Question about Kenmore 659 Electric Dryer
My dryer runs fine but is not generating any heat. I suspect the heat element, but am wondering if it could be something more minor (moisture sensor . Is there a way to test the heat element before I replace it? Ideas on what else it could be?
First, make sure that there is no ventilation issue and that the vent is clean and clear. If the dryer isn't heating, check for a blown thermal fuse or a faulty heating element. Both components can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty component. Both components are located in the rear of the dryer. The thermal fuse is about an inch long and is usually attached to or near the exhaust duct. Remember to disconnect the dryer from the power source before attempting any repair.Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.
