check the heating element itself with a meter for continuity OHMS CLOSED CIRCUIT. If not its defective.

Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage. 220 because if u only get half or 110 volts you will be able to run the machine which uses only 110 to run motor but not the heater which uses a full 220,

Check the thermal cut off, the cycling and the hi limit thermostats.
For continuity or OHMS. If no ohms or resistance they need replacement.

Lastly check your moister sensor. ( located inside the dryer door usually) Especially if machine seems to shut down early and clothes are still wet.
Test with a meter at room temperature and it should show continuity.

SOURCE: Kenmore dryer sounds like flat tire

take the top and front off your dryer and check the front drum slides. The top slide usually wears out.

SOURCE: Whirlpool dryer heats but the drum doesn't rotate

There is usually a large belt that goes around the drum to turn it ...it is either fallen off the motor pulley , broke .....or the motor may be gone in it ....not sure if there are any fuses for the motor on your dryer .
If you can tip the dryer over the bottom is usually open and you can see the motor and belt from there

SOURCE: drum rotates but does not give off heat

If the pilot will not light then there is an obstruction between the gas line and the pilot. Most times there is a particle that sticks in the pilot. The pilot needs to be disassembled to clear the blockage.

Usually the the pilot is a simple construction and one of the parts has a tiny hole that easily gets clogged. Obviously this needs cleaned.

If the problem persists, the must be a problem further up. check any elements in between. You could try to blow air through the system with various parts disconnected to identify the obstruction.

SOURCE: Dryer does not heat up.

The following link explains how to troubleshoot an electric dryer with a no heat problem:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r630242-dryer_runs_but_not_heat

First, begin by unplugging the dryer and verifying the voltage at the wall receptacle. You should read 220-240VAC across the two Hot terminals (left and right slots). If the voltage is incorrect, check to make sure you don't have a breaker tripped. Some homes use 2 separate 120VAC breakers to provide power to the receptacle vice using one 240VAC breaker.

If the voltage IS correct, leave the dryer unplugged and remove the cover plate on the terminal block in the back of the dryer (this is where the power cord is installed). Plug the dryer back in and take a voltage reading across the two hot (RED and BLACK) wires at the terminal block. You should read 220-240VAC. If the voltage is good, you have an internal heating problem. If the voltage is bad at the terminal block, but good at the receptacle, you have a bad power cord.

The reason a dryer will still run if the input voltage is incorrect, is because the drive motor only uses a portion of the 220 service. The motor runs off 110-120VAC, while the heating circuits require 220-240VAC. So, if you are missing 1/2 your input voltage due to a tripped breaker or bad power cord, your dryer will exhibit these symptoms.

If you determine the problem to be internal, the heating circuits will either be located in the rear of the washer on the right hand, or under the dryer drum on the right hand side. Usually, an easy way to determine is by the location of the lint screen filter. If the filter is on top of the dryer, the heating circuits are in the back of the dryer. If the lint screen is in the door, the heating circuits are located under the dryer drum.

All dryers are not constructed the same. However, generally, the Heating Element is located inside the heater box. The Thermal Cut-Out (TCO) will be located on the outside of the heater box on the end opposite the heating element terminals. The Hi-Limit Thermostat will be located adjacent to the heating element terminals. If either the TCO or Hi-Limit Thermostat are determined to be bad, replace both components at the same time. That is why these components are commonly sold as a set. Failure to do so may result in premature failure of any parts you replace. All these parts can be found at appliancepartspros.com, searspartsdirect.com, pcappliancerepair.com, or repairclinic.com. The average cost of these components varies, so shop around for the best price.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

My Kenmore Dryer, Mdl #86681800 won't start when hot


The most likely reason it that the electric motor is failing; the thermal protector on the motor is resetting after the motor cools down. The buzzing is due to a locked rotor in the motor while it is overheated.

Another much less likely possibility is that there is excessive drag on the drum causing the motor to overheat because it is working too hard spinning the drum. Excess drag is due to worn rollers, etc.

Try rotating the drum in the CORRECT direction by hand and see if it seems really hard to rotate. You can try this on a friend or relatives machine to see how much drag is normal.

To determine which way is the correct rotation, just start the dryer, open the door and look fast! To test, just turn it in the same direction as it was rotating before it stopped.

Coins inside Kennmor dryer drum paddles


You will need a thin putty knife. Run the drier to get it warm inside. Use the putty knife to slip under the paddles and lift them just enough to let the coins drop out when you rotate and raise the drum on that side.

Kenmore 11062912100 lost heat changed thermal cutoff & TSTAT cleaned everthing has good airflow also checked timer switch 2 operating normally. any ideas


did you check the outside vent sometimes they clog up with lint and will not dry properly this is the vent that sits on the outside wall of your house when they clog up the warm air trying to escape is backed up and causes the dryer to think it is getting more heat than it needs this is not the one inside your dryer

Kenmore Series 70 Stopped heating up


Dryers have a thermal cut-out (TCO) that can trip in an overheat condition. Yes, it is possible to restrict air flow from clogged lint and cause this overheat condition. The TCO acts as a fuse and cannot be reset. If defective, it must be replaced. Here is a link that also explains other causes of dryer heat related failures:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r630242-dryer_runs_but_not_heat

Now...normally if there is heating circuit failure, such as the TCO or heating element, the dryer drum will still rotate. The dryer just does not heat. If this is not your symptom, you may have another cause to your failure. This next link, provides more detailed symptom elaboration:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385301-thorough_dryer_advice

Pay particular attention to the sections in these links that discuss proper dryer ventilation. Poor air flow is the number one cause of dryer failures and dryer fires.

What is your model number? This will determine how your dryer is configured and where the heating components are located. If you have further questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
