Technician on his way to my home to service dryer. There is a $10.00 charge to check out if I do not get dryer repaired. How much should I spend to have dryer fixed or opt to replace. The dryer is turning and blowing...no heat.
Kenmore model 86983110
thanks, Single female

Hi,

We usually advise the customer to replace the unit if the repair gets up to or over 50% of the cost to replace it with a new one.

**The dryer is turning and blowing...no heat.**

A copy:

Q - My electric dryer runs but will not heat, what could stop my dryer from heating ?

A - Things that could stop a electric dryer from heating:

- house fuse or breaker ( needs 2! )... - heating element ... - burnt wire ... - thermostats ... thermal fuse ( not all models )... - motor heat switch ... - timer ... - selector switch ... - burnt power cord/plug ...

I got 110.86983110 to work for me.
