Question and Answers

Q:

Why will my Kenmore Series 70 run but not get hot?

A:

I recommend checking the breakers (or fuses) on the electrical panel for your house first. The dryer will run if only one of the 120 volt legs of 240 volt power is supplied to the unit. If the second leg of 120 volt power is missing, the dryer will not heat.

If the breakers are okay, I recommend checking the voltage at the dryer outlet using the diagram in the second image below. NOTE: You should only check this live voltage if you are completely confident in your technical ability to safely take this measurement.

The wiring diagram for your dryer is shown in the first image below. If the outlet is okay, then you could have a failed timer contact, a bad heating element, an open high limit thermostat, a faulty operating thermostat, a blown thermal cut-off fuse, a bad centrifugal switch on the motor or a wiring failure between components. I recommend unplugging the dryer and removing the back panel. Remove at least one wire from the leads of the heating element (Key 14 in the third image) and measure the resistance across the leads of the element with a volt/ohm meter. You should measure between 7 and 13 ohms. If you are way out of this range, then the heating element will need to be replaced. If the heating element is okay, you can test the high limit thermostat (Key 34), the thermal cut-off fuse (Key 1) and the operating thermostat (Key 42) in the same manner. These 3 components should measure near zero ohms of resistance (continuity). If any of these measure infinite resistance (open), then it will need to be replaced.

These tips should help you determine the cause of your heating failure. If all of the components indicated above are okay, then you could still have a wiring failure, a bad timer or a defective motor centrifugal switch.

Q:

Why is my dryer not heating and not shutting off?

A:

The timer will not advance to shut off the dryer if it is not heating.

I recommend checking the breakers for the dryer. It will run if only one of the 120 volt legs of 240 volt power is supplied to the dryer. If the second leg is missing, the dryer will not heat. I also recommend checking the voltage at the dryer outlet. This procedure and other troubleshooting tips are provided in this link of a previous answer: Where is the thermostat located on my Kenmore dryer model number 11067432600?

In addition to the tips in the previous answer referenced above, you can also check the resistance of the heater element (with the dryer unplugged). The heater element should measure between 7 and 13 ohms with the wires unplugged.
