Kenmore Series 60 Electric Dryer Overheating

A few months ago, I replaced the belt on my dryer...Since then, it seems to get too hot in the sensor mode and seems to only dry properly in the timed mode.

    I just installed new dryer venting and am getting very good unrestricted air flow...the vent tube is curved but not kinked...I am wondering if I may have reversed any leads that I reattached while putting the thing back together...

I have a Kenmore Series 70 Dryer and I changed the thermal fuse got hot for a few minutes the model #110.74722400


The cycling thermostat must also be replaced when replacing the thermal fuse. The cycling thermostat's failure to cycle off the heating element results in overheating of the dryer which consequently blows the thermal fuse open.

Replacing only the thermal fuse should the dryer stops running and fails to start will result in its premature blowing or even the thermal cut-out (cut-off) located on the heater duct. Like the cycling thermostat, the high-limit thermostat must also be replaced once the thermal cut-out blows open. Refer to the parts diagram in the link below and look for item numbers 31(thermal cut-off), 34(hi-limit thermostat), 39(thermal fuse), and 41(cycling thermostat.

Overheating/burnt rubber smell


classical sign of a bad motor. the motor has a thermal switch on it telling the unit to shut off when it gets hot. after it cools down, the switch will tell the motor to turn back on again. good luck, i'm pretty sure that's your problem. contact me for further help if needed. thanks :)

Dryer not hot


Tht means that the element is not heating on.

You need to call a technician to test the element, the thermic sensor, and the control assembly.

The most likely is a defective heating element, that must be replaced.

The drum of my Kenmore 80 series electric dryer is not turning


sounds like you need a new drum belt. start by taking the top off then the front panel will have screws inside for removing the front. then once the front is off you will see the motor and where the belt should be. if the belt is broken, replace it, if not just put it back on the motor and idler pulley.

Can't get replacement parts back on Kenmore 60 series dryer.


The belt has groves, right? Make sure the groves go over the motor pulley from the right. The idler pulley is spring loaded. Place the belt around the idling pulley with the smooth side of the belt on the pulley. This should work.
