Kenmore 700 series dryer not heating

Mod- 110.67751600 Bought it yesterday bc it had only one owner, looks brand new still. get it home, set it up, do a load of laundry (LASTNIGHT) and it is still in my dryer wet! There is no heat. Ive checked the door switch, but was wondering if I have a 125/250 volt converter and this dryer calls for a 220 volt could that be an issue?

SOURCE: kenmore gas dryer not heating

GAS DRYER, NO HEAT. CHECK THE HEAT SETTING FIRST.
IS IT ON AIR FLUFF? I'M NOT BEING SMART, BUT YOU WOULD BE SURPRISED HOW MANY CALLS I TAKE THAT ARE ON AIR FLUFF. SECOND, LISTEN FOR A DISTINCT CLICK WHEN YOU TURN ON THE DRYER. IF YOU HEAR IT, LOOK IN THE INSPECTION HOLE ON THE FRONT OF THE DRYER, OR REMOVE THE TOE PLATE TO VIEW THE IGNITOR. IF THE IGNITOR GLOWS AND THEN CLICKS OFF BUT NO FLAME, YOU HAVE A BAD SOLENOID ON THE GAS VALVE. IF THE IGNITOR GLOWS, BUT NEVER CLICKS OFF, THE RADIANT SENSOR ATTACHED TO THE SIDE OF THE BURNER ASSEMBLY IS BAD.

IF YOU DON'T HEAR A DISTINCT CLICK WHEN YOU TURN ON THE DRYER, THE MOST LIKELY CAUSE IS THE THERMAL FUSE LOCATED ON THE BACK OF THE DRYER DOWN NEAR THE EXHAUST DUCT. IT IS A SMALL WHITE ITEM ATTACHED TO THE EXHAUST DUCT WITH TWO WIRES ATTACHED.

SOURCE: Kenmore 80 series quit heating after burning smell..

Any kind of lint or cobwebs on the element would cause a hot spot and fry the element or pop the limit that is mounted on top of the chamber. What your hubby soulda done is take the machine down and vacuum it out after sitting up so long. The fuse is not blown because it still runs so it must be the small guy pictured. It mount up top of the heat element chamber.ff8b5e7.jpg

SOURCE: Kenmore 70 Series Dryer not heating and not cutting off

I had an identical problem to yours this weekend with my Kenmore dryer. There were 2 problems.

1. Timer was broken. Does not advance to "OFF" position on timed dry, however it still works for auto-dry.

2. Thermal fuse was blown. Upon replacing, dryer heated up normally.

I believe when the timer broke, the dryer had kept running and blew the thermal fuse. On Sears' website, thermal fuse is $5.30, timer is roughly $80.

SOURCE: kenmore 700 series gas dryer .runs but no heat

There are several things that can cause this problem. It could be a defective hot surface igniter, inop thermostat, bad gas solenoid valves ect. You will first need to check and see if the hot surface igniter is coming on. You can verify this by turning on the dryer and then watching for the hot surface igniter to start glowing from the burner inspection hole at the bottom of the dryer(or remove the front/back panel if no window). It should glow very bright. Then after it is glowing to it's brightest point you should then hear a click(the sound of the gas valve solenoid opening) and the burner should come on. There are two gas valves in the system as a safety so you could have one valve that is bad. When the gas valves are charged they should be magnetized on the top of the valves. You can also give these valves a light tap to see if they are sticking. The gas valve solenoids and bad igniter are the most common cause of inop gas dryers. It could also be a bad thermostat or high limit cut off switch is open. Take a look at the dryer and let me know what you find. Also be careful doing any work on your dryer without the proper tools and knowledge. You could hurt yourself from electrical shock or explosion if you are not careful.

My kenmore 750 series gas dryer wont heat


Here is the problem I think you have. Weak aged solenoids.
If a dryer produces some heat then their are 2 scenarios. It is clogged with lint, or the gas operator solenoids are getting hot and failing.Here is 2 of my home made videos. One shows basically before and after clean up and the other shows how to check and replace them coils:

Hi.

Be sure that you have checked the thermal fuse. The part is tested using a multimeter set on Ohms (impedance). Remove the fuse from dryer and read impedance touching the fuse contacts with the two multimeter probes. If impedance is Ohm infinity (open), then the fuse is bad.

If the fuse is OK because tested good or replaced, then the problem is either one of the three thermostats located in the heating group, or the heating element. All parts are tested similarly to what described for the thermal fuse. If any of the parts read open (infinity), then the part is faulty. After finding the defective part remove all the lint from heating assembly and air duct. The lint causes overheating and blows thermostats, fuse or element.

Regards.

Series 700 dryer keeps blowing the heating element fuse it works fine for a while then blows the fuse


Make sure your air flow is good, if there is a restriction it will cause that , also set the dryer on lowest heat to make sure that's not a problem .

Kenmore Dryer-Mod.#11066514694-won't spin or heat


Hi,
This could be caused by an internal thermal overload switch. These usually have a limited life span in any appliance that uses heating elements. Try to locate the overload switch which usually looks like a small diode or resistor. You can determine if this is the cause by bridging the switch with a piece of wire, then trying the dryer once more.
Best wishes,

This is our 2nd new Maytag Performance Series 5000 gas dryer. Bought at Home Depot. Originally bought w/d and they just dumped the pair off. Had to hire a plumber to come and hook the gas up. Washer works...


No solution. In fact we just bought a new 5000 dryer and it did 4 loads before DYING. Will not dry at all and machine definitely is turned on. Currently struggling to get it replaced.
