The following link explains how to troubleshoot as dryer no heat problem:

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

First, double check your voltage at the wall receptacle. If incorrect, this will also cause the symptoms you describe. The reason: The drive motor only requires 110-120VAC to run, while the heating circuits require the full 220 service. If you are missing one leg of your 220 service, the heating circuits will not operate, but the drive motor will still run.

Next, pay particular attention to the section that discusses proper dryer ventilation. Most dryer heat related problems are attributed to poorly/imporperly installed dryer exhaust vent ducting, or a dryer that is clogged with lint preventing proper air flow. If left in a clogged condition, a dryer will actually overheat to the point of failure and you will experience repeated failures of any components you replace.

Read through the link provided and let me know if you have any questions. I hope this helps you.

You should have your owner's manual on hand to locate specific parts and understand how to disassemble the dryer. Also make sure that the power is disconnected from the appliance before making any repairs.

1)Check the fuses near the heating element. Inspect them for breaks inside the fuse. Replace them if necessary.
2)Test the temperature switch with a volt-ohm meter. Set the meter to RX1 and zero it out. Touch the meter probes to each terminal on the switch. The reading should be zero. Next turn the switch on and test it again. Now the reading should show infinity. If the switch fails either test replace it with a new one.
3)Check the heating coil to see if it is bad. Use the volt-ohm meter and touch the probes to each of the heating coil terminals. If it reads zero, the heating coil needs to be replaced.

Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.



if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....



If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

Dryer is not heating up.


90% of electric dryers emitting cold air need a new heating element installed. If you've checked the thermal fuse, and verified the unit has around 220 volts of power, then the only thing left is the heating element. Typically costs around $40-$60. Can be done by you if you have basic electrical knowledge, otherwise call an electrician.

I own a Kenmore Dryer and it runs but will not heat. The heating coil ohms out OK and earlier I replaced the Thermostat and a switch and the unit was fine for a while. It has now stopped heating again and...


Maybe the vents are clogged in the tubing area. If so the moister sensor will not let the unit heat at all at times. Once thoroughly cleaned it should work with all the new parts installed

Kenmore 90 Series Model No. 11070902990 Dryer Tumbles but No Heat


Jacob, are you measuring this across the connection at the board/solenoid or to ground? It could be that there is a relay involved and you are reading open circuit voltage and then closed circuit voltages. One of the panels for your unit should have a schematic on it. If possible could you take a picture of it and post it as a photo? Have you also checked the small thermostats that are usually on the heating duct? Also check your fan squirrel cage to make sure it is still attached to the motor. Those are two common failures in gas dryers.

Kenmore gas dryer starts to heat but does not maintain the heat. It cools down after a few minutes.


Something simple for you to try is: remove the duct from the dryer,run a cycle,IF the unit works fine, you will need to have your vent system cleaned to the outside. If you still have troubles, you will need to place a service call to have the unit diagnosed
