    Default Kenmore Elite Oasis Electric Dryer - No Heat

    Model Number: 110.6703
    Brand: Sears Kenmore
    Age: 1-5 years

    We have a Kenmore Elite Oasis Dryer, 110.6703, that will run the cycle with no heat. Could this be the thermostat? I'm not really that great at repairing things, but with money tight and it being the holiday's I need to give this a go, so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    You can check the element, thermostats and thermal fuse for continuity but you'll need a meter that can read Ohms and volts, both AC and DC. The thermostats and thermal cut off will be located on the blower housing and element housing.

    Rick is correct,

    Also Have you verified with a volt meter you have 220-240 volts? I've seen many times when 1 side of the dual breaker has tripped or a bad breaker would just cause dryers to run on 120 volts that the motor needs but not 220-240 volts to make it heat.

    220-240 volt 3 prong power plug test for a dryer

    220-240 volt 4 prong power plug test for a dryer

    The Kenmore Oasis is identical to the Whirlpool Cabrio.

    Here is the Cabrio dryer repair manual that may help too:

    Actually, you have a Whirlpool Duet dryer. Some tests are the same. Check the element and thermal fuse and thermostats for continuity.

    Yes, Rick is correct for your model too.

    If the fuse/breakers are fine, Its likely going to be either the heater itself or the thermal cut-off thats mounted on the side of the heater housing.

    Check those for continuity with your ohm meter with the wires removed from those 2 first, make sure you unplug your dryer first.

    You would need to take off the lower front access panel under your door, then take off the duct assembly#45, by removing the two #28 screws, and you may also have a screw at the very bottom of the duct assembly with a bracket attached to it, remove that one also.



    Here's the thermal cut-off#47 for your model you can order:
    Manufacturer part#279973 is RepairClinic item#897710
    279973

    Watch this video, the same applies to testing your thermal cut-off, Unplug or turn the breaker off to the dryer before opening the dryer up and ohm testing:
