Who sale at elements for this dryer


You'll need the model number off your dryer to find the correct heating element. You can search online using the model number or find a local appliance repair parts store.

WHY WOULD IT NOT BE HEATING UP


This means your heating element has burnt out. Usually they consist of a coil, much like you can see on a hair dryer, in line with the air intake. Most common cause is the coil burning out due to excess lint and severing itself. When the coil breaks electricity cant travel from positive to negative so the coil stops heating up. Look online, try sears, type in your model number followed by - heating element - . You should be able to find your model number in the manual or by searching the name of the dryer. If you get the heating element and pay someone to install it, you should not have to pay more then getting a new dryer.

Dryer not heating


Hello there and welcome to fixya

Here are the most common things that will need to be checked with a meter to ensure there is continuity on these parts no continuity means that the part is bad and needs replacement ok?

Thermal Fuse

If the dryer doesn't heat, but the drum turns, check the thermal fuse(s). The thermal fuse protects the dryer from overheating and helps to prevent fires. If the thermal fuse is blown, it will have to be replaced.

Gas Valve Solenoid

The gas valve has two or more electric solenoids which open the valve to let the gas flow into the burner assembly. If the dryer doesn't heat one or more of the solenoids may be defective. If the igniter glows for 90 seconds but the burner flame doesn't light, replace these coils as a set.

Dryer Igniter

If the dryer doesn't heat, the igniter might be burned out. Check the igniter for continuity with an ohm meter. Dryer igniters burn out over time, similar to a light bulb.

Flame Sensor

Gas dryers have a flame sensor to detect the heat given off by the flame. If the dryer doesn't heat, the flame sensor might be defective. Check the flame sensor for continuity. This is not as common as a burned out igniter or thermal fuse.

Not heating


There are a few things that can cause the dryer to not heat there is a one time thermal fuse that can blow causing the heating element to not function . one cause of this thermal fuse to blow (in this case heat) would be the lint in the dryer vent tube it clogs the tube then the heat builds up by the heating element and blows the resistor this is very common . One other problem that can occur is the heating element could get burnt out and short out .after some years of use the wire come out of its normal shape and move around and eventually touch the side of the metal housing causing the element to open or break. you can check out this site www.repairclinic.com and put in your model number and find the thermal fuse kit should cost around 22$ the heating element can be from 60 -180$ depending on what type of dryer you have

How do i find the part number for a new heating element


First find the Mfr/Model number of your Dryer, and then phone your favorite local
major appliance parts store and ask them what's their price and part number for a
replacement heating element for your Dryer. Then you have 1 price/pert number for
one replacement heating element (from one Mfr that may not be the manufacturer of
the dryer itself). Phone another major appliance part store, and ask them the same
question, and you'll have another price/part number, pick the one you like best.
Then, post another question on FixYa, about how to install it - I (or you) may
then hunt down YouTube videos on how to install a Dryer Heating Element.

How to replace the heating element


your problem could be in the heating element.

if it heats but takes along time then check your venting.

if no heat then it oculd be the element, thermostats, possibly thermal fuse..

the sides and back are one piece, so u will have to go through the front by removing the front assembly . you can go to sears.com and go to the parts and service far upper right and parts section, and enter your model number to get a breakdown on this model and get part numbers...I would check those parts with a meter first for continutiy before buying that heating element as most people cant take returns on electrical parts,, hope this helps

DRYER HEATING ELEMENT


Kenmore dryers are manufactured by Whirlpool. In many cases the part numbers are identical between model numbers. Look at the dimensions of the heating element and compare part numbers. Chances are, the parts are identical.

Not heating up


This looks like it is an older model. The normal place I check for parts doesn't stock the heating element. I found an alternative place but the part is $90.

The element is in the large round area that surrounds the drum assembly. Here's a diagram. The heating element is part number 512. The line doesn't reach all the way there but I think the element is the two dark rings inside the housing. Here the page with the parts listing. You'll note that the model number is the same but the brand is GE. GE makes hotpoint.
