The problem is that the heating element has failed. This is an easy repair and if you are handy you can get all the information you need from the sears web site to assist you in changing the heating element. Product manuals are available for most in-stock items.
Order a product manual by calling 1-800-366-PART (1-800-366-7278). Or download a free product manual at www.managemyhome.com
The repair part is also available from sears parts deptartment (www.searspartsdirect.com) and will be about $50 guessing.
Best wishes!

Where to find fuses. My dryer is not heating up.


Does your dryer have power? If yes, then check (1) the flow of air outside the house from your dryer tube and (2) your circuit breaker panel for each circuit in the house (I've not seen fuses/breakers built into dryers -- though that could change). Then check (3) your heating element, (4) thermostat, (5) high-temp thermal cutoff switch, and (6) for debris in the air flow path to / from from the centrifugal fan.

My dryer is on but it wont dry my clothes


Start by checking that the exhaust pipe is not blocked. Without airflow drying will be very slow. If you have good airflow, then the next item to check is the heating element, which can be checked with an ohm meter.

We have a Kenmore 400 Series dryer. It heats up but our clothes is not getting dry. We have to cycle it twice to get our clothes dry on high heat. Any idea why it would take 2 cycles to dry?

This was the out vent of my dryer... If it gets this bad... open up the dryer housing and clean inside too. Also make sure the intake is free of lint.

Kenmore 70 Series Dryer not heating and not cutting off


I had an identical problem to yours this weekend with my Kenmore dryer. There were 2 problems.

1. Timer was broken. Does not advance to "OFF" position on timed dry, however it still works for auto-dry.

2. Thermal fuse was blown. Upon replacing, dryer heated up normally.

I believe when the timer broke, the dryer had kept running and blew the thermal fuse. On Sears' website, thermal fuse is $5.30, timer is roughly $80.

Kenmore 70 Series gas dryer Dryer will not heat I just moved in and the dryer has not been used in a while. What do I need to do to start it back up?


your flame will not be on all the time during the dry cycle. It cycles to prevent it from over-heating? Do you have clutter on top of it, such as clothes? If yes take everything off of it and never use the top for clothes piles or anything of this nature. When you have stuff on top it insulates it and the excess heat cannot disipate. 90% of the world uses the top for clothes piles. DON'T DO THAT EVER.
Good Luck
