The repair manual 787207L can be obtained for about $20 dollars at the following site: Sears PartsDirect but I can provide more specific information for free.

The first image below is the wiring diagram for your dryer and it may be helpful to you in diagnosing this problem. If an electric dryer is running but not heating then the thermal fuse is okay. The no heat problem can be caused by the timer, operating thermostat, thermal cutoff, hi-limit thermostat, element or even the motor switch.

The thermostats, thermal cutoff and element can be checked for continuity if you have access to a volt/ohm meter. These parts can also be bypassed with a small insulated jumper wire to check. Use caution if you try this.

Something to try first is checking the circuit breakers to the dryer. It is possible for one breaker to trip and leave the dryer 120 volts to run on but not have the 240 volts to heat with. Turn the breakers off and then back on and see if you get lucky.

The other images will help you access the heating element. Remember to unplug the dryer first.

I hope this information helps you resolve this problem.

I tracked it down to my heating element having a resistance in the MOhm range instead of Ohm range. Now I am looking for the procedure where the replacement of blower seals is given.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

There are several components that control the motor and the burner operation located inside the control panel. There is thermistor that monitors the temperature located under the dryer, a control board, motor relay and heater relay inside the control panel. You will need to place the control panel in the service position to access the control board and motor relay. Remove the left and right end caps and then the screw at the bottom of each end cap. See image below to remove the end cap covers.

When start is pressed, the control board must first detect the push to start button was pushed, once the control senses start was pushed, the control board must provide 48 volts DC to the motor relay. The motor relay must close in order to keep the motor running. The thermistor can also prevent the motor from staying on also if the resistances are not correct. See image below.

I added an image below with the wiring diagram and other related information. The start sense voltage must be verified (120 volts) when start is pushed. The DC voltage supply at the motor relay must be checked across two pink wires with a black strip for the 48 volts DC and the thermistor should be disconnected and measured for proper resistance. NOTE: I do not recommend making any voltage measurement unless you have experience and feel safe and confident in doing so; otherwise I suggest calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your dryer.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

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 .
