Dryer will not heat

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. 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).

Hope this helps you.

The dryer is not heating up and the dial stops at the cool down so the dryer will not shut off by it self. Its a kenmore 70 series dryer.

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 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

Kenmore electric dryer (model # 110 60202990) dried a load of clothes like normal. But with the current load, it suddenly stopped heating. How can I fix this?

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.

Kenmore dryer doesnt heat

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!

No Heat

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.

Kenmore heavy duty dryer

You didn't mention if the motor runs or if it heats. If it does both of these, you'll need a new belt.
