    Default [FIXED] Kenmore Dryer 110.96573200

    Model Number: 110.96573200
    Brand: Sears Kenmore

    Well, I repair (with your awsome help) my washer then my dryer quits with the heat. Last week I noted a bunch of lint in the exit vent outside. But already, the internal temp of the dryer seemed weak at best. Today, no heat at all. 110.96573200 is the model number. These machines just need to last 6 more months. So what can I do to fix this? Is it worth it?

    Thanks!

    Mike

    Hi Mike,

    For the heating problem, you would need to pull your dryer out from the wall, then take off your back access panel and ohm the thermal cut-off#1 and the heater assembly#4 for continuity

    Make sure your dryer is unplugged first before testing! AND take the wires off both parts first before doing the ohm test for continuity.

    Radio Shack sells cheap volt/ohm meters if you don't have one.

    Here's the thermal cut-off for your model in case you need to order it:
    Manufacturer's Number: 279769



    Here's the heating element for your model in case you need to order it:
    Manufacturer's Part#4391960

    So, if I get a tone from the meter, the part(s) are shorted and thus bad?

    OK, for what it is worth, the items #1 and #3 beeped on the continuity test. The heater element had no tone.

    The element is burned out. I got it out. I am going to order both parts as a precaution. OK with you?
