Click on the following link for information on how to diagnose a dryer "No Heat" problem:

Your correct model number is 110.86870100. Manufactured by Whirlpool. You can find replacement parts at Just type in the model number I provided and follow the links on the next page. The heating circuit components are listed under the "Bulkhead Parts" heading. Use the helpful illustrations for easy part identification. Accessing your heater components are easy on this model dryer. All you have to do in UNPLUG the dryer and remove the back panel. The heating element, thermal cut-out and hi-limit thermostat will be on the right-hand side (facing from the rear). The blower fan assembly will be on the left hand side. Using the parts listing on the Sears website, the following components are suspect if it is a heating circuit problem:

Item 1 (part #279769) Thermal cut-out w/ Hi-limit thermostat - sold as a set and recommended to be replaced at the same time if one or the other is found to be defective.

Item 14 (part #4391960) Heating Element.

Read through the link I provided and follow the steps. Try to rule out the common sense things BEFORE assuming parts are defective. You may want pay particular attention the paragraph explaining proper vent ducting maintenance and installation. If you do not maintain the ducting properly the heating circuits will eventually fail again due to overheating.

Please post back if you have questions and/or require additional assistance. I hope you find this information helpful.
