Question and Answers

Q:

My dryer does not heat up at all and @ the same time the timer seem to suddenly stop working. Set it for 60 minutes & don't count down.

A:

Hi Bernard,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

From what you have described this issue is most likely caused by a failed heating element. Here is a video that demonstrates testing a heating element in a dryer; Video . Always unplug or de-energize electrical equipment before removing covers or attempting service. Be careful and wear appropriate hand protection when working around sharp metal parts. The dryer in this video may not look exactly like yours but the procedure is basically the same.

Here is a video that demonstrates replacing a heater in a dryer like yours; Heater replacement .

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 .

Q:

Why is my Kenmore dryer model 11062722101 getting too hot and tripping the breaker?

A:

A short to ground in the heating element could cause it to heat constantly and trip the breaker. I recommend unplugging the dryer and checking the heating element first. You can access the heating element by removing the back panel of the dryer. Pull off the heating element (with the dryer still unplugged) and look for damage to the heating coils. Also, you can check the resistance across the leads of the element using a volt/ohm meter. You should measure between 7 and 12 ohms. If you don't measure the proper resistance (or if you find damage), then the element will need to be replaced. This may fix your problem.

If you find no apparent problems with the heating element, then I recommend reassembling the dryer and disconnecting the flexible vent behind the dryer. Try running a medium size load of laundry set to high heat. With the dryer venting directly into your laundry room, check the cycling temperature of the air coming out of the vent at the back of the dryer. The dryer should be cycling the heater off at around 150 degrees and back on about 10 degrees below the temperature that it cycles off. If the dryer is not cycling properly, you could have a bad thermostat (Key 42 in the image below).

If the dryer works properly while venting directly into the room, then it is likely that a clogged or restricted exhaust duct to the outside of your home is causing the over heating of the dryer. Clearing this exhaust duct would likely fix this problem.

The tripping of the breaker could be caused by a defective or weak breaker in your home electrical system. If you suspect a defective breaker, I recommend calling an electrician to diagnose and repair this type of problem.

If you need more help with this dryer problem, resubmit your question with additional details.
