The cycling thermostat or the high-limit thermostat may not be the problem but rather the gas valve solenoid coils sitting on top of the gas valve assembly. Disconnect power then verify this condition by bypassing the thermostats. Refer to the image below and locate the thermostats.

Note: This is an image of an electric dryer but the thermostat and the thermal cut-off (cut-out) locations are the same.

Disconnect each of the thermostat wires then connect and insulate them properly. Once done, reconnect power and start the dryer. The gas valve solenoid coils are indeed faulty and both need to be replaced if the problem still persists. Click here for the procedure in replacing the solenoid coils.

Gas Valve Solenoid Coils Replacement Procedure

Either or both of the cycling thermostat and the high-limit thermostat are malfunctioning if the dryer continues to heat up with the thermostats bypassed. Disconnect power then reconnect the cycling thermostat wires but keeping the high-limit thermostat bypassed. Reconnect power then start the dryer. The high-limit thermostat is the culprit if the dryer continues to heat up. If not, then the cycling thermostat is the culprit.

Also do the other way; that is reconnecting the high-limit thermostat wires but keeping the cycling thermostat bypassed. The cycling thermostat is the culprit if the dryer continues to heat up. If not, then the high-limit thermostat is the culprit.

Replace the faulty thermostat and it should solve the problem.

SOURCE: Kenmore Dryer Model 110

I found the solution to be very informative and helpful. However, I checked the resistance of the heater element and it is about 10 ohms, and is not open. The TCO resistance is about zero. What about the thermostat? No values were given to check it for, but I did check it's resistance and it was also close to zero. The thermostat sort or "rattles" when I shake it; is that normal?

I pulled the heater element out and looked at it, and can see no visible damage. Also checked the air outlet and hose - no blockage in the hose and the air output at the dryer seems fine.

What else could be causing the dryer to not heat. Have checked at all cycles and temperature settings (low, medium and high)?

SOURCE: Kenmore gas dryer not getting hot enough

Have you checked the lint trap and also the vent hose? If you have yet to do that try it. Also make sure that the vent line is not crushed. It needs to be wide open

SOURCE: I have a kenmore dryer model #110-74212200 and it

need to check vent system. restricted air flow
will reduce the amount of heat unit will give in result dry time will be extended. if no heat is detected then the thermal fuse needs to be replaced. thermal fuse blows when there is not enough air flow over heating element. meaning there is a restriction in the venting system.

Kenmore model 90 dryer electric will dry the clothes takes a long time. Leaves the floor surrounding the dryer damp actually wet just not puddled


Are the clothes wet AND hot? If so - check the exhaust / vent hose for kinks or obstructions. That includes the cap / flap on the outside of the house.

If the clothes are wet AND cold, then the electric heating element isn't heating likely due to a broken or poor electrical connection, burned out heating element, defective thermostat, etc..

Kenmore Model 1.10 60902990 Dryer Problem


Try it with out connecting to your vent and see if it still trips,other wise your vent is still clogged. Also should be good air pushing out the disconnected vent, if not maybe blower wheel clogged.
Another thing is how hot is it getting.Maybe the operating thermostat is getting to hot and never stopping the heat when its supposed to.

I have a Kenmore Series 70 Dryer and I changed the thermal fuse got hot for a few minutes the model #110.74722400


The cycling thermostat must also be replaced when replacing the thermal fuse. The cycling thermostat's failure to cycle off the heating element results in overheating of the dryer which consequently blows the thermal fuse open.

Replacing only the thermal fuse should the dryer stops running and fails to start will result in its premature blowing or even the thermal cut-out (cut-off) located on the heater duct. Like the cycling thermostat, the high-limit thermostat must also be replaced once the thermal cut-out blows open. Refer to the parts diagram in the link below and look for item numbers 31(thermal cut-off), 34(hi-limit thermostat), 39(thermal fuse), and 41(cycling thermostat.

Sears Kenmore dryer model number 96310100 runs but not heating. How do you check the thermostat??


Click on the below link to see the diagram where the thermostat is located.

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/Dryer-Parts/Model-11096310100/0582/0151200/00064690/00002?blt=06&prst=&shdMod=

Part number 8 is the thermostat on the diagram. If the unit is not getting hot, you can use an Ohm Meter to check for continuity. If the thermostat reads open or no connection, the unit is bad. If you do not have an Ohm Meter you can temporarily tape the connection on one of the thermostats leads to the other to see if it starts to warm up. I would suggest you use electrical tape and perform this operation with the unit unplugged then plug the unit back in order to test it. Do not run the dryer for more than a few minutes, or you may have to call the fire department. If it warms up after a few minutes the thermostat is defective and needs to be replaced.

Kenmore Model 110.96585200 No heat!


You probably have a bad thermal cut-off . This is the small thermostat , located at the top of the element housing . This " thermostat " should read infinate resistance ( no resistance ) . You can put the 2 wires togather , and see if heat comes on . pt # 3399848 . Both thermostats , should read 0 resistance . They are normally closed . The thermal cut-off , will not reset itself , if open . This is a safety t-stat , for when dryer gets too hot , and will have to be replaced .

There is only cold air in my kenmore elect dryer


The motor runs on 120VAC. The heating element requires 208/240VAC. Cycle the dryer circuit breaker. Other than a simple issue like that, the problem could be a bad heating element, thermostat, high limit control, thermal fuse, motor centrifugal switch, timer or electronic control. It can also be a wiring issue.
