Kenmore dryer blows cold air. I replaced heat element still no luck? model 96263800


It doesn't necessarily mean the heating element is busted when an electric dryer stops heating. The heating circuit is not just composed solely by the heating element, it is composed by the thermal cut-off, high-limit thermostat, cycling thermostat, motor centrifugal switch, and the timer. The first thing to look at when an electric dryer stops heating is the thermal cut-off. It cuts power to the heating element when it blows most likely due to the failure of the high-limit thermostat. The thermal cut-off must be replaced, together with the high-limit thermostat, if found open. Click on the link below for the detailed instructions in troubleshooting this problem.

Replaced element and thermostats still blowing cold on my whirlpool dryer


Hello,
Did you replace the safety thermostat I dont know the model dryer you have but on most condensor dryers you would find it at the front bottom right hand side behind a small plastic grid which normally has one screw fixing you can remove this panel and normally get access to this t/stat. you could either test with a meter or link it out just to prove it is the fault.
Hope This helps.

My dryer only blows cold air I replaced the


Yes it is quite possibly your thermostats, A kit can be purchased for the majority of all Whirlpool dryers and is around $30.00 part number is LA-1053. But it can vary based on your model. However the first place i would have technician check is the fuses or breakers inside your home as this can often cause the dryer to only run on 110v when 220v is need to run both the motor and the element.Hope this helps.

Thanks

Dryer runs but will not heat. Replaced fuse and


your cycling thermostat needs changed too. the thermal fuse is your last safety measure that goes, which means your cycling thermostat is not shutting down the heat element once it detects the right temp hot air in the blower housing so it let the heat element glow until either the high-limit sensor shuts the heat down or the thermal fuse blows. Change the cycling thermostat and good luck

WHIRLPOOL DRYER MODEL LEQ8858JQO


Thermostat, High limit and low limit thermostat or even a safety Temp limiter. All three are similar in cost and located on the back inside of the dryer and 1 by the airflow tube under the lint trap.
