My kenmore 81492500 manual suggests if the drum is turning, but not heat, there are 1 of 2 house fuses are blown. Where are the fuses located in the dryer circuit?

the fuses are in your house fuse box,with a meter check to see if you have 220 to 240 volts or 110 to 120 to the black and white wire and 110 to 120 to the red and white wire where the cord connects to the dryer,if you do you'll have to check the heater,the high limit thermostat on the heater box,the thermal fuse on the blower wheel housing,you have to unplug the dryer to do this and pull at least one of the wires off the part you're time send the first three small black numbers on the model number with the 81492500,

Dryer runs but does not heat up. do not know how to change the heating element or where the fuse box is.

remove the back of dryer,the heater box and fuse are to your right,the fuse is on the left side top and you can remove the heating element by removing the 2 screws on the lower bottom of heater box-mike

Dryer is tumbling but not heating

if you remove the back you will see the heater box to your right,at the top of the box is the heater fuse,also the bottom half of the box is the heater coil,it come off just remove the 2 screws,if you have a meter you can test it if not take it off and look to see if you see a broken wire anywhere,your model number is inside the door-mike

My kenmore dryer stopped heating.

yes the price of fixing it is less then a new unit most of the time.
you might need new heating element or cut-off switch only.

I own an electric Kenmore Dryer model # 110.64622300. I replaced heat element, fuse and thermostat and still no heat. House fuses are fine.

did you check the high limit or cut off thermostat part number 3977393 located on the top of heater box,why did you change all those parts,do you have a meter if not get one,it would be cheaper to buy a meter instead of paying for parts that you didn't need,hope this helps

Dryer Temp control does not respond

your high temp thermostat is bad.remove back panel,look for the heater box(long and silver) look to the bottom left of it,the round looking thing is it,remove with nut driver,get make and model number,most times it behind the door or on the top back,go to your local appliance parts store,and tell them you need a high temp thermo.kit,it come with the high temp thermostat and the heater box fuse located on top left of heater box,hope this help-mike

If you go to, type in your model number in the Search menu, then look under the "Bulkhead" menu option, you will see an illustration of your dryer. You will need to remove the heater box cover (item #5) to get to the heating element. The element should slide out of the bottom of the heater box housing. Removing the housing from the dryer first makes it easier. Sometimes you may need a little muscle in getting the heater coil to come out.

Have you checked the thermal cut-out(TCO)/hi limit thermostat? This is item #1 in the drawing. If your dryer runs, but does not heat, this is normally the culprit. You are right to assume you could have a heating element problem, but the element tends to be more resilient. In my experience with electric dryers, the thermal cut-out tends to go bad first. It's easier to check and easier to replace as it is mounted on the outside of the heater box. Check for the following:

With the heater box STILL installed, the TCO will be a small component mounted at the top of the heater box housing. The hi-limit thermostat will be mounted at the bottom of the heater box housing next to the ceramic terminal of the heating element. With the dryer UNPLUGGED, disconnect the wires to the TCO and do a resistance reading. It should read 0 ohms if good. Do the same with the hi-limit thermostat. It should also read 0 ohms if good. Last of all perform a reading across the leads of the heating element with the wires unplugged. You should get a reading of 9 - 13 ohms if it is good. If you determine the TCO or hi-limit thermostat to be bad, it is HIGHLY recommended that you replace them BOTH at the same time. They are sold as a set (part #279769). Failure to replace both components could result in part failure. The part number for the heating element is 4391960. I hope this helps you.
