Question about Kenmore Elite HE4 Electric Dryer
You're gonna need a meter to read out some of the parts to see what part is bad but it will only take you a couple of minutes to do this.unplug the machine,pop off the bottom panel with a putty knife or screw driver,stick it into the crack at the top of the panel and you'll find the clips around two inches in from the side of the panel.open the door,pull out the lint filter,remove the screws that hold in the duct that the filter slides into and check the thermal fuse located on the top of the blower wheel housing,it's the part on the left side part 3390719,you have to pull at least one wire off of any part you read out with your meter,if the fuse is good put the wires back on and move to the right,read out the heating element,pull off one wire and check it,if that's good check the thermostats on the side of the heating box,it could be one of these are the most common parts to check on an electric dryer with no heat.also while you have the duct off clean out all the lint in it and vac up all the lint in the cabinet,if you have a shop vac you can put it on blow and blow all the lint from the back to the front so you don't have to pull the drum,lso blow off the motor,lint builds up in it and sticks on it and the motor can overheat from this.then pull off the vent line from the back and clean it out,if it's a long run i use a leaf blower to blow out the line,just make sure that the outside vent is clear so the lint will blow out.you should clean out the dryer once every 1 1/2 years or if it's gas once a year so you don't have a fire and the dryer will run better and your clothes will dry on time.
