Kenmore Elite HE4 Electric Dryer Model 110.85087-400

I have been having problems with heating issues. I have replaed the Termal Fuse twice now. While in the diagnostic test mode, there are no error codes but beebing does exist. All test performed are noraml. Any idea what the problem could be? I have call Sears for a service tech but they are not offering service in my area. If needed, do you suggest a service repair company in the 01501 area code.

    So youre saying that you have checked the hi limit tstat and the heater element itself?? What was your reading on the heater?? Also remove cover where cord connects to dryer. Plug dryer back in and check from red to black should say 208-240.

My Kenmore Elite HE4 Electric Dryer still runs but is not heating. The Manual says it could be 2 fuses or a circuit breaker but doesn't tell you where they are located. Where are the 2 fuses located?

My Kenmore elite electric dryer will not heat. I


Thanks for using FixYa. No Heat issue in an electric dryer is usually caused due to three things mainly: Thermal Fuse, Wiring Harness and/or Heating Element. Start with checking the Thermal Fuse which is mounted inside the back cover panel to the exhaust duct and is mounted in white plastic housing. If that’s fine then the Heating Element should be checked. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
