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.?

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

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
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
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
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.
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.
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.
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
I have a Kenmore Model 110.74612200 it came with the house and needs another service call-not heating- how old is this model? Wondering if it might be time to buy a new one. Dryer has seen a lot of use in the past 5 years from a household of six.
what type is this electric or gas? have you removed the exsaust from the wall and ran a load like this? if you have heat and this is an electric dryer it sounds like you have a blockage in your house. if the dryer runs fine without the exsaust attached then that is your problem. let me know
thermal fuse kit.it is blowing due to improper ventilation.their is a clog somewhere from dryer to where dryer vents outside.thermal fuse is located at top of your elemnt cage.you will replace the thermal fuse and your high limit fuse at the bottom of the elemnt cage.but have your venting checked or swept out.
check the ignitor under the door panel on the left side of the burner if it gets red when you turn the dryer on.if yes than see if gas shoots out and yes than how long it stays on if in few minutes it turns off than need thermal fuse checked so let me know up to this point if it works or not .
Most common cause of this is a clogged venting going to the outside to test this remove the vent from the back of the dryer and run a load if it drys ok them you know you have a venting issue and will need to be cleaned out if not plz repost and we can look deeper into it
