SOURCE: need to know how to change heating coil in white

The link below discusses disassembly of models similar to yours. The main difference is that the manual covers models with front controls whereas yours has top controls.

Unplug dryer. Place putty knife in the seam between the top and front panel about 2” in from either side. Push in on clip while pulling control panel forward and tilting putty knife handle up, all at the same time. Same on opposite side. Raise top all the way.

Looking down inside dryer on left and right see a screw about 6 inches down. Remove each side while holding front panel in place. Pull top of front panel about 3 inches forward from sides and then pull up. This will disengage the front panel from lower pressure clips and allow you to turn it sideways and expose the dryer interior.

Continue with "Removing the drum" on page 69. Having removed the drum exposes the heater behind it and safety thermostats above the heater shroud. The heater is generally purchased and replaced as a coil only not as a complete assembly as described in step 4 of page 72. Look for a break in the coil by touching all sections until found. If the break is not found check thermostats, motor switch at back of motor and heat contacts in timer for open circuits. Repair as necessary.

Reverse above process to reassemble.

MY DRYER WHICH I BOUGHT IN 2009 NO LONGER HEATS UP SINCE ABOUT 8MONTHS AGO! MODEL#110.69422801 SERIAL#MY3088080 TYPE=d433-ele-2406026-fm54


Hi vmalugin1129...

Here are a few things to check:
ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Check to make sure you are getting full 220 Volt power to the dryer, if you are then:
Check your Wiring
Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. If this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the wire is attached.
Check the Door Switch
If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. Check for continuity you should have none with door open, and should have a reading when closed. If not replace the door switch.
Check to make sure you heating problem is not a lint build up in the discharge hose or the dryer,as this condition can cause heater/thermistor problems such as overheating of the heating coil leading to failure of the coil and burnout of the thermostat/thermistor due to overheat.
Remove the back/or front just under the door of the machine and try to locate the air duct going from the blower to the drum. Normally inside/outside the air duct you will find the heating coil and the thermostats/thermistors. Once you have located the heating coil, remove the two wires from it and check the coil with an ohm meter across the two terminals of the coil.
You should read continuity across the terminals, if not you will need to replace the coil as it is faulty.
If the heating coil is ok, then:
You can check the thermostat/thermistor one at a time by removing the two wires and taping them together with electrical tape.
If the coil heats up then replace the thermostat/thermistor/thermal fuse as it is faulty.
If you have an ohm meter then you can test the thermostat/thermistor/thermal fuse,
then you do not have to tape the wires together as described above.
To test your thermostat/thermistor/thermal fuseremove the wires from the thermostat/thermistor/thermal fuse and check for continuity, if you DO NOT have continuity then replace the thermostat/thermistor/thermal fuse.
DO NOT LEAVE THE WIRES TAPED TOGETHER AFTER THE TEST AS THIS COULD CAUSE A FIRE BECAUSE YOU HAVE REMOVED THE SAFETY.
Check your blower wheel to make sure it is secure to the shaft and not plugged with lint,socks,etc.
If the thermal fuse overheats the dryer will not operate. It's located on the blower housing. It cannot be reset. A vent clogged with lint can cause it to overheat. You can test it with an Ohm meter or continuity checker, if no continuity, replace it.
Right after replacing a dryer element, always run the dryer on 'air fluff' / 'no heat', and go outside to verify there's plenty of air coming out your vent system.
If the vent's clogged, that new element can burn out very quickly.

My Kenmore Elite dryer is not heating up. Is there a coil that I can change? If so where is the coil located?


Check the heater element and thermal fuses for continuety.
Go to Sears.com and enter you dryer model, then go to parts description, enter heater, and from that you can go to the diagram of where the elemnt is.

Substitute heating element


Go to the local appliance repair parts store- they will have generic replacement elements and will likely be able to get you a right one for your dryer.
You should know if possible two things: model/serial number for your unit and length of the heating coil. (perhaps you've already taken it out)

Reason for kenmore dryer model # 96520100 serial # MD2309364 not heating belt appears in tack and has new vent hose.


Sounds like your problem may be with the heating coil.
If you plan to try to repair the problem yourself, then the first thing you want to do is unplug the dryer from the electric.
Remove the back of the machine and try to locate the air tube going from the blower to the drum. Normally inside the air tube you will find the heating coil and the thermostats/thermistor.
Once you have located the heating coil, remove the two wires from it and check the coil with an ohm meter across the two terminals of the coil.
You should read continuity across the terminals, if not you will need to replace the coil as it is faulty.
Good Luck,
Hope this helps

Kenmore gas dryer after 5 to 10 min. later no more heat


My Kenmore 80 series (model 11072802100) has the same problem that it fires up first and then stop producing heat after a few minutes. It's also 7 years old. After a while, if I restart it, it will run and do the same thing. I found a thread of discussion on another forum that says that this can be the gas valve coil (solenoids) problem as these coils turn on and off the gas flow to the chamber. I'm going to check out the coils, but don't know where they are located (can't find the manual). If anyone has any idea, please share. Or I'll just tear off the top and back to see where they are.

Any gurus here to help? Thanks.

Thermal fuse change on Kemore 970.c85042-00


First you need to know your dryer over heated and the thermal fuse tripped for a reason.

You will need to replace the thermal fuse, thermal fuses are there to protect the dryer. When you have the dryer apart clean all the venting and vacuum out the dryer. Look online for a parts supplier in your area, you will need your model and serial number to order the thermal fuse they are about ten dollars.

how long is the venting, does it exceed 20 feet, how many elbows. Make sure the outside hood is clean
