You can unplug the dryer and access the heating element from the front of this dryer. The procedure for replacing the heating element is shown in the first image below.

If you replace the element and the dryer still does not heat, you can check the following issues:

  • Check the house circuit breaker (or house fuses) for your dryer. The dryer motor will run is only the L1 leg of 240 volt power is supplied to the dryer. If the L2 leg of power is missing, the dryer will not heat. Here is a Manage My Life.com video that provides an illustration of this troubleshooting step: Video: Dryer Not Heating? .

  • If the house breakers or fuses are okay, you may need to carefully check the voltage at the dryer outlet using a volt/ohm meter. The diagram in the 3rd image shows the voltage that you should measure at the dryer outlet. NOTE: You should only check this live outlet voltage if you are completely confident in your technical ability to safely measure it using a volt/ohm meter. Skip this step if necessary.

  • The wiring diagram for your dryer is shown in the second image below. You could have a failed high limit thermostat or a blown thermal cut-off fuse that would prevent the dryer from heating. These components are on the side of the heater box that houses the element. You can unplug the dryer and check these components for continuity as shown in this Repair Clinic.com video: Thermal Fuse Testing . The high limit thermostat is a combined component. Check the continuity through the spades where the red/white wires are attached on the outside of the component. If one of these components are "open" then the dryer will not heat. You can order replacement parts from the Sears PartsDirect website. Be sure that you unplug the dryer before accessing internal components. NOTE: If the thermal cut-off fuse was blown then you will need to replace the high limit thermostat at the same time since the high limit thermostat should have opened and prevented the thermal cut-off fuse from blowing.

These tips should help you fix this dryer heating problem. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

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 .
