Kenmore gas dryer model 110 775 42600 won't heat what is wrong


ELECTRIC Dryer no heat or little heat:

Check your venting and lint basket. Check blower for lint build up and blower wheel obstruction., test by trying to turn the wheel manually by hand (should be easy) May have to remove cabinet or front/back plate to get to it)

Next check the heating element itself with a meter for continuity OHMS CLOSED CIRCUIT. If not its defective.

Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage. 220 because if u only get half or 110 volts you will be able to run the machine which uses only 110 to run motor but not the heater which uses a full 220,

Check the thermal cut off, the cycling and the hi limit thermostats.
For continuity or OHMS. If no ohms or resistance they need replacement.

Lastly check your moister sensor. ( located inside the dryer door usually) Especially if machine seems to shut down early and clothes are still wet.
Test with a meter at room temperature and it should show continuity.

Kenmore 90 series gas dryer - motor not running


Trace the wiring all the way to the motor through the door switch, timer, etc. Also do this test: If you hear the motor hum (even a little bit) but not run, your starter switch on the motor is fried. This is a replaceable item. (This switch also turns on the heating element.) . Dryers have the peculiar problem with corroded contacts in gang plugs or other plugs. Best thing you could do is unplug and plug them several times then smather some contact grease on each contact. This will eliminate this pesky problem in the future.
