Kenmore dryer does not heat

Find a volt-ohm meter you can use.
Unplug the dryer and test the socket on the wall or on the floor for current. If If you have a 3 pronged socket, the two slanted slots should have 110 volts each, and the "L'' shaped slot is your ground.
If you have a 4 pronged socket, the two straight slots are 110 volts each, and the "L" shaped and the round slots are grounded.
If you do not have 110 volts showing on both slots, you likely have a blown circuit-breaker to reset at your fuse box.

Depending on the year of the dryer, you have the following things to check inside the back of your dryer.
Wiring, for burnt or broken wires, the heating element for a broken wire, and 2,3,4, or 5 thermostats.
Unplug your dryer and remove the back so you can see all the wires and the above parts.
One at a time, remove the wires from each thermostat and see if the thermostst is blown.
You can tell by setting the volt-ohm meter to ohm's resistance, that's the "Infinity" sign.
Check the heating element the same way.
If the thermostat and heating element are good, the needle will go up on the meter. If one is bad, the needle on the meter will remain motionless.
Each of the thermostats and the heating element are removeable, and replaceable.
Be blessed.

Or all blower motors on electric kenmore 80 series 220 or 110 current

Speaking of these United States, here's how that goes.
In this country, dryers are called 220, but they are really 110 twice!
So, on the back of the dryer is a plug with 3 or 4 prongs.
( hope you can get this from my description. )
On a 3 prong plug, the two "slanted" prongs are each hooked to 110 volt p service.
The "L" shaped prong is a ground.

If you have a 4 pronged plug, the two flat straight prongs are 110 volt each, and the "L" shaped and the round prong are both grounded.

FYI: Each of the 110 volt wires has a different function. One powers the motor, the other the heating element.
Be Blessed.

Need to hook 230 volts to car lift

this is 2 ---110 volt power feed lines & a neutral ( ground ) 3 wires all together , a second redundent ground won't hurt -----the same power feed as a stove or dryer .make sure to use at least 10 -- 8 gauge stranded wire / check the product requirements ---thicker wire ( smaller gauge number ) for more amprage or loner distance...will also need two 15--30 amp circuit breakers///// check specs......

I just moved. my dryer didnot dry very well at the

If it is a portable dryer, then the vent hose must be exhausted to the outside. 110 volt dryers don't have much capacity since the circuit can only safely handle up to 1500 watts.

If it is not a portable dryer, please consider other experts' solutions.

Blowing breaker

hi. I can help you.

Electric dryers use 220 volts or two power lines of 110 volts each. Some components in the dryer need only 110 volts; the heating element requires 220 volts. So it's possible for one part of the dryer to be fine and another part to have a short circuit. Short circuits can be caused by the heating element, the main power cord, or any other part of the internal wiring. To decide where the problem lies, unplug the dryer, then:

  • If the circuit breakers or fuses remain on and/or intact when the dryer is unplugged, it's likely the problem is with the dryer. Contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

  • If the circuit breaker trips or the fuse blows when the dryer is unplugged, it's likely the problem is with the house wiring, fuse box, or circuit box. Contact a qualified electrician.
