Question about Kenmore 62802 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

I have a Kenmore dryer with no heat. I called the appliance repair man who said it was an electrical problem. I called the electrician and 220 is going to dryer, so it is not an electrical problem. Any ideas.

Kenmore 110.82822102 Electric Dryer runs but no heat.


I think the heating element went bad. Depending on your driers layout, you might have to remove the drum assembly to gain access to the heating element. Once drier drum assembly is removed, check and see if there is 220 volts going to the heating element. If there is, heating element is bad, if no voltage detected, the switch in the control panel is faulty. If you're not comfortable trying to check this out on your next step, I don't blame you. A qualified appliance technician would be the better answer especially working around 220 volts. Hope this works out for you.

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.

Dryer is overheating and blowing circuit


Electric dryers use 220 volts or two power lines of 110 volts each. Some components in the dryer need only 110 volts; the heating element requires 220 volts. So it's possible for one part of the dryer to be fine and another part to have a short circuit. Short circuits can be caused by the heating element, the main power cord, or any other part of the internal wiring. To decide where the problem lies, unplug the dryer, then:

  • If the circuit breakers or fuses remain on and/or intact when the dryer is unplugged, it's likely the problem is with the dryer. Contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

  • If the circuit breaker trips or the fuse blows when the dryer is unplugged, it's likely the problem is with the house wiring, fuse box, or circuit box. Contact a qualified electrician.

Timer runs but dryer has no heat


Okay...the following link will give you the steps necessary to diagnose and/or repair an electric dryer with a no heat problem:

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

Read the bottom of the link first. Verify your receptacle voltage is reading 220-240VAC. If you're only reading 1/2 the voltage you could be missing one leg of the 220 service. This will still enable the dryer to run, but the heating circuits will not operate. The reason is the drive motor only uses 110-120VAC, while the heating circuits require the full 220. If this is the case, a receptacle repair is required. Unless you are savvy with electricity, I would only recommend this repair be done by a certified electrician. If you're source voltage at the receptacle is good, then I would assume you have an internal component problem.

Read the section that discusses proper dryer ventilation. If the dryer vent ducting is clogged anywhere, and left in that condition, to dryer heating circuits will actually overheat and result in premature failure.

I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you require further assistance.

Most dryers are 220 so they can produce the amount of heat required to properly dry clothes. I would Not recommend trying to convert the dryer to 110 voltage. This may cause you alot of unwanted problems. I would find a Qualified electrician to install a 220 outlet at the location of the dryer .
