If an electric dryer runs but doesn't heat then the first thing to do is check the two circuit breakers supplying power. If one breaker trips the dryer will have 120 volts to run the motor but not have 240 volts for heating. The other likely causes of the no heat problem is the control thermostat, thermal cut-off and high limit thermostat. The control thermostat is located on the blower housing. The high limit and thermal cut-off are located on the heater box. Each of these three parts can be checked for continuity if a meter is available. Remember to unplug the dryer first. You can access these parts by removing the rear panel. I hope this helps. You can reply with any additional details or questions for further assistance.

I know that it can be very frustrating to have your dryer stop working properly. Based on your symptom, your dryer may not be starting due to one of several different possible component failures. I added an image below with the Start Circuit traced and I circled all the components in Red that must be closed and have continuity in order to complete the path of line one (L1) voltage and Neutral to the motor. If any one of the components is open, replace that component. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before checking the components for continuity with an Ohm meter. Note: disconnect the wires from the component before checking it for continuity. Remove the rear panel in order to access and test the thermal fuse. It's very likely to have an open thermal fuse. See image below.

It could have one of the following failures:

  • Thermal fuse
  • Door Switch
  • Lack of proper voltage (220 volts is required)

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 Services . I hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

To remove the heater housing:

  1. Unplug the dryer.
  2. Pull the dryer away from the wall so that you have room to work in the back.
  3. Disconnect the dryer vent hose from the back of the dryer.
  4. Remove the screws that hold the back cover in place and set the cover to the side.
  5. Remove the lint filter and the two slot head screws that hold the lint filter opening to the internal frame.
  6. Pop the top of the dryer open and remove the one 5/16" hex head screw that holds the top of the heating element strap to the frame.
  7. Remove the wires from the thermostat that is mounted to the heater housing.
  8. Lift the heating element case up about 1/2" to disengage the hooks at the bottom that hold it in place. Then pull the bottom of the heating toward you slightly while sliding it down. This will allow you to remove the heating element and housing.

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 Services .

There are no clips on this case, it appears that the heating element case does not come apart at all. I can feel an almost inaccessible screw around the back that seem to be screwed into the heating element. So I'll have to try and remove that.

Hello, If the screws come in from the back you will need to remove the drum to access them. These screws will be on the back bulkhead. I am including a video below that demonstrates removing the drum. I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance please reply to this post. Landell
