    Thanks for your response. I guess this model is rare or something, as the parts store couldn't find it either... Anyways, the element was actually in the rear panel on the right. It is in a cylander housing that I can' seem to get apart...

  • mgspam5539 Jul 16, 2009

    Yes, thanks. Of course, they made it so the screw at the top had to be taken out from inside the dryer, so the whole top of the dryer had to be taken off just for that one screw... But anyways, thanks again. Appreciate the help.

Hi, The model # isn't coming up for but, I can try and help you through this.
Remove the lower panel in the front and the element will be under the drum. If the element gets 240V and does not heat up, the element needs changes. If there is no voltage to the element, check continuity on the thermostats.
If any of the show an open circuit, replace is.
Please let me know if this helps you or if I can assist you further.

    Ok What you will need to do is, reach up above the cylinder and there is a strap holding it to the bulk head. There will be a 5/16" screw holding it. Once you get the screw out, the cyclinder will release and pull out. Then you will find a 5/16" screw holding the element to the cylinder.

    Does this help?

I have a Roper Electric dryer that will not heat up and will run through the cycles somtimes. I have ordered and replaced the heating element, thermal fuse, high limit and cycling thermostats. I have

First check the thermal fuse on the back of the filter housing.

Attached is a good troubleshooting video. I think that you will find that the Roper is the same as the Whirlpool and Kenmore
Note that the first thing that he does is to test the incoming voltage.
I suggest that you do this with the dryer running. I have seen breakers that will pass voltage without a load and as soon as a load is applied there is no voltage showing. As he says in the video the dryer can run on 110V as the motor is 110V however if it is missing the other leg of the 220V it can't heat. Another way that you could test this is to reverse the two incoming hot wires.

Kenmore dryer 11062062100

If a dryer is not heating - and it is electric, then the first thing to check are the breakers. It runs on a double breaker and half of the breaker may be good (allowing for other functions other than heat). Half breaker will run motor and timer but the element needs both breakers (220v). If that is not the issue, then element may need to be inspected.

Kenmore 65882 .. replaced heating element .. still doesn't heat .. is there a reset button??

Bummer, it is almost never the heating element. Check breakers, F U L L Y turn it off, forcefully so, and test again. Then look into the thermal limiters, and their connections, then look into the contact in the timer....
PLEASE remember to unplug the unit before any servicing or testing.

Kenmore,softheat will run but wont dry

If the dryer is not heating or not heating at a high enough level, it may be caused by a faulty thermal fuse or a heating element that is burned or partially burned out. Both components can easily be tested with an ohm meter or multimeter for continuity. If there is no continuity, then the component is defective. The thermal fuse is usually located on or near the exhaust duct just inside the back the dryer. The heating element will be obvious when you see it. Sure hope this helps ya and best wishes.

My Dryer Will Not Warm Up Or Heat Up At All!!!

Hope this info helps, ps don't forget to give me a rating thanks!!

For an electric dryer that runs but doesn’t heat, follow this repair roadmap:
Flip the circuit breaker off and then back on. Electric dryers run on a two-pole, 240v breaker. A common problem is for one of the legs to break which cuts the 240v that the elements need to heat up but it still supplies the 120v for the motor. The result is that the dryer runs but doesn’t heat.
If the breaker checks out, then it’s time to do some surgery. Unplug the dryer and open it up.
. Use your ohm meter to test the thermostats. All should show continuity.
Measure the resistance of the heating element with your ohm meter. Normal readings are in the neighborhood of 30 ohms.
In rare cases, the centrifugal switch in the motor can fail which breaks the power circuit for the heating elements. If this is the case, then the entire motor must be replaced since the centrifugal switch is built into the motor.

Kenmore HE4t Dryer - no heat

The usual suspect for a Kenmore HE that runs, but doesn't heat is a thermal cut-out or the thermal fuse. Although they are a bit more resilient, in some cases the heating element itself could be bad. The way to check: 1. UNPLUG THE DRYER, FIRST. 2. Remove the bottom kick plate on the front of the dryer. 3. Remove the blower fan cover directly under the lint screen. There should be a couple of 1/4" screws holding it on. 4. Directly behind the blower fan cover on top of the blower fan housing are two components. One is the operating thermostat, and the white one is a thermal fuse. The fuse is a one-shot fuse that must be replaced if it is bad. 5. To the right is the heating element housing. There are two additional components mounted on the side of the element housing. The component furthest to the back is the thermal fuse. The one one closest to you is the hi-limit thermostat. 6. Check the continuity of thermal fuse and the thermal cut-out. They both should read a short. Additionally, check the resistance of the the heating element. The element should read something low (less than 20 ohms). 7. If the thermal fuse reads open, replace it. If the thermal cut-out is bad, replace the hi-limit thermostat with it. They are usually sold as a set. If the heating element is bad, you will need to disconnect all electrical leads and remove one 1/4" screw holding the element housing to the bottom casing. Pull the entire element housing from the dryer. Depending on model, sometimes the element slide out of the housing, sometimes you will need to remove a few screws to open it up. I hope this helps you.
