Question and Answers


my dryer stopped heating. there is lint but not enough to stop air flow. Is there a fuse to change? 110 86566800


Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears
I am sorry and do understand your frustration when there is trouble with the dryer.
Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Kenmore Dryer model number 110.86566800.

I have below the items you need to check.   There is a thermal fuse but you need to take a meter and check all the thermostats and the heating element itself.

First thing for safety and concerns to keep dryer running well is to check the lint screen and vent of air flow going out of the house.   If clogged up it could cause heating problems on any dryer.
To prevent a Blocked Vent Hood, once a year: 
1.  Clean any lint blockage from the exhaust vent hood.
2.  Make sure the vent hood flappers move freely.
3.  Check for screen/grate openings that allow bird or rodent nests.
4.  Replace exhaust vent hood if damaged.
5.  Check for good air flow while running the dryer.
Note: Poor airflow or decreased airflow indicates further vent system cleaning is needed.

When it comes to Electric dryers here are all the options to check on when not heating.
All can be checked with an Ohm meter for its continuity open or closed.
You can see all these on the link below when clicked on.
Heating element which is key number 14
Heater thermostat key number 34
ON the back of the blower is thermal fuse key number 57
Also on the back of the blower internal thermostat key number 6

Also on the back of the blower thermostat key number 41
Make sure you always keep  your lint screen areas clean.

Thank you for your help. I didn't have a volt meter to check things. However, I noticed the heating element had a break in it. I checked a few places and SEARS Parts (local) gave me the best price and I replaced the heating element and cleaned all the lint out and everything is working fine. I went on the Internet and found a video showing how to replace the heating element myself. Thanks again for your help.
