Could be the thermal fuse or the heat element to start with.  also, check to make sure you have 220v at the outlet

Kenmore elite he4 moder 110 won't heat


In terms of likelihood, here is what's wrong:
1) The heating element has failed.
2) One of the several "overheat thermostats" has overheated and failed.
These are found in the back or the bottom of the dryer in the rear.
3) One of the wires to something, like the heating element, has burned in two.
4) The panel where the electric cord attached to the back of the dryer has failed. This will be inside the back of the dryer, usually behind a small plate.
5) The circuit breaker for the "heating" circuit wire of your dryer is popped and needs to be reset. (That is the circuit breaker found in your hall, or basement, or garage, or wherever.)
If you decide to fix it yourself, a question to "fixya" might get you step-by-step instructions.
Be blessed

Why won't my dryer heat up?


There are several reasons for no heating on a Tumble Dryer. The heating element could be faulty ( open circuit.) There are several thermal cut outs which can also go open circuit The only way to check is with a Multi Meter by a qualified service engineer.

Kenmore electric dryer, no heat model #417.83142201


You can check if you have a feed to the element with a voltmeter or a light bulb test lamp while the m/c is running if you have power its the heater element.
if not ,temporary short out the thermostat and run the m/c if this brings on the power its the thermostat.
You have well covered all the other possibilities so the best of luck

Hi i have a He3 kenmore elite dryer. It runs but is not heating up. I checked the circuit breaker and that is ok, and i made sure all the lint is cleaned out, and that the exhaust vent is not crushed and...


Either the heating element is bad, or the flap in the venting itself that is supposed to close when heating occurs is not closing or stuck open

My Kenmore Elite (Whirlpool) HE3 elctric dryer is no


A dryer not heating usually means that either the heating element is burned/broken (open circuit); a thermal fuse in line with the heating element is blown or; a thermostat is faulty.

Dryer needs to be partially disassembled to diagnose with a multimeter.

It got too much lint in it and the heat shut off. I cleaned out the lint but don't know how to get the heat back on.


Thermostat controls heat. There is also a

motor centrifulgal switch, in the element

circuit, that the motor closes to insure

the motor is turning. Try another heat

setting. There is more than one

thermostat. You may have blown the

'thermal fuse' too, which requires

replacement.
It is possible that your element has

failed also.

Tripped high limit. Must clean the lint

filter and the exhaust vent tube and all

the way in to the dryer. Hot air exit is

restricted.

If this is a Kenmore Elite front loader, taking the back off isn't going to tell you much. The heating element is inside the dryer under the drum on the right hand side. More than likely you have an accumulation of lint on the heating element housing and its beginning to smolder. Running the dryer on low will not change the fact that you have lint in close proximity to a glowing element. It will still burn. Here is a link you can look at that gives you some advice on dryers:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385301-thorough_dryer_advice

You will need to unplug the dryer and remove the lower panel under the door to gain access to the heating circuits. If you have lint backing up into the dryer, you need to investigate why. If its been a while since you've inspected your dryer ventilation ducting, it would probably be a good idea to do so. Everything is in the link I provided for you. I hope this helps.

PS Conitued running of a dryer in this condition can cause the heating circuits to overheat and fail and/or cause a fire.

Dryer runs but doesn't heat up when sttings call for heat.


You may need to do some troubleshooting. This can be done with the machine unplugged - you may have to activate the start switch, belt switch (if it has one) and the motor centrifugal switch manually.
Tip for troubleshooting 220v systems - clip one lead of a ohm meter to either L1 or L2 on the terminal block. It doesn't matter which one. According to the tech sheet (under console) follow the path for current from your clipped terminal, through the heating element, to the opposite terminal. All the readings should be less than 100 ohms, until you reach the failed part. Confirm failure by disconnecting a lead from the suspected part, and test only that part.

Live troubleshooting is sometimes slightly easier, but much more dangerous than the procedure described above. - It is definitely not recommended for beginners, or for professionals, if it can be avoided.
