1 Answer

I have a Kenmore stackable and the dryer won't heat. I have replaced both primary and backup thermostats and the heating element. Still won't kick on. Is there a thermo fuse and how do I get to it?

The thermal fuse is located on the blower housing along with the cycling thermostat on the left side of the heating element enclosure. It is located behind the lint duct if the dryer has the filter on the front. But the thermal fuse cannot result in the dryer not heating. The dryer will not run if the thermal fuse is blown.

It's definitely not the thermal fuse if the dryer is running. The first things to check are the thermal cut-off and the high-limit thermostat both located on the heater housing and next is the cycling thermostat on the blower housing. Both components must have continuity for the heating element to turn on. The problem is either in the timer or the motor switch if all those three components have continuity.

Kenmore stackable washer/dryer. Model 417.93802209. Dryer will run but won't heat. Flipped breaker. Suggestions?


Possible that the heating element has burnt out, or that the thermostat that controls the element is defective. If you have a low or warm setting try that also as it may use a different element? Good luck.

Kenmore Stackable washer/dryer Model #11088752793, won't heat


Hi,
Either the elements have blown, or it could be a device called a thermal overload which has popped. (There may also be a loose wire which connects to the heating elements). Have your drier checked out by a good handyman or technician.
Best wishes,

Dryer has no heat anymore.


No, but there is a thermal cutoff located on the element. Which blows at 350 degrees and needs to be replaced for the dryer to work again. Since it blew, you will also need to replace the hi-limit thermostat, which cuts the element off at 250 degrees. They are both right next to each other, and you will need to remove the drum to get to them.

Kenmore series 70 dryer will not heat up replaced heating element thermostats check ok with ohm meter


If heating element was replaced and still no heat, Then what I would do is test the voltage current in the wiring and see if there is actually power to the element.

All parts to make dryer heat are:
heating element
thermal fuse
thermostat
timer

any one of these units can be faulty

Heat kick on then off


these are heat cycles,
the click you are hearing is the thermostat turning the element on or off, most dryers try to acheive a temp of 160 - 180 degrees, when reached the element shuts off for a bit to cool down and not scorch your clothes
you do not have to worry about this
