Dear Sir/I have a Kenmore Ultra Fabric dryer that has stopped heating. How hard is it to replace the heating element and can a mechanically challenged person like myself do it? For example, what does the element look like? Help. Thank you.

The heating element is probably accessed through a removable panel on the back face of the dryer. The element looks not unlike the heating element in an electric oven, but smaller. After you remove the back panel, you may have to take apart the heating duct in which it resides, which can be tricky. Or you may be able to remove the bad heating element without removing and splitting the duct. Do you have a friend who is handy to help you?

My Lady Kenmore Ultra Fabric Care electric dryer model #86692100 abruptly stopped heating. Fuses are okay and venting is fine. Need troubleshooting information


Hi.

Test the heating element and the thermostat.

Both are tested using a multimeter to read impedance. Set multimeter at Rx1, on Ohms.

To test the element disconnect element and point tester probes at element contact.
If there is no continuity, and the circuit is open, then the element is faulty.

The thermostat can be tested jumping its wires to bypass it, but there are many safety concerns doing this kind of test.
Better disconnecting the thermostat and reading Ohms, as for the element.
At room temp the thermostat must have low impedance, if it goes to infinity, and circuit is open at room temperature, then the thermostat is bad.

If both test good, and you have no heating at all, then it may be a bad electronic control, or a wiring problem.

The model number you gave does not match.

Try Entering correct model number on this website to get parts and diagrams.

Regards.

I have a Kenmore ultra fabric care gas dryer, it was working fine. (I thought) Put in a load of clothes to dry and it works but won't heat at all. Need your help!!!


You'll have to have your heat element checked and your thermal fuse, if thermal fuse is bad you'll also have to replace the thermostat/s

Kenmore ultra fabric care dryer runs, but does not heat up Same as Christy's. Runs no heat, however, the exhaust vent is clear. Could this be the fuse or heating coil?


could be a thermal fuse,heating element or a heating element relay.if you pop the trim caps off of the sides of the console,and remove the 2 phillips screws in the corners and lift up console you will find a tech sheet inside.if you have a multimeter that you can check continuity with along with the tech sheet,you might be able to figure it out..good luck
