Many times it is not a problem with the dryer itself. Just as in automotive and housing, when no one thing can be pinned down, look for the simplest and least expensive fix first. This would include a look at the wall plug and the power cable.. Ensure the power is off first, then unplug the unit from the wall. Check first the 220 power recepticle, then inspect the cable and all connections for signs of blackening or burnouts. Repair/replace all blackened or burned wires and cables as needed. Often times, even a dirty connection will not allow electricity to flow.

Kenmore dryer blows cold air. I replaced heat element still no luck? model 96263800

It doesn't necessarily mean the heating element is busted when an electric dryer stops heating. The heating circuit is not just composed solely by the heating element, it is composed by the thermal cut-off, high-limit thermostat, cycling thermostat, motor centrifugal switch, and the timer. The first thing to look at when an electric dryer stops heating is the thermal cut-off. It cuts power to the heating element when it blows most likely due to the failure of the high-limit thermostat. The thermal cut-off must be replaced, together with the high-limit thermostat, if found open. Click on the link below for the detailed instructions in troubleshooting this problem.

The dryer will not heat. Think the heating element is bad. Where is it located on the dryer?

it is located at the back of the drum inside an oval housing. if the element coil is not broken, you may need the thermal cut off kit which is part #3977393, it contains 2 thermostats. the element part #is 3403585. hope this helps.

Dyer is not heating turns on and runs but it just does not heat up i took off hose and clean . also looked in back of dyer by taking off clover to look for fuse please help .

Kenmore dryers have what we call a thermo fuse, usually on top on the burner area - I would check continuity on this unit and replace if nesessary.
If the thermo fuse is okay and dryer heats up with gas, check your igniter and/or gas unit coils.
If dryer heats up with electric elements check continuity at both element ends and/or high limit thermostat.

Kenmore 70 Series Dryer Model# 110.64742400

check the thermal fuse if it is blown also change the high limit thermal cut-off fuse shows your parts. go there and enter model number. Also check the heat element. to get into it remove the lint filter and the two screws you'll see there then pry the top up at the front corners. And through the back you should find the heat element and blower housing and thermal fuse and high limit fuse and cycling thermostat.

Dryer won't dry - no heat

Make sure you have 240 volts going in. If you do, then it can only be the heating element or the thermo cut off located on the heater housing. Also could be the thermostat on the housing as well. The heater relay is possible, but check that last, it's most likely the element.

Dryer does not heat

Check the thermal cut-off, the thermostat, and the heating element. Most times one of the tree is the culprit.

I have seen a bad timer cause the no heat problem a few times but 99% of the time it is one of the three I mentioned.

If you change the thermal cut-off make sure you get both the cut-off and the thermostat. A stuck T-stat will take out a cut-off in a big hurry.
