Question about Kenmore 62602 Electric Dryer
What are the most common heater element and fuses for 5+ year old
Kenmore electric dryer?????
If you own a multimeter, i would suggest to disconnect the dryer from the power outlet and go directly to the area where the heating element is located and measure it. Also check for a thermal fuse and check it for continuity.
Here are some instructions on how to get to the heating element.

First look to see if the ignitor is coming on. Most common problem is the ignitor is weak or just bad.
When the power is applied to the ignitor it glows and builds up resistance to open the gas valve then it lights. If the ignitor is weak or bad it will not build up enough resistance for gas to come into the burner.
One sign of this would be a "woosh" sound when it trys to light. If the ignitor is coming on but not lighting it is most likely the ignitor is bad.
Should have a full glow. Also, if the ignitor looks whiteish in color this is a sign of it going bad. You can compare to the broil ignitor to be sure.
There are 50/50 chances of thermal fuse blowinf up which does not heat.Regarding the thermal fuse I would recommend to replace it one more time and not to use the Self clean any more until you will perform all checks and repairs according to the service pointer. The thermal fuse is located at the back of the oven..
You can check about the pica and description of it over HERE
And one more thing if used the broil method you also have to replace the broil heating element due to low resistance.
So finally i just want to say replace the broil element and the thermal fuse and your problem will be solved.
