Its probably either a thermal cut off, thermostat,and or heating element. you need an ohm meter to check each one for resistance and replace whats bad

All of a sudden, my 18 year old Kenmore gas dryer is not producing hot air. The motor is working & the barrel is revolving. What can I do short of spending $500-$600 for a new comparable Kenmore gas...


It sounds like your heating element has given up the ghost and broken OR you have a bad thermostat that isn't telling the heating element to work. I would suggest you find the tag on your dryer with the model number on it and then go to www.searsparts.com and look it up and find the heating element and thermostat and decide if you want to spend that much.

NOTE: Usually, on older models, I always recommend that my client replace both so that I don't have to come back again in a few months to change the other. They seem to both fail close to each other.

How do I change out the heating element on my kenmore oasis electric dryer model 110.67032600


Use a putty knife to press against NUMBER43.
This is a newer cabinet but basically busts down like an older one.f4825eb.jpg9b58516.jpgAfter the front is removed the dryer magically becomes exactly like this older model here: Cabrio dryer service manual. Similar to oasis.

Kenmoore Model 86863100 - Dryer won't heat


The heating element on a Kenmore dryer typically reads about 9 to 13 ohms if good. Isolate the terminals by disconnecting any wires to ensure accuracy of your readings.
