Question and Answers

Q:

Kenmore Elite model number 11082826102 dryer runs, but does no heat.

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

If the dryer is not stopping and displaying "E1" or "E2" the thermistor is likely Okay. The "E1" fault code would mean an open thermistor and "E2" would mean a shorted thermistor.

There is likely some other component failure rather than the thermistor. I added a couple of images below showing the components in the heater circuit and how to troubleshoot.

The heating element requires a 220-240 voltage supply in order to heat. Be sure the dryer has the proper voltage supply. The voltage should be checked and verified at the terminal block where the power cord attaches at the back of the dryer. The voltage must measure between 220-240 volts when measuring across the two (2) outside terminals. NOTE: I do not recommend checking voltages 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 recommend testing the thermal cut off, high limit and heating element for continuity using an OHM meter after confirming the dryer has the proper voltage supply. Disconnect the power cord from the power source before removing the lower toe panel. Disconnect the wires from the thermal cut off, high limit and heating element before testing them for continuity with an OHM meter.

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 .

A:

Here is a link for a wiring schematic for that dryer: Kenmore Dryer Wiring Diagram. Here is an image of the heating element with the wires connected: Kenmore Dryer Wiring.

That information should help you connect the wires to your heating element properly.

Q:

Dryer runs but no heat

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The first step in diagnosing the failure is to verify the voltage supply to the dryer. The voltage should be measured across the two outside terminals at the back of the dryer where the power cord attaches. It must measure 220-240 volts in order for the heating element to operate.

NOTE: I do not recommend measuring voltage 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.

If 220-240 volts is measured, then the next step is to disconnect the power cord from the power source. Remove the front lower access panel. See image below for removal instructions. Disconnect and test the "thermal cut off" for continuity with an Ohm meter. See image below for the location of the "thermal cut off".

I added a YouTube video showing how to test a component or thermal cut off for continuity . I also added an image below with the heater circuit traced in red and green. I circled the components in the heating circuit which can fail and prevent the heating element from operating. The heating element must have both; line one and line two voltages in order to heat (220 volts).
