Thanks for your question about the dryer with not heat. I will be happy to assist with this issue.
Although the heating element is the most common reason this dryer will not heat, there could be other reasons as well. Here are a few tips that will help; first be sure the dryer is supplied with proper voltage. It requires 220 volts minimum to produce heat, but only 110 minimum volts to run. Check the breaker box or fuse box to be sure both sides of breaker are on. Find the breaker, push both to off then back to on this will reset breakers. Now check to see if dryer heats.
If you still have no heat, the heating element is in back of the dryer. There is a service panel that you can remove to access the element. Always disconnect power supply before servicing appliance Unplug dryer, remove vent hose then panel. You will see two large red wires leading to the element that is inside a heat shield, be sure those wires are intact and not broken. (Do not confuse element wires with thermostat wires that are on side of element housing.) If you have a volt meter and feel confident in its use test for 220 volts or more across the two red wires. Be sure to wear safety equipment while testing voltages The dryer must be running and set to a heated cycle for testing. If there is correct voltage then the element id bad and should be replaced. Remove the housing assembly from back of dryer and install new element into housing, reattaching wires tightly. Reassemble and test again for proper operation.
I checked the pat number you emailed and it is correct for your model dryer. I hope this helps, should you need additional help reply with details. If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services .
