Remove the lower front panel. There will be a tech sheet in a plastic bag on a side. Make sure to return it back in the bag for future reference if service is needed.

    Remove the bottom panel in front and there will be a tech sheet in a plastic sleeve along the side. Mame sure to replace it when finished for reference if service is required in the future.

The following link explains how to correctly install a power cord to your dryer:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3575913-installing_a_220_vac_appliance_cord

Homes built after the year 2000 require the use of a 4-prong power cord and usually have a 4-wire outlet installed. If your home was built prior to that, you can continue to use whatever configuration you have.

Pay particular attention to how the neutral (WHITE) and ground (GREEN or BARE COPPER) wires are terminated between the 3 and 4 wire configurations. In a 3-wire configuration, ground and neutral are connected together at the terminal block. In a 4-wire configuration they are independent of each other.

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

Dryer was working perfectly then just stopped working. I am getting the proper voltage from the house. Can you suggest a good place for me to start - door switch, thermal fuse? Thanks in...


Either one of the two that you suggested is the good way to start with. For that you need to access the back panel. Inside the you will find the schematic. Follow the schematic from the power input, so you can find where it is cut off. Most of the time, it is the relay to turn on the machine. The moment you press the start button, if the dryer has all safety signal met as door switch, thermal fuse, then the relay will engage then hold on to that so power can be continuing on until any of safety requirement breaks off. If the relay is not engage, then you can see it is not operated.

Bought new timer for Prodigy but thought i set the wires from the old timer in proper sequence but doesnt work so maybe wrong wires on wrong terminals


Look at the wires. They have markings on them that match the markings on the timer. Did you check the Non-resetable limit? If it is open the dryer will not run.89819b0.jpg

The following link explains how to properly connect the power cord to your dryer:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3575913-installing_a_220_vac_appliance_cord

Pay particular attention to WHICH configuration you have. Your power cord will either be a 3-wire or 4-wire configuration. NOTE: If the wires are not color coded, the outer two wires (left and right) will be the HOT leads. The center conductor is the neutral.

If you're new home is equipped with a 4-wire outlet, you are required to update the dryer to a 4-prong power cord to be in compliance with the National Electic Code.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Dryer comes on and blow but there is no heat, do I need to replac


Check the electic first. Check the thermal limit fuse. clean the machine of all lint. If the coil is bad you will see it is broken (burnt in two).

Kenmore dryer turns on and operates without heat?


Is this an electic dryer? If so, the heating elements run on 220 volts and the dryer motor runs on 110. Check your fuse panel and make sure the fuses have not blown. Then check the outlet at the dryer and make certain you have 220 volts at the receptical.
If that checks out OK, you may have to check the circuit to the heating coils in the back as well as the coils them selves. There are also heat sensors located near the coils that will prevent them from coming on if it get too hot or the sensor is bad.
You can go to the Sears parts web site and get the parts diagram using your dryer diagram. There is an electrical schematic on the back of the dryer that will help you track down the circuit.
Good luck, let me know.
Regards,
