Dryer Not Heating Up

Dryer Not Heating Up

I have a Kenmore electric dryer (HE4 actually) that won’t heat up. Below is what I’ve done to troubleshoot:

ANSWERS:

"You hit almost everything

Cause 1

Main Control Board

The main control board might be defective. However, this is rarely the case. Before replacing the main control board, check all of the more commonly defective parts. If you have determined that all of the other components are working properly, replace the main control board. (The control board cannot be easily tested, but you can try to inspect it for signs of burning or a shorted-out component.)

Cause 2

Timer

If the dryer doesn’t heat, the timer might be defective. However, this is very rarely the case. Before replacing the timer, check all the more commonly defective parts. If you determine that all of the other components are working properly, test the timer by using a multimeter and consulting the wiring diagram. If the timer is defective, replace it."
