Kenmore elite electric dryer runs but then gets hot and then shuts off, replaced thermal fuse, dryer vent and tubing not plugged, dryer runs gets hot blows thermal fuse again.


DRYER OVERHEATING:

Heating Element
A defective heating element can make a dryer too hot. If the element partially shorts out, it can produce heat all the time, regardless of whether the dryer is calling for heat. Remove the heating element to inspect it. The coils should not be touching each other or anything else.

Other Causes and Conditions
Air Flow Problem
Dryers need good ventilation to work properly. If the vent is clogged it can make the dryer too hot. Clean all of the vent tubing thoroughly.

Cycling Thermostat
Although not common, a defective cycling thermostat can make the dryer too hot. The cycling thermostat is supposed to turn on and off the heat to maintain the proper temperature. If the thermostat is defective it may keep the heat on too long. The thermostat is not adjustable or repairable, it must be replaced.

Felt Seal
Most dryers have a felt seal at the front and rear of the drum to keep the heat inside the drum. If the felt seal is worn away or missing, the dryer may keep heating and make the dryer too hot. This is not common.

Blower Wheel
A defective blower wheel will not spin properly and will not vent the hot air, making the dryer too hot. Check to see if there is adequate airflow out of the dryer.

I have a Kenmore dryer Model 1.10 60902990 that keeps tripping the thermal cut-off fuse (part #3398671 or substitution part #279769) after running for about 5 minutes. I have checked the high limit...


this will keep popping if the dryer is running to hot,if the cycling thermostat is bad the dryer can do this or something is blocking the air flow.if you have a long vent line most likely this is the problem,also you have to remove the metal duct that the lint filter slides down into and clean that out.if your vent line is long try running the dryer with the vent line removed from the back of the dryer,also when you remove the vent line stick a leaf blower into the vent line and blow it out to the outside,but like i say all a dryer does is move air and if the air doesn't move out of the dryer and it runs to hot the t-stat will blow as a safetygo here and check out the cycling thermostat http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Cycling-Thermostat/8318268/904589#repairHelpVideoTabs
and replace the 279769 and try running it with the vent line off the back of dryer,also when you take off the metal duct that the lint filter slides into spin the drum and make sure the blower wheel is spinning,if the blower wheel is bad and can't move air this can happen but usually something is in the vent line.let me know what you find,thanks

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.

Will not heat while running gas kenmore all cycles run but no heat


First remove the vents ductwork totally and clean if neccessary. The dryer has a moister sensor that shuts the heat off. If the vent is clogged full of lint it will shut down causing your problem. If the vent has a clean flow through it the sensor is at fault

Clothes Arent Drying


Try running a load without the venting connected. Your venting may be plugged. If that isn't it, check the heat element. Inspect it for a break. It may heat partially if it is broken and touching the housing. Hope this helps!
