Not a complete model number but most kenmores have a white thermal limit on the blower housing that shuts it down in case of overheat. They can wear out over time. If thats not it schematic should be under control panel.

Where can I get the schematic for my Kenmore dryer 110.73952101

the schematics sheet is under the head unit of the dryer where the timer is. In some dryers, the ones with the bottom front tray, you can find it in an envelope along side the wall of the dryer.

Won't heat

There could be a number of different reasons for your drier not to be heating. You could start off with making sure your getting 240v to your drier. Then you could check the lint trap outside your house to make sure its not clogged. If all is good you will now have to take apart the drier and with a ohm meter check several parts. Heating element, burnt wire, limit switches, and a few others depending on the model. If your familiar with troubleshooting you can find a schematic on your drier and go from there. If not I would recommend you having a technician to come and check it.

Kenmore electric dryer,elite,model # 110.87892601 has a code on panel, F70. won't do anything,just keeps "dinging" and code keeps flashing.

F70 code is a loss of communication between the machine control board and the console. Usually the machine control board is the cause.

Before you do anything to troubleshoot do the following. Take a hand held hair dryer and dry off the keypad area making sure NOT to over heat the area. Moisture from condensation gets into the keypad and causes it to stop working and you get your beep. It takes a while but in 10 to 15 minutes after you started the drying process try starting the dryer

A tech that does not know about this will change the over $300.00 machine control board and you still have the same problem. I would insist they install my board again!
Watch the video at the bottom of this post:

Sometimes when a heating element fails it will also trip just ONE dryer Circuit Breaker. Reset the CB by pushing it hard to OFF and then back to ON. If the CB trips as soon as you try to start it the heating element is probably grounded to the holding fixture. If it works now with no heat the heating element has failed. (Rare but this does happen)

IF drying out the keypad did not correct the problem, most often it is either the machine control board or the motor that fails.

My Bosch Axxis 5410 dryer won't start. The time lights up and the status light says drying, but the dryer doesn't start. There's a little dot on the lower right hand of the time remaining which hadn't...

This type of diagnosis will require accessing the internal components & making voltage & resistance checks with a volt/ohm meter. There are several different components that could cause this symptom & yes it is possible that the door switch is bad. This model of dryer should only be worked on by an experienced, trained technician due to all of the electronic controlled parts. richroth_121.jpg

Power Button will not turn on.

Verify proper line voltage is present at the outlet. This will require the use of a voltage meter. If not properly trained, I would consult an electrician to verify the voltage.
Part of the troubleshooting proceedure requires the technician to verify that the applience is receiving the required supply power.
This has to be verified at the outlet to eliminate the possibility of a bad breaker or bad connection inside the breaker panel or outlet box.
Hope this helps in finding the solution to your problem..
Thanks and good luck..

44 flashes if the motor control detects a low voltage condition.
This error code could also be caused by poor air flow, loose wiring harness or a malfunction of the electronic control board.

You can disconnect the vent hose from the back of the dryer & compare that airflow to the airflow at the outside damper, they should be almost the same.

If you have a multimeter and the ability to safely check the voltage at the dryer outlet, you can check for 120 volts at the outlet for the dryer.

If the voltage is low or drops when the dryer is running, this is causing your problem.
You could have a loose wiring connection.

If the outlet voltage is okay, you could have a wiring connection problem between the outlet and the control board of the dryer.

The following link explains the proper wiring scheme for installing a 220VAC power cord to an appliance:

Make sure you also have a dedicated outlet and power source for your dryer. This means a single outlet with a single circuit breaker. Most homes are constructed this way to ensure safe operation of the appliance and to prevent improper loading. If you have questions, please let me know.

As far as a wiring diagram is concerned, most manufacturers place a schematic drawing inside the operator console of the appliance for troublshooting purposes. I hope this helps.
