Hi, Our dryer runs but doesn't heat. We checked the power source, heating element with ohm meter but it was fine. What else should we check? Thanks.


Hi.

If the dryer runs there is no problem with power. If the appliance runs but does not heat the problem is one of the thermal devices. The dryer comprises one thermal fuse, several thermostats and the element. Thermal fuse and thermostats must be checked along with the element.

Start from the thermal fuse. The fuse can be tested reading impedance with a multimeter. If the fuse is open it will read Ohms infinity. In that case replace the fuse. Here the part: ASSY-BRACKET (THERMOSTAT) (Thermal Fuse with Bracket).

The fuse is part n.15 in Diagram one below. Click on the picture to enlarge:

If the fuse is OK, or if replacing the fuse did not help test the thermostats. You have the following parts:

THERMOSTAT - Part 11 in diagram

High Limit Thermostat -Part 13 in diagram

THERMISTOR - Part 27 in diagram

If the appliance is running the door switch should not be the problem. If you need test also the DOOR-SWITCH.

The thermostats can be tested reading impedance. If there is no heat, then one of the thermostats is open and will return Ohms infinity. Other way to test a thermostat is by jumping its contacts and running a controlled cycle to prevent overheating.

Regards.

The Whirlpool 3RAWZ480E is running normal the problem is " no heating"


More often than not a no heat condition is caused by a failure of the heating element in electric dryers. Less frequent but just as likely is a failure of the thermal fuse which is located on a portion of the internal ducting where heated air passes through. The thermal fuse will disable the heating element in the event of uncontrolled overheating, which may have been caused by a malfunction of the temperature control thermostat or a malfunction/failure of a thermal circuit breaker.

Inside the appliance, either in the main cabinet or inside the control enclosure you will find the circuit diagrams and parts listing. If you feel confident in doing the repair yourself, these documents will help you locate the components of the system and give you the part numbers you need to order replacements. Make sure you disconnect from power before opening the cabinet. An inexpensive multi-tester will be all you need to check continuity of the components in the heating circuit.

My kenmore elec. dryer 67042 model wont get hot...I never recd a manual..need diagram to dis assemble and examine the unit! Can u help me find a diagram?



Make sure the unit is not plugged in when testing these fuses.You should also check the continuity on the heating element if all fuses check out as good.You may also need to check the main power at the terminal block and make sure you have 220 volts to the terminal block.These are all located on the rear of the dryer remove the back panel to get to them.


This is the most common locations for thermal fuses and heating element on Whirlpool,Kenmore,Estate dryers. Check these fuses for continuity and replace the one that does not have continuityseth765.jpgseth765_0.jpg

On the Kenmore series 90 electric dryer, where is the thermal fuse located.


The Thermal Fuse is located on the air blower housing. Its a small white plastic component with two wire leads.

The Thermal Cut-Out (TCO) is located on the outside of the heater box on the end opposite the heating element terminals.

The reason I mention both these components is because some people confuse the two and use the words interchangeably. There is a difference between the two components and what they do.

DOUBLE CHECK YOUR SYMPTOMS:

If your dryer does not run at all, check your Thermal Fuse.

If your dryer runs, but does not heat you need to check the Thermal Cut-Out.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know what symptoms you are having. Please include your complete model number (located on a nameplate around the door opening) so that I can determine how your dryer is configured. I hope this is helpful to you.

Kenmore gas dryer model #76812690 will not heat.


does the dryer heat initially when you first turn on the dryer Or no heat at all?

the first thing i would check is tthe thermal fuse thats located on the back of the unit. test it with a multimeter and see if it has continuity, if it doesnt then replace that and your operating thermostat. the check to be sure you venting to the outside of your house is not clogged

No heat in Maytag Electric Dryer


There should be a wiring diagram inside the operating console. Locate the thermal fuse and/or thermal cut-out and ensure they check good. They both should read close to a short if good. They are mounted adjacent to the heating element. If you have trouble locating the diagram and/or need further assistance isolating the problem, please post back with the dryer model number (located on the back of the console) and I will locate some diagrams to see if I can assist you further.

Kenmore dryer (electric )


You will need to UNPLUG the dryer and remove the back panel to access. The heating element is located inside the heater box on the right-hand side of the dryer (facing from the back). Simply disconnect, the wires leads and remove the mounting screws to remove.

Now...you mentioned removing the thermal fuse. Did you check the thermal cut-out or the hi-limit thermostat? These components are small silver disc-shaped devices mounted on the heater box assembly. As you are facing the back of the dryer, the hi-limit thermostat is located near the terminal connections of the heating element. The thermal cut-out is located farthest away from the heating element closer to the top of the heater box. Usually when you have a no heat problem, it the thermal cut-out, hi-limit thermostat, or heating element that goes bad. If the thermal fuse is bad, you generally have a dryer that not only won't heat, but won't even turn on. I hope I'm not confusing you. In a nut shell, there's a difference between the thermal fuse and the thermal cut-out. If you had large accumulations of lint in your dryer, I would bet you have a blown thermal cut-out.

If you wish to check the parts listing yourself to make sure you have the correct parts, go to searspartsdirect.com, type in your model number and look under the "Bulkhead" heading. The thermal cut-out kit is what you need to order for a no heat problem. It's listed as item #1 (part #279816). This also includes the hi-limit thermostat. It is recommended by the manufacturer to replace BOTH of these components at the same time. The heating element is listed as item #14 (part #279838).

Look under the "view diagram" heading and you can see where all these components are located, using the exploded view of the dryer assembly. The thermal fuse you mention is listed as item #59 in the drawing and is located on the air baffle housing.

This is still an easy fix. I just want to make sure you're identifying the correct parts. I don't think you want to purchase parts you don't need.

I hope this helps you. If I've managed to confuse you, please post back with your questions and I can guide you in the right direction.
