Question and Answers

Q:

How do I install the idler pulley on my Kenmore dryer model 11086165100?

A:

Replacing the idler pulley is a good do it your self project. I have provided you with a complete step by step guide. The pictures may vary slightly. You will want to label the wires on the door switch before you remove them. If you are going to replace the idler you may consider a new belt also. The parts for your dryer can be purchased for this link. Sears Parts Direct

Q:

Why won't my electric dryer produce any heat?

A:

First, the dryer requires 220 volts supplied to the dryer or it won't heat. There is two (2) house circuit breakers dedicated for the dryer. One breaker protects line one voltage (L1) and the other breaker protects line two voltage (L2). If one of the two breakers trips the dryer will run but it will not heat. The heating element requires 220 volts (both L1 and L2 voltages) in order to heat, and the motor only needs 120 volts or line one (L1) voltage to run. The clicking noise is the timer motor operating one the timer is set with door closed.

The failure could be the timer, voltage supply, burnt wire, motor centrifugal switch or the high limit thermostat or the operating thermostat, which ever thermostat that you did NOT replace.

I recommend locating both breakers dedicated for the dryer and flip both breakers OFF and back ON 2-3 times and then restart the dryer and check for heat.

If it does not heat the voltage supply at the dryer should be verified using a volt/ohm meter. There should be 220vac present when measuring the voltage across the two (2) outside terminals where the power cord attaches to the back of the dryer.

NOTE: I do not recommend checking voltages unless you feel safe and confident in doing so without getting electrocuted. Use extreme caution when checking voltages.

The failure could be a burnt wire connection at the terminal block where the power cord connects too.

Use extreme caution when checking voltages. I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your dryer.
