DRYER OVERHEATING:

Heating Element
A defective heating element can make a dryer too hot. If the element partially shorts out, it can produce heat all the time, regardless of whether the dryer is calling for heat. Remove the heating element to inspect it. The coils should not be touching each other or anything else.

Other Causes and Conditions
Air Flow Problem
Dryers need good ventilation to work properly. If the vent is clogged it can make the dryer too hot. Clean all of the vent tubing thoroughly.

Cycling Thermostat
Although not common, a defective cycling thermostat can make the dryer too hot. The cycling thermostat is supposed to turn on and off the heat to maintain the proper temperature. If the thermostat is defective it may keep the heat on too long. The thermostat is not adjustable or repairable, it must be replaced.

Felt Seal
Most dryers have a felt seal at the front and rear of the drum to keep the heat inside the drum. If the felt seal is worn away or missing, the dryer may keep heating and make the dryer too hot. This is not common.

Blower Wheel
A defective blower wheel will not spin properly and will not vent the hot air, making the dryer too hot. Check to see if there is adequate airflow out of the dryer.

Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

Your heating element is difficult to get at.

25438420-j5jtgwve0qxm0uckbdimcx40-4-0.jpg Unplug the dryer before installing this heating element. Remove the bottom front service panel to access and replace the heating element.
This heating element is rated at 5500 watts.
This Dryer Heating Element part #3387747
Cost: $59.00

It is located in side the housing.

You may just be plugged up with lint in your hot air distribution manifold.

Or have a bad high temperature limit switch located on the back on your hot air exhaust manifold.

Hello, I have Kenmosre 90 series dryer. Did a load ealier today, and it was fine. Went back to put another load in and realised NO heat was on, absolutley no heat in the dryer, the air inside is room...


you may need a heating element. You can go to your locale appliance store and buy the element & install it yourself . Just make sure you take All your dryer info, (etc; the dryer model, make, yr & the serial # ) this info is easy to find, its located inside the dryer door. Just call around your locale area and ask them how much it is for the heating element, for your dryer. It should be rather cheap compared to the cost of Kenmore appliance company coming out to fix it for you. The heating element is rather easy to install. I have installed a few in my own dryers and in my hot water heater.
Thank you.
Sincerely,

Kenmore dryer is not getting hot


More than likely the heating element has gone out. This element is located at the base of the dryer and is accessed through the back. It looks like a toaster oven element but a tad bit bigger. You can replace it yourself or have an appliance tech replace it for a minimum fee

We have a Kenmore Gas dryer it runs but it doesnt get hot.. any ideas what it could be?


The heating element is most likely burned out. Try ordering a new heating element for your dryer and calling a repairman to put the new heating element in.

Dryer not hot


Tht means that the element is not heating on.

You need to call a technician to test the element, the thermic sensor, and the control assembly.

The most likely is a defective heating element, that must be replaced.
