Question about Kenmore 64722 Electric Dryer

Open Question

We purchased our dryer new from Sears about 18 months ago Model # 110.69522800 Problem: It will not heat. It will run constantly, and not shut off on the auto-dry setting. Setting it to a timed dry will not produce heat either. I have opened the back, and have a multi-meter, but need to know exactly what wires and parts I need to be touching to test for continuity. Here is a link to the picture of the back: I'm a novice at electrical, but handy enough to do what I need too. Plus, the $129 technician fee isn't feasible, so I need to be able to fix it myself :)

SOURCE: No heat - Kenmore Electric Dryer Model 110.64892401

there are 2 ways to get into your dryer.
1. Pull the dryer out away from the wall and unplug the unit.
see if the back panel comes off. if so just take the back panel off the dryer.

2.If there is no back panel still unplug the unit.
take a flat head screw driver to the front lip of the dryer. You will need to go to the front side edge and instert the screw driver. you will need to pull up on it until you hear it pop. and the dryer top should pop off the unit.

from there you will be able to find the thermostat and heating element.

SOURCE: Kenmore Dryer runs with no heat

An open circuit does mean the element is bad and will need to be replaced.
Just in case though, make sure your meter is working properly by touching the leads together. You should get a reading.
Good luck!

SOURCE: Kenmore 86870800 Will not heat...

The reason to this problem is due to the faulty heating element.
Once the dryer runs with no heat then there is a problem in the
heating element which cannot be repaired,so you need to
replace it.

SOURCE: elecrtic kenmore dryer; auto dry setting not working propeely

you just might need a clean out,unplug the dryer take out the filter,remove the bottom panel and remove the duct that the filter slides into,clean it out and vac out the inside of dryer,if you have a shop vac that blows on the other end blow the lint forward so you don't have to pull the drum to clean the inside,make sure you blow off the motor alot of lint gets stuck inside the motor,now go to the back and remove the vent line,if it's a long run i use a leaf blower to blow all the lint out of the vent line,first make sure nothing is blocking the outside vent so when you blow out the line the lint is free to exit outside,all the thermostats run off of heat and if the dryer is blocked and the air can't move it will run hotter than normal,the timer can't opperate correctly either.all this will cost you is time and this should be done once a year anyway

SOURCE: I have a Kenmore (Whirlpool) Elite HE5 Steam front

I think I know what the problem is, this actually happened on a dryer I repaired at one point. Low line voltage to me means that one or more hot leads is not feeding enough voltage to the heating elements (and the heating elements need both hot leads to run) which means the circuit breaker, although on, may be malfunctioning or weakening. You can check this by running your dryer and taking the cover off your circuit panel and checking voltage on the breaker. You should see 110V on each terminal to ground (put leads from one terminal to the grounding bar in the panel). If you see less than 110V on each lead to ground and less that 240V across the terminals it needs to be replaced. (You can get one for under $25.00 depending on brand). NOTE: THE BREAKER USUALLY POPS RIGHT OUT OF THE PANEL, BUT WHEN WORKING IN PANEL TURN MAIN BREAKER OFF TO THE HOUSE AND HAVE SOMEONE HOLD A FLASHLIGHT FOR YOU. IF YOU TOUCH THE LIVE BUSS BAR THAT BREAKER GOES INTO YOU WILL GET SEVERELY HURT. TURNING OFF MAIN BREAKER WILL DISENGAGE THE POWER FROM THE BUSS BARS; NOTE THAT MAIN WIRES ARE STILL POWERED SO BE CAREFUL.

After dryer shuts off, timer continues to run. Kenmore model #110.86181810, part # I think is 692032 and sears says it is no longer in stock. Anyone still have one?

I assume you're talking about the buzzer. Many high end dryers do that until you remove the clothes. heated clothes can set wrinkles if kept in the same position for a long time. it's a feature, not a problem, unless it keeps buzzing after you remove the dried clothes!
