Q:

How do I remove the dryer heating element? 11086273100 Kenmore Sears electric dryer

A:

Thank you for submitting your question. I know this installation information is important and I will be happy to assist you. First, disconnect the power to the dryer before performing any repairs.The heating element is located behind the dryer. Pull the dryer out, so you can get behind it and take the vent hose off. The remove the screws securing the back panel to the dryer and then remove the back panel. You should now be able to see the heater box (key# 5) and the heating element (key# 14) mounted underneath it. Remove the two wires attached to the heating element terminals. There will be a clip (key# 4) attached at the top of the heater box, that will need to be loosen. This clip is hidden and you'll need to take it out by feeling for it. It's held in place with a 5/16 hex head nut. With this clip loosen, you can lift the housing up to free the bottom tabs and remove it. With the housing out, you can remove the screws holding the heating element in place for removal. You should be able to replace the heating element at this point. Reverse this procedure reassemble. I hope this helps. Please reply back to this thread if you require further assistance. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Q:

Why is my Kenmore dryer running but not heating?

A:

On this model if the thermal fuse fails the motor will not come on. From what you described I suspect the heating element. Place your meter on ACVolts & go across the two connectors on the heating element with the dryer running. If you read 220volts the element needs replaced. Also, be sure to check supply voltage; an electric dryer will run but not heat if one of the double 30 amp breakers trip. Heating element part number; 4391960. Please see the wiring diagram below, the red line is the complete heating circuit. The 2 disk are operating thermostats & the white devise is the thermal fuse.

SAFETY NOTICE: Be sure to disconnect power to the appliance before performing any repairs. If you are not comfortable with doing any voltage checks that might be recommended, please contact your local service provider for repairs. Be aware that there could be sharp edges inside the appliance that could cause cuts or other injuries to yourself or others.
