Start by checking the thermal cutoff fuse part #3398671 substitution 279769 for the heater element. Most of the time those will go out before the element does. If these are blowing frequently, then you should check your dryer outlet hose for lint and other blockage. This will also cause your dryer to not dry properly. While out on a service call, I found a packrat's nest inside the dryer vent hose.
One way of checking if its the fuse, is to take a jumper and bypass the fuse, and run juice directly to the heating element. If it works without the fuse, then it's ok. If not then the heater element is bad.
I hope this helps

Kenmore dryer will not heat up


I couln't bring anything up using the model number you gave, but generally an electric dryer will have heat if the heating element gets the signal from the switches and it is not open.

If everything works beside the heat, then I would make sure that the heat selector switch is operational and if it is then to replace the heater element.

Kenmore 600 Electric dryer won't heat up. I have replaced the Thermostat and Heating Element. No heat. What should I do next.


You could have a timer problem or an electrical problem. Unplug the dryer. Find the wire that connects from timer to heating element. Disconnect it from that terminal and clamp a lead from an ohm meter there. Then test for continuity from that terminal to any other terminal of that timer while turning the dial to various spots. If you cannot get a reading then you have a bad timer.themobilian_859.jpg
The motor is a 120 volt one. The motor runs off neutral and one side of the 30 amp two pole circuit breaker. You might be fooled into thinking you have power to the element but you may not have it.
