Question about Kenmore 62722 Electric Dryer
My Dryer has power spins the drum but only air drys (no heat). We can actually open the door and it will still spin meaning a faulty door switch. Would replacing the door switch fix the heating problem as well or is there something else I would need to do?

Well I know that older dryers came with a wiring schematic for where all the wires go, but yours may not. There is a lot of experimenting with dryers when it comes to diagnosing. I would say that it is very possible a door switch could cause that depending the position its stuck in. If no power is going through that switch then the heating elements may work off of whether that switch switch is operating or not. If your heating elements worked before this then I would have no doubt that they are working now. If the switch being replaced doesn't work I would then go and check for full voltage at your main terminals (120V per power wire and 240V across both of the wires)
