20 Most Recent Kenmore 72062 Gas Dryer Questions & Answers


The thermal element that gets red hot and lights the pilot (assuming you have pilot flame) is cracked or broken. It is possible to light with a match but a nuisance.

Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.



if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....



If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

You need to check your power cord. Here is a video to walk you thru it.

Look for a blown duct fuse. Make corrections to the air flow and replace the fuse. A kenmore dryer has fuses that look like this: themobilian_18.jpgthemobilian_19.jpgthemobilian_20.jpgthemobilian_21.jpg

First thing I would do is check the thermal fuse to see if its blown. Its located behind the back wall of the dryer so you'll have to pull it out and take the back off, It will be located on the lower left side if your facing it and be white, long and then and held in with one screw. Unplug the wires and use a volt meter to check continuity on the fuse. If you dont have a meter, just unplug the two wires, connect them together and plug the machine back in a turn it on and see if it starts heating, be careful doing this. If you still have no heat plug the wires back onto the thermal fuse and check your ignitor located in the front bottom right hand side if your facing the front. A majority of the time its the thermal fuse, a really cheap part.

Hello Friend, Your problem is very simple to fix. You're dryer needs a thermal fuse and or gas valve coils, and maybe an igniter all three are very simple and affordable to replace. To replace the thermal fuse just remove back cover of dryer and look down where the air blows out. Now, just to the left where all the wires are you will see a white plastic part with two wires plugged into it. This part is called a thermal fuse. Just remove these wires and replace the thermal fuse. Now, if this don't solve the problem you will need a gas valve coil kit. To replace coils just remove front of dryer body and look below drum you will see the gas valve. The valve coils are located on top of valve (two little round black cylinders). It's simple, just remove the two screws from the little metal bracket that holds them down, unplug the wires from them and just lift them straight up off of the valve. Take notice that one has 3 wires and one has 2 wires. Just replace with new coils and plug wires back in and re-fasten metal bracket. Your dryer will run like new, if it doesn't then you will need to check the igniter. The igniter is attached to the end of the burner assymbly by one screw and a simple two wire plug. Inspect for breakage, and replace if needed. Happy to help, Tim.

The E1 displayed indicates the thermistor is open and needs to be replaced.

The connections can be loose but the most likely cause of an E1 error is a bad thermistor.

The dryer will not operate if the exhaust temperature drops below 18 degrees F. or exceeds 250 degrees F.

If you're comfortable and confident in your do-it-yourself skills and have access to a volt/ohm meter you can check and replace this part yourself.

The thermistor is available from the following: www.searspartsdirect.com

Enter your model # in the appropriate box to get a full parts break-down and diagrams.

To access the thermistor see the image below.

Remember to unplug the dryer from power first.

The thermistor will have a black and red/white wire on it.

You can check continuity across it with the meter and if the circuit is open then the thermistor needs to be replaced.



When the thermistor circuit is open (>50K ohms), the error code E1 flashes in the display.

When the thermistor circuit is shorted (

Normal thermistor resistance values:
60 degrees F. - 15.3K ohms.
70 degrees F. - 11.9K ohms.
80 degrees F. - 9.2K ohms.

The thermistor -may- check ok when cool and freak out when warm!
