Could be a bad thermostat (I think in these appliances they use a thermistor) you need to troubleshoot with a volt meter.

I feel you need a new igniter or thermocoupler. Just remember those igniters are activated many times to keep constant right heat for the machine to do its job.

Kenmore elite model 11062952100 My dryer will not heat I replaced The thermal cutoff and high limit thermostat the dryer produce heat briefly but is not producing heat again.


There is a high limit switch (looks like a button with two wires hooked to it) on the bottom of the vent frame. When the vent fills up with lent at the bottom it gets hot. For safety, this limit switch will turn heat off. Remove the vent frame and clean it out and check the continuity of the switch. Also, make sure both heater elements are working properly.

My dryer has power and tumbles, but produced no heat (tested with vent tube off). I reset the circuit breaker and now it produces heat. What is up?


If your dryer is clogged up this will not produce heat inside the dryer but will produce heat to the vent tube. Try unclogging the Vent tube and see what happens.

My dryer spins and heat just a little but not enough to dry any clothes


Need to change the heater filament. The heater filament has several portions to produce heat. As it ages, some portions are not producing heat anymore hence the total heat produced by an old filament can not put out as much as originally designed.

My dryer does not produce heat Model #pcks443eb1ww


Could be a thermal fuse, which is generally the problem. It's cheaper than replacing the whole heating element. Try that first, or you can even test it, if you have a voltage meter.

You can also check to see if your vents are blocked. If airflow is blocked, it can turn off the flame, and not produce any heat. You can take off the vent hose and turn the machine on to see see if you get airflow, or if the ignitor kicks on the heat.
