Kenmore Elec Dryer 110.62712101 No heat/timer not moving

4 posts in this topic

I took the vent off the back to see if the vent to the roof was restricting airflow (had warm air but took long time to dry). I set on High with a load in, watched the heating element heat up, ran good for about 20 minutes, dryer felt pretty dang hot, then went cold. No more heat & the cycle timer did not move from that point on.

Took heating element, HL thermo, internal bias thermo, fuse, & the other thermo attached to the element to the shop & all tested good. Checked my breakers, good but turned on/off just to be sure. Checked lint trap...clean.

Put all parts back on, but still no heat & the cycle timer is not counting down.

Any Ideas??

thanks

And you ran this entire subsequent test with the vent removed?

No more heat & the cycle timer did not move from that point on.

Was this test run with the dryer in timed dry mode or auto dry?
