electric dryer no heat at times


Hi

At times I have an electric dryer that will heat up and work just fine. Then at other times it will stop heating up but still be spinning. It randomly heats up and then doesn't. I checked all thermal fuses, cycling fuse, etc and everything checks out ok. I checked for continuity on heating element and it was good. I inspected the heating element for cracks or a broken element and found it to be ok. There is not anything blocking the exhaust duct. And I cleaned all the lint from the back of dryer. Any ideas of what the problem is? Thanks for your help. Dave

Its a Kenmore dryer
Model # 100.60022010

Check the receptacle for a loose connection. Turn off the breaker first.

Re: electric dryer no heat at times


did you check the limit switches ? sometimes they'll be intermittent until they go. "they are fine" means no evidence of heat like blue or black terminals ?
