If you go to searspartsdirect.com, type in your model number in the Search menu, then look under the "Bulkhead" menu option, you will see an illustration of your dryer. You will need to remove the heater box cover (item #5) to get to the heating element. The element should slide out of the bottom of the heater box housing. Removing the housing from the dryer first makes it easier. Sometimes you may need a little muscle in getting the heater coil to come out.

Have you checked the thermal cut-out(TCO)/hi limit thermostat? This is item #1 in the drawing. If your dryer runs, but does not heat, this is normally the culprit. You are right to assume you could have a heating element problem, but the element tends to be more resilient. In my experience with electric dryers, the thermal cut-out tends to go bad first. It's easier to check and easier to replace as it is mounted on the outside of the heater box. Check for the following:

With the heater box STILL installed, the TCO will be a small component mounted at the top of the heater box housing. The hi-limit thermostat will be mounted at the bottom of the heater box housing next to the ceramic terminal of the heating element. With the dryer UNPLUGGED, disconnect the wires to the TCO and do a resistance reading. It should read 0 ohms if good. Do the same with the hi-limit thermostat. It should also read 0 ohms if good. Last of all perform a reading across the leads of the heating element with the wires unplugged. You should get a reading of 9 - 13 ohms if it is good. If you determine the TCO or hi-limit thermostat to be bad, it is HIGHLY recommended that you replace them BOTH at the same time. They are sold as a set (part #279769). Failure to replace both components could result in part failure. The part number for the heating element is 4391960. I hope this helps you.

Check the power input. perhaps one of the hot legs is not working. When I say this I mean that the dryer is plugged into a 240V receptacle (if you live in North America). This means that each of the hot slots are 120V. The heating element uses both of these for a total of 240V, but the controls use only one for 120V. The element may seem to be working, but it could be only half-voltage.

Or it could be a faulty timer circuit.

How to tighten dryer baffle on HE5 electric dryer?


The dryer baffle mounting screws are located around the outside perimeter of the drum. You will need to remove the top panel of the dryer to access them. The panel comes off by locating and removing the three screws that hold the panel in place in the rear of the dryer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then lift off. CAUTION: Make sure you UNPLUG the dryer prior to servicing. You should be able to manually rotate the drum to get to all the bolts you need to tighten.

If you have any questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you.

I have a Kenmore Electric Series 80 Dryer that the drum inside won't turn but it heats up and smells hot like something is burning. I can however turn it manually.


Remove the top and the front panel to remove the drum after you purchase a belt and teh idler pulley that Sears selles for your dryer. The pulley's bearing has froze up causing the belt to burn up and falling off

How do I take off the back to get to elements and fuse on my kenmore elite dryer, I took screws off but the top appears to be welded.


Getting to the heating circuits is not the same on every model of dryer. Some dryers have heating circuits in the REAR of the dryer, some have the heating circuits located inside the cabinet UNDER the drum and others have heating circuits BEHIND the drum.

If your dryer has the lint screen on the TOP of the unit, you will need to remove the BACK panel of the dryer to expose the heating circuits.

If the dryer has the lint screen in the DOOR, you will need to remove the lower toe panel under the door by using a putty knife to release the retaining clips. They will be located along the seam in the front about 2 inches in from each side. If this is a Kenmore Elite or Whirlpool Duet, the lower toe panel comes off by removing the screws under the bottom edge of the panel.

If you do not have a toe panel, you will need to lift the dryer top and remove the entire FRONT panel to access the internal components.

If you have further questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER so I can determine how your dryer is constructed.

My kenmore series dryer is making noise as it runs. It heats but makes a noise as if coins are in the dryer. I cannot see anything from inside the dryer, is there a way to remove the front face of the...


there's 2 basic ways to removing the front panel. First is 2 screws at the very bottom of the front panel, when removed the panel can be lifted and un-hinged from the top. The other is by using a flat screw driver and prying the top up at the edges on the front side the removing 2 screws or hex screws located inside the front panel toward the top. make sure you undo door swich wires before completely removing the front panel. then in the middle of the drum on the inside of it either 1-3 screws hold the drum to the back. Remove belt first then screws then pull drum straight out. The noise may be from your rear drum bearing or coins have gotten in the paddles of the drum(inside) paddles can be removed. I had coins in one of my paddles, made 60some cents lol at same time found perfctly round lint balls. Good Luck
