My dryer is not heating at all where to I find the thermostat and coils? Thank You


Most dryer heating elements are incased in a metal type box behind the dryer. It looks like the size of a shoe box for the most part, the heating element or coiled wires are inside that box, most of the time the coil wire breaks and will not get red/hot and will not heat at all. I've replace the heating element on my dryer, wasn't that hard to find and remove and examine that the coil was broken not making contact any more.

WHY WOULD IT NOT BE HEATING UP


This means your heating element has burnt out. Usually they consist of a coil, much like you can see on a hair dryer, in line with the air intake. Most common cause is the coil burning out due to excess lint and severing itself. When the coil breaks electricity cant travel from positive to negative so the coil stops heating up. Look online, try sears, type in your model number followed by - heating element - . You should be able to find your model number in the manual or by searching the name of the dryer. If you get the heating element and pay someone to install it, you should not have to pay more then getting a new dryer.

Dryer air is not getting hot. All other functions still work.


There are several things that can prevent a dryer from not heating.. Unplug Power Before checking.
Electric Models
1- Power- Your dryer runs on 220volts. 110 runs the entire dryer and 110 runs just the element. Your breaker may have half tripped. Check to see if you are getting the correct amount of power by using a ohm meter. Also check the power cord for burn marks on the plugin and the cord itself.
2- The thermal fuse can prevent this from heating. The thermal fuse is a sensor on the blower housing the measures the temperature of the air. There is a cycling thermistat near the thermal fuse. If the dryer temp gets over 190-220 degrees the thermal fuse will blow to cut power to the element to prevent fire. You can test this by using a continuity tester.
3- High limit and/or thermal cutoff. These are both sensors on the heating element housing. Thermal cutoff is at the top and the high limit is near the bottom above the heating element connectors. Test these with a continuity tester.
4- Heating element- Just below the high limit on the heater housing. Test for continuity.
5- Motor- The motor has to reach a certain rpm to activate a sinfrigrial switch inside the motor. If the rpm is not reached it will not allow current to go to the element.
6- Timer- Make sure you are trying this on timed dry. Sometimes people use air fluff and forget to change it back. The timer could also not be sending current to the heater.

Gas models
1- Electric ignitor- Inside the flame tunnel inside of dryer near where gas line hooks up. Usually if it glows than it is still good but check to see if it is sending and amp signal to the heat coils.
2- Heater coils are two valves that open up when the ignitor send signal saying the ignitor can ignite the gas. Heat coils will not open to send gas if it does not receive a signal from the ignotor. They look like two round disk with two wires running from ignitor.
3- Flame sensor- Change if you change the heater coils. The flame sensor could not be detecting the flame inside so it shuts down the ignitor.
4- Motor- See above
5- Timer See above

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.
