Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
Kenmore stacked washer/dryer. Model: 110 88752793 which is, I believe a 2003 manufacture. Dryer will not heat. I've checked both T-stats for continuity (when cold which is all I've got) and they seem fine. NO LINT anywhere. I blew what was there out and vacuumed the rest. All circuits hot. DO NOT SEE A THERMAL FUSE TO TEST ON THIS MODEL. So the temp selector knob is left? Seems unlikely? HELP!
Have thermistor Part 3404154 on desk. (Has many other numbers on its surface as well as red slashed lines.) Have repeatedly tested it -- produces 0 reading on ohm meter/continuity as it should.

The heating element have got old and brittle over time and finally gave up the ghost. But it is not always the element. It could be one of the safety Hi-limits have blown. All parts of the dryer will have continuity if its working properly. Test for continuity by using a meter set on Ohms,or use a poor man's meter. You can make your own poor man's meter by using an ordinary flashlight . Break the circuit in the flashlight and add a couple of wires to it so that you can make the light come on in the flashlight, that's right hot wire that flashlight. When the bulb lights up you have a circuit! You now have a poor man's meter. The next step is to check each little gizmo on the dryer that the wires attach to. All the limits attached to the side of the heat element, the door switch (when door is closed) etc.should have continuity (closed circuit)(the light should come on in the poor man's meter) If you come across an thing near the blower housing with 2 wires attached to it, that is a thermal limit, a safety or a control thermostat (So as not to get a false circuit you need to remove one of the wires to each thing you check) Look for lint buildup or blocked vent going out the house. If everything is good and you have paid the electric bill, then the timer could be bad.

Hi, this is a very common problem. Usually the issue is with the water valve or the "mixing valve" where your hot and cold water fill hoses connect to the back of the unit is the valve. You will need your model number to get the right part though. You can go to apdepot.com to find the part number for your machine.

If you are having problems with your
gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor
goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working
you dryer is gas check out this gas
If you have an electric dryer, you can
have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to
out this electric
