Hi.

Test the heating element and the thermostat.

Both are tested using a multimeter to read impedance. Set multimeter at Rx1, on Ohms.

To test the element disconnect element and point tester probes at element contact.
If there is no continuity, and the circuit is open, then the element is faulty.

The thermostat can be tested jumping its wires to bypass it, but there are many safety concerns doing this kind of test.
Better disconnecting the thermostat and reading Ohms, as for the element.
At room temp the thermostat must have low impedance, if it goes to infinity, and circuit is open at room temperature, then the thermostat is bad.

If both test good, and you have no heating at all, then it may be a bad electronic control, or a wiring problem.

The model number you gave does not match.

Try Entering correct model number on this website to get parts and diagrams.

Regards.

Kenmore ultra fabric care dryer runs, but does not heat up Same as Christy's. Runs no heat, however, the exhaust vent is clear. Could this be the fuse or heating coil?


could be a thermal fuse,heating element or a heating element relay.if you pop the trim caps off of the sides of the console,and remove the 2 phillips screws in the corners and lift up console you will find a tech sheet inside.if you have a multimeter that you can check continuity with along with the tech sheet,you might be able to figure it out..good luck
