Hi, This element is located behind the lower front panel.
Remove the screws and pull it toward you. Now you will see the element below the drum on the right hand side. Check and see if there is 240V going to the two terminals to the element. If there is voltage, change the element. If there is no voltage, UNPLUG the dryer ads check continuity on all the theral stats and the safety fuse located on the element housing and the blower housing. These parts should be closed.
If I can assist you further or get you the part #'s please let me know. I have the parts for the nodel on my web site at www.whirlpoolpartssurplus.com

Thanks
Vic

Kenmore elite he4 moder 110 won't heat


In terms of likelihood, here is what's wrong:
1) The heating element has failed.
2) One of the several "overheat thermostats" has overheated and failed.
These are found in the back or the bottom of the dryer in the rear.
3) One of the wires to something, like the heating element, has burned in two.
4) The panel where the electric cord attached to the back of the dryer has failed. This will be inside the back of the dryer, usually behind a small plate.
5) The circuit breaker for the "heating" circuit wire of your dryer is popped and needs to be reset. (That is the circuit breaker found in your hall, or basement, or garage, or wherever.)
If you decide to fix it yourself, a question to "fixya" might get you step-by-step instructions.
Be blessed

Won"t heat up


Check the Circuit Breaker. It is a double Breaker Switch. one side is for the heat one for the motor. If that is good then it's possibly the Heating Element or one of the two heat sensors.

I have an Oasis elite electric dryer model #110.6706 and I do not have heat even the drum is turning.I allready read in the troubleshooting book about fuses or breakers.I check the breakers but I can not...


if you have circuit breakers in your panel, you won't have fuses also, if you have turned the one controlling the dryer completely off and back on again, thats fine, what your going to have is a burned element on the heating coil,

Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load dryer wont get hot ?


Hi

If the dryer is not drying the clothes then you would need to check for the following things-

1. Inspect the fuses and circuit breakers they may have burned out or tripped. Usually, dryer will still tumble but not create heat if a fuse or a circuit breaker is not working.

2. Check for the amp reading at 240 V, it should have reading of 24, 21 and 3 amp (approx.) for 2 lines and neutral respectively.

3. Heating element may have turned or the connection to the element might be loose. Sometimes a shorted circuit element will keep on blowing the fuse or circuit breaker.

4. Motor wiring shorting to ground.

Hope this helps...

I don't have heat to my dryer.


Hi,

Make sure that Front of the dryer is not blocked, Air flow is needed to dry.


Check the blown fuses and home’s circuit breaker tripped. Dryer use 2 household Fuses or a circuit breakers, Replace the Fuses or reset the circuit breaker.


Another common cause of a dryer failing to heat is a faulty heating element.You will need to replace it.


Good Luck and have a nice day.
Rating the solution is highly appreciated

My Kenmore Elite (Whirlpool) HE3 elctric dryer is no


A dryer not heating usually means that either the heating element is burned/broken (open circuit); a thermal fuse in line with the heating element is blown or; a thermostat is faulty.

Dryer needs to be partially disassembled to diagnose with a multimeter.

Kenmore elite , no heat


Check the following to address this issue.




1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses. An electric dryer uses two circuit breakers or fuses, and if only one of two is tripped or blown, the dryer might still run but not heat. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

2. Heating element
A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Dryer working but no heat


The manual says that two circuit breakers used,and that the dryer
can spin but no heat if one of them tripped, check your panel and see
if any breakers are tripped. If this was the problem,have an electrician
check the circuit.
