SUBJECT: No heat, but all else works fine. I have purchased and installed replacement High Limit T-stat, Cycling T-stat, and Thermal Fuse (all from appliancepartspros.com). I have checked 220 outlet, 220 fuse bank, cord attachment, all hot with no apparent signs of damage. Timer seemingly has good contacts and function. Heating Element was removed and cleaned and inspected and does not appear broken or grounded. Heating Element seems to be getting power as do the violet leads on the cycling T-stat when using a simple VAC voltage tester. No power seems to be reaching the thermal fuse, but I am not sure what is normal. It also seems no measurable voltage is passing through the temperature control switch. What should my next step be?

Brandon for Model Number Kenmore 90 Series Dryer (electric)

ANSWER Hello Brandon. If the thermal fuse were bad, the dryer would not run. It sounds as if the element is bad, if there is 240 volts to it, but no heat. If this is the case, you will need to order and replace the heater in the unit.
