A:

That heater circuit in your dryer is traced in red on the wiring diagram in the first image below.

I recommend that you check begin the troubleshooting by checking the voltage supply to the dryer. The dryer motor will run if only the L1 leg of 240 volt power is supplied to the dryer. If that second L2 (120 volt) leg of power is missing, the dryer will not heat. Check your house circuit breakers or house fuses first. If you find no problems there, I recommend that you carefully check the voltage at the dryer outlet using a volt/ohm meter. The second image shows the voltage that you should measure at the outlet. NOTE: You should only check that live outlet voltage if you are completely confident in your technical ability to measure it. Wear electrical safety gloves and safety goggles when making that live voltage check .

If the outlet is okay, I recommend that you unplug the dryer and remove the bottom front service panel as shown in the third image. Check the resistance of the heating element as shown in this brief repair video: Dryer Element Testing . That element should measure between 7 and 13 ohms of resistance. If it is bad, it will need to be replaced. If that element is okay, you can check the high limit thermostat and the thermal cut-off fuse for continuity.

If all of those components are okay, then you could have a problem with the heater relay on that control board or with the thermistor (temperature sensor). You can check that thermistor for resistance. It is shown in that third image. You may need to remove the lint duct assembly as shown in the 4th image to access that component. If that thermistor is okay, you could bypass that heater relay for a brief test. The 5th image shows how to open the console to access that control board. Connect the wires going to and from that heater relay on the control board together. Tape them with electrical tape to prevent them from shorting to the metal cabinet or control board. Reassemble the dryer and briefly start it to see if the element heats. If it does, then you will probably need to replace that control board if you found no problems with the thermistor or that thermistor circuit. You may want to check that thermistor circuit from the control board to rule out a wire harness problem before replacing that control board.

NOTE: Do not continue to operate that dryer with the heater relay bypassed. Unplug the dryer and restore that wiring to the original configuration following that brief test.

You can order parts from this page: Kenmore Dryer 110.62066101 Parts . Be sure that you unplug the dryer before accessing and replacing internal components.

Q:

Why is my Kenmore electric dryer model # 110.62066101 not heating?

A:

Why is my Kenmore electric dryer model # 110.62066101 not heating?

There are 4 parts you can check that might be causing your dryer not to heat:

Heating Element: Set your multimeter to the R x 1 resistance scale. Touch each meter probe and to one end of the element. If you receive a reading of infinite resistance, then your heating element is no longer functioning properly and you will have to replace it.

Thermal Fuse: Set your multimeter to the R X 1 setting. Take each of your meter's probes and touch one to each terminal. You are testing for continuity, and you should receive a reading of either zero or infinity. At room temperature, testing the thermal fuse should produce a reading of zero. But if a thermostat is tested when it is heated to its limit, a reading of infinity should be produced. It's recommend that you test your thermostat at room temperature.

Thermostat:Set your multimeter to the R X 1 setting. Take each of your meter's probes and touch one to each terminal. You are testing for continuity, and you should receive a reading of either zero or infinity. At room temperature, testing the thermostat should produce a reading of zero. But if a thermostat is tested when it is heated to its limit, a reading of infinity should be produced. It's recommend that you test your thermostat at room temperature.

Timer Motor: Dryer timer assemblies are located behind the control console panel. You may only have to remove the screws securing the front control panel in place, or, depending on your model, your may have to remove the rear panel behind the control panel.

Label the wires connecting to your timer motor so that you will be able to correctly reconnect them later. carefully remove the wires. Do not pull on the wire itself. Instead, use needle nose pliers to pull gently on the wire connector.

Set your ohmmeter to the R x 1 setting. Take each probe and touch it to one wire. A normal reading for most dryers is in the 2000 to 3000 ohms range.If the reading you receive from testing your timer's motor differs greatly from the range presented here, then you should replace your timer motor, or the entire timer assembly.

If you do not feel comfortable testing these parts, I recommend calling a technician to diagnose and repair your dryer.

Q:

Why won't my dryer start?

A:

I assume it will accept cycles, options and the modifiers when the buttons are pushed, but won't start when the "Start" button is pushed.

There could be one several possible failures preventing the dryer from starting:

  • An opened thermal fuse
  • A broken belt
  • Failed broken belt switch
  • Bad door switch
  • Failed motor
  • Loose wire connection
  • Failed electronic control board

I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your dryer.
