Q:

dryer needs new coil? 11096582100

A:

Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I can certainly understand how frustrating it can be when your Dryer is not drying your clothes. I did look into the model number you have provided and I have found a few parts that could be the issue. 

The first thing to try is to locate the two house circuit breakers dedicated for the dryer and reset both circuit breakers by flipping them OFF and ON 2-3 times and then see if the dryer will heat.

If the dryer is getting the proper voltage then it could have one 4 failures:
Heating element
High limit thermostat
Operating thermostat
thermal cut off


These components can be disconnected and tested for continuity with an Ohm meter.
Replace the component that tests open/no continuity.
NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before removing the rear panel.



Let me know if this helps., Thank you for your question. Have a great day.

Q:

how to hookup a new heat element? 11096582100 Kenmore Electric dryer

A:

Thank you for choosing searspartsdirect.com.

I'm sorry to hear that you are having a hard time replacing the heating element on your dryer. I understand how that can be a frustrating thing to have to deal with.

Here are step by step instructions for you to follow so you can get your dryer back up and running.

1. You will need to unplug your dryer for any and all electrical connections.

2. Using a flashlight, look into the space above the dryer's bottom front access panel. You are looking for two metal clips that are located 4 inches from each side of the panel.

3. Use a flathead screwdriver and apply pressure to the metal clips until they are released. Once the clips have been released you will be able to remove the bottom front access panel.

4. Once this panel has been removed, look for the heating element housing and the heat shield. These should be located on the right side of the dryer. Hint: The heating element housing looks like a rectangular metal box.

5. Remove the screw from the bottom of the heat shield to reveal the heating element.

6. Locate two red wires that lead away from the heating element and disconnect them.

7. There is a screw located behind the red wires, this screw holds the element in place. Once this screw is removed the element will come out.

8. Once you have put the new heating element in place and have replaced the screw that holds the element reconnect the two red wires that run to the heating element.

9. Put the heat shield back in front of the heating element housing and screw it back into place.

10. Line up the metal clips on the top and bottom of the dryer's front panel and apply pressure until the panel snaps back into place.

11. Finally, plug the dryer in to all electrical connections.

I hope this information helps you. If you need further assistance please let me know and I will be glad to help you.

Thank you for choosing searspartsdirect.com.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The first thing to try is to locate the two house circuit breakers dedicated for the dryer and reset both circuit breakers by flipping them OFF and ON 2-3 times and then see if the dryer will heat.

If it continues to run and not heat then the next step is to check and confirm the proper voltage supply at the back of the dryer where the power cord is attached. The voltage must measure 220 volts when checking across the two outer terminals. NOTE: I do not recommend checking voltage unless you have experience and feel safe and confident in doing so; otherwise I recommend calling a service technician.

If the dryer is getting the proper voltage then it could have one 4 failures. See image below.

It could have one of the following component failures:

  • Heating element (key#14)
  • High limit thermostat (key#34)
  • Operating thermostat (key#42)
  • Thermal cut off (key#1)
Each one of the above components is accessed from the rear of the dryer by removing the rear panel. These components can be disconnected and tested for continuity with an Ohm meter. Replace the component that tests open/no continuity. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before removing the rear panel. I added a YouTube video showing how to test the heating element for continuity and this also applies to testing the other components in the same way.

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 .

My Kenmore Dryer run but does not heat up. I have checked all of the component. Checked continuity across all of the thermostast and the heating element and also the thermal cut off. The only component that I have not been able to chech is the motor drive switch. does anyone know where this switch is located?. Is it on the motor itself or is on the inside of the motor. if that is the case how do I get at the motor.

A:

Fernando: The centrifugal switch is on the motor. Contacts 2M and 1M must close once the motor is running in order to complete L2 voltage to the heating element. Also, make sure the dryer is getting 220 volts or it will run but not heat.

Lboydia; In order to provide model specific information about your dryer I will need to have the model number of the dryer. The heating coil could be located behind the rear panel or behind the front panel.
