My dryer will not heat. Its a Kenmore PN 110.66922500. I plan to check the thermal fuse, but does anyone know offhand whether the fuse will also trip the motor? The motor does run, just no heat.

If the fuse would trip the motor as well, i suspect it might be the heating element.

Thank you

Thank you very much. I think the element is OK. I remove the terminals and it buzzes out. I have not removed the whole assembly yet with the cutoff. I tried to remove it from the front, but think there is a screw holding heating element/housing from the back as well.

Thank you again. I will check the cutoff

So I got the heating assembly out. There are two elements and the back one does not buzz out. I think that is the thermal fuse... The one toward the front I think is the high limit thermostat.

?Two elements?

One of these was open?

That will stop the heat from working.

Sorry poor wording. not elements like the coil but the two items you show in the pic above. The one on the right, non red one is open so that must be bad.

I have the new one installed but am having a hard time getting that heating element housing installed and engaged with the back of the dryer as was done in the video. There is a tab on the top and cant see even with a flashlight how this is supposed to go back in. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks

I think I got it engaged.... i tab has to be tilted in and then rotated....Not sure exactly, I tried several times the other day and did not work but finally got it back in
