Question and Answers


Test dryer timer 110.86692800


Why won't my Kenmore dryer produce any heat?


An electric dryer must have 220-240 volts supplied to the heater or it will no heat.

First, locate the two (2) circuit breakers dedicated for the dryer inside the main circuit breaker box. Flip both circuit breakers OFF and back ON 2-3 times and then start the dryer and check for heat. If it continues to run and not heat, it could have one of many possible failures preventing your dryer from heating.

First, the voltage supply to the dryer must be confirmed at the back of the dryer where the power cord attaches. NOTE: I do not recommend checking voltages unless you have experience and feel safe and confident in doing so, otherwise I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your dryer. With a voltage meter Check across the Black (L1) wire to Red (L2) wire. These are usually the two outside wires at the terminal block were the power cord connects to the unit. It must have 220-240 volts in order to run and produce heat.

If 220-240 volts is present when measuring across the Black and Red (2 outside wires) the failure could be:

  • Heating element (key#14)
  • Timer
  • Operating thermostat (key#41)
  • High limit thermostat (key#34)
  • Motor centrifugal switch
  • Burnt wire connection

In order to test these components will require disconnecting the power cord and using an ohm meter to check the continuity across the two thermostats and heating element. You will need to disconnect at least one wire from the component before checking for continuity. You will likely find the heater, high limit thermostat or the operating thermostat with an open circuit. Remember to disconnect one wire from the component being tested for continuity.

I recommend calling a technician to diagnose and repair your dryer if resetting the two dedicated circuit breakers does not solve your problem of no heat.

Can I get a wiring diagram for a Lady Kenmore model 11086692800 dryer?


This is an older dryer and I do not have a copy of the wiring diagram that I can make a copy off to send you.

There is a wiring diagram and if you submit a specific question about the dryer operation then I can help you with this problem.

If the dryer will not run then I'd suggest first you check the thermal fuse on the blower exhaust.

If the dryer will not heat then I'd recommend you start with the operating thermostat, next to the thermal fuse, on the blower outlet.

These parts are located on the back of the dryer behind the rear access panel. Unplug the dryer first before removing the rear panel.

Submit another question with the problem you're having and we can assist you in solving it. We can tell you how to check and access any part on this dryer.
