Q:

Kenmore Elite electric dryer intermittent heating 110.60994990

A:

Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com
 
I am sorry and do understand your frustration when there is trouble with the dryer.
 
Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Kenmore Dryer model number 110.60994990.

 
First thing for safety and concerns to keep dryer running well is to check the lint screen and vent of air flow going out of the house.   If clogged up it could cause heating problems on any dryer.
 
To prevent a Blocked Vent Hood, once a year: 
 
1.  Clean any lint blockage from the exhaust vent hood.
2.  Make sure the vent hood flappers move freely.
3.  Check for screen/grate openings that allow bird or rodent nests.
4.  Replace exhaust vent hood if damaged.
5.  Check for good air flow while running the dryer.
Note: Poor airflow or decreased airflow indicates further vent system cleaning is needed.

You checked the thermal fuse and the thermostat beside it so you were doing all the right things.   With the burnt/scorch mark on the board it sounds much to be the problem.   You've done it all and looked to be right in all you have done.

Even Heat assembly for model

Hi Larry, Thank You for your help. I changed the even heat Electronic control board PART NUMBER: 3976609. Now it wont heat at all! Please help again! I'm guessing I need to do the troubleshooting all over again but why would anything else quit working if all I have done is replace parts?

Thanks for the information about your dryer needing the thermal fuse replaced. Based on you description and what you have found, I would suggest that after you have replaced the fuse, check the venting to be sure it is clean and without any obstruction.
Access to all major cabinet components is through the front of the dryer the back does not come off. You have already accessed the thermal fuse and any other related components are freely accessed at this point. I would not over think this as the thermal fuse is a common failure. There are no dismantling instructions available for this model. I hope this helps, should you need additional assistance reply with added detail and I will be happy to respond. Here is a link to the thermal fuse for your convenience; Thermal Fuse

Thanks Ron H.

Thanks for the information. I see another post with the same issue. I have ordered the thermal fuse and also the thermistor. Checking the vent duct indicate some buildup of lint and maybe the cause. I will let you know if this works, once I get the replacement parts. I had checked the obvious items such as the door switch, push-to-start switch and also checked to make sure the electric heater elements were not grounded though on a different circuit. Thanks for the help.

I have a Kenmor 90 series electric dryer. After running for 20 minutes, it shut off like it was finished with the cycle, but is was not. I checked the fuse box to the house and reset. no luck or any type of action. Dryer light, Start button, nothing seems to be working. Any advise before i start diving into this issue? Thank you in advance for any info.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

As Anna suggested in the first response I will need to know the model number of your dryer in order to provide any model specific troubleshooting assistance.

Depending on the model of dryer you have; it could have a faulty even heat control board, motor relay or a faulty thermistor or loose thermistor circuit connection.

If the dryer has to sit for a short while before it will re-start, then it could have faulty motor or the motor is overheating due to a layer of lint covering the motor.

So that's what I can tell you at this point. I can give you more detailed help if you could provide me with the complete model number. The model numbers are typically located around the drum opening after opening the door. If you could supply me with that information I will be happy to assist you further.

Steve: Thank your for adding the model number. I see by the model number number that you have an Even Heat dryer. The motor is controlled by the even heat control board and and a motor relay inside the console. It could have a faulty motor relay or control board. There is also a heater relay in the control panel. You can swap the motor relay with the heater relay and see how it operates, if it continue to stop, it likely has a faulty even heat control board. To access the control; remove the left and right end cap covers. See image below. After removing the two end cap covers, remove the screw at the bottom of each end cap. Slide the control panel forwards and lift and hinge it over the rear panel. Disconnect the power cord before servicing. Swap the two relays and let me know how it operates.

Well, I finally got around to changing the relays. There is no difference in its operation, so I suppose the even heat control is faulty.
