Question and Answers

Q:

i have kenmore dryer 110-96582100 . it does not produce heat but it does run

A:

This dryer is different than the one described in the link for a previous answer that Alina F. provided above. Here are some troubleshooting tips for your specific model of dryer:

  • Check the house circuit breakers or fuses for the dryer. The dryer will run if only one of the 120 volt legs of 240 volt power is supplied to the dryer. If the second leg of 120 volt power is missing, then the dryer will not heat.

  • If the breakers/house fuses are okay, I recommend that you carefully check the voltage at the dryer outlet using a volt/ohm meter. I provided a diagram in the first image that will help you with this task. NOTE: You should only check this live outlet voltage if you are completely confident in your technical ability to safely measure it . Skip this step if necessary.

  • The wiring diagram for your dryer is shown in the second image below. The L1 leg of power for the heating circuit is traced in red. The L2 leg is traced in green. You could have a failed heating element or a bad component in the circuit that is preventing the dryer from heating. I recommend that you unplug the dryer and check the heating element first. Remove the back panel to access this component. You can check the heating element by removing the wires and measuring the resistance across the leads of the element. You should measure between 7.8 and 11.8 ohms of resistance through the heating element. If it is "open" (measures Ol -- open load or infinite resistance) then it will need to be replaced.

  • If the heating element is okay, you can check the thermal cut-off fuse, the high limit thermostat and the operating thermostat in a similar manner (with the dryer unplugged ). All of those components should measure near zero ohms of resistance. If a component is "open" then it will need to be replaced. If the thermal cut-off fuse is blown, then the high limit thermostat and the operating thermostat will probably need to be replaced at the same time since they did not shut off the heater and prevent that fuse from blowing.

  • If all of the above components are okay, then you could have a bad timer, a failed motor centrifugal switch or a wiring failure in the circuit.

These tips may help. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

You can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect website.

Q:

Dryer does not produce heat / need repair manual

A:

The link for a manual that Alina provided seems to be for a newer model according to your full model number. I am not showing that the manual for dryer model 110.96582100 is available online. It is also not available as a part from the Sears PartsDirect website since this is an older model of dryer (from around 1994). Here is a link for the manual that pertains to a more similar model: Owner's Manual . NOTE: It may take a minute or two for this manual to download. That manual does not cover your exact model but you may be able to use for general information.

I provided extensive technical information and troubleshooting in the answer that I provided to your previous question about this dryer. Here is a link for that answer: i have kenmore dryer 110-96582100 . it does not produce heat but it does run

This technical information may help you determine the cause of this heating failure. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.
