGGED. Dangerous voltages are still present inside a dryer even with the unit turned off.

Pay particular attention to the paragraph that discusses proper dryer ventilation. Most dryer heat related problems are attributed to poor ventilation that leads to dryer overheating to the point of failure. If you can't remember the last time you had your ventilation checked or cleaned, I would recommend you do so before replacing any failed components. Failure to do so may result in undesired drying results and premature failure of any components you have replaced.

The most common cause of dryer heat failure is a blown thermal cut-out (TCO). This component acts as a fuse and will blow when an overheat condition occurs. If it is determined that the TCO is bad, it is strongly recommended that you replace the hi-limit thermostat at the same time. Failure to do so may result in premature failure of replaced components. In many cases, the manufacturer sells these parts as a set (more cost effective to purchase this way, too). Both these components are located on the heater box adjacent to the heating element.

To access, remove the lower panel under the dryer door. This is accomplished by inserting a putty knife along the seam at the top of the panel about two inches in from each side. There is a retaining clip that needs to be depressed to release the panel. With the panel removed, the heating circuits are located on the right hand side under the drum. You can view drawings of your dryer at by entering your model number. Use model number "110.66912690" for your search criteria. The heating circuits are listed under the "Bulkhead" heading. The heating element is listed as item number 14. The thermal cut-out is listed as item 47 and the hi-limit thermostat is item 48. NOTE: You can find the TCO and hi-limit thermostat sold as a set at as part number AP3094224 (Your Kenmore dryer is manufactured by Whirlpool). This could save you some $ if one of these components is your problem.

If you have questions along the way, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Kenmore dryer starts, then stops. Heated motor smell

First CLEAN out the lint, not just in the mesh screen, but also by opening up the dryer to check for lint around the motor, and the manifold that connects from the drum to the outlet tube. Open up the manifold, carefully, remove lint, and REPLACE the heat sensor/temperature thermocouple that is on the outside, and has a protruding point into the manifold ($20 or less). If the drum spins when you start the cycle, it is NOT the motor! The burning smell is probably LINT that stuffed into the outlet pipe and manifold.
I have cleaned the outlet tube, manifold, and areas under/around the drum for my dryer, and my rental properties and "fixed" the problem. If it still turns off, then get the correct replacement sensors and replace them. DO NOT open the heating element. The wires inside are fragile.
