Check the thermal fuse. It's about an inch long and is usually located inside the rear of the dryer attached to or near the exhaust duct. It can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity means a bad thermal fuse. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Dryer warms..... but not enough heat to dry...about 10 years old 80 series Kenmore electric dryer


Probably has a broken heating coil...as the temperature goes up it expands and moves from natural position of touching....that would give the false indication of continuity in the coil when it cools back down and touches again. Visually inspect coil.

Dryer does not heat, but does tumble clothes and blows air., what is wrong?


Check the electric heating element. This is a long coil, looks like a long spring. That spring (coil) could be broken. If it is broken, you can just take it and twist the two halves together and put it back in. OR buy a new coil spring.. This is in the bottom of the dryer.

Doesn't heat up


Sheri, This says that you have an electric dryer and that it fails to create hot air. It can be 2 issues. (1) the electric heating coil (behind a panel in the lower back of the dryer) has broken and must be replaced or (2) the air duct work inside the dryer is clogged and the heated air is unable to pass through the dryer.

If you are sure that air is flowing, the it is the coil and to replace it, remove the panel screw and locate the 2 mounting screws for the heating coil. Remove it and take it to your local appliance parts place and ask for another. Insert that, connect and fasten as the original and you should be of and running

Kenmore 64942300 Electric Dryer runs, no heat


This may seem too simple of an answer based on your extensive troubleshooting thus far, but the most common reason for cold air running of any electric dryer is a broken heater coil. This is simply a coil of wire that is heated to warm the air in the fan duct. These often overheat and break if the vent duct is blocked, too long, or has odd bends that can restrict flow. Recommend replacing heater coil and use smooth wall vent pipe. Avoid coil type flexible duct.
