We have a Kenmore Ultra Fabric Care Heavy Duty 80 series. It won't heat up.

You probably have a faulty heating coil, or thermostats.
If you plan to repair it yourself, remove the back of the machine, locate the air tube going from the blower to the drum. Normally inside of the air tube is where you will find the heating coil, and thermostats.
Check your heating coil with a continuity meter across the two terminals.
Good luck,
I hope this helps

Kenmore dryer- remove fan to change motor on dryer.Do I need a gear puller to remove ? 7 yr old 90 series dryer ,seal drum came lose from damage to dryer when purchased. Did not relize damage until motor...

The wheel has left handed threads. Use an impact wrench and an adjustable wrench to get it off or get a vice grips or pipe wrncha nd lock down the shaft then get a stick of wood or a hammer handle and shove it in between two fins at the 3 oclock position. Slam downwards on the wheel and it should pop loose.
