Kenmore Stackable Dryer Won't Heat

This morning I replaced the bearing on the dryer drum. After reassembling the drum, now the dryer won't heat. I took the drum off and traced every wire thinking that I must have knocked a wire loose somewhere however after checking the connection of every wire, this was not the case. I do not see a fuse anywhere to check. Is there another part to look for that is probably the culprit?

You may have an open thermal fuse, Look at the wiring diagram and see if it has a thermal fuse, then check it with an ohm meter to see if its open, replace as needed

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.

Hi Gene, I have an Electrolux FEX831C30 stacked washer and dryer. the drum in the dryer has completely come loose and has dropped to the bottom of the dryer cabinet. there were two screws in the drum. what...


Good Morning Brian,

The reason the drum has fallen free from the rear is a defective rear drum bearing and that drum bearing that has sheared itself off of the bearing support.to repair that dryer ya would need to replace the bearing kit its part number 5303281153 and would be in stock at your local applince parts store or online at searspartsdirect.com, repairclinic.com, apdepot.com, partselect.com, or apwagner.com

Before replacing the drum the drum bearing you should also inspect the heat element since when the bearing shears off its not that uncommon for the drum to fall onto the heater shroud and also break the heat element

While this Youtube video i have included the link to shows how to replace the drum bearing in a full siz e free standing (not stacked laundry center) dryer the process of how to replace the rear drum beaqring is exactly the same and that video should help ya http://www.youtube.com/user/RepairClinic?v=67hOqSFnX8g&feature=pyv&ad=9033434261&kw=drum%20bearing

Good luck,i hope ya find it very simple to replace that bearing,
GENE

My dryer won't heat up. where is fuse box for kenmore stackable 41794813301

Behind this drum on the upper left hand corner is the fuse

If it was tripped however the dryer would not operate as it is tied into the door switch.

You can get a restring kit for less than 20 bucks for these

Get top off then the controls off there then remove the front like this:

The heater is on the back side of the drum so it has to come on out
I did a repair on a similar dryer last year and took some photos

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,

Kenmore stackable dryer makes squealing sound. need to find out where to get replacement belt. heard people say open it up and replace the belt but we dont know where it opens up.


probably not belt most likely rear drum bearing which means a complete tear down of dryer from front console,rop and front panel will have to be removed then drum will need to be lifted up out of bearing cup belt removed part is avaiable from sears .com or local parts house unit is made by fridgedaire
