Dryer spins but no heat


Conventional dryers are usually accessed by removing the rear panel. I would think these would be the same. Unplug the dryer and remove wires from heating element. Test for continuity with an ohmmeter. If there is no reading, the heating element is bad. Disconnect wires from the hi temp thermostat and test with an ohmmeter and if no reading it is bad. Sears has these parts available.

My kenmore 7 series dryer will not heat after replacing the coils and Ingnit. please help


If the coils and ignition are correct, and you are 100% positive that that they are installed correctly. I would check the primary fuse, as well as the high and low limit switches and thermostat. There are instructions on the internet for testing and troubleshooting these. I had the same issue and it was a combination of a clogged vent tube (not behind the drier, but the stack to the roof and the thermostat was bad.

Kenmore Gas Clothes Dryer does not heat sufficiently


Ok, first and foremost, make sure your vent is clean and clear.
If the vent is clean and free of obstructions the most likely culprit is your gas valve coils. When they fail the typical symptom is heat at the beginning of the cycle and no heat about 20 minutes later.
If you can, post the complete model number from the dryer and I will give you step by step tear-down and replacement of parts instructions.

No heat in my stack-pak kenmore dryer. The element is ok and there are no broken cables/wires. 220 does come in to the unit and show up at the componets.


There is a thermal relay switch that is blown. Replace it.
Model number please and I will give you the part number.

Want to stack my Kenmore HE4 Dryer on top of my Kenmore HE3t W/M


When you originally ordered the dryer, it should've come with a stacking kit that is compatible with the HE 3T or HE 4T washer. It is basically a foam piece that goes on each side of the washer, and then the dryer is connected to it from the side. If you do not have this piece, it should be available to order if you visit http://www.searspartsdirect.com Just enter the model number from your dryer (inside the door frame) and it should pull up a parts list. Or just try searching for a stacking kit for Kenmore dryer. Hope this helps.
