Question about Kenmore Dryers

1 Answer

Dryer doesn't put out any heat, but it does run.

Kenmore household front loading clothes dryer
Model no. 110.64812200
Serial no. MP2815385
Type DWSRELE2406028CV54

This dryer runs fine, but just doesn't put out any heat. Any answers or suggestions. I'm going to open it up and look at it tomorrow. What should I be looking for? Is it a heating element, fuse, relay, etc.?

Thanks in advance.

Check the schematic, it should be on the back of the machine. You'll see that the heat circuit probably goes thru the switch on the motor. Use a multimeter to check continuity thru the element, the heat sensors, and the timer. You can do most with the machine unplugged. If you're familiar with checking live circuits, just keep in mind that 220 comes from both ways and meets in the middle, where the load is: so be very careful.

My LG front loading dryer doesn't dry well


Check the exhaust vent when running and be sure there is a good flow of air. You may have to clean the exhaust pipes all the way through. Dryers require a good flow of air for proper operation.

Kenmore dryer will only work on no heat cycle...any other heat cycle will give pf code. md number 417.84092500


The Kenmore H5T is an electric clothes dryer meant for residential use and manufactured by the Kenmore Company, which manufactures a wide variety of appliances for the home, including refrigerators, dishwashers, microwaves, stoves, and clothes washers and dryers. While most Kenmore clothes dryers work well with only basic care and maintenance, certain problems, such as the dryer not heating, occasionally occur. Troubleshooting this issue may solve the problem without the help of a service technician.
instruction
  • Ensure that the dryer is properly connected to a working grounded power supply. Confirm that the power cord is plugged firmly into the dryer and the power outlet. Reset household fuses or circuit breakers if necessary.
  • 2 Remove the lint screen from the bottom front of the dryer. Pull off all lint so that the filter screen is clean, and replace the lint screen in the dryer.
  • Run the dryer for 5 minutes on a normal cycle and hold your hand under the outside exhaust hood to feel for air movement. If there is no air movement, turn off the dryer and unplug the unit. Disconnect the exhaust vent and clean out any possible obstructions, such as excess lint. Reconnect and confirm that the vent is not kinked or crushed and preventing proper heated air flow.
  • Ensure the dryer is not in a room or outside with ambient temperatures below 45 degrees Fahrenheit. The dryer will be unable to heat properly if the ambient temperature is too low.
  • Avoid overloading the dryer with too many clothes, which will limit proper heat and air flow in the dryer. Make sure the dryer is not set on an "Air Only" dry cycle, which does not provide heat.
  • Contact an authorized service technician if the preceding steps do not resolve the problem.

    Kenmore Stackable washer/dryer Model #11088752793, won't heat


    Hi,
    Either the elements have blown, or it could be a device called a thermal overload which has popped. (There may also be a loose wire which connects to the heating elements). Have your drier checked out by a good handyman or technician.
    Best wishes,
    Graemevm
