Question about Kenmore 62602 Electric Dryer
My Kenmore electric dryer stopped drying. It still runs, just no heat. I cant find any markings to tell me what series it is, but the matching Kenmore washer is a 70 series. Thanks for any help My 6-Yr old lightly used Kenmore Elec Model 110.62082101 (at $669 new, fairly expensive back then) dryer has the same problem. Tech said CONTROL BOARD, quoted $387 replace/repair. I'm going to buy the $159 part online and switch it out myself. At $387 I would buy a new (Ken-NO-MORE) dryer but I'm gambling the $150 will work. Wish me luck
Hi, You will need to remove the front lower panel and this will get you to the element and thermostats.
With the dryer running. check voltage to the element and you should get 240V. If there is voltage, you will need to change the element.
If there is no voltage to the element, UNPLUG the dryer and check the thermostats and fuse for continuity. These parts are located on the element housing and the blower housing under the drum.
If any of the thermostats or the fuse are open, they will need replaced.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Before I wish you luck i want you to review all of the possible reasons for your problem
If your dryer doesn't heat, check these:
Power from the house
Power from the house Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.
Heating element Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.
Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)
Wiring A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.
