Question about Kenmore 62602 Electric Dryer
Sorry to hear about the dryer not heating. There are a few things that could cause this issue. I will list each of them here, if you have access to a volt ohmmeter I can walk you through how to determine exactly what is bad.
I would need the full model number from the tag just inside the unit for this.
These are the likely suspects as of now, in order of most likely to least likely:
-Improper voltage, the dryer only needs 120 for the motor, but needs 240 for the heating element to work, be sure both sides of the circuit breaker are on and not tripped, make sure the right power is going to L1 and L2 on the outlet at the wall behind the dryer (I can assist with checking this if you have a volt meter)
- Thermal Cut off, in addition to the thermal fuse there is a cut off that will trip if the venting or lint filter gets clogged. This cut off is located on the burner box just past the heat element and in series with the high limit thermostat
- Hi limit thermostat, this device is right next to the heater and can go bad
- Operating thermostat, this can fail open and cause no heat
- Timer, the heating contacts in the timer can be bad
- Motor, even with the motor running there is an internal switch that has to sense the motor is running, if this switch is bad it can cause a no heat
Let me know if you have the tester and we can go from there.
