Question about Dryers
I have a kenmore elite dryer 11060942990 that will not heat. I have checked the circuit breaker and airflow. All seems to be good except the no heat. How do i get to the heating element? What else should i do?
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

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...
