Q:

Kenmore Electric dryer model #11096573200 stopped getting hot during cycle 11096573200 Kenmore Electric dryer

A:

Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com
 
I am sorry and do understand your frustration when there is trouble with the dryer.
 
Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Kenmore Dryer model number 11096573200.


First thing for safety and concerns to keep dryer running well is to check the lint screen and vent of air flow going out of the house.   If clogged up it could cause heating problems on any dryer.
 
To prevent a Blocked Vent Hood, once a year: 
 
1.  Clean any lint blockage from the exhaust vent hood.
2.  Make sure the vent hood flappers move freely.
3.  Check for screen/grate openings that allow bird or rodent nests.
4.  Replace exhaust vent hood if damaged.
5.  Check for good air flow while running the dryer.
Note: Poor airflow or decreased airflow indicates further vent system cleaning is needed.

When it comes to Electric dryers here are all the options to check on when not heating.
All can be checked with an Ohm meter for its continuity open or closed.
 
You can see all these on the link below when clicked on.
 
Heating element which is key number 14
 
Thermal cut off switch which is both key 1 and key 34 together
 
ON the back of the blower is thermal fuse key number 59
 
Also on the back of the blower internal thermostat key number 42
 
Make sure you always keep  your lint screen areas clean.

I know that it can be very frustrating to have issues with your dryer. In order to be certain that the thermal fuse is working, you will need to test it. The thermal fuse can be tested with an ohm meter for continuity. It should have measure 0 ohms or continuity. If it does then I would suggest that you test the thermostat heater. The thermostat heater should have a resistance reading of 5600-8400 ohms as shown in the wiring diagram that I added in the image below. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

I borrowed a Fluke 115 True RMS Multimeter. I do not know how to use it. I put it on dc and got a reading of 0 when I tested the thermal fuse. I also tried to test it on continuity and I was able to get a continuous beep. I am guessing that the fuse is good. I do not know what part the thermostat heater is. I am guessing that it is part # 34 #3390291 on Sears Parts Direct. I also do not know what to set the multimeter on to get a reading of 5300-8400. Does my meter have such a setting? I used the setting that looks like a horse shoe. I got a reading of 0.2 and 6.94 on part # 34 (I took off two of the four wires and tried testing it top to bottom and side to side). Do I have to take these fuse like things completely off the dryer when I test them? I did a continuity check on all three fuse like parts on the back of the dryer. The bottom two gave me a continuous beep. The top one did Not give me anything. I did get a number reading on the top when I used the horse shoe. I also tried to do a continuity test on the element on the right. It did give me a beep. I did not take it out of the dryer.

I know that testing these can be very confusing. I have added three links below to help you. The frist two are videos that will show you how test the thermal fuse, the thermostat, the hi-limit thermostat and the heating element. The last link contains the instructions on how to use the mulit-meter. This will explain what the setting are and how to read them. Please let me know if you need anything else. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

I ordered the thermal cutoff (279769). It consisted of two parts, both attaching to the side of the heating element. My dryer now works. I am also going to take the top and front off of the dryer to try and vacuum the motor area. Thank you for all your help.
