Question about Kenmore Dryers
MY DRYER IS ONLY ONE YEAR OLD (IN ACTUAL USE) IT'S A KENMORE, BOUGHT AT SEARS ABOUT 4-5 YEARS AGO. IT IS USED EVERY DAY ALL DAY NOW---FOR A CARE HOME------TWICE IT HAS STOPPED HEATING------IS IT SHUTTING OFF BECAUSE IT OVERHEATS? THE STAFF , I THINK, OVERLOAD IT. hELP!!!!
Thanks for using FixYa. It seems to be the issue with the Thermal Fuse going bad and needs to be replaced. It is mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. Also, often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
