    Kenmore Elite 110.63952102, similar problem, no heat but everything else seems to work fine...heater element has continuity (10 ohms), thermal cutoff has continuity, hi temp thermostat has continuity, thermal fuse has continuity, and thermistor has continuity (10 ohms), is 10 ohms too high for the thermistor, looks like a direct link, unsure why the resistance. The power to the house is good checked with DMM, 240 and 110 both present on the four prong connection and the power seems good at their connection. When I ran supply connections test in the tech sheet I did not get continuity on the L1 connection on the plug and the black wire on the timer as expected and the guide now says there is a problem in the wiring harness, needle in the haystack on that one, suggestions.

This could be any number of issues.  You can remove the front kick panel by inserting a putty knife between the door section and top of kick panel and pop those clips down.  The clips are approx 2 inches from the sides.  When you pull down the kick panel, the element will be on the right side.  The element could be bad, or the thermofuse (which is mounted on that box in front of the thermostat).  You can ohm out these two and see if you get resistance.  These are the usual suspects that can cause a no heat problem.  Other problems could be a bad timer or bad heat control board.  These are unlikely, but they do go bad.

Whirlpool dryer is not drying properly. Have to go through a couple of cycles to dry clothes.


2 things are needed to dry clothes. 1 is good air flow. Check to make sure that the dryer vent is not clogged or partially clogged with lint. Also make sure there are no kinks in the vent hose. With the dryer running you should feel good air flow blowing out of the outside house vent. The 2nd thing a dryer needs heat. Check to see that the dryer feels warm to hot when you reach in to tough the clothes. It is possible that the heat element has partially failed. Another thing to investigate is how well the laundry machine is spinning out the water in the spin cycle. This spin cycle is used to get as much water out as possible prior to placing the clothes in the dryer. The wetter the clothes when they come out of the laundry, the longer it takes to dry them.

My daughter in put a load of wet clothes (not completely finished spin cycle). Now dryer doesn't heat the clothes but seems to have all other functions.


Try running the dryer empty to see if the elements are heating. With the weight of wet clothes it is possible to trip the overloads.

My roper dryer is spinning my electric meter like a top I replaced the heating unit but problem is still there on fluff dry no heat the meter crawls but low or high heat and the meter spins like atop


I am assuming that your talking about how much energy your using. When the unit runs on full heat, your electric meter will spin as you say like a top, this is quite normal. Electric dryers use tremendous amount of energy. Going on fluff your using just the normal 120v and not pulling many amps to run the dryer. However with the unit on high your pulling more amps and are now drawing 240v to operate your unit.
If your clothes are drying than it is not the heating unit.

If your concern is the amount of energy expended, there is always the old clothes line, which is energy efficient and if you live in a part of the world where the air is clean your clothes will smell fresher than if it came from a dryer.

Check drive belts. If too loose or too worn it will not spin at proper speed.

Clothes dryer doesn't spin


The way most domestic clothes dryers are made, it's usually hard to determine that the heating part works without the drum turning.

But, chances are, the drum belt is broken.

Please give the specific model number of your unit for a more complete response.
