You need to replace the 2 solenoid coils on the burner valve . When one of them gets hot from electricity going thru it , it opens ( shorts internally ) . After the dryer cools down , they will work again until they warm up , then , no heat . Take your complete model number , when you get the parts .

KENMORE DRYER JUST STOPPED HEATING UP WHAT CAN I DO TO REPAIR IT?


Replace the Heating Element. The heating element is usually located behind a panel on the back. To replace you will need to remove the back cover of the dryer, then locate the heating element. The heating element is screwed into place and is easy to unscrew and replace. Be sure to have the dryer unplugged while doing this.
Here is the part for it:

Kenmore dryer not heating replaced element


You need to test the thermal overload, When elements go they can damage the overloads, You can do it easily with a multimeter and they are not expensive to replace. There may be one or 2 of them and can be found inline with the element wiring.

Replaced the heating element of our Frigidaire Gallery Dryer, model # GLER331AS2 and still not heating. What next?


Hello,
The next thing to check is going to be the HIGH LIMIT THERMOSTAT it fits onto the outside of that round housing where the element is.To check it DISCONNECT POWER TO DRYER open up the dryer as you did to replace the heat element and remove the 2 wires from it,use a multimeter set a low ohms rating and check thermostat for continuty with ZERO ohms resistiance on the 2 terminals on that t-stat. IF that t-stat checks good, next check the cycling t-stat in same manner. IT's going to be in the housing where the blower wheel goes and not on the round housing. If that too checks to be good replace timer

Good luck,i hope i have been able to help you fix your dryer,

Electric dryer spins no heat, replaced heater element and high limit thermostat, tested thermal fuse and it does have 0 ohms, thermistor reads ~50 ohms.


in addation to checking the high limit t-stat have you checked the thermal cut off (the small t-stat) on the heater housing where the element fits into, the high limit t-stat and the thermal cut off BOTH shoud have 0 ohms (the thermal fuse is in the blower housing) the cut off is on the heater box, if you have checked those to be good, check that the heat relay on the control board is closing and sending power to the element, if not replace the control, if all above are good then the motor switch is bad and not sending power to the element(thats a built in safety feature so the dry would never heat when the motor isnt running)the element of course heats only when 240 volts ac is to the element ,120vac from the relay on control through the high limit t-stat then through the thermal cut off finally to the element and 120vac from the motor switch for a comined 240 vac

I have a Kenmore Series 80 electrical dryer. It isn't getting hot/drying. I had this problem 4 years ago and the tech who fixed it said i shouldn't have the same problem for 10 years. Sounds like the...


The problem most likely is the thermal cut-off . This is the small t-stat lookin piece , located on the upper portion of the element housing . You can unplug the dryer , remove the 2 wires , connect them togather , plug the dryer back in , to test . If the dryer then heats , replace the thermal cut-off . If still no heat , then possible bad element . Also see

Kenmore Model 110.96585200 No heat!


You probably have a bad thermal cut-off . This is the small thermostat , located at the top of the element housing . This " thermostat " should read infinate resistance ( no resistance ) . You can put the 2 wires togather , and see if heat comes on . pt # 3399848 . Both thermostats , should read 0 resistance . They are normally closed . The thermal cut-off , will not reset itself , if open . This is a safety t-stat , for when dryer gets too hot , and will have to be replaced .

The dryer turns on but no heat is this the heating element or something else?


Most likely it is the element. The only way to be sure is to visually inspect it.
