Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
Here is the full repair breakdown for you
Whirlpool and Kenmore style dryers - how to take apart: disconnect power first - Many dryers that I see have the two piece front, but some are the full front with no lower access panel on the bottom front ( see paragraph below ). The lower panel can be removed by using a straight screw driver to pry it off the upper clips, place screw driver in the middle top area ( below the door opening ) and "pop" it out towards you, sometimes you may have to do this at the side top corners of the lower panel as well. Once un-cliped from the top clips, the panel will have to be lifted up off the lower clips towards you. Once the lower panel is off, you should be able to see 2 screws on the bottom corners of the door panel, loosen these 2 screws off a couple of turns but do not remove them. From here you can see the idler pulley, motor, belt break switch and part of the belt. To go further in the disassembly, lift the cover from the lint filter or if yours is the one with a filter and cover together, remove the whole filter. You will see 2 screws under the cover/filter, remove them. Now, you will need a putty knife or a thin shafted straight screw driver to remove the top panel. Push the putty knife or screw driver here to "pop" the front top clips. The top panel will hinge back towards the wall and can be left there. Just inside the top of the front panel, you will see 2 screws, remove them. You will see the wires for the door switch on the right side, remove the metal clips to allow a more loose wire harness, hold the drum up slightly in one hand and tilt the top of the front panel towards you, you can now lift it off of the screws that you loosened earlier and place it on the right side of the dryer cabinet. On the dryers with a full front, use the same directions but you can ignore the lower panel and the loosen the screws parts. The front will lift off of 2 clips about 6 inches from the bottom and again be placed on the right side of the cabinet. You should undo the belt from the idler pulley and motor pulley, now you are ready to remove the drum. Just grab hold of both ends and lift it out. This style of dryer also has a rear access panel, you can see the operating thermostats, heat element connections from this point.

Why won't my kenmore dryer 970-c85092-00 heat?


check the heating element to see if the coils are still intact (not burnt or brake). if it is fine,then check the T-STAT and the T-CUTOFF switch. one of those is your problem. if it is the T-STAT or T-CUTOFF, replace them both, they are inexpensive and easy to replace. here is a link to a video that explains this fix thoroughly. i think you will find it helpful.

On my kenmore dryer 970-c82062-00 I can get all 3 timers to start but the heated automatic dry portion does not time out.


that model number doesn't come up,you sure that isn't the serial number?also does the dryer have heat,when you run it on time dry the timer just counts down like a clock,when on auto or more or less the heat comes on until the dryer heats to temp. the heat shuts off and the timer will advance,when the heat comes back on the timer stops moving,it will do this until the clothes are dry,if you do have heat you could have a bad sensor or a bad cycling thermostat but you'll have to check it with a meter.send the model number and i can help you better.

since it runs on air you have a grounded heater coil. Either the heater has sagged or broken and is touching the frame, here is a website that will assist you, Tim:

Kenmore 970-c82162-10 dryer is running but wont heat


check the thermal fuse located in the blower vent housing near the vent tube it checks like a fuse either good or bad,then on the element case check the hi-limit and cycling switch they also check like a switch, and the element if good will have resistance,if open it will show infinity on the meter,

No Heat


Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.
