Question and Answers

Q:

Dryer heats on on Air Fluff, no heat selection 11068972892 Kenmore Electric dryer

A:

Thank You for contacting SearsPartsDirect.com. I do apologize for the delay in answering your question.
I know that it can be very frustrating to have issues with your dryer. If your dryer is heating all the time it would indicate a short in the heating circuit. You will have to unplug the dryer and remove the top the instructions are below. Now remove the wires from the heater relay it will be a red and black wire. With a volt ohmmeter set to ohms place the leads on the relay terminals. The reading you get should be ol or open. Now remove the wires from the heater. Place one lead on the heater housing and the other to each terminals of the heater. Your reading should be ol or open. If you get a reading other than ol on either one of these checks, that part will need to be replaced. If both parts test ok, the problem would be a wire is touching ground. You will have to inspect the harness for burs marks. 

If you need further assistance, please resumbit your question with additional details. Thanks for visiting SearsPartsDirect.com

I have an Amana electric dryer and it also heats on air fluff. here's what I think happened. I installed a new heating element (after the old one went bad) and the coil was touching the body, thereby blowing the house breaker. I think it also fused some switch on the control board. The heat relay was mounted on the control board but any tests I did on it was inconclusive. After replacing a couple thermal cut out fuses in the dryer that kept blowing, I realized the only thing left was the control board so I replaced and the problem was fixed.

The first thing to check would be the two circuit breakers. If one trips the dryer might still run but it wouldn't be able to heat. The wiring diagram below shows parts that might cause the not heating problem circled. If you have a meter to check resistance, continuity then I would suggest you check the thermal cut-off, hi-limit thermostat and element first for resistance/continuity. There is a way to by pass the control board and heater relay if you feel comfortable working with the wiring. Let me know if you wish to know more about this. 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 .
