Tip

How to change the Heating Element in a Kenmore Elite Electric Dryer?


If the dryer is running but not heating,then the heating element needs to be replaced. The procedure is as follows:--- 1) First of all unplug the dryer from wall outlet.
2) Remove the front service panel of the dryer.
3) After the front service panel is removed. You will see the heating element wires and heat shield.
4) Remove the heat shield by plucking the wires out from the heat shield.
5) Also remove the screws holding the heating element.
6) The heating will have to be moved a bit to come out easily. Before removing the heating element out. Please note down the position of old heating element. So while placing the new heating element you don’t face any problem.
7) Replace the element with a new element.
8) Refit all the parts removed while removing the old heating element properly.
These will help. Thanks.

Dryer does not heat up


Unplug the dryer. Look for blockage.4b24ab7.jpgIf you have air restrictions your heater element might be OK. 142c967.jpga4caa20.jpgIf all these components check good and you still don't have heat you might have a timer problem or an electrical problem. The timer has a leg going directly to the heater element. The load is high and overtime the contacts inside that timer get burntc97b4dc.jpgAnother thing it could be it the breaker. The motor runs on 120 volts. The heater however runs on 240 volts. If the breaker is worn on the heat load side then the dryer will work but their will be no heat.7e5d468.jpgIf it turns out to be a limit instead of the heater element then clean out the dryerd60b014.jpg8006b2f.jpgb57aa0b.jpg0fe9a0b.jpg3aea907.jpg2b993f6.jpgService manual for kenmore

I am sorry to hear this, my name is Marc White, i am self employed and it seems as though you have a bad timer, bad timer will cause the timer not to go to the off position and blow your fuse......change your timer..


thanks
