Question and Answers

Q:

mn 11062904100 taking multiple cycles to dry load 11062904100

A:

Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I will be more than happy to help with your dryer. Upon researching model11062904100; you can unplug the dryer and remove the heat element when the dryer is not hot. With the element removed you can test the dryer for continuity using a multi meter, if the test reads continuity then the element is ok, otherwise if the element test reads no continuity then you may need to replace the element. I have posted a link of the element to view the link click here.

 

I trust this information will help you, we appreciate your business thank for choosing Sears.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern. Based on your symptom and details, the heating element could be broken or burnt in half and half the heating element could be shorted and welded to the heater housing causing half the heater to stay on continuously. Note: it's not abnormal for it to smell hot and like it�s burning after blowing the lint out of the dryer. The air movement will cause fresh air and lint to be drawn through the heater assembly and burn off and smell.

If the dryer is actually over heating, it could be a broken and shorted heating element (key#14), or a faulty operating thermostat (key#42). In order to access the thermostat and heater, remove the lower front access panel. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before removing the lower access panel.

If the heating element is not broken and shorted to the housing then I recommend replacing the operating thermostat (key#42) and the the High Limit thermostat (key#48). The parts can be ordered from Sears PartsDirect

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Our heating element is getting too hot and tripping the high-limit thermostat. The first time the dryer stopped heating, we replaced the heating element, and it didn't help. Last night we replaced both thermostats mentioned above and it started heating. My husband watched with the bottom access panel open because this was his first dryer repair and he wanted to make sure nothing burned. The heating element got white hot, my husband saw something pop, and the dryer stopped heating. We believe the heating element tripped the high-limit thermostat again. What would cause it to do this?

A:

Wolfprincess027: The heating element should never glow near white hot if there is enough air passing through the heater assembly. If you're certain the heating element is wired up correctly, it sounds like a lack of air flow through the heating element assembly. Make sure the vent system and lint trap is clear. If there is not enough air flow passing through the heater assembly it will cause the high limit to trip.
