In the lower back within the air path near the exhaust vent. Maybe a panel mounted with two screws and may have two or more wire attached to it. Looks like a toaster coil about one foot tall.

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.

KENMORE DRYER JUST STOPPED HEATING UP WHAT CAN I DO TO REPAIR IT?


Replace the Heating Element. The heating element is usually located behind a panel on the back. To replace you will need to remove the back cover of the dryer, then locate the heating element. The heating element is screwed into place and is easy to unscrew and replace. Be sure to have the dryer unplugged while doing this.
Here is the part for it:

No heat in kenmore series 80, model 85040


hello there:
here is some troubleshooting ideas for you to help
A dryer sometimes won't heat or heats too slowly because of a variety of reasons. By following the guidelines below, you can inspect the heating elements on a gas or electric dryer to pinpoint the source of the problem.
Electric heating elements, found in electric dryers, are self-contained units located in the back of the dryer. A defective heating element is frequently the source of no-heat or drying problems. Remove the back service panel to gain access to the elements.
The heating elements are located inside the heater ducts. If you think a heating element is faulty

How to replace heating element on dryer model #96282100


This is a fairly simple procedure. Just follow these steps:

1. UNPLUG the dryer. Dangerous voltage is still present even with the dryer turned off.

2. Turn the dryer around so you can access the rear and remove the exhaust vent hose.

3. Locate and remove the screws around the perimeter of the dryer back panel and remove panel.

The dryer heating circuitry will be located on the right hand side (as viewed form the rear). The heating circuits consist of the following components:

Heating Element - (part number 660982)
*Thermal Cut-Out (TCO) - (part number 279769 includes the Hi-Limit Thermostat).

*If either the TCO or Hi-Limit Thermostat is determined to be defective it is recommended that you replace BOTH parts at the same time. That's why they are commonly sold as a set. Failure to do so may result in premature failure of any parts you replace.

The heating element is located inside the heater box. The TCO is located on the outside of the heater box on the end opposite the heating element terminals. The Hi-Limit thermostat will be located adjacent to the heating element terminals.

Searspartdirect.com has an excellent exploded view diagram of all these components. Just type in your model number and locate the following under the "bulkhead" section:

TCO/Hi-Limit Thermostat - Item 1
Heating Element - Item 14
Hi-Limit Thermostat (by itself) - Item 34

The reason I mention all these components is because if you have not confirmed the heating element to be defective, you may actually have a blown TCO or Hi-Limit Thermostat. Its easy to assume a bad heating element if the dryer fails to heat, but it may or may not be the cause. Just some additional things to consider, that's all. These components cost less than a heating element too. If you have determined the heating element is bad, then continue with the following:

4. Disconnect the leads to the heating element and locate the screws that hold the heater box in place.

5. Locate the screws on the outside of the heater box that hold the element in place. You may also have to remove the TCO and Hi-Limit Thermostat.

6. Once the screws are removed, the heating element will slide out of the heater box. The element fits tight and it may require a little effort.

7. Once the defective element is removed, install the new one by sliding it inside the heater box. Make sure you align the screws holes.

8. Reinstall the remaining components and reinstall the heater box.

The rest is self-explanatory.

NOTE: A good heating element will read approximately 9 to 13 ohms. Make sure you disconnect any leads before taking any measurements to ensure accuracy of your readings.

The following link explains a good portion of what I've already explained to you, but it may help as well:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r630242-dryer_runs_but_not_heat

Pay particular attention the section that discusses proper air flow. The majority of all dryer heat related problems are attributed to poorly installed, kinked, clogged or crushed exhaust vent ducting. If you haven't thoroughly inspected the dryer and ducting recently, now may be a good time to do so. Otherwise, any components you replace will fail prematurely. Not to mention, a clogged dryer is also a fire hazard.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this information is helpful to you.

Procedure to replace heating element on 84152 electric dryer


This is a simple repair. Just follow these steps:

1. UNPLUG dryer. Dangerous voltage is still present even with the dryer turned off.

2. Remove the dryer vent exhaust hose and remove the back of the dryer.

3. The heating circuits are located on the right hand side (as viewed from the rear). The heating element is located inside the heater box. Simply remove the mounting screws on the heater box and remove the two wires on the heating element terminals. NOTE: You can leave the two remaining components (Thermal Cut-Out and Hi limit Thermostat) connected on some models. If you need to remove them in order to remove the heating element make sure you label the wires.

4. Locate the mounting screw(s) on the outside of the heater box that hold the heating element in place.

5. With the mounting screw(s) removed the heating element will slide out of the heater box.

6. Insert new heating element, making sure you avoid touching the coil and align the screw holes so you can reinsert the mounting screws.

7. Re-install the heater box and any remaining components.

Now...are you sure you have a bad heating element? Just because a dryer does not heat, does not necessarily mean the heating element is bad. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r630242-dryer_runs_but_not_heat

The most common fail item that causes a dryer heating circuit failure is a blown TCO caused by poor dryer ventilation. Just something you may consider.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

If you dryer lint screen is located at the top of your dryer your heating element is going to located at the rear of your dryer. You will need to remove the back of the dryer to get to it. You will see a housing and the element is located in there. If you lint screen is located in the door when you open the door then your heating element is located in the front. This one is easier to get to. Simply remove the bottom panel under the door and you will see the heating element right at the front on the right hand side. Make sure you unplug the dryer before working on it. If you have any other questions feel free to ask and also please let me know if this was helpful for you. Good luck and glad to help.

NO HEAT


heating elements are located in the stainless steel tube attached to the control box. Older models from the early 1990's and 1980's were sometimes housed in a plastic case with a square 5 x 5 plate on the one end.
