Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

I would first confirm the dryer is getting the proper voltage supply of 220 volts. I say this because the dryer will run on 110 volts but the heating element requires 220 volts to heat.

The second thing to check is the thermal cut off located on the upper side of the heating element housing. The high limit and operating thermostats rarely fail open. The high limit and operating thermostat will normally reset and close if they do open.

The thermal cut off can be disconnected and then tested for continuity across the two male terminals with an Ohm meter. If the dryer is getting the proper voltage (220) and the thermal cut off has continuity, disconnect the two red wires connected to the heating element and check the heating element for resistance/continuity.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

On Jan 16, 2013 You gave me some excellent troubleshooting tips that guided me to successfully discover & replace the heating element. Well I am having a No Heat issue with the same dryer. I have tested all the internal thermal switches, the fuse, the timer & the heating element and they all tested good. What elese would give a no heat issue? Thankyou Richard

Q:

Hot air blowing but dryer not tumbling 11096272100 Kenmore Dryer feature sheet

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 11096272100 and from your description it seems like the belt is possibly damaged or snapped. If you can hear the machine hum it is possible that the motor is working with out the belt on it turn the drum. You will need to remove the lint screen and 2 screws that are in the chute entrance. You will need to insert a putty knife or scraper to each corner under the top and that will release the spring clips holding the top to the cabinet. 

I have included a link to our PartsDirect page where you can purchase the part you need to complete your repair. Just click the blue link above to be taken to the page. If you have further questions please resubmit your question for further information.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.  I am sorry you are having a problem with your Kenmore dryer model 110.96272100.

 The only difference between Time Dry and the Automatic Dry cycles is that the timer motor will only be provided voltage when the operating thermostat opens when the dryer reaches operating temperature.  

I was not able to locate the exact wiring diagram for your older model dryer.  The voltage supply to the motor is completed when timer contacts BK and BU closes. Timer contacts BK and BU must remain closed or the motor will stop running. If it runs Okay in Time dry, it should also remain running in the AutoDry cycles too.

One timer contact BK and BU closes when the timer is set, the 120 volt power is then routed through the thermal fuse and terminates at the motor at terminal 4M. The Neutral return is routed through the door switch and terminates at the terminal 6M at the motor.  So, timer contact BK and BU must remain closed and the door must remain closed as well as the motor centrifugal switch contact 5M and 6M. When the motor starts, the motor switch 5M and 6M must remain closed or the motor will shut off. You should find a wiring diagram on the back of the dryer or inside the control panel.

If the motor is overheating, the motor overload will open and also cause the motor to shut off. It will not start again until the motor cools and the thermal overload resets.

 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.
