How to replace a heating element on a Kenmore Elite Oasis ST dryer


Sounds like you need to replace the timer one the dryer not the element but to make sure I would do a little trouble shooting to rule out the element or heating coil turn on dryer cycle like normal for about 30 seconds then open the door to feel for heat if you do feel heat its your cycle/timer knob if you don't feel heat then it's the coil or element witch are the same also first always check your lint trap and ducts going outside the dryer make sure you have proper airflow through ducts vents. clogged vents ducts ect. Cause over heating of element coil causing a safety fuse to shut down heating coil/element but will not stop cycle also moisture censors detect moisture causing cycle to continue on hope this helps.

Problem with GE JKP45WOP1WG double oven


The control is faulty. Check the resistance of the sensor before replacing the control, it should be 1100 ohms at room temp. If it is not start with the sensor and if it is replace the control.

Heating element starts to work and then shuts down after about 5 seconds


You may have a thermal limit switch going bad. These devices are in line with the element to keep the dryer from getting too hot. If one of them is defective, it will shut the voltage off to the element. If you are able to, check the thermal limits and your element, using a volt meter in the ohms setting. If the meter reads open after you hold the leads across the switch terminals, replace the device.

Rex4634kq1 element only heats for about 30 seconds, i have cleaned complete lint housin, the element housing and the exhaust tube, all of them checked out fine. what sensor need replace


Most possible that the thermostat , the thermocouple , is faulty or the control unit is sensing the temperature in advance to quit.
You might have to start with the sensor - the thermocouple- check if after cooling the thermocouple the heating works, Next check on the timer controller, If there is a timing loss then it is possible that the controller is shutting off the heater. you might have to access and check the reason for the immediate shut down, if so the malfunction can be this unit.

The Dryer is starting, but shuts off after 10-15mins. It seems to be very hot. Is there an overheating element or something that can be easily replaced?


This certainly sounds like an overheating element. The problem is that the element is working. Something is allowing the element to get too hot. Then your over-limit switch is sensing the fire hazard and shutting down the system. Safety in action.
I suspect your blower fan is not running. This fan keeps the heating element from over heating by blowing the heat to the clothes in the drum. This is easily checked. The very next time you attempt to dry a load, start it and go to the exhaust vent outside. Put your hand close to it. See if it is blowing air or not. No air blowing = shut down in 10 minutes.
The blower motor should not be too hard to replace. Surely easier than the element itself. Before you pull the motor, use a multimeter to confirm that power is getting to the motor first. Power yes, motor running no, replace it.
Could also be something simple, like a wire broken or pulled off of the motor. That is why you check first. Good luck

Roper Dryer not Drying


Get a thermostat and place it in the exhaust. The thermostat should reach 160 and then shut down and drop to 120 F and start back heating to 160 again on cotton setting. You should hear an audible click when the thermostat opens and closes. If the dryer is clear of lint and blockages then change the control thermostat which is mounted on the blower housing.
