The heater and thermostats are easily accessible in in the rear by removing the back panel.

Dryer spins but no heat


Conventional dryers are usually accessed by removing the rear panel. I would think these would be the same. Unplug the dryer and remove wires from heating element. Test for continuity with an ohmmeter. If there is no reading, the heating element is bad. Disconnect wires from the hi temp thermostat and test with an ohmmeter and if no reading it is bad. Sears has these parts available.

Kenmore dryer model # 110-60212990 heater element not working. replaced element, thermal fuse, thermal cutoff


Hello
Check high limit thermostat continuity. If ok ,Check for voltage at thermostat side of the heater element.If voltage present timer ok.Most likely centifugal switch at motor.Motor has to be running for element to work.

It's all fixable!

Kenmore dryer blows cold air. I replaced heat element still no luck? model 96263800


It doesn't necessarily mean the heating element is busted when an electric dryer stops heating. The heating circuit is not just composed solely by the heating element, it is composed by the thermal cut-off, high-limit thermostat, cycling thermostat, motor centrifugal switch, and the timer. The first thing to look at when an electric dryer stops heating is the thermal cut-off. It cuts power to the heating element when it blows most likely due to the failure of the high-limit thermostat. The thermal cut-off must be replaced, together with the high-limit thermostat, if found open. Click on the link below for the detailed instructions in troubleshooting this problem.

I have a Lady Kenmore electric dryer (40 years old maybe?), model 110 6508923, which I cleaned the vents, strong air, tumbles fine. The heating element glows orange for a few moments, then as it finally...


The element is supposed to cycle on and off thru out the drying cycle as not to burn clothes. Is it just taking too long to dry. If it is your exhaust from the wall behind the dryer to the outside is clogged somehow. I like to use a leaf blower stuck inside the exhaust behind the dryer and blow the whole line out to the outside of the home.

My Lady Kenmore Ultra Fabric Care electric dryer model #86692100 abruptly stopped heating. Fuses are okay and venting is fine. Need troubleshooting information


Hi.

Test the heating element and the thermostat.

Both are tested using a multimeter to read impedance. Set multimeter at Rx1, on Ohms.

To test the element disconnect element and point tester probes at element contact.
If there is no continuity, and the circuit is open, then the element is faulty.

The thermostat can be tested jumping its wires to bypass it, but there are many safety concerns doing this kind of test.
Better disconnecting the thermostat and reading Ohms, as for the element.
At room temp the thermostat must have low impedance, if it goes to infinity, and circuit is open at room temperature, then the thermostat is bad.

If both test good, and you have no heating at all, then it may be a bad electronic control, or a wiring problem.

The model number you gave does not match.

Try Entering correct model number on this website to get parts and diagrams.

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 .

I want to remove the heating element from a Lady Kenmore dryed # 110 76694100. How do I access the element and where is it located?


Should be located in the back of the dryer...remove the panel from the back of the dryer, and look for the dryer air tube coming from the fan...the element should be in there

Heating element gone in our kenmore dryer


Hi, Without having a model # so I can see the exact dry style you have, This is how to get to the most popular style element. UNPLUG the dryer! Remove the rear panel of the dryer and locate the element on the right hand side. Plug the dryer back in and test to see if there is 240V going to the element posts. If there is voltage, but no heat, change the element. If it does not, you need to test the thermostats for continuity. If any of the thermostats are open, replace it. I hope this helps you.
Please let me know if this help or if I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

Kenmore dryer will not heat


only 2 things can be wrong, the heater element is toast or one of the safety thermostats is fried, most likely it is the heating element. make sure its well connected(while unplugged!!!)

Kenmore Heavy Dut Model 86427810 runs but does not heat


You need to have a look at the thermal protection devices and the thermostat section and make sure they are functioning such that power is reaching the heating elements. If they are and there is still no heat, the elements are probably malfunctioning. If the dryer is producing ANY heat, then the thermostat and thermal circuit is OK, and all you need are elements.
