SOURCE: Kenmore 96272100 won't spin, but heat comes on....

Broken belt most likely. I looked at your model number and your belt number is 341241. Your actual model number with prefix is:
110.96272100When ordering parts you always add the 110. Anyway to replace the belt you first remove the filter. Then you must remove the 2 screws that hold the filter housing to the top because you gotta raise the top. To raise it you grab the dryers back side right behind each hinge and pull the whole top forward a bit while lifting on the front of the top to release the front portion and rotate it to the back. Then you will need a small screwdriver to assist in unplugging the door switch. Then remove 2 screw holding the front on and LIFT up the front to keep from damaging the bottom clips which are flimsy. Once the front is out of your way get the drum out and inspect the rollers. You can lube them with zoomspout oil, it is safe for appliances.

How do you replace the bottom heating element


Turn off power to oven, remove two screws on heating element mount, pull heating element from wall of oven, remove two screws connecting electric leads to heating element.

To install new element, reverse steps. Make sure screws connecting heating element to wires are very tight -- otherwise they will arc.

Removing oven element to install new one


Turn power off at service panel (220 volt circuit breaker). Remove screws from heating element mount on wall of oven. Pull heating element from wall of oven far enough out to see the where the wires/lugs are screwed to the heating element leads. Remove these screws. Replace element. Make sure screws on heating element lugs/leads are tight -- if not tight, arcing will occur.

How do i change the heating element.


The heating element is accessible through the lower front access panel. Disconnect power to the dryer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.

Remove the two screws attaching the bottom of the lower front access panel to the cabinet then slide the panel down then off the cabinet. The heating element can now be accessed and repalced.

Remove the screws securing the heating element to the heater box then pull down the heating element to remove it from the heater box.

Disconnect and label the wires for the heating element and the components. Remove the components from the old heating element then transfer it to the new heating element.

Slide the new heating element up into the heater box and secure it in place. Align the slots on the top of the lower front access panel with the locating tabs on the front access panel then slide it into position and secure the bottom of the lower front access panel to the cabinet.
