My Kenmore electric dryer model 417.80412700 wont heat up but the element is still good. What else could be wrong?

Some dryers have a hi limit safety switch that is a one time fuse type switch . If the dryer gets too hot this switch opens and prevents the heating element from operating it is usually about 1/2" wide x 2" long plastic part with two wires attached to it.
You can test this part with a continuity tester. Unplug dryer, remove wires and test for continuity between the terminals. No continuity means the part needs to be replaced.
Hope this helps.

My electric dryer doesn't heat up

Whats the model number and brand.

Fix should be straight forward.

a) One of your safety switches is burned out. Example Thermal fuse, Safety thermostat etc. Or Thermistor problem. Cheap fix.

b) or your Heating element is burned out. Mid price range repair.

c) or computer board relay problem. Repair could go up to $ 300/= plus with parts and repair labor.

From Service experience.... If it is SAMSUNG most likely the heating element. If is Whirlpool or Maytag then Thermal fuse or Safety cut off.

If the failure is due to safety switch failure, then after replacing the safety switch you have to check your lint exhaust line to make sure the line is clear. It may be blocked and thats why the safety has burned out. Though not always.

My dryer turns on and spins and everything but it has no heat to it. Whats wrong with it.

don't know if you fixed your dryer problem yet.if it worked fine at your old place and now you're having problems at the new house how did you vent the dryer outside?if you hooked your dryer onto a vent line that was there the line could be blocked with lint and popped either the thermal fuse or the high linit thermostat or it's just coincidence that you have a problem right after the move.if you still need help with this let me know and i'll be happy to help you,if you open the door and look around the opening you'll see a tag with the model number,if you send this i can look up your dryer to see what parts are in it.thanks

Kenmore elite model 11062952100 My dryer will not heat I replaced The thermal cutoff and high limit thermostat the dryer produce heat briefly but is not producing heat again.

There is a high limit switch (looks like a button with two wires hooked to it) on the bottom of the vent frame. When the vent fills up with lent at the bottom it gets hot. For safety, this limit switch will turn heat off. Remove the vent frame and clean it out and check the continuity of the switch. Also, make sure both heater elements are working properly.

I have a Kenmore 500 series dryer. The dryer just stopped working but the light stays on when the door is closed.

the door switch is broke.when you push on the paddle of the door switch the lite should go out,if you don't see the paddle it most likely broke off,you need to send the full model number next time,it will start with 110.or similar.the door switch is a safety so the machine won't run until the door is closed,if the switch is broke no power will go to start the dryer

On/off switch only works when you hold it in, also has no heat

there is a control board in next to the timer that is causing your problem you have to replace it!
