Kenmore dryer doesn't cool down or stop
« on: October 28, 2014, 11:34:30 AM »
Recently my Kenmore dryer (model 110.63102101) stopped heating up so we replaced the thermal fuse which didn't help and then replaced the broken heating element. It now heats up but when on time dry it just keeps tumbling and doesn't cool down. When I open the dryer it is still very hot and gets stuck at the end of the drying cycle and just keeps going. Also when I put it on the Auto dry cycle it stays on more dry and never moves through the rest of the cycle. I checked the venting on the outside of the house and it's clear. I just cleaned out the entire back of the dryer when we replaced the other parts and it's not clogged either.
I'm thinking a cool down timer or something of the sort??? Any ideas?

That control thermostat is next to the fuse on the filter housing. It shuts down the element all during the drying cycle. Sounds to me like ya have a shorted element if it stays on all the time.

could the element be shorted because we hooked up the wires wrong when we replaced it? or is the whole part bad because we got a bad part?

And why wouldn't the dryer be stopping? Does the timer only stop the machine if it's cooled down?

If you wired in the element or the thermostate wrong it would just keep running. Pull out the wiring diagram and go over your connections.
