Question and Answers

Q:

Stops heating, timer runs rapidly. 11062972100 Kenmore Dryer

A:

Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com
 
I am sorry and do understand your frustration when there is a trouble with the dryer.
 
Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Kenmore Dryer model number 11062972100.
 
This sounds like a vent (lint) problem or a thermostat problem.  I see also on this model that there is a heater relay switch on the side of the timer.  Heater relay key number 15 on the link at the bottom.

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.

When it comes to Electric dryers here are all the options to check on when not heating.
All can be checked with an Ohm meter for its continuity open or closed.
 
You can see all these on the link below when clicked on.
 
Heating element which is key number 14
 
Thermal cut off switch which is both key 47 and key 48 together
 
ON the back of the blower is thermal fuse key number 59
 
Also on the back of the blower internal thermostat key number 42
 
Make sure you always keep  your lint screen areas clean.

Q:

Why is my dryer not heating?

A:

First, unplug the power cord from the dryer. Use a putty knife to release the clips holding on the front lower panel, #46”. Remove the wires from the heating element & check the resistance with your meter, you should read between 7.8 & 11.8 ohms. The thermal cutout & high limit should both read 0 ohms (closed). The thermister should be about 10k ohms. Click on the images provided for details.

How do you get to the heating elements, thermal fuse and relay? I've removed 5 scres from the back and 3 screws from the control panel & top. The back panel seems part of the dryer body?

Hello Shari. The back panel on that dryer is not designed to be removed. I recommend that you replace those screws in the back panel. Remove the bottom front service panel to access the heating element (with the dryer unplugged). Here is a link for a repair guide that shows how to remove that bottom front service panel: How to Replace a Dryer Thermistor. The repair guide shows how to replace a thermistor (temperature sensor). The 1st two steps show how to remove the bottom front service panel. Once you have that panel off, you can access the heating element. The thermal fuse is on the blower housing beside the thermistor in that repair guide. That thermal fuse would prevent the dryer motor from running. It would not prevent the dryer from heating. There is a thermal cut-off fuse on the side of the heater housing that will prevent the dryer from heating. You can check that fuse with a volt/ohm meter. Also check the high limit thermostat on that heater housing. The thermistor can be checked as well. It should measure around 10K ohms (10,000 ohms) at room temperature. The heater relay is in the console. Remove the plastic end caps from the console. Remove the screws that you will find under those end caps that secure the console to the top panel. You can then pull the console slightly forward to release it and flip it up and back to access the heater relay. These tips may help you fix the dryer. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

Hello Colleen,

I would like to assist you with your dryer heating element install. The first thing to do is to unplug the dryer from the wall. Remove the lower panel from the front of the dryer. You will see the element to the right, in the bottom of the cabinet. Label the two wires that are connected to the element tabs on the left side of the element and take a picture with a phone or digital camera. The image will help you when it comes time to put it back together. Remove the screws that I have circled in the attached diagram and slide the old element out. Installation is the reverse of removal.

Please let me know if you would like any further assistance.
