Question and Answers

Q:

Sporadic Heating 11086874800 Kenmore Dryer

A:

Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I will be happy to help with your dryer. Upon researching model 11085087401; the first thing to check for is lint build up. Look in the exhaust hose and clean out any lint. Lint can restrict air flow. If air flow is restricted the clothes will get hot but stay damp. Without air flow the heat in the thermostat area will heat up quickly and the thermostat will cut the heating element before the clothes get hot. If all the lint is cleaned out and it still continues then it could be a thermostat or the heating element. These styles of dryers are still made the same way and the part layout remains very similar. The difference is the parts are newer and have more features.

Thank you for choosing Sears. We appreciate your business. Have a great day.

The dryer is heating so the problem is likely the timer resistor. On this model the timer advances when the thermostat shuts off the heat. If the dryer doesn't heat then the timer will not advance. The resistor can be seen and obtained from the following link: Resistor . The resistor can be checked with a meter if one is available. The resistor is located in the console attached to the timer. I hope this helps. You can reply with any additional questions or details for further assistance.

Dryer is heating. Would the resistor still be suspect? Also if I use it on a timed cycle, the timer works like it is supposed to. It heats up, cools down and shuts off after the buzzer.

If the dryer is heating and the timer doesn't advance through the cycle then the resistor is the first thing to check. You can us a meter to check resistance and if the circuit is open you have found the problem. Remember to unplug the dryer first.

From what you're describing it sounds like the heating element or the thermal fuse has failed. This type of testing will require using an ohmmeter. I am sending you 2 links that covers every possibility. The first link is for performing the diagnosis. The second link is showing access & the heating element replacement instructions. After reviewing these instructions 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 service

The timer will start working once the heating problem is solved.

The first responder's link has good info also but covers a different model.

Do I need to replace the heating element in my Kenmore dryer model 110.86874800 that is not producing any heat?

Second link; diy repair manual #787206L
