Q:

Dryer not heating well

A:

Dryers are one of the easiest appliances to diagnose and repair. I will provide you with some troubleshooting and repair tips. If you get to a point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this heating problem in your dryer, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services .

The first step in troubleshooting this type of problem is to check the operating temperature in the dryer. Ventilate the laundry room as much as possible. Fill the dryer with a medium load of damp garments. Pull the dryer forward and remove the flexible vent from the back panel. Position dryer so that you can measure the temperature of the exhaust air coming out of the back of the dryer. Start a cycle on high temperature with the dryer venting directly into the laundry room for this brief test. Measure the temperature of the exhaust air coming out of the middle of that vent at the back of the dryer. It should heat up to about 150 degree and then cycle between 140 and 150 degrees.

If the temperature never reaches that 150 degree point then you could have a problem with the heating element. You can unplug the dryer and access that element by removing the back panel. Here is a link for a repair video that shows how to access and replace that heating element Electric Dryer Heating Element Replacement . Be sure that you unplug the dryer before accessing internal components. You can check that element for apparent damage to the coils. If you see no visible damage, you can measure the resistance through that element using a volt/ohm meter. Here is a link for a brief video that shows how to test that element: Dryer Heating Element Testing . The element should measure between 7 and 14 ohms. If that element is bad, then it will need to be replaced. The part number for the element is 279838. Here is a Sears PartsDirect.com link where you can order that element: Heating Element for Kenmore Dryer 110.62612101 .

If the dryer is heating properly when venting directly into the laundry room, then you could have an undetected restriction in that exhaust duct system to the outside of your home. I recommend that you recheck that issue in this situation.

These initial tips may help you resolve this dryer problem. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details (including the cycling temperature in the dryer).

Hello Ralph. A voltage supply problem could prevent the dryer from heating. If you have not checked the house circuit breakers or fuses for the dryer electrical outlet, then I recommend that you examine those first. If you see no problems, I recommend that you carefully check the voltage at the outlet. The second image below shows the voltage that you should measure. NOTE: You should only check that live outlet voltage if you are completely confident in your technical ability to safely measure it. Wear electrical safety gloves and safety goggles when checking that live outlet voltage. If the outlet voltage is okay, then you could have a bad timer, a failed operating thermostat or a blown thermal cut-out fuse. The wiring diagram for the dryer model 110.62612101 mentioned in this thread is shown in the first image below. The heating circuit is traced in red and green. The red line traced the L1 leg of voltage and the green line traces the L2 leg. You may be able to use this information to determine the cause of your dryer heating failure. If you need more help, reply with additional details and the full model number of your dryer if it is different than the one in this thread.

Q:

Kenmore Dryer Doesn't Automatically Shut Off

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

I assume the dryer is producing heat. I say this because the timer motor must have a 220 volt power supply or the timer will not advance. If the dryer is heating, the dryer is getting the proper voltage.  If the timer is not advancing at all in the timed cycle, it likely has a faulty timer. To confirm if the timer is faulty will require measuring the voltage supply at the timer across terminals BK and TM. Place the timer in TIME DRY and then the dryer must be started when measuring the voltage supply across terminals BK and TM. If it measure 220 volts and the timer will not advance, the timer is faulty. I added an image below of the wiring diagram to reference the circuit to terminals BK and TM.

The timer is part # 8299779 which can be ordered from Searspartsdirect.com if you find it getting the 220 volts.

NOTE: I do not recommend making any voltage measurements 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.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.
