Tip & How-To about Washing Machines
I have heard of several cases where the Kenmore dryer completely shuts off by itself after a few minutes.
Here is a couple of things to check :
If the door switch is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. It's a possibility that the heat would render the contacts defective. You can put a jumper wire across the switch and see if it helps.
On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that turns off the dryer if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is around an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing.
