WHIRLPOOL DRYER WONT HEAT


1st thing is to reset the house breaker for the dryer, it is a 220 volt breaker, the dryer only needs 110 volts to run but needs 220 to heat, so the breaker can be partially tripped which will only allow for it to run but not heat. If that is good make sure where the cord attaches to dryer terminal block isn't burnt up, you can lose 220 there as well. If you have 220 to the dryer then you either have a bad element or thermal cutout located on the element with the hi limit thermostat, those parts can be tested for continuity out of operating condition

Kenmore Dryer 300 Series No heat , I check continuity to all parts , it ok , but still no heat on dryer What's wrong?


What is the model number?
Exactly which parts did you check?
Also, check the breakers. The breakers are 220 and one of them may have thrown not allowing it to heat but the dryer will run.

My 70 series dryer the heating element is not working. I checked the heating coil for continuity and it is holding 12 ohms, the fuse has continuity and it has power. Flipped the breaker to se If that was...


your voltage is not right as it should be 220 volts, check the outlet to see if you have 220 if you do then its the cord, if not then it is either the outlet or the breaker-panel, to check panel remove panel and test both legs of the breaker you should have 220 if not then replace the 30 amp breaker.

Drum turns, air blows but element does not heat up. Circuit breaker panel shows one untripped double breaker for dryer. With dryer running can see 120v coming from control and passing thru sensors (1)...


The element will probably show near-zero resistance and be good. You need 220 volts from the breaker pair--check with an AC voltmeter--and at the two slanted blades in the power socket. If only one breaker in the pair is good, it can show your symptoms. Hope this helps!

Dryer rotates, but there is zero heat. Kenmore Series 80, model 0104806


First check your breakers in the power box to the house. If one the the legs is tripped, the cylinder will turn but will not heat. Next, check the thermostat switches near the heating element for continuity. If no continuity, replace them. Check heating element for continuity. If no continuity, replace.

Kenmore dryer not heating


The following link explains how to troubleshoot a dryer no heat problem:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r630242-dryer_runs_but_not_heat

First, begin by unplugging the dryer and verifying the voltage at the wall receptacle. You should read 220-240VAC across the two Hot terminals (left and right slots). If the voltage is incorrect, check to make sure you don't have a breaker tripped. Some homes use 2 separate 120VAC breakers to provide power to the receptacle vice using one 240VAC breaker.

If the voltage IS correct, leave the dryer unplugged and remove the cover plate on the terminal block in the back of the dryer (this is where the power cord is installed). Plug the dryer back in and take a voltage reading across the two hot (RED and BLACK) wires at the terminal block. You should read 220-240VAC. If the voltage is good, you have an internal heating problem. If the voltage is bad at the terminal block, but good at the receptacle, you have a bad power cord.

The reason a dryer will still run if the input voltage is incorrect, is because the drive motor only uses a portion of the 220 service. The motor runs off 110-120VAC, while the heating circuits require 220-240VAC. So, if you are missing 1/2 your input voltage due to a tripped breaker or bad power cord, your dryer will exhibit these symptoms.

If you determine the problem to be internal, the heating circuits will either be located in the rear of the washer on the right hand, or under the dryer drum on the right hand side. I would need a model number from you to be more accurate. All Kenmore dryers are not contructed the same. The Heating Element is located inside the heater box. The Thermal Cut-Out (TCO) will be located on the outside of the heater box on the end opposite the heating element terminals. The Hi-Limit Thermostat will be located adjacent to the heating element terminals. If either the TCO or Hi-Limit Thermostat are determined to be bad, replace both components at the same time. That is why these components are commonly sold as a set. Failure to do so may result in premature failure of any parts you replace. All these parts can be found at appliancepartspros.com, searspartsdirect.com, pcappliancerepair.com, or repairclinic.com.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Our Kenmore model 96292810 clothes dryer has stopped heating. What is the likely problem?


Check the following to address this issue.




1. No power to the dryer(If you have power, skip to the next possible issue)
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses. An electric dryer uses two circuit breakers or fuses, and if only one of two is tripped or blown, the dryer might still run but not heat. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

2. Heating element
A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Kenmore dryer makes no heat


replace the heating element. Or the control panel has weakening capacitor not sending correct current flow to the heating element

Dryer does not heat


Verify 220 volts at the terminal block where the cord attaches.
Also, 120 volts from each leg to neutral at the same check point.
Check the thermal fuse at the top of the heat element canister for continuity.
Check the high limit switch at the heater terminals for continuity.
