Question about Kenmore 63942 Dryer

1 Answer

Drum Spins - NO HEAT (110.63942101)

I'm new to fixya.com and an earlier posting may have been "lost". My problem is with a Kenmore electric dryer, model number 11063942101. The motor runs, the drum tumbles, there's 240vac at the terminal block. I've followed all the t-shooting suggestions that are on the tech sheet that came with the dryer. I've checked all the t-stats, centrifigal switch in the motor (I removed the motor, blew out the lint/dirt and manually ohmed out the switch by moving it in/out - worked ok), voltages, etc. I also did the on-board diagnostics test. At first I thought it may be the fabric care temp switch (5 pos) because when I tested the switch outside the unit, it appeared that the med and med-high positions didn't work. But during the diag test, it "beeped" with each click. Also when I checked it in circuit, the voltages appeared to be working when measured at the board (binary 0 - 4). The heating element reads 9.9 ohm, the exhaust thermistor reads correct for ambient temp. The only thing left is the pc board. I don't want to purchase a new board, if this isn't the problem and there are no schematics for it anywhere. Are there any other t-shooting suggestions to try? Is there a way to test the board? In addition, the heater relay is energized when the temp switch is set to anything but "no heat". There's 50vdc to the coil side and 240vac on the load side. I reseated all the connectors I could find. And while I had the machine torn apart, all the dirt/lint was vacuumed out. I also checked the timer switches and they appear to be correct. Any help/assistance is truely appreciated.

    spurs21...thanks for trying. However since I had the proper resistance on the heater element of 9.9 ohms, that wasn't the problem (don't worry, I didn't buy the part). It turns out that after looking at the circuit again, and "breaking it down" into sections, the problem was not anything that is listed in the troubleshooting guides. It turned out that the heater relay was defective. Once swapped with the motor relay, the heating element begin to "glow". A quick trip to the local appliance parts place, $38 later, the dryer is back-up and running. Thanks again for responding and trying.

Try replacing the heating element. This should solve your heating problem. Sign, Spurs21

SOURCE: Dryer Runs, but NO Heat

The new dryer products clog up the fine mesh screen lint trap. Take it out each time and wash it with hot water until you can see the water run through. I learned this the hard way and paid for a service call.

Kenmore electric dryer 8662100 drum turns, no heat

you have probably lost one leg of your power supply feed 120volts+120volts=240volts,your motor will operate on 120volts, but the element won't,also if you have 240volts the neutral wire to the element can burn off w/heat and age
