Question about Dryers
Kenmore 70 series that wont heat up can i just light a pilot light?
Generally, a dryer with a turning drum but no heat is caused by one of three or four issues. The first and most common is the thermal fuse. Located near the lint tunnel in the rear, the rear chassis panel with eight screws, needs to be removed to access that device. It looks like a flat white plastic strip with two wires coming from it, usually held in place by one screw and a slot which clamps one end. It blows when heat is exceeded in the lint tunnel. If you just dried a thick blanket, a large load of dense items, such as levi jeans or other items made of heavy fabric, you can count on it. Of all the problems with dryers, 99% are the thermal fuse. Get your machine serial number at the back of the machine and go to your local appliance parts dealer with that info. $15 is the average price of this item and about an hour of disassembly/reassembly of the back panel. Clean out the lint tunnel and lint filter while you're back there! Check the "repairclinic" dot com's site for more insight into your dryer's parts.
