Hi, "F/H" indicates that either you have no water coming into the washer, or very little water.

If you have NO water coming into the wash tub after 30 seconds the error code is displayed.Check the following:

- Inlet water valve may be clogged. Clean inlet screens if necessary.
- Make sure water taps are on.
- Check inlet hoses for kinks or clogs.

If you HAVE water filling the wash tub, and after 8 minutes, 10.5 gallons of water has been detected by the flowmeter, but there has not been a detected a Pressure Switch trip, the inlet valves are turned off and the error code is displayed.Check the following:

- Verify Drain Pump operation.
- Verify Flowmeter operation.
- Verify the Pressure Switch hoses are intact and connected properly.

To access the Drain Pump - UNPLUG the washer and take the lower panel under the door off by removing the three screws under the bottom edge. HINT: Propping the front feet of the washer up can make access much easier. I use a couple small blocks of wood. With the screws removed, the panel should drop down then come off. If it sticks, tap either side and it should come free.The pump is located directly under the wash tub in the front of the washer.Verify the electrical connections are good and that the pump is running.

To access the Flowmeter and Pressure Switch ? remove the three screws in the top panel along the back of the washer.With the screws removed, the panel should slide back, then, lift off.The flowmeter will be located on the left-hand side of the washer (facing from the front) between the inlet valve and dispenser.It?s a small white plastic device with hoses attached.The pressure switch is located on the right-hand side of the washer in the rear.It is a round plastic device with electrical connections and a hose attached.

There should be a tech sheet directly behind the panel or attached to one of the interior cabinet walls.Please refer to this sheet to learn how to perform diagnostics, how to locate the components mentioned, and the specific measurements required determining if the components are good or bad.

Unable to locate replacement heating element part for Kenmore Dryer #592-89047-01. I have called every part replacement website, EVEN Kenmore's, and no one is able to locate this model OR it's parts.


592 means it’s manufactured by Samsung. Most Kenmore appliances have a 3 number prefix with a dot after it followed by 8 more numbers.

No heat in my kenmore elite dryer, model 11085872401(electric)everything else running, tested voltage at 240 ok. pulled the heating element. it looks like a small crack in the middle. Does that have any...


It means your element needs to be replaced, take it to the Kenmore parts store nearest you, and they will confirm that, and you can get a new one there unless they have to order one in.
Be sure to have the make and model and serial number of your dryer with you.

My gas dryer runs but no heat.


Most gas dryers use a surface-type ignitor, a ceramic element with traces that glow to ignite the gas and yours has failed. BTW, it's helpful to give model numbers so we don't have to guess.

DRYER HEATING ELEMENT


Kenmore dryers are manufactured by Whirlpool. In many cases the part numbers are identical between model numbers. Look at the dimensions of the heating element and compare part numbers. Chances are, the parts are identical.

Kenmore dryer will not heat


only 2 things can be wrong, the heater element is toast or one of the safety thermostats is fried, most likely it is the heating element. make sure its well connected(while unplugged!!!)

No heat in my stack-pak kenmore dryer. The element is ok and there are no broken cables/wires. 220 does come in to the unit and show up at the componets.


There is a thermal relay switch that is blown. Replace it.
Model number please and I will give you the part number.

Kenmore dryer doesnt heat


Nothing you did wrong! Probably needs a new heating element. Prices vary by model. Call Sears/Kenmore parts center nearest you. Tell 'em you need a heat element for your dryer. Be sure to provide your dryer's model number.

Unplug your appliance first before attempting repairs! Safety first and always!

Replacing the heating element


  • take the back off and it is in the metal case on the right. here is some visuals. 
  • the second picture shows the element pulled out of the canister. 
  • some of the newer dryers don't require you to remove the canister; there will be 4 screws on the back of the canister to remove the element shown as red dots in the 3rd picture.
  • if these pictures don't match what your dryer looks like then give me the model number of your dryer.
