I have a Kenmore Model #110.62822101 and had to put on a new plug yesterday because the dryer completely stopped. That fixed the power problem but now the dryer will not heat. It runs fine but will not heat up. Could the lack of electricity going through the power cord have killed something else?

Re: Dryer will not heat
The problem you are experiencing may be your thermal fuse which is located on the heater box where the heating element is enclosed. It is highly recommended to replace the high limit thermostat at the same time. These two parts are normally sold as a kit. The part number is 2651 and costs roughly $26.00 plus postage and handling if you order it on line. Repairclinic.com carries the part and can ship it directly to you. If you need step-by-step instructions on how to replace these components let me know.
Now...normally when the thermal cut out trips, it's for a reason. Make sure your exhaust ducting is clean and clear of debris, or the dryer will not operate for long. The dryer needs proper ventilation or it will overheat and trip the thermal cut-out again. You should clean the ducting about 4 times per year (once per season).

Service a Kenmore Dryer with some of the following issues: Heats but ... Kenmore, Whirlpool Dryer Repair - Heats properly,drum will not turn - 11068202794 ..... Whirlpool Kenmore Maytag Amana Dryer Won't Start - Easy Fix ...
you have to open the back off dryer,the r two thermostats. they are round held by 2 small screws. high heat- low heat. use volt meter to see which one is bad. if u put volt meter on wires,it will let you know which is bad. 30 to 35 a pc.
you need to send the model number,open the door and look around the opening where you put the clothes into the dryer and you'll see the tag with the model number.it will start with 110. or 417.because you have no heat that's why the timer won't advance,when the heat shuts down then the timer advances when the heat comes back on the timer stops moving or advancing,no heat the timer won't move.send the model number
is it gas ? next time open dryer door and send full model number if it heats for a while you have bad gas coils,when you change them out watch out for the coil with three prongs on it,there is a metal piece that sometime gets stuck in old coil when you remove it,if it happens just poke it out of old coil and slide it back on post where new coil will be installed
Sound like you need to replace the heating elament you will need to take your model number and make to repair shop for replacement parts or have a repair person come out and fix it for you . thanx for using fixya
Hello Friend, Your problem is very simple to fix. You need a thermal fuse, very simple and affordable to replace. To replace the thermal fuse just remove back cover of dryer and look down where the air blows out. Now, just to the left where all the wires are you will see a white plastic part with two wires plugged into it. This part is called a thermal fuse. Just remove these wires and replace the thermal fuse. Your dryer will run like new. Happy to help, Tim.
Nothing you did wrong! Probably needs a new heating element. Prices vary by model. Call Sears/Kenmore parts center nearest you. Tell 'em you need a heat element for your dryer. Be sure to provide your dryer's model number.
Unplug your appliance first before attempting repairs! Safety first and always!
Hi, I worked on one of these yesterday and have found that the thermal fuse blows first. If your dryer has the lint filter on top then the thermal fuse is behind the back panel and is located on the same duct as the lint filter.It will usually have blue wires on it instead of black or red.
