Hi.

Test and eventually replace the Dryer thermal fuse (part 8 on diag).
The fuse is located on the blower wheel cover.
The fuse can be tested using a multimeter.
If the fuse has continuity , then is good.

Test the heating element (part 17 -Dryer heating element ) and the thermostat (part 7) Thermal cut-off .

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.

All test and repair must be done by a technician.

If you need to contact a technician you can call the number listed on the owners manual.

Won't turn on after power outage


It is hard to diagnose a set if I don't have a brand name or model number. But if this happened after a power surge, then you could just have a blown fuse. If the fuse doesn't fix, then your problem lies in the power supply somewhere.

Kenmore 70 series dryer won't heat


Post the model number for clarity. These tests should only be attempted by competent service personnel. Do you actually have 220 power? Are both legs of circuit hot...at 120v? While dryer is unplugged from power, check the heating coil for continuity. Also check continuity to ground from each end of heater (should not have continuity to ground at both ends). Also there should be power to the heating element when activated.

Timer won't advance on autosense,seems to work normally otherwise. timer advances fine on all other settings. was thinking it was the cycling thermostat, but the blower seems to be cycling. puzzled


when on auto the heat comes on and then shuts off and then the timer advances,when the heat comes back on the timer stops advancing,when on time dry the timer will advance no matter what's happening with the heat.next time send the brand name and model number so i can help you better,if it's gas you could have bad gas coils,you'll have heat for like the first 15 to 30 minutes then when the coils get hot they fail and no heat until they cool down,also if the vent line and the duct that the lint filter goes into hasn't been cleaned out the heat will shut down and if that happens the timer isn't gonna move.check that out and let me know what you find and send the brand and model number.

Has not heat - it happened suddenly


Thermostat controls heat. There is also a

motor centrifulgal switch, in the element

circuit, that the motor closes to insure

the motor is turning. Try another heat

setting. There is more than one

thermostat. You may have blown the

'thermal fuse' too, whcih requires

replacemant.

No Heat


CHANGE THE GAS DRYER SENSOR FOR IGNITER AND FLAME. GO TO www.repairclinic.com ENTER MODEL NUMBER AND LOOK FOR PART 2681 FIRST CHECK YOUR THERMAL FUSE ON BLOWER HOUSING PART 483890. THE ABRUTNESS LEADS ME TO BELIEVE THERMAL IS BLOWN.

Dryer runs fine, does not heat?


Remove the back and on the right side is the heater assembly. Attached to this assembly is a safety thermal fuse at the top and a heat limiter thermostat at the bottom. The fuse, thermostat or heater may have failed. The MOST common reason for any of these parts to fail is a clogged or restricted exhaust. Be sure to clean/inspect the exhaust system or the dryer will fail again.

We have Kenmore Elec Dryer - Model # 8860293, 70 Series. Where is the thermal fuse located? Dryer starts and shuts off in less than 5 seconds.
