Kenmore elite model number 64992 won't heat up

Trying to fix a simple fix (i'm sure) to a heating problem on my dryer. i checked the heating element and it was good, no breaks in it. i took the heater box with the thermal cut off and the high limit thermostat connected to it to a local appliance parts store. they checked it out and told me it was good. said that maybe i'm not getting enough voltage to my unit. i checked it and it was good. the guys at the store told me to get a professional to look at it and told me to pick a paticular one. i felt as though they wanted me to take my buisness to him and so here i am trying to fix it myself out of principal. i figure a heating problem would be a common and simple fix so i am asking for advice from the experts. i also checked the heater switch and it was good. next will be the centerfugal switch followed by the very expensive (i'm sure) the control unit. i spent about 30 min looking for the centerfugal switch with no luck. that is what brought me to this site. thanks for the help.

    first of all i should mention that my complete model number is 110.64992301. ok, after further troubleshooting, i checked my fabric care/ temperature switch. I am supposed to have continuity in specific positions. in the 12 o'clock position (medium heat) i am supposed to have continuity with contact 2&4 which i'm not. in the 2 o'clock position (medium high heat) i'm supposed to have continuity with contact 2&4 (which i am) and contact 1&4 (which i'm not). i took the part to my local appliance store to see if the new swich would do the same but they didn't have it in stock. if the experts tell me that this is why i'm not getting heat in my dryer, then i will purchase it on line. it's pricey ($54) so that's why i'm hesitant to purchase it. again, thanks for any help given.

Centrifugal switch is mounted to motor..maybe but doubtful..if that has mechanical timer turn to heat cycle remove large red or black wire ckd between the 2 connectors on timer for continuity if has a control bd (even heat control) possible bad heat relay the one with the big red wires ..swapping the motor relay and heat relay would be a simple ck

Kenmore Elite Oasis ST electric dryer does not heat


You need to replace the heating coil that is usually the problem when you get air and and the tumbler is moving but no drying you can also check the lint catcher and clear out your dryer outgoing vent remove the hose check the dryer vent where the vent hose is connected and the vent going outside the house before changing the heating coil .

It means your element needs to be replaced, take it to the Kenmore parts store nearest you, and they will confirm that, and you can get a new one there unless they have to order one in.
Be sure to have the make and model and serial number of your dryer with you.

Kenmore elite dryer no heat


You may want to check if the heating element needs replacing. Most Dryers have 2 heating elements that are found by taking the back off, some of the newer dryers have 3.

Kenmore Elite dryer won't heat but otherwise operates normally


Make sure you have 220V. The dryer will work (no heat) if only getting 110V. Check your thermostats with your Ohm meter. Mkae sure plug is disconnected and you disconnect thermostat wires. Should have continuity. Just because you have checked your heating element and you have continuity that does not mean it is good. How can this be? Easy, sometimes they (coil in heating element) break and arch against the housing or ceramic insualtors (depending on model) and you will have continuity. This just happened to mine and without a visual inpsection of the heating element do not aaume it is good.

You need to make sure you have 220V first all the way to the dryer. Make sure you have no blocks (lint blockage). Check your thermostats for continuity. Make sure all the wires are disconnected when testing. If they show good check your heating element not only with the ohm meter but take it out and visually inspect it. They can be bad and show continutiy.
