Question and Answers

Q:

No heat or flow through heating element of Kenmore Dryer Model 11096284110 11096284110

A:

Thank you for your inquiry on your Kenmore Dryer, Model: 110.96284110. From reviewing the details on your model, There a few things to check when the dryer is not heating; starting with the power supply to the dryer. I would first check the breakers and be sure that both are in the on position. Find the breaker, flip both to off then back on. This resets the breaker and if problem dryer will heat. I suggest starting with the thermal fuse and working to heater then timer. I hope this helps you find the cause of the no heatingI have also include a link to a couple of videos on similar model of dryer which should be able to further troubleshoot the issue of the dryer not heating.

I know that it can be very frustrating to have issues with your dryer. The first thing to check is the two circuit breakers to the electric dryer. Sometimes one leg will trip leaving 120 volts for the dryer to run but not have 240 volts to heat with. Try turning each dryer breaker off and then back on. If the dryer will run but not heat and the breakers are not the problem then next I suggest you check the thermal fuse. On this particular dryer a bad thermal fuse will not prevent the motor from running. The thermal fuse is located behind the rear panel on the blower housing. Remember to unplug the dryer first before removing any panel. The thermal fuse can be checked for continuity with a meter or if a meter is not available then it can be bypassed. With the dryer unplugged you can remove the two wires off the thermal fuse and join them together. Put a little electrical tape around the connection to protect against shorts and see if the dryer will heat. If it does, then replace the thermal fuse. If it does not then you will need to check the thermostats, and the thermal cut-off for continuity. If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician.

I know that it can be very frustrating to have issues with your dryer. Since the start relay is clicking, it is likely closing to close the circuit and send run voltage to the dryer motor. The wiring diagram for your dryer is shown in the first image below with the drive motor circuit traced in red. I recommend that you unplug the dryer and check the thermal fuse first. This component could be blown and would prevent the drive motor from getting voltage. To access the thermal fuse, remove the back dryer panel (with the dryer unplugged ). The location of the thermal fuse is shown in the second image. It should have blue wires attached to it. You can check this component for continuity with a volt/ohm meter. Remove one or both wires and measure the resistance across the lead of the fuse.

You should measure near zero ohms of resistance (continuity). If you measure Ol (open load or infinite resistance) then the fuse is blown and will need to be replaced. You can verify that the dryer will run by connecting the wires that go to this fuse together with electrical tape (with the dryer still unplugged) and then reassembling the dryer and seeing if it will run when plugged back in. If it does, then replacing the thermal fuse (part 3390719) will fix your dryer problem. You can order this part from the Sears Parts Direct website. NOTE: Do not continue to run the dryer with this fuse bypassed. It is an important safety component that must be replaced. Also, check for a restriction or clog in the exhaust vent duct system that likely caused the thermal fuse to blow. An unresolved restriction in the vent system could cause the fuse to blow again shortly after replacing it.

If the thermal fuse is okay, you could have a bad start relay even though it is clicking. You could unplug the dryer and bypass the start relay in a similar manner to the thermal fuse to check this component. To access the start relay in the console, remove the screws on the back of the end caps of the console and you can then lift it off of the top panel (with the dryer still unplugged). If you don't feel comfortable doing this yourself, just click on this link to schedule service: Sears Home Services . I hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread.
