My HE3 dryer stopped heating today, just blows room temp air.

Cant seem to find the model # on the outside.

By reading the other posts I suppose 110.84832200 is correct.

Is there any to tell if its the heating elemant or the thermal fuse w/o opening it up?

Hi,

**Cant seem to find the model # on the outside**

Often around the door opening.

**Is there any to tell if its the heating elemant or the thermal fuse w/o opening it up?**

Nope! You can check for proper power at the dryer power cord or plug from the back but to test for any thermostats or heating element with a volt meter = opening it up.

A dryer manual may help....

You can find tips for locating the model and serial number identification tag on your appliances at the following link:

** By reading the other posts I suppose 110.84832200 is correct. **

If you didn't get it off *your* dryer, it is unlikely to be correct.

** Is there any to tell if its the heating element or the thermal fuse w/o opening it up? **

About the only thing that can be checked without opening the dryer are the fuses/breakers in the house fuse panel. You can read about the other possible causes of a 'no heat' condition in an electric dryer at the following link. Each would have to be actually tested for one at until the cause in your case is found.

- Can anybody tell me the most likely scenarios for lack of heat in an electric dryer?

I finally found the part #

110.82822200

When I poped the top, one of the wires leaving the machine control electronics had been rubbing against the drum. The white wire had almost rubbed through. It left a black ring on the drum.

I checked the ohm resistance on all the compponents, when I opened the machine control electronics there was a loose black wire. the only open plug was on the heater relay, labeled 'N.O.'. the COM or red wire was connected.

After patching the white wore and connecting the black wore to the heater relay I restarted the dryer. Still no heat.

I rechecked the ohms anf found the heater element open.

after I pulled it I found a broken loop.

I'll replace the heater element tomorrow, but, does the black wire belong on the heater relay?

That is a model number (which is what were requested) unfortunately, S ears doesn't have a listing for such a number. Maybe you transposed a couple of digits when posting it here??

** there was a loose black wire. the only open plug was on the heater relay, labeled 'N.O.'. the COM or red wire was connected... does the black wire belong on the heater relay? **

I would think there should be a wire on each of the relay's terminals but I'm afraid I don't know what colored wire goes where on your model. You'd have to check the machine's wiring diagram which will often be inside the control panel. On some models it might be inside the cabinet behind the lower front access panel or pasted to the inside side panel.

** I rechecked the ohms and found the heater element open. after I pulled it I found a broken loop. **

Some of the elements they use in dryers these days don't seem to last long. Do check your dryer venting though, *all the way from the dryer to the outdoors*. Plugged or improper venting (see the link below) could cause the element to get hotter than normal, leading to premature failure.

Let us know how you make out.

Thanks for this thread. My HE3 just stopped blowing heat this weekend, and with three kids I can't put up with that kind of thing for too long. :-)
