Dyer is not heating turns on and runs but it just does not heat up i took off hose and clean . also looked in back of dyer by taking off clover to look for fuse please help .

Kenmore dryers have what we call a thermo fuse, usually on top on the burner area - I would check continuity on this unit and replace if nesessary.
If the thermo fuse is okay and dryer heats up with gas, check your igniter and/or gas unit coils.
If dryer heats up with electric elements check continuity at both element ends and/or high limit thermostat.

Dyer not working

Most likely a faulty heating element or a blown thermal fuse. Both components can be tested using a multimeter. Test for continuity. A lack of resistance indicates a bad component. The thermal fuse located just inside the rear of the dryer and is usually mounted on the exhaust duct. It is about one inch long. If it has no continuity, the thermal fuse is blown. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Dyer is not getting hot

If the dryer is not heating, check for a faulty thermal fuse or heating element. The thermal fuse is located just inside the rear of the unit, and is usually attached to the exhaust duct. It is about one inch long. The thermal fuse and the heating element can be tested using an ohm meter or multimeter. Check for continuity. If there is none, the component is defective. Sure hope this helped and best wishes.

Tumble dyer

first, you should check the exhaust system, make sure every inch of it is clean on the inside. if it is clogged, there is sensors that turn off your heating element as a safety measure. if this is clean, there is 2 heat sensors, one of them probably needs replaced.

Where is the fuse?

The fuse is located in the dryer fan/blower wheel cover and is a one time fuse, which means it is not resettable. I did a look up for the kenmore model # that you gave and I cannot find your model listed. If you go to and do a search for your dryer you will be able to see all the drawings on your dryer. You will be able to find the replacement part # and how to get to it. Test your fuse to check if it is open if it is, then replace the fuse. There is also a temperature sensor on the back wall of the dyer drum (it is a small metal circle close to the exhaust outlet). Sometimes there is simply a build up of fabric softener residue on them that stops the dryer from heating up. Clean the sensor with an alcohol wipe.
Hope this helps and don't forget to get all the lint out of the dryer before putting it back in service.
