Hi there,

It seems like Heating element -
Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.

Good Luck!!

Please do rate this solution.

My dryer is on but it wont dry my clothes

Start by checking that the exhaust pipe is not blocked. Without airflow drying will be very slow. If you have good airflow, then the next item to check is the heating element, which can be checked with an ohm meter.

Hello, I've got a Kenmore 80 series dryer Model: 110. 96584110 that is tumbling but not heating. What would you recommend as a next step short of buying a new dryer. Should I change the heating element and...

Check for lint clogging first. Pull the unit away from the wall and look to see if there is an excessive build up of lint at or near the discharge vent or into the vent line. Clean as needed. If it's really clogged you may have to remove the back cover.

If no joy, then check for a bad thermostat. There should be two. They are located on the discharge vent near the dryer exhaust blower. You will have to remove the back cover of the dryer to get to them. Check the stats for continuity. MAKE SURE the power is off before working on the dryer.

It's much more likely to be on of the two items listed above, but if the dryer isn't clogged and the stats are both good, check the heating element.

It sounds like either of several things. Check the air discharge from the dryer where it exits your house, and be sure thet it is blowing strong. If it is not, you may have a partially plugged vent circuit. Unplug the dryer. Make sure that your vent hose and outlet ducting are clear of debris. Take the duct outside and clear it out. Check the inside rear of the dryer, where the duct connects, for debris, lint, etc..
If you have a strong air flow, you may have durned out heating elements. Again, with the dryer unplugged, gain access to the element leads and test for continuity, if you have a test meter and know how to use it. Replace any broken elements. Parts are readily available from most any appliance parts supply house.
Best regards,

Won't dry clothes

Try running the dryer with the vent pipe unplugged. There should be a lot of hot air coming out, if not the insides need to be cleaned. If it really moves air, and dries a load ok unhooked, your vent is clogged. Clean it if you can. If you can't, look into a lint trap that will work for your situation, some have a water trap, some are good filters, etc. If the air is not hot, some of the electric element may be bad. If it's gas, it could need a tune up and cleaning inside.

Kenmore 70 Series Dryer Model# 110.64742400

check the thermal fuse if it is blown also change the high limit thermal cut-off fuse shows your parts. go there and enter model number. Also check the heat element. to get into it remove the lint filter and the two screws you'll see there then pry the top up at the front corners. And through the back you should find the heat element and blower housing and thermal fuse and high limit fuse and cycling thermostat.

Long drying times model #11062712100

Try this and let me know what happens.
To reduce the suction draft and drying time your drier and save some cash, remove the lint catcher and take it to the sink. Run water into it, if there is excessive pooling of the water (water not running straight through) then fabric softener is fouling the lint screen. Use a small brush and dish detergent to clean it and then shake off all the water and dry the screen. Remember this tip on future driers and you will make the dryer blower motor last much longer.

Check the vent pipe going to the outside of the house, including the vent louver, to make sure the pipe is not partially or fully clogged with lint.

Your symptoms are a classic description of reduced or no airflow from the dryer.

I have a sears kenmore dryer 90 series that will not heat

Heating element may have burned out. Replace with universal element. Unplug dryer. Remove back. Remove housing covering element. Visually inspect the element and the terminals to ensure it is intact. If the element is broken, carefully unthread it without stretching it as the overall length will be required to prestretch the new one. Follow the same path to thread in the new element. Ensure the housing is clean inside as lint can cause the element to become damaged. Tighten the connections. Close it up. Reconnect power.

Kenmore series 90 plus dryer

LONG dry time is an indication of a clogged or restricted exhaust. Clogged or restricted exhaust is the primary cause of failure in all residential dryers.
Check the exhaust hose in the rear of the machine and make sure it it not crushed, kinked or clogged with lint. The vent pipe should be rigid metal not flexible foil or flexible plastic. If everything in rear looks OK, check the outside vent hood for any blockages. If everything checks out, the exhaust system may need cleaning. Cleaning kits are available at most home improvement centers or this website
