Question:

My dryer is not heating up, I checked the heater element and it is getting 240V. I checked the high limit thermos, the thermal cut off, and the heater element for continuity and there is between all three. So is it definitive that I need a new heating element?

Mitchel
Answer:

Hi Mitchel, if you tested your heater element and there is 240 V and it still does not heat you can be confident that it does need replacing. Please let us know if you have any further questions!

Question:

Ordered a new heating element from you and it was Part# 3387747, my old one says 5400 W and this one says 5200 W, why the drop in wattage? Will it affect my machine???

Chantel
Answer:

Hi Chantel, you are right the heating element has had a drop in wattage. This was a decision made and implemented by the manufacturer. Although we do not know their reasons why, we can safely say that this heating element WP3387747 is meant for your model.

Question:

I keep having to replace my heating element … this is the third time. This time it melted the wires that are attached by the insulator. Wth am I doing wrong that it keeps going, plz help!

Joy
Answer:

Hi Joy, sorry to hear that. The most common reason for elements failing is due to the dryer having poor ventilation. Your first step should be to check the vent of the dryer for clogging and make sure there is good airflow. I hope this helps!

Question:

My Kenmore dryer heats at the high temp, even on fluff or delicate

john for model number 11069822800
Answer:

Hi John, Thank you for your inquiry. If your dryer is too hot you will need to check the thermal fuse, the internal bias thermostat, the thermal cut-off kit, the high thermostat, the electrode sensor and the heating element. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Question:

Get to hot and will not shut off

Gene for model number 11068842700
Answer:

Hi Gene, Thank you for the question. We recommend replacing the Thermal Fuse. It is a safety mechanism that stops the flow of electricity to the heating element when a dryer overheats. When this fuse is faulty, your dryer will not start or it will not heat properly. This is a one-time fuse, meaning it cannot be re-set. Hope this helps!

Dryer stopped heating

First, we unclogged the blocked duct (which, is apparently what burned up the heating unit in the first place!), then, we took off the front of the dryer panel; then we loosened up the heating unit's case and took out the existing heating unit. It was apparent why it wasn't working. You'll have to see yours for yourself. Then, we installed the new unit, put the heat shield back on, closed up the dryer and turned it on. No heat... oops because we forgot to put the electricity to the unit... so we took the panel back off, then plugged the wires up to the heating unit, as we should have the first time, closed up the panel, and voila! The dryer was working again, and for a major fraction of the cost of replacing the thing! 45 dollars instead of 800. Well worth the time! And the 14 year old did the repair. Explains the first plug in mishap, but also taught him a good skill!!!

No heat in dryer

I opened up the bottom of the cabinet and found some evidence of burned lint in the heater box. I ohmed out the thermostats and they were good. Then I ohmed out the heater coil and found that it was an open circuit.

Dryer would run but had no heat

After unplugging the dryer and pulling it out.I removed the front cover below the door by putting a screw driver between the clips and bottom of the door and pulled on the cover and it came loss.
I then marked the wires on the heating element removed two screws to the bracket on the end and removed the heating element and tube all in one piece
After removing the screw that holds the heating element to the tube i pulled it out and found the element had broken.
i got on PartSelect put the model# in and there was my parts. I Ordered both the element and the thermal cut off kit because it seem to cheap insurance against buning up another element.
I placed my order had it sent next day delivery and it arrived right at the time they said it would.
Clean the underside of the dryer up. Installed everything back in reverse order.
Pluged it back in and turned it on and it worked.
One word of caution! Check your vent tube before reinstalling the dryer mine was stopped up and i believe thats what burned up the element.
