Question about Kenmore Dryers

1 Answer

Kenmore Dryer won't work after changing belt.

We have a Kenmore electric dryer approx. 5 years old:
Model # 110 C66-492500
Serial # MS 4815035
Type # CWJR ele 2306024 cv54
The problem began when it would not tumble, hot air blew and the light inside worked and I was able to turn it manually. My husband checked the belt and found it was worn and it also fell off the pulley so he bought a new one. While he was putting the new one on he had dropped a part into the motors coils and saw a spark when he pulled it out. Yes he did forget to unplug the dryer prior to working on it!!! Nothing was noticibly damaged to the exterior of the coils however when everything was done he pushed the dryer button and now nothing works!! No Motor, no heat just the stupid light inside the dryer! I really hope that someone can give us a possible reason for this and hopefully it's something very simple and can be done without paying a repairman! I appreicate any input on this matter!
We also can't seem to find the dryers manual can you tell me where I can get one??
Thanks!
Trish

My kenmore elite dryer model 110 63032102 won't turn on


Check the door switch. Push it by hand and you should hear it click. If no click is heard, replace the door switch with this part.
If the switch is OK, then the only other problem will be with the thermal fuse located on the rear of the machine. Here is a link to that part.

10 year old kenmore model 110 gas dryer drum turns but will not dry clothes


I have a Kenmore Model 110.74612200 it came with the house and needs another service call-not heating- how old is this model? Wondering if it might be time to buy a new one. Dryer has seen a lot of use in the past 5 years from a household of six.

Wondering what year out dryer is from. The model is 76992100. The model series is 69921-79921 The serial no. is F83005027 The dryer is old, but how old? Thanks, Mary Lou Devaney, 174 Cambon Ave., St....


The model number you provided has a prefix of "110" accompanying the number. That indicates the manufacturer of this Kenmore dryer is Whirlpool. The manufacture date is determined by the SERIAL NUMBER. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r2880489-determining_age_whirlpool_appliance

The first two numbers in the serial number identify the WEEK it was manufactured. The second digit identifies, the YEAR. According to the information I provided, that would mean your dryer was manufactured in July of 1988. So your dryer is 21 years young.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: These were well built appliances. The same design is used in Whirlpool appliances to this day.

Model 110 86574120 how old?


its from 1985 first and third #s after the 110

Don't know if this is right model


Okay...took me a while to get a good cross reference on this one. Drop the last four characters of your model number and place a "110." in front of the remaining numbers. That way the number reads 110.86921100. The "110" identifies the manufacturer. Your dryer is made by Whirlpool. If you go to searspartsdirect.com and type in the model number I provided, there are a series of drawings on the next page showing an exploded view of the layout of your dyer. Does this look familiar to you? Under the "Cabinet" heading you will find the dryer belt listed as item number 56 (part number 341241). For a diagram of how the belt goes on, go to repairclinic.com and you will find a dryer belt diagram link listed under the "Repair Help" section. Locate the Whirlpool diagrams and you will use drawing "K". I apologize if this sounds like absolute madness. If you get confused, please post back and let me know. I hope this answers your questions.
