Question about Kenmore HE5 Electric Dryer
The repair manual you are looking for is not available online but you my
call Whirlpool at 866-698-2538 and order a repair manual for the
Whirlpool counterpart of your dryer. Whirlpool manufactures appliances
for Kenmore and that includes your dryer. The repair manuals for
appliances made by Whirlpool for Kenmore are identical with Whirlpool
appliances repair manuals.
I understand that your dryer is not heating and that's why you want to purchase a heating element. It is not advised to order or purchase a heating element without checking first the continuity of the heating circuit components. The continuity of the heating element, hi-limit thermostat, and the thermal cut-off before ordering a part. Both parts are located on the heater housing and can be accessed through the toe panel. Remove the screws attaching the toe panel to the bottom flange of the cabinet then slide the panel down and off. Remove the hex-head screw from the heater shield on the right hand side of the cabinet and remove the shield. You now have access the to heating element, hi-limit thermostat, and the thermal cut-off. Here is the tech sheet for your dryer and it is almost as good as a repair manual.
