Question about Kenmore Elite HE4 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Kenmore Elite Dryer, Model: 110 60972990... will not restart.

Our Kenmore Elite Dryer is nine years old and was close to finishing a load of clothes when it suddenly became very very hot to the touch and the final cycle stopped. The dyer now will not restart. The electrical panel breaker did not pop and the dryer vent and lint screen area are clear and unrestricted. The service information points to a "Thermal Cut-Off" as a potential problem. Where is this located and can a DIY person handle this repair? Could this problem be something other than the "Thermal Cut-Off". Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks... Perplexed Jake

Yes, a DIY person can replace a thermal cutoff. just open the rear of the unit and look for parts with big red wires connected to it. it is round, one small and one big. both have two terminal clips.
if you can find the schematics inside the switch panel, then it would help you further. the thermal cutoff consist of two pc. replace both even one of them has continuity.

When my washer is on the spin cycle it goes out of balence shuts down no matter wht size load or how i arange the load never completes the spin cycle this is a kenmore elite oasis 5 years old. #2 problem...


as for the washer there maybe a broken spring or where the spring attaches that balances the drum. look for this firest. for the dryer is it spinning around at the right speed if it is then the belt is ok. is it hot inside the dryer after running it when you open the door. if ti is check the dryer vent hose and exterior door at end of hose to see it they are plugged up . if the hose is plugged up the heat and moisture can't excape and the clothes will take a long time to dry.

Dl flashes and won't restart


Hi. Without model # I can't be certain but, (UNPLUG machine) if you remove the panel under the door and reach up along the right side of the tub, you can feel a little lever with a lood on it to unlock the door so that you can atleast get your close out. It sounds like the door switch has gone bad.
I hope this helps. Please let me know.

Dryer cuts off before clothes are dry.


Might be the thermal protector in the motor that is shutting down the dryer, if motor overheats this is what will happen. Make sure there is no lint build up around the motor, if not the motor is bad. does the dryer start right away after shutting off or do you have to wait? If you have to wait the motor is bad.

Wrinkled closes


make sure your washer is spinning the water completley out of the clothes. winkles are caused by moister and if there is a lot of moister in the dryer than it will winkle.
