The link for a previous answer that Dezeray S. provides suggests that you check the house circuit breaker for the dryer outlet. This electric dryer will run if only one of the 120 volt legs of 240 volt power is provided to the dryer. If the second leg of 120 volt power is missing, the dryer will not heat. If the circuit breaker is okay, I recommend that you check the dryer outlet for proper voltage using a volt/ohm meter. The image below shows a diagram for checking this voltage. NOTE: You should only check this live outlet voltage if you are completely confident in your technical ability to safely measure it.
If you don't have a volt/ohm meter, you can normally buy one for less than $20 at your local Sears or hardware store.
If the outlet is okay, I recommend that you
unplug the dryer
and check the heating element. The second image below shows how to remove the back panel and the heating element in this type of dryer. If the element is broken then it will need to be replaced. You may not see visible damage to the element. The best way to test it is to measure the resistance through the element with a volt/ohm meter. It should measure between 7.8 and 11.8 ohms of resistance. If the element is "open" (measures Ol -- open load or infinite resistance) then it will need to be replaced.
You can order a new element from the
website. The part number for the element is 279838.
If the heating element is okay, you could have a bad high limit thermostat, an open operating thermostat, a blown thermal cut-off fuse, a bad timer contact, a failed motor centrifugal switch contact or a wiring failure in the circuit. If you need help checking these components, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.
If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website:
