Question about Kenmore Dryers
The dryer turns on, tumbles, etc, but is not drying clothes. Yesterday my husband cleaned all the lint out of the filters, hose, and vent to the outside. To him there didn't seem to be too much of a lint build up to warrant overheating. We know we need to get into the dryer to get to the thermal fuse, heating element and whatever other parts to test them, but we can't figure out how. I have looked all over trying to find our model number without much success. Where is the thermal fuse? And how and where do we open it to get to it? Thank you!!!
Might be your heating element that is burnt check the model of your dryer then look upnon youtube to replace the heating element simple and cheaper can buy the specific element with the serial part number on the original part :)

Testimonial: "Thank you. It did end up being the heating element. We found the way to the thermal fuse and heating element via a youtube video. For anyone reading, there is a "drawer" looking cover at the front bottom of the dryer. Use a putty knife or flathead screwdriver between the drawer and front cover and pop the tabs. Take off the drawer part. Your thermal fuse is located there, as well as the heating element. Thanks again for your adivce!"

SOURCE: Bosch Dryer doesn't dry clothes
With the dryer not connect to the external venting turn the dryer on and see if there is air coming out ot the vent from the dryer. Is this flow of air strong or weak?
If weak then there could be a problem inside the dryer some where. Perhaps the fan is not operating properly. Just my thoughts.
You say you have check the beginning and end of the duck vent pipe. How about seeing if it venting duct is clear from one end to the other.

Hi, Here are the obvious parts to check: Heater, High limit, Thermal fuse or thermostats...these are all generally located in the back but some models you access them from front. the most common cause is either heater or thermal fuse, I will include a picture of the thermal fuse. If you test these parts and find they all work you may be looking at a centrifiacal switch problem.
Here is a picture of the thermal fuse check this part first:
Please feel free to contact again if you have any other problems.
Hope this helps.

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.
check out this electric no heat tip...
