Most common reason the dryer tub won't tumble is due to either a broken belt or pulley. We have two guide on our website to show how to replace both items. I have inlcudes the links below.

Q:

the dryer will not heat up 41793702201 Kenmore Sears/laundry center

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

There could be one of many possible component failures preventing the dryer from heating.

 

  • Timer
  • Operating thermostat
  • High limit thermostat
  • Heating element
  • Motor centrifugal switch
  • Burnt wire connection
  • Lack of 220 volts 

 

 The first thing to try is resetting both house circuit breakers dedicated for the Laundry Center. Locate both circuit breakers and reset both breakers by flipping them both off and on 2-3 times and then see if the dryer will heat. If it does not heat, the voltage supply should be measured and confirmed of 220-240 volts. The voltage should be measured across the two outside terminals at the terminal block at the back of the dryer where the power cord is attached. NOTE: I do not recommend measuring the voltage supply unless you have experience and feel safe and confident in doing so; otherwise I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your dryer.

If the voltage supply measures 220-240 volts, the operating thermostat, high limit and the heating element will need to be disconnected and then tested for continuity with an Ohm meter. If one of the three does not measure continuity, that would be the faulty component.

To access the heating element and high limit will require taking the top of the dryer, the front dryer panel and the drum. This is not an easy procedure and I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your dryer. I added two images below. One is the wiring diagram and the other is the procedure for accessing the heating element. If you attempt to take the dryer apart, disconnect the laundry center from the power source before servicing. 

 If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services.

Q:

dryer will not heat 41793702201 Kenmore Sears/laundry center

A:

Thanks for the information about your dryer model 417.93702201; sorry you are having a problem, I will be glad to assist you. Based on your description of the dryer not heating we must first establish if there is no heat at all or is there some heat but the clothes don’t dry?  If there is heat on the clothes when the cycle is finished the most common cause id poor venting. Check the vent hose from the dryer to the house vent then from the house to outside, this vent system must be clean and allow very good air flow.  _Always disconnect power supply before servicing the appliance and when testing live voltage be sure to wear proper safety equipment (gloves and eye protection) also be aware of sharp metals on product_ If there is no heat at all first check the breaker for one side of the 240 volt power supply being tripped. The dryer can run with only 120 volts but requires 240 volts to heat. If breaker is okay then check the terminal block for a connection issues (terminal block is where the power cord attaches to the product) look for burnt or broken wires. Should these test areas be okay you will then need to test the heat circuit, heater and thermostats.  All this testing will require the use of a high quality volt/ohm meter and basic electrical knowledge.  (wiring diagram located in console area)I hope this helps you, if you need more help reply with additional details and I will be happy to respond.  Here is a link to Sears Parts DirectIf you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services. Ron H.
