ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Check to make sure you are getting full 220 Volt power to the dryer, if you are then:
Sounds like your problem may be with the heating coil. Remove the back/or front just under the door of the machine and try to locate the air duct going from the blower to the drum. Normally inside/outside the air duct you will find the heating coil and the thermostats/thermistors. Once you have located the heating coil, remove the two wires from it and check the coil with an ohm meter across the two terminals of the coil.
You should read continuity across the terminals, if not you will need to replace the coil as it is faulty.
If the heating coil is ok, then:
You can check the thermostat/thermistor one at a time by removing the two wires and taping them together with electrical tape or with an ohm meter to test the thermostat/thermistor. (Should have/show continuity)
If the coil heats up then replace the thermostat/thermistor.
DO NOT LEAVE THE WIRES TAPED TOGETHER AFTER THE TEST.
This could cause a FIRE, as you have removed the safety of overheat from the machine.

My dryer does not blow hot and will not shut off and no digital reading will display.


Hello Bryan;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

So, here are the probable causes:

1.) The blower wheel draws air through the dryer and pushes the air out the vent. If the dryer won't stop, the blower wheel may be plugged up or not be spinning properly, which reduces the air flow. Check to see if the blower wheel is securely fastened to the drive motor shaft. Check the blower hot air discharge manifold for blockage.

2a.) If the dryer won't stop, the gas valve solenoid coils might be defective. Over time these coils will fail, causing the burner to run intermittently. If the dryer is not heating properly it may not stop. Replace the coils as a set.

2.b) The heating element warms the air before the air enters the dryer drum. If the dryer won't stop, it may be because the heating element isn't working - which greatly increases the drying time. Check the heating element for continuity.

3.) Dryer sheets and fabric softener can leave a residue on the lint filter, reducing the air flow. If the dryer won't stop, check to be sure air can flow freely, clean the filter as needed.

4.) Although not as common, if the dryer won't stop it may be because the moisture sensor is either defective or shorted

5.) If the dryer won't stop, check the high limit thermostat. If defective, the high limit thermostat can turn off the heat prematurely, lengthening the time it takes to dry a full load. This is not common.

6.) The cycling thermostat regulates the temperature of the air in the dryer. If the dryer won't stop, it may be caused by a defective cycling thermostat turning off the heat too early. This is not common.

7.) The thermistor senses the temperature of the air in the dryer and cycles the heat on and off. If the dryer won't stop, the thermistor may be defective. This is not common.

Hunter, I have A kenmore electric dryer model 110.64121100. My problem is the dryer heats but the drum does not turn. This is a very strange problem. I turned off the timer and heater was still on in the...


Ok check the belt. if broken then make sure the drum turns freel by hand before replacing the bely. Usually dryers wont heat if the motor doesnt go so perhaps the motor is running without a belt. have a look see. Without an inspection its dificult to pin point Good luck

Dryer starts then 8-10 seconds later dings,stops,displays code for heater temp.control problem.This is intermittent problem,sometimes it works!


theres a thermistor in the blower housing vent ductwork inside the dryer connected by a red and blue wire and you need to remove and replace this thermistor as they get intermittant from the heat of the exhaust temps,this thermistor monitors the exhaust temp and cycles the element for heat output

Electric dryer intermittently doesn't heat


If your dryer has a timer with quick connects which easily plug into it then you can possibly fix this problem. Yank both connects off the timer and remove the timer. Take the 2 motor screws off and remove the plate carefully. Clean the contacts on each leaf switch with a file. Put it back and retry. Sounds difficult but it isn't. Remember only the timer with the 2 quick connects.
