The fuse is located in the dryer fan/blower wheel cover and is a one time fuse, which means it is not resettable. I did a look up for the kenmore model # that you gave and I cannot find your model listed. If you go to parts.com and do a search for your dryer you will be able to see all the drawings on your dryer. You will be able to find the replacement part # and how to get to it. Test your fuse to check if it is open if it is, then replace the fuse. There is also a temperature sensor on the back wall of the dyer drum (it is a small metal circle close to the exhaust outlet). Sometimes there is simply a build up of fabric softener residue on them that stops the dryer from heating up. Clean the sensor with an alcohol wipe.
Hope this helps and don't forget to get all the lint out of the dryer before putting it back in service.

We replaced both thermal fuse and the two pack of internal thermostats and the dryer runs without heating. . . which means that our problem is only 1/2 fixed because before we did this, it wouldn't even come on. Found on www.repairclinic.com that if the unit runs but doesn't heat (on an electric model) then it could also be the heating element, wiring that has burned out part but not all of the wiring, or one of the two fuses or circuit breakers from the house (dryers use 2) was blown or tripped. After checking these things, we think we've got to replace a heating element. ugh

Remove the back panel off the dryer on the side of the pan holding the heating element you will see a small disc with two wires on it thats the thermal fuse if your going to check it with a meter remove one wire first its a non resetable fuse

My dyer heats and tumbles, but doesn't dry


I'd check first for clogged vent hose or clogged lint filter or clogged vent flap on wall (outside).

If that's not a problem, it may be a faulty thermostat. Heating element is probably okay if it heats some of the time.

More info, let me know.

Dyer is not heating up.it turns on and runs but it just does not heat up i took off hose and clean . also looked in back of dyer by taking off clover to look for fuse please help .


Kenmore dryers have what we call a thermo fuse, usually on top on the burner area - I would check continuity on this unit and replace if nesessary.
If the thermo fuse is okay and dryer heats up with gas, check your igniter and/or gas unit coils.
If dryer heats up with electric elements check continuity at both element ends and/or high limit thermostat.

GOOD LUCK!

My Whirlpool Duet Dryer is not heating up. Unit is only Two year


If it is a gas dryer. Sounds like thermal fuse. It costs about $12.95. Most appliance part stores carry it all the time. Very easy to replace. Also can be ignition switch (also cheap). If you know someone who is mechancally inclined, after removing fuse,they can run an electrical jumper cord to the two open ends. If the dryer begins drying, then it is definitely the fuse.
Go to Whirpool site and get part number and diagram to fix. Maytag repair can help at a costly figure after they order part since Whirpool bought Maytag.

Takes too long to dry clothes


Check the dryer venting from the dryer to where it exits the house. It is most likely coated with lint and needs to be cleaned out.
