Question about Kenmore 63012 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

My Kenmore Model# 110 66652500

The dryer won't shut off by itself & it also won't heat up. I put a new timer in but it still won't work.

    My dryer was working fine 2 days ago and I didn't even use it other than to fluff clothes for work. I started a load yesterday before leaving for work came home to it STILL running! No Heat though. What's up?

    My dryer will not shutoff, on any cycle option, including the timed cycle, despite replacing the timer and ensuring that the ductowrk and exhaust is clean and unobstructed. The dial gets to a position just short of 'off' and then stops.

See the following hints from Repairclinic:

If your dryer seems to run forever, it could be because of a clogged vent or internal ductwork. Your dryer may have an automatic cycle that turns off the dryer when the clothes are dry. It does this with a special thermostat or moisture-sensing system.

Normally, this is what happens during an automatic cycle:

  • The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a pre-set temperature--say 135 degrees.


  • When the dryer reaches the pre-set temperature, the thermostat tells the timer to begin advancing. (If there's a moisture sensor, the timer advances only if the moisture content of the clothing is low enough.)


  • The timer advances until the interior cools, then the thermostat tells the timer to stop advancing, and tells the dryer to start heating again.


This cycle continues until the clothes are dry. But…if the vent is clogged, the dryer may never reach the proper operating temperature, so it doesn't send the signal to the timer and the dryer continues to run indefinitely, even if the clothes are completely dry. To fix the problem, clean the vent and/or internal ductwork.


If it does not heat up, the element can also be faulty.

If you need to call a technician there is a phone number listed at the end of the user manual.

My dryer shuts off before its time and not heating


Model?

On a model I just repaired here's what I found:

Model: 110.69422801
Kenmore Electric

No heat. although sometimes it had heat for a short time. Suspected that the heating element was faulty (i.e. cracked heating coil). Nope. Checked hi and lower thermostats and both were good. Took apart timer controller. Found that the contacts inside were worn/burnt. Item is designed to fail. Slightly bent one of the contacts to make better contact and it is working. Ordered new timer/controller ($45 including shipping from "One Appliance" on line). Easy to replace. ALWAYS disconnect the power when servicing!!!

Dryer runs with no heat and never shuts off on its own


what are you running it on?auto or more or less,if so the timer will not advance to off without heat,usually the heat comes on,the dryer heats up until it reaches temp.the heater shuts off and then the timer will start to advance to off,when the heat comes back on the timer will stop advancing and the heat will come on,it will do this until the clothes are dry,so no heat the timer will not move,now if you put it on time dry the timer should count down no matter what just like a clock.if you open the door and look around the opening where you put the clothes in you'll see a tag with the model number send this and i can help you.

Kenmore dryer 110.86864100 - Where is the moisture sensor?


Ain't no moisture sensor. This is is not an electronic sensing machine. It uses another method to determine dryness. An orange wire connects to the base of the heating element. The timer motor is driven by power from it in auto dry. The timer motor is VERY slow. Slower than most dryer timer motors.As the clothes get dryer the heat is not needed so the element is turned off by the control thermostat which is mounted next to the skinny white fuse on the blower housing. This allows for the turtle like motor on the timer to advance. Once the clothes get to the point of dryness the heater stays off way longer and the timer motor advances on over to the cool down and carry on over to the end of cycle. So the clothes won't always be dry due to factors like lint buildup in the blower housing, venting to outside and so forth. having said that my mom bought a brand new Kenmore dryer and I set it on 55 minutes timed drying. At the end of that them clothes is still damp. I then set it to auto dry high heat and that usually gets em dry. I think the main probo with this dryer is the thermostat ain't set as high as older models to keep the heat at a moderate temp so that the limits won't blow on models in apts and such. Just a theory.

Dryer timer won't shut off at end of cycle. Dryer runs, but no heat. It is a Whirlpool model number LGR4634JQ2.


Since you say that the dryer runs but have no heat, plus the timer won't shut off the odds are the timer is bad. The timer would tell the burner when to be on and when to shut down.

The dryer is not heating up and the dial stops at the cool down so the dryer will not shut off by it self. Its a kenmore 70 series dryer.


you need to send the model number,open the door and look around the opening where you put the clothes into the dryer and you'll see the tag with the model number.it will start with 110. or 417.because you have no heat that's why the timer won't advance,when the heat shuts down then the timer advances when the heat comes back on the timer stops moving or advancing,no heat the timer won't move.send the model number
