Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the dryer. Without a model number, I can only give you general advice. If this is an electric dryer, I recommend checking the outlet for proper voltage. Sometimes the double breaker will partly trip. Flip the breaker off then back on. Then check the operation. If the dryer still does not heat, the problem could be one of the following components. Thermal fuse, thermostat, high limit, cutoff, element, timer, or control board. To check these components you will need a meter capable of checking ohms. If you would like to diagnose and repair the dryer, I should be able to assist you with that. However, I will need a model number to provide you with the needed information.

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 .

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Mark,

I am sorry you are having a problem with the dryer. At this time, we do not have a technical assistance hot line for customers. If you would like to reply below with the model number and details of what the problem is I will be happy to assist you with diagnosing the dryer. It is also helpful to have a volt ohmmeter. Using the volt ohmmeter ensures the correct part is ordered.

Mark,

Thank you for posting the model number. On the front left side below the door, there is an inspection port. Remove the cover on the inspection port and start the dry on timed dry high heat. After you start the dryer look into the inspection hole. You should see the ignitor glow and the flame kick on. The flame should stay on until the temperature comes up to roughly 160 degrees at the vent. If the flame goes out before reaching the cut off temperature, I recommend disconnecting the dryer from the vent. Then start the dryer to see if the flame stays on longer. If it does, I recommend cleaning the vent to the outside. It has a blockage somewhere in the line. If it still goes out before reaching temperature, I recommend checking the lint screen and the internal vent and blower wheel for blockage.

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark T.

Thank you for submitting your question. Alina has provided you with good information. If the dryer is heating without the vent hose on, I recommend cleaning the vent ducts for the dryer. If the igniter and fuse are good, then I recommend running checks on the two thermostats and the thermal cut-off. Also, here is a great video to help troubleshoot why the dryer may not be heating. I hope this information helps. Please reply back to this thread if you require further assistance with this repair. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Thank you for submitting your question. Your thermal fuse (key #39, image one)is located behind the dryer on the outside of the blower wheel housing. Here's a video on how to access and replace it. Your dryer has an electric start igniter (key #4, image two) in the burner assembly parts. Pilot lights haven't been used on dryers for quite some time now. If the dryer is not heating you could be experiencing an issue with the (image one):

  • Thermal fuse (key #39)
  • Operating thermostat (key #41)
  • High limit thermostat (key #34)
  • Thermal cut-off (key #31)
Or the burner assembly which consist of (image two):
  • Igniter (key #4)
  • Coil valves (keys #13 and 14)
You'd need an ohms meter in order to check these parts for continuity to see which component has failed. The thermal fuse is a good place to start. With your ohms meter you'll want to get a reading of zero ohms for the thermal fuse, thermostats, and the thermal cut-off. The ohms reading for the igniter and valves are provided in image three. I hope this information helps. Please reply back to this thread with more details if you require further assistance. Thank you for choosing Manage My Life.
