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.

OUR KENMORE DRYER BLOWS OUT COLD AIR


It's most likely a thermal fuse if it's a gas dryer. very easy to install. If your dryer is electric, it's either the thermal cut-off or the heating element itself. If you need help with anything, please feel free to e-mail me. good luck :)

My kenmore dryer is blowing out cold air


Make sure that both poles of your circuit are live - An electric dryer uses 220 volts to the heating element, but taps into only one pole (110 volt) for the motor that spins the drum. Check your circuit breaker to make sure that neither pole has tripped.

Check your heat sensors, one or more must be OPEN.

KENMORE DRYER MODEL #96263800 WON'T HEAT


Need to know brand name and model#..........but it sounds like your only getting 110volts to the dryer instead of 220volts........The moter and controls will run on 110v. but the heaters require 220v. carfully remove small cover on back or if you have a outlet(wall plug) you must check for 220volt...PROBABLE CAUSE 1 fuse blown,,,, or bad circiut breaker. FIRST is there 220v. at plug This will tell us if it's a wiring prob. or dryer prob.

It sounds like your heating element has broken. There are several links provided on this site on how to replace it. You might want to take a look at davesrepair.com to purchase a new one. He has pretty good prices on the element.

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.
