Hi


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.


Thanks
Rylee

I have a 5 year old Sears Kenmore dryer that won't offer heat


This is an electric heated device?

Do you use fabric softener sheets in your machine? If yes, have you tried cleaning the sensor? Look on the back wall for a sensor. Check with Sears for specific instructions.

4 years old is not new! you took a risk by not taking out extended warranty and it didnt come off. sorry to be unsympathetic but a fault after 4 years is not unreasonable
