Throwing Breaker 11086980800 Kenmore Electric dryer


Kenmore dryer heats up but no air or drum movement 86980800


Thank You for choosing Sears and being a valued member. It is unfortunate to hear that you are having issues with your dryer and I do understand your frustration. Glad to help out. I'm looking at your model number 11086980800 and first you will want to verify that the motor has powering going to it. Here is a link that will help with additional troubleshooting. From your description I suspect that the dryer has a failed thermal fuse since the dryer appears to not be power. If the temperature gets too hot the thermal fuse will disruption the power going to the machine. Just click the blue link above to be taken to the page. I trust this information will help you.


Thank you for choosing Sears

Thank you for your question.  I am sorry you are having a problem with your Kenmore 110.86980800 dryer.

Caution: Before attempting any repair, unplug the washer from the wall. 

If the dryer is running then the thermal fuse is okay. 

The not heating problem can be as simple as one breaker is tripped.  If one breaker is tripped then the dryer might have 120 volts to run the motor but not have 240 volts for the element.  First check the two circuit breakers supplying voltage to the dryer. 

The other possible causes of the no heat problem would be the control thermostat, hi-limit thermostat, thermal cut-off or even a bad element.  Each of these can be checked with a meter for continuity.  All of these parts are located behind the rear panel. 

You can reply below with any additional details for further assistance. 

You can also have the problem repaired in your home by a Sears technician.  Here is the link: Sears Home Services Dryer Repair
