I think on your machine the lower thermostat connected to one terminal of the element, you have a wire coming from the thermal cut off down to the top terminal of the lower thermostat, a wire from the lower thermostat to the timer, and a wire going to the other terminal of the element.
You probably have the wire from the cut-off correct as it won't reach the other terminals. You have crossed the other 2 wires. This caused 240V to short across the lower thermostat and burned it out.
You will need a new Hi-limit thermostat, which will include the upper cut-off as well. They come as a set part# 279816. This will be a little different because the new hi-limit will not connect directly to the element. There will be all the wire ends and instructions with it that you need to get it hooked up correctly.
There should be a wiring diagram inside the console of the dryer that shows which wires go where, but I am sure you have crossed the 2 wires below the hi-limit switch.
Post back if you need any help.
Thanks/Mike

believe that model has a relay under console..pull console end caps off remove screw on each end roll console back..if your model has an electronic bd it also has a heat relay it will be the one with 2 large red wires.. a quick ck would be to unplug power remove the red wires and tape bear ends together pug back up turn on dryer if it heats unplug and exchange the 2 relays the one with the blue wires is the motor relay and is same as heat relay try again if motor fails to start bad relay if motor starts bad control bd

Yes, hook it up, but before you do that Vacuumn every piece of lint out of the cabinet. Also check TCO and check the thermostats for continuity. They should all read zero ohms.If one of them is open, replace it.

Also use your ohmmeter to check the heating element, It should not show an open condition.

Heating element repair on mod 110.62622101


That depends on what's wrong with the heating element. Are the heating coils broken in any spots? If so it's better to junk the entire element and get a new one.

Dryer work but have no heat/kenmore mod:110 70982990


A burned out heating element is the most common cause. Other electrical components are also possible. Check the element first.

Kenmore dryer 110.86864100 - Where is the moisture sensor?


Ain't no moisture sensor. This is is not an electronic sensing machine. It uses another method to determine dryness. An orange wire connects to the base of the heating element. The timer motor is driven by power from it in auto dry. The timer motor is VERY slow. Slower than most dryer timer motors.As the clothes get dryer the heat is not needed so the element is turned off by the control thermostat which is mounted next to the skinny white fuse on the blower housing. This allows for the turtle like motor on the timer to advance. Once the clothes get to the point of dryness the heater stays off way longer and the timer motor advances on over to the cool down and carry on over to the end of cycle. So the clothes won't always be dry due to factors like lint buildup in the blower housing, venting to outside and so forth. having said that my mom bought a brand new Kenmore dryer and I set it on 55 minutes timed drying. At the end of that them clothes is still damp. I then set it to auto dry high heat and that usually gets em dry. I think the main probo with this dryer is the thermostat ain't set as high as older models to keep the heat at a moderate temp so that the limits won't blow on models in apts and such. Just a theory.

Dryer is not heating up. yesterday the dryer would not turn on, the black wire on the cord had burned in half. bought a new cord, dryer turns on but no heat. circuit breaker was not tripped. turned it off...


These are pretty simple to fix. Take the service panel off and check the heater elementthemobilian_1392.jpg
The limits and element is all in one nice little bundle and only 2 screws to mess with.
Note: the control stat is mounted on the blower housing, these limits on the heater element only tripp if there is air restrictions.

I have your service manual right ova heah: Amana dryer tech service brochure

I have a Kenmore Dryer mod. 96281100 which runs but no heat. I tested power input at 240v, thernal fuse closed, thermal hi temp closed, element closed and not grounding, thermostat cut-off closed, and...


If you have 240 VAC across the element, but the element is not heating, then you have a bad element. If you don't have 240 VAC at the element, then work your way back with the voltmeter to find where the voltage is dropping

My Kenmore Elite Electic dryer mod #11063012101


OK .. on your dryer it does have a bi-metal switch that turns on and off the element....if your dryer produces heat... nothing wrong with element.. a thermostat w/wire sensor is the only way to check for your heat if its working correctly.. the other is to check if your clothes coming out of your washer is it wetter then before.. might need to spin one more time.. good luck..

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!
