Q:

heating element removal from the housing. model # 11062992102 11062992102

A:

Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com
 
I am sorry and do understand your frustration when needing information on the dryer.
 
Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Kenmore Dryer model number 11062992102.

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.

I have the picture of the heating element on the link below.   The casing/housin is key number 46 and the heating element is key number 14.   You need to unscrew the heater box bracket which is key number 50.   Unscrew that screw from the bracket and the heating element shoud just slide out.

If you have any trouble with the dryer then run an ohm meter to your thermal fuse which is key number 59.   Sometimes that is part of the problem when other problems for a dryer occurs.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

I added an image below to reference.

When the start button is pushed, the control board must receive the 120 start sense signal at P1-5 connector. The voltage is checked across P1-5 (blue/black) and the white wire at P2-1 connector. If the control does not receive 120 to the start sense; the dryer will not remain running because it doesn't detect Start being pushed.

If you do measure 120 across P2-1 and P2-1 wires, the next thing to check is for the 48 volts DC across the two pink/black connected to the motor relay. The relay must receive 48 volts DC in order to close the motor relay in order to complete the 120 volts to the motor so it will continue to run when Start is released.

Press Start and release it and then see if 48 volts DC is measured across the two pink/black wires connected to the motor relay. If 48 volts DC is measured, replace the motor relay. You could swap the the motor relay with the heater relay and see if will remain running too.

If you do not measure 48 volts DC, the control board is most likely faulty.

Since the thermistor measures approximately 10K Ohms and it's new control, I suspect a fault motor relay or possibly the board is not getting the 120 VAC start signal when Start is pushed.

Note: I do not recommend measuring voltages unless you have experience and feel safe and confident in doing so; otherwise I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your dryer.

Check the things I have covered here and if I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Joey, Thanks for your response. I went ahead and verified that I have 120 volts AC between terminals P1-5 and P2-1. I still have no DC voltage at all across pink/black wires to motor relay or red/white wires to heater relay. Several days before learning what voltage should be there I did switch motor and heater relays but obviously was no help. I am still curious how the thermister could cause loss of motor drive, maybe if you could help me out here as I would like to know. I did remove thermistor even though resistance check was in spec and noticed some of the black plastic shell around it has come off and you can see some orange of the thermistor. I really can't see how this would be hurting anything, your thoughts. So with this update I am hoping for some more feedback before I call Sears parts back and ask for another control. Thanks, Scott

A:

Scott: If the thermistor does not measure within a certain parameter the control board will not allow the dryer to continue to run when start is released. I would disconnect the thermistor and re-measure the resistance and then connect it and go up to the control board and disconnect the P2-3 connector and re-measure the thermistor resistance across P2-3 (red) and P2-1 (white) and confirm it measures the same resistance. At ambient room temperature of 70 degrees it should measure 11.9K Ohms; at 80 degrees it should measure 9.2K Ohms. If you�re getting the start sense voltage and the thermistor is within the parameter and the control is not supplying the 48 VDC., I suspect a faulty control board. A faulty thermistor or thermistor circuit will prevent the motor from staying on when start is released.

Joey, I did as you asked and thermister value is in spec or very close measuerd at P2-3 to P2-1. I measure around 11.5K ohms and the house was around 70 degrees. I called Sears parts dept again and told them about our conversation. I advised them that with my thermistor value being in line and all other checks i have done that we believe the control I received is faulty. They have sent another one out and should be here in 5-7 days. I will let you know in week or so if this new control fixes my dryer. Thanks.
