Both the high limit thermostat #3977767 and the operating thermostat #3387134 are normally closed switches and should have continuity. These thermostats are usually replaced as a set because when one fails its often caused damage to the other. The part # for the kit is 279816 and comes with both and is cheaper than if bought separate

Dryer tumbles, no heat, thermo fuse has been changed. Can it be the cycling thermostat or the heating element?


If you have changed the thermal fuse you may have a defective thermal cutoff (located at the top of the heater housing in the back). The thermal cutoff will come with the high limit thermostat located at the bottom of the heater and you should change both parts if the thermal cutoff is bad.
You can take both of the parts (the heater and the thermal cutoff) to a parts supplier to have them checked for continuity (they should both read "closed" if they are good).
Good luck to you!

I cannot afford a service tech right now to come to the house. I hope you can help me through this service. I have a kenmore elite clothes dryer model # 110.63012101 Dryer was not making any heat. ...


you're doing the right thing except for changing out the element without reading it out first.when you check the parts make sure the dryer is unpluged and that you pull at least one of the wires off the part you're checking. check the thermostats on the heater box part
279769 which is part 47,also remove the duct that the lint filter slides into and clean it,if you have a long vent line remove it from the back of the dryer and blow it out with a leaf blower and if you have a shop vac put it on blow and blow off the motor and blow all the lint from the back inside of dryer so it blows to the front and vac it up so you don't have to pull the drum if you don't want to.the thermal cutoff pops when it gets to hot in the dryer most likely from a back up in the vent line or the duct,also go outside and make sure the vent is clear,you should be fine

No heat but already replaced heating elimate


Check the thermal cuttoff. It is located on the element. If it does not have continuity, replace it. Also replace the Hi-limit thermostat, also located on the element, and the operating thermostat, located on the exhaust. These two should cut off the heat before the thermal cutoff blows.

Replaced elements but does not heat in bowl


Check the thermal cutoff located on the element.  It is designed to blow if the element gets too hot.  If the thermal cutoff is blown, the hi limit thermostat (also located on the element) will also need to be replaced.  It will have two terminals on it and if it is good it will have continuity.  Trace the wires back from the element.  The first one it comes to will be the thermal cutoff, next will be the high limit thermostat.

Runs, doesn't get hot


Either your element is out our your thermal cutoff.  Check your element for continuity if it is open, replace the element.  If not check the thermal cutoff which is on top of the element.  If the thermal cutoff is open you will also need to replace the operating thermostat and Hi limit thermostat.  The high limit is on the element below the thermal cutoff, and the opperating thermostat is on the exhaust duct.
