dryer suddenly had no heat

I studied the instruction on the partselect.com site, followed the directions to discover the problem, ordered the part from them, installed it as in instructed in their video, and it has worked perfectly for the past 5 days after doing a mountain of laundry. I took the opportunity to clean my dryer interior from all lint and dust as well as the vent. I suspect lint is what caused the problem after I washed some new flannel sheets which clogged my vent cover outside. I cannot say enough good things about the partselect videos. I'm ready to tackle a few other appliances. One note about the Kenmore Elite Dryer 110 model: Do not take the back off. I removed the screws which caused the steel plate to drop a little at the back of the dryer. Then I could not put the screws back in. To fix this, I removed the screws from the control panel and pushed it forward to reach just inside the top back of the dryer...pulled up the steel plate and got the screws to line up and put it all back together. The only other tricky part was getting the heater unit back in to the slot at the back of the dryer. I finally used a little brute force to push it in far enough, then turned it a quarter clockwise to the correct position. My husband was impressed that I tackled this project by myself. Hunting season was on in MN. THANK YOU PartSelect.

My wife did the repair. Went on your website and watch the video on how to replace the switch and she was able to do it herself. I didn't mind at all. Saved $75.00 service charge.

dryer would not get hot on any setting

First I replaced the heating element. That did not fix the problem, so I used an ohm meter to test the thermostat and fuse (thermal cut-off). One of those was bad, so I ordered the thermostat/fuse conbo and put those in. The hardest part was getting the wires to the right places. I labeled them with masking tape and a sharpie, but maybe they are sized so they only fit one place. I didn't check. The actual work of changing out the parts was super easy. I recommend testing those three parts-heating element, thermostat, fuse-with an ohm meter before buying something you don't need. I now have a spare heating element and thermostat. I should be good for another ten years!

No heat, thermal cut off was cooked big time.

Dryer wasn't drying well, then lost all heat

  • Customer: Charles from Columbia SC
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers, Socket set

First I removed the front kick panel to observe the drum and blower to see that both were running. I watched the element inside the heat can as well, and saw that it wasn't receiving a current (no heat, wasn't glowing). First thing I did was test the element itself by removing it from the heat can, and with a multimeter set to its lowest ohm setting, touched both terminal ends to check for continuity. The MM read 0 so it was fine. I then removed and tested the thermal fuse and the relay on the blower in the same fashion, removing them and checking them for continuity. They were fine also. I then moved on to the thermal limiter and relay on the heat can, and that's where I found a broken current. After installing both parts on the heat can, I observed the element receiving a current and the problem was fixed. I've done several loads since then and it is drying better than ever. Problem solved, for now.

The dryer was taking longer to dry.

My dryer is one of the energy efficient models (HE). The video for the installations was knowledgeable, but getting into the front of mine only required removing to screws from the bottom left & right corner (not using a putty knife to pop the springs). the plate on the front drops after that. Also when taking out the tube with the dryer element in it took a lot more twisting inside the frame to get it loose. Still turn it after the wire connections have been pulled off a little bit better than 1/4 of a turn. Also the heating element was in there really, really tight. It required tapping on the plate with a screw driver and a rubber hammer to take it out & put in (not that tough). After putting it in a 1/4 of a turn so that the tab was inside the blower tube. everything after that was pretty easy. The video showed this all being done in a clean dryer. It has been my experience that before all is running & closed back up that a vacuum or shop vac needs to go thru there to clean things up & prevent a future fire.

Belt pulley frequently squealed loudly

  • Customer: WILLIAM from HOUSTON TX
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours

My way of replacing the pulley was much faster than the parts select video that showed how to replace the belt tension-er pulley. They took off the door, the entire front AND the drum to get to the pulley. I ACCESSED THE PULLEY BY REMOVING THE 4 INCH EXHAUST PIPE, (ONE SCREW) WHICH GAVE MORE THAN ENOUGH OPENING TO REPLACE THE NEARBY PULLEY! I suggest you remake that video
