You really need a volt / ohm meter to check for Continuity & Volts Its well worth the investment... $15.00 bucks give or take a few I would check to see if you have 220v to back of dryer where the cord mounts to dryer, If dryer is getting only 1 leg 110 volts instead of the 220 will it not heat. Check themostates & heater for Continuity... Most models, Now have a.. Hi-limit fuses that need to be checked for Continuity

Re: kenmore heavy duty clothes dryer will not heat

Most problems with dryers not heating is the thermo fuse is blown. bout 20 buck to replace it looks like a small white flat football. but most likely if it went out that means the the high temp thermostat is messed up too

Why isn't My Kenmore Heavy Duty 70 Series Soft Heat Extra Capacity Electric Dryer drying clothes on any one cycle?

One possibility: Air flow! Make sure that the lint trap is cleaned before each cycle. You likely need to thoroughly clean out the vent piping out the back of the machine- a buildup of lint in here can also restrict airflow.

My Kenmore Series 90 heavy duty gas dryer does not heat.


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 properly.

if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....

If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

check out this electric no heat tip...

I have a series 90 heavy duty electric Kenmore dryer. I think the heating element has gone out. Is this an easy fix. Dryer still works just doesnt get hot to dry clothes.

If The front panel is one assembly then the element is on the back behind the cover, if there is a small panel on the bottom ending about where the door starts the element is behind that panel on the right hand side. In either case it if fairly easy to get to. Also check the two thermostats on the heating element. Both should have continuity. If either one is open replace them both.

Kenmore heavy duty dryer

You didn't mention if the motor runs or if it heats. If it does both of these, you'll need a new belt.

Kenmore heavy duty plus

Sure. The likely problem is a broken belt. Do you hear the motor? If not, it could be the motor. Pull the back off the unit...with the power off and have a look.
