Hello, you either have a problem with the door switch or the thermal fuse. check the door switch by hitting it manually with the door open. if the light does not switch on or is on all the time its a bad door switch, if the light switches on and off ok then the problem is going to be the thermal switch. it looks like this. the heat element went out on my dryer a few months - b18122b.jpg Hope this helps.

Hello, I have Kenmosre 90 series dryer. Did a load ealier today, and it was fine. Went back to put another load in and realised NO heat was on, absolutley no heat in the dryer, the air inside is room...


you may need a heating element. You can go to your locale appliance store and buy the element & install it yourself . Just make sure you take All your dryer info, (etc; the dryer model, make, yr & the serial # ) this info is easy to find, its located inside the dryer door. Just call around your locale area and ask them how much it is for the heating element, for your dryer. It should be rather cheap compared to the cost of Kenmore appliance company coming out to fix it for you. The heating element is rather easy to install. I have installed a few in my own dryers and in my hot water heater.
Thank you.
Sincerely,

Heating element is not working


I would say it could be one of two things. The heating elements could be bad, not likely though as the were working when the dryer was reset. You may want to try changing your circuit breaker, as your heating elements work off of the 2 phase 240 voltage while everything else in the dryer works off 120V. Check the voltage on each phase of the breaker in your electric panel see if your putting out the full 110-120V per phase.

Amana les60aw gets hot in dryer but clothes wont dry. cleaned out vent, shortend exhaust hose. noticed an orange glow coming from back vents when i turned it back on???


The orange glow is the heating element working. It mush have good air flow or the coil will burn out and stop heating. Also the thermal limit will stop the heat if to great. If you went all through the vent and the tubing is not smashed or flat check the outside vent for air circulation, if good try to dry a load of clothes. Are you sure your washer is spinning out well? Wet clothes take longer to dry.

Dead dryer


usually when the thermal fuse goes bad the dryer will not respond to anything but your job will be to remove the back panel and test the fuse with an ohm meter it looks almost like your old glass auto fuses about an inch - inch and a half except its probablly black or gray or any color it will have a terminal on each end test both sides with an ohm meter if this goes bad theres probably a blockage in the vent that can also cause the heating element to die prematurely.
