Hi Tawnee,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

First, I recommend checking the breakers for your dryer. The dryer motor will run if only one of the 120 volt legs of 240 volt power is supplied to the dryer. If the second leg of 120 volt power is lost, the dryer will not heat. If the breakers are okay, I recommend checking the voltage at the outlet using a volt/ohm meter. The first image below shows the voltage readings that you should measure at the dryer outlet. NOTE: You should only take these live voltage readings if you are completely confident in your technical ability to safely test this outlet.

If the voltage at the outlet is okay, then I recommend checking the thermal cutoff, the operating thermostat and the high limit thermostat. As shown in the wiring diagram in the second image below, these three components are in the L1 voltage supply line between the timer and the heating element. To access these components, unplug the dryer and remove the back panel. The thermal cutoff (Key 21 in the third image below) and the high limit thermostat (Key 15) are located on the side of the heater box. Pull off at least one wire from each of these components. Measure the resistance across the leads of each component. You should measure near zero ohms (closed or continuity) on each one. If a component measures infinite resistance (open), then it will need to be replaced. You can test the operating thermostat (Key 8) in the same manner. If all of these components are okay, then I recommend checking the heating element (Key 17). You should measure between 7 and 12 ohms of resistance across the leads of the heating element with at least one wire pulled off. These checks may reveal the source of your heating problem.

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 .
