Thank you for your inquiry on your Kenmore Dryer, Model: 110.86984110. From reviewing the details on your model,f your dryer is running but not heating, the thermal fuse cannot be the problem. If it fails, the dryer will not run at all. If you have 240 volts to the dryer and you have checked the other safety switches, I would suspect the element is open. To check the element, disconnect the power and remove the red wire’s from the element terminals. Now check the terminals for continuity. If you do not get a reading, the element is open and will need to be replaced. I hope this will help you.

Safety Warning: Before beginning the repair, disconnect the direct power supply to the dryer to prevent the risk of injury or any electrical shock.

If you don’t feel comfortable or confident in this repair, then you can have it repaired at home by a sears technician. I have the included a link to the website: Sears Home Services or call 1-800-469-4663.

I hope this answered your question. Thank you for contacting SearsPartsDirect.com, and have yourself a wonderful day.

First I recommend checking the breakers. An electric dryer will run if only one of the 120 volt legs of 240 volt power is supplied to the dryer. If the second leg of 120 volt power is missing, then the dryer will not heat.

If the breaker is ok, the fuse could be the problem but it could also be an open element, a thermostat or motor switch (see diagram). A meter will be required to check these components. Unless you feel very confident in your repair skills and have a meter, a technician will be needed to make these checks. I'm listing a site you can access, to have a tech come out. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services . If you would like more assistance, additional details will be needed.

I am having the same problem. Dryer will not heat at all. Element reads 10 ohms. The thermostat operates correctly (closed circuit up to 150 degrees then goes open circuit above 150 degrees). The high limit thermostat and thermal cutoff switch both have continuity. There is only 120v read from each side of the heating element to ground. What else can I check? Can you provide a wiring diagram? Thanks Eric
