I do not have access to the wiring diagram on that older dryer model. That dryer probably does not use a transformer or a relay. I see a timer and a push-to-start switch on the parts diagram. The heating failure that you are having could be caused by a failed timer, a bad operating thermostat or an open high limit thermostat. I recommend that you unplug the dryer and check the operating thermostat and the high limit thermostat since you already replace the element. Here is a video that shows how to check for continuity through a thermal fuse: Thermal Fuse Testing . You can use that same procedure to check the continuity through the operating thermostat on the blower housing and the high limit thermostat on the side of the heater housing. If either of those thermostats are "open" then they will need to be replaced. You can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect website. Be sure that you unplug the dryer before accessing internal components and replacing parts.

This may help you resolve that heating failure in your dryer. If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will try to assist you further.

If you get to a point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair the dryer, you can schedule one through this link: Sears Home Services .

Lyle, Thank you for your reply I will show it to my technician when he returns next week. In reading it, however, I believe he has tried all of the things you suggested and still no luck. The original question he wanted to ask may not have been relayed to you clearly so let's try this again. The question we needed answered is: On the wiring diagram on the back of my dryer there is an "R", he needs to know what the R stand for and where in the dryer is it? I took a photo of the wiring diagram on the back of the dryer. I can send it to you if you let me know how to do that. Thank you so much, Jean

Lyle, I tried adding an image. I clicked on "Add an image", located the photo of the wiring diagram,clicked on it but then it only gave me 2 options (open & cancel) I chose open. Then I got an hourglass on the screen and waited until it went away. I'm assuming the photo did not get attached. I called the 800 number but the recording said you were closed.

Yes, that's ok. I need to get this done soon as my tech is returning today to finish the job. I'm assuming my question regarding "What does the 'R" stand for on the wiring diagram and where is it located in the machine" cannot be answered unless the diagram is viewed? Let's give this a try; I'll be looking for your email. Thank you very much.

I just received the image. I posted it below this response. That "R" just indicates that a red wire that is attached to that spade on the timer. The switch beside that R is an internal contact in that dryer timer. The chart beside your wiring diagram shows that the contact (Y - R) should be closed in the normal heating cycle. This should help you technician. If you need more assistance, let us know.
