Customer Question

I have Kenmore dryer model 110.96520100 which runs but will not heat. There is continuity through the heating element, high heat limit thermostat, cycling thermostat, thermo cut-off and the termal fuse is ok and I have tested the start switch and have continuity when it is depressed. There are no loose wires and I am out of ideas. The timer seems to be working but I have eliminated just about everything else. Thanks

Thanks for the information. Is there a method of testing this switch or do you just replace it?

Why did a $68 charge hit my debit account when it shows I authorized $15.00.
