Question about Kenmore Elite HE4 Electric Dryer
On electric dryers the problem can be caused by many different things that can go bad...and often it is a combination of things that go bad and cause problems.
The heating element can go bad but it very often does not. It is controlled by a thermostat... this often goes bad and then it caused the high limit to cut out the heat... this burns that out... so if the thermostat is bad then you also need to replace the high limit...
On many newer dryers there are sensors that also can go bad...if they are telling the dryer that it is already hot inside then the heat will not come on...they can be checked with an OHM meter...
Like wise if the sensor says it is too cool inside then the heat stays on till it trips the high limit...
Of course if your dryer was all plugged up with lint then maybe it just tripped the high limit and that is all that you need replaced...
So you can see that the best buddy of the troubleshooter is the OHM meter to check through the circuits and see why the dryer is not heating...there are many possibilities...
