Question and Answers


Why won't my Kenmore electric dryer on heat to 120 degrees?


First, make sure the venting system is not restricted. I recommend disconnecting the vent hose from the back of the dryer and dry one load of clothes. If it dries twice as fast would confirm a restricted venting system. With the vent hose disconnected the temperature should be about 150 degrees coming out the rear exhaust when set on HIGH heat. If the temperature blowing out the exhaust is not around 150 degrees, the problem could be the heating element, bad door seal, bad drum seal, bad operating thermostat, bad high limit thermostat or temperature switch. The temperature switch can be tested by using an ohm meter. With the dryer unplugged, disconnect the violet and blue wire from the temperature switch. Place the ohm meter leads across the two terminals of the temperature switch and set the temperature switch to high heat. The ohm reading should have a minimum measurement of 10,000 ohms. The heating element should have a resistance reading of 7.8- 11.8 ohms of resistance. See image below.
