A failed heating element would be the most likely cause.

Some objects have fallen down the lint trap in my Kenmore dryer model 592-99057 01. Do I have to remove the front panel or does the lint trap housing come off ?


I don't find any info on that model number. However in most units the front bottom panel comes off, then you can disassemble the fan housing and lint trap. While you are in there take a vacuum cleaner to the whole under side of the unit. Also be sure to disconnect the power first.

No heat in dryer


Someone will need to tear it all apart and check the "overheat thermostat switches" with a ohm-meter or electrical tester.
One has likely stopped your heat.
.There are from 3 to 6 of them in the back and bottom of your machine.
Also, the heating element may have broken, (it is "used up").
The heating element is the most common problem.
Be blessed

Kenmore 100.85081400 no heat


check the thermal fuse on the blower housing if its open some units wont heat,also check the heating element if heated electrically,or the ignitor on gas fired units,by the number you provided i believe you meant its a 110.85081400 instead of the 100.85081400 (and is electrically heated) you provided which is produced by whirlpool for sears (kenmore) also there is a control board located inside behind the control panel that may be a culprit,but check the first two things i suggested at the top

Kenmore dryer 592-89047 won't start


Sounds like the lint may have fallen into the fan and has jammed it. The motor will hum if that happens. Its an easy job to clean just take your time taking the blower cover off and reverse the process replacing it.

Kenmore dryer will not heat up to dry clothes. serial# MD0748533 mod# 97281100 72811


Your issue is as follows:
"the dryer works but there is no heat to dry the clothes.

Based on the information provided above, I am unable to provide a positive solution to your issue.

Following this LINK, provides valuable D.I.Y. safety information on the make and model number of your appliance. In order to access your product information, you will need to enter the model number stamped on the manufacturers product information data tag, located on the unit, and not in the User's Manual.

Note: A volt-ohm meter is beneficial in performing electrical tests.

This information is for an electric, generic model dryer only!

My Solution is:
If your dryer doesn't heat, check these:
Temperature Switch; make sure a positive heat selection has been made, if still no heat, then check these:



Power from the house
Heating element
Thermal fuse
Wiring
Power from the house: Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.

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.

Thermal fuse: On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)

Wiring: A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.
