Question about Dryers

Open Question

Kenmore HE3t Elite Electric Dryer does not heat up.

I checked the voltage at back panel and got 120V and 240 V reading. I then checked the heating element and got 10 ohm reading. Then I checked both the Thermal Cut-Out and Hi-Limit Thermostat and got bot reading of 0.01 to 0.1 ohm. I also checked the vent pipe, it all clean. I set the operation to manual Hi Temp drying for 5 minutes and checked the air blew out of vent pipe but got only cool (room-temperature) air, not hot . Please help!

    Thanks Dan, but my model 110-82822101 does not have a rotary timer. However I did follow the "Tech sheet" (the one they stuck inside, at top of the dryer) to replace the thermistor and it worked for exactly 1 week, then it have the same problem as before.

If all of the components are reading ok then you need a timer. Touch your 2 leads together. 0 ohms rght. That means you have a complete circuit.If you get the 0 reading then the element must be otay. Bad timer. Take that fancy meater of yours and atttach one of them leads to the timer leg marked RH. Yank the wire off the terminal beore you test. Move the timer around. You should get the famous 0 reading along the way. If you don't then that means you have the bad timer.

GEW9200 electric dryer turns fine but won't heat up. I tested the thermal fuse, thermostat, heating coil and they are fine. What am I missing?

If you have 240 VAC to the dryer, the control likely has a faulty relay for the heater. Provided all the thermal fuses (especially the one on the side of the element can) are good and the voltage supply is good, the control will likely need to be replaced and is available below.

My Kenmore elite electric dryer will not heat. I


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.

Heating element is not working

I would say it could be one of two things. The heating elements could be bad, not likely though as the were working when the dryer was reset. You may want to try changing your circuit breaker, as your heating elements work off of the 2 phase 240 voltage while everything else in the dryer works off 120V. Check the voltage on each phase of the breaker in your electric panel see if your putting out the full 110-120V per phase.

Dryer has power but will not start. tested wall outlet and dryer plug and both have power. blower motor and heating element both read 120v ac.

Assuming this is a full size 240v dryer (you never said what it is) you should have 240 volts across the two angled prongs in your receptacle (L1 and L2). 120v across either ONE angled prong to the "L" shaped prong (neutral).
If it a 120v dryer your voltages are alright.
It sounds like the door switch is open.

No heat


The issue you are facing is due to the thermal fuse. If the thermal fuse is the problem, the dryer wouldn’t run.

First of all verify the voltage for the dryer by using multi-meter to measure the voltage at the dryer outlet to make sure you have 240v because the dryer motor only needs 120v supplied by one of the lines to run. But the heating elements, on the other hand, need 240v supplied by both lines to get hot.

If the voltage is ok, then the most likely bad parts are given below. As always, you should use your meter and the tech sheet supplied with your dryer (hidden inside the control panel) to verify:

1. Even Heat Board

2. Heater Relay

3. Thermostat

4. Sensor

You need to check and replaced the bad parts to resolve the issue you are facing with.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Kenmore electric dryer model# 66702692 66702 runs but no heat

Hi soccerref209

This could be caused by a number of things. The first thing to check is that you have 240 v
, the dryer will run with 120v but the element need 240v to heat. It could be the element its self or a thermal fuse. hope this helps.
