Question and Answers

Q:

is it better to go through the front or back to replace thermal fuse on housing 11086983810 Kenmore Electric dryer

A:

Thank you for choosing sears I would be happy to help you with your dryer. Upon researching model 11086983810; in order to get to the thermal fuse you have to remove the front portion of the top cover and remove the front panel. Then you would need to remove the lower service panel, after this you will have access to the thermal fuse and all the internal parts of your dryer.

I trust this information will help you, have a great day.

Q:

Dryer not heating 11086983810 Kenmore Electric dryer

A:

Thank you for choosing SearsPartsDirect. I will be more than happy to assist you with your Kenmore dryer.

From the information you have provided above, the most probable cause would be the thermal fuse. This will cut any heat from the dryer. Part number is 3390719. Next I’d check the thermostat and if both check out okay. Than you’re looking at the heating element.

I hope you found this information useful. Again thank you for choosing Sears, we appreciate your business. Have a great day.

Q:

dryer not hot enough 110.86983810 Kenmore Electric dryer

A:

Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com. I regret to hear that you are having issues with your dryer and do understand your frustration. Glad to help out. Im looking at your model number 110.86983810 and If the dryer doesn't appear to be heating enough the most likely cause would be a clogged or restricted exhaust vent. Here are some tips that may help: 

Check the flexible vent hose behind the dryer for kinks or clogs.

Check the exhaust duct to the outside of the house for lint build-up or restrictions.

To verify if it's the dryer vent, try drying a medium load of towels on high heat with the flexible exhaust duct behind the dryer disconnected and the unit venting directly into the room. If the load dries significantly more with the exhaust vent duct system disconnected, then the restricted exhaust air flow is causing your issue. While the vent is disconnected during the above test, also check the temperature of the exhaust air coming out of the dryer with a thermometer. On most Kenmore and Whirlpool dryers, it should be cycling around 150 degrees F. If it is not cycling properly, you could have a thermostat problem. I hope this information helps.
