Question and Answers

Q:

kenmore 400 doesn't heat, and timer doesn't move, but dryer still tumbles , is it the fuse

A:

Based on your symptom and details the most likely failure is the lack of line 2 (L2) voltage supply to the dryer. This is likely due to one of the two dedicated circuit breakers being tripped. It could be timer failure but not likely. I added the wiring diagram in the image below. Your timer and heating element requires a 220-240 voltage supply in order to produce heat and for the timer to advance. Locate the two (2) house circuit breakers dedicated for the dryer and reset both circuit breakers by flipping them both OFF and back ON 2-3 times and then check the dryer for heat. If it heats then the timer will likely advanced too. If it does not heat and the timer does not advance then it could have a burnt line 2 (L2) voltage supply wire connection at the dryer terminal block where the power cord is attached to the dryer. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before checking for a burnt wire at the terminal block on the dryer.

Q:

Is there a way to test the timer for a Kenmore 400 electric dryer

A:

The first image below shows a wiring diagram and a drawing of the timer. The second image shows the path of voltage through the timer. The third image shows how to open the console on this type of dryer. I recommend that you unplug the dryer and open the console. With the timer set in a heated cycle, check the continuity between the red wire on Terminal A and the black wire on Terminal C of the timer using a volt/ohm meter. You should measure near zero ohms (continuity) through these connections. If you do, then the timer is not likely causing the intermittent lack of heat in the dryer. When the dryer is not heating in a heated cycle, you can unplug it and check this issue at the point in the heated cycle when the element is not working. NOTE: At the end of the cycle in the COOL DOWN portion of the cycle, you will not measure the zero ohms since the switch to the heater is opened to shut off the heat.

You can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect website if necessary.

If the timer is okay, reply with additional details regarding this intermittent heating failure. You could have a bad operating thermostat, a failing high limit thermostat or a problem with the L2 voltage that is causing this heating problem.

Be sure that you unplug the dryer before accessing internal components in the dryer.

A:

Those links that Barbara H. posted in the above response should help you with electrical requirements for the washer and the dryer. The washer will normally need a 15 amp breaker and the dryer will need a 30 amp breaker. If you need more help, let us know.
