    Forgot to mention this is a gas dryer. But, I did find a thermostat in the lower right corner which is open.
    Local parts store has them on back order, so it will be a few more days before I know if this solves the problem.

    Thanks for the quick response.

Repalcing the heating element or thermostat. Small access panel on lower right side back of dryer will allow you to change these components out and be well on your way. Good luck.

Replaced all parts for dryer because of no heat dryer runs drum turns had breaker and wiring going into dryer everything ok still no heat could wires be backwards going to replacement parts?


Electric dryers have as many as three thermal fuses. See if you might have missed one. One next to coils, one next to drum and one near the lint trap at air outlet. All three have different trip settings.

I have a Kenmore 800 model no. 110.69822801 dryer that stopped during a drying cycle. It would not start. I found helpful tips from your site and decided the door switch was faulty. I bought a new switch...


Check the thermal fuse, check the belt switch. If these are OK, check the timer. The timer troubleshooting guide may be located within the control panel. If the dryer still doesn't turn on, check motor winding continuity, and finally control board. Perform these checks with dryer unplugged. Most likely causes: Thermal fuse or timer. If thermal fuse is problem, clean dryer duct after fuse replacement.

Replaced timer 696896 still does not move


It is most likely your thermal fuse. Check continunity with the thermal fuse disconnected. Otherwise it could be your door switch.

I have a mid 90's Kenmore electric dryer with no heat and no model #. I bought the set used I have replaced the drum belt and door sensor with luck and the old parts. Can you check this deflector part...


Hi sjh41 shirl...
Open your door and look on the main frame of the dryer, your tag with all the numbers should be in the area where the door seal will go.
*********************************************
Here are a few things to check:
ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Check to make sure you are getting full 220 Volt power to the dryer, if you are then:
Check your Wiring
Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. If this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the wire is attached.
Check the Door Switch
If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. Check for continuity you should have none with door open, and should have a reading when closed. If not replace the door switch.
Check to make sure you heating problem is not a lint build up in the discharge hose or the dryer,as this condition can cause heater/thermistor problems such as overheating of the heating coil leading to failure of the coil and burnout of the thermostat/thermistor due to overheat.
Remove the back/or front just under the door of the machine and try to locate the air duct going from the blower to the drum. Normally inside/outside the air duct you will find the heating coil and the thermostats/thermistors. Once you have located the heating coil, remove the two wires from it and check the coil with an ohm meter across the two terminals of the coil.
You should read continuity across the terminals, if not you will need to replace the coil as it is faulty.
If the heating coil is ok, then:
You can check the thermostat/thermistor/thermal fuse one at a time by removing the two wires and taping them together with electrical tape.
If the coil heats up then replace the thermostat/thermistor/thermal fuse as it is faulty.
If you have an ohm meter then you can test the thermostat/thermistor/thermal fuse,
then you do not have to tape the wires together as described above.
To test your thermostat/thermistor/thermal fuse remove the wires from the thermostat/thermistor/thermal fuse and check for continuity, if you DO NOT have continuity then replace the thermostat/thermistor/thermal fuse.
DO NOT LEAVE THE WIRES TAPED TOGETHER AFTER THE TEST AS THIS COULD CAUSE A FIRE BECAUSE YOU HAVE REMOVED THE SAFETY.
Check your blower wheel to make sure it is secure to the shaft and not plugged with lint,socks,etc.
If the thermal fuse overheats the dryer will not operate. It's located on the blower housing. It cannot be reset.
You can test it with an Ohm meter or continuity checker, remove both wires from the thermal fuse and put the test probes to each of the ends of the thermal fuse, if no continuity then replace the thermal fuse.
A vent clogged with lint can cause it to overheat.
Right after replacing a dryer element, always run the dryer on 'air fluff' / 'no heat', and go outside to verify there's plenty of air coming out your vent system.
If the vent's clogged, that new element can burn out very quickly.

When I push the start button on my kenmore dryer it will not start and the drum will not turn


Several part failures can cause this symptom: bad start switch, bad door switch, broken belt, bad timer, bad thermal fuse, etc.

Most likely, the door switch or start switch is the problem.

Unplug the dryer! Check the door switch for continuity, when the door is closed, with a multimeter. If it does not have continuity when the door is closed, replace it. The start switch should have continuity only when it is pressed or rotated (as if trying to start the machine).

Dryer does'nt run. checked breaker, thermal fuse, starter relay, timer stops when door is opened, starts when closed?


2 more things could be wrong,check the blower box to see if you have a thermister thermostat on it,check that with your omns meter,the other thing is the motor is no longer strong enough to turn the drum and it heat up and tips off,let me know what you find-mike

Kenmore Dryer - no heat and timer doesn't stop


First turn off both breakers then back on. Next, check the wiring from the receptacle to the plug to the back of the dryer. Next, the thermal switch under the top of the dryer next to or near the drum may be bad. Bypass it and see if you get heat. If so, then replace it for about $20. Your heating element may be bad also. You can visually check it and see if it is burned in 2. Now your timer is probably bad. They are easy to replace and fairly inexpensive.
I guess after looking at all this, you need to decide if it is all worth it to fix it. If it is more than 10-12 years old, you may be seeing the beginning of the end. If the thermal switch, the element, the timer are all bad, you may want to make room at the curve and take the door off for safety. Dryers aren't that expensive especially when you consider the hassle. Good luck and let me know how and what you do.

My Dryer will not start. Model 110.62802100 Kenmore


Does the drum turn when you press Start? If so, the motor is not bad.

I am having trouble finding a wiring diagram, but I can not find a moisture sensor in the parts listing. BUT, there should not be any wires just dangling, unless the are tagged as to their purpose.

I suspect one of the following (if the drum turns)-
1) Failed thermostat
2) Failed thermal fuse on heat elements
3) Failed over temp thermostat
4) Failed heat element

Please reply your findings and we can help further.

Kenmore 62822 electric dryer


Check your heating element to see if it is shorted to ground.
The element has 110V to it all the time, so if the element shorts to ground it will heat all the time. This is a fairly common failure.

If the element is ok, you may have a stuck centrifigul switch inside the motor, this is very rare but does happen sometimes.

Post back to let me know what you find or if you have any questions.
Thanks/Mike
