Question about Dryers

1 Answer

Kenmore dryer I have a Kenmore dryer... have no idea how old it is. The model # id 110.96282100. I noticed that clothes were taking longer and longer to dry, until one day, there was no heat at all and the timer dial no longer turned.... so, the dryer will run forever until I manually shut it off. It seems that one problem is related to the other... what's wrong and is it even worth fixing? -Dian

After dryer shuts off, timer continues to run. Kenmore model #110.86181810, part # I think is 692032 and sears says it is no longer in stock. Anyone still have one?


I assume you're talking about the buzzer. Many high end dryers do that until you remove the clothes. heated clothes can set wrinkles if kept in the same position for a long time. it's a feature, not a problem, unless it keeps buzzing after you remove the dried clothes!

Dryer heats up, but does not dry clothes. Vent is clean

As you can see, your heating element has 5 heating coils. If one or more of these coils have opened you dryer will still work and heat but not at well as it would if all coils worked together. You can check each coil with an ohm meter to verify if one or more is open.

Kenmore 11066912690 dryer stops working


if you are using the sensor drying cyle this could cause the unit to stop. it will detect the most dry clothing first usually light clothes that dry faster.if not and you are useing timed dry the most likely cause is a faluty timer,or a thermostat sesnor is going bad and turnoing off the dryer before the clothes are dry

Dryer no longer has heat to dry clothes


The element gets brittle and breaks. The element is in the rear of the dryer under the dustcover.

Dryer starts drying and thinks clothes are dry, but they aren't


Check the timer, and the sensor. Sounds like it is having a problem with the timer or sensor no noticing that the clothes are still wet. Please rate if satisfied. Thank you

Kenmore dryer only heats on delicate


I am not familiar with this particular dryer but most of the Kenmore family use different thermostats for different temperature. They are usually located in the rear and are clustered on the blower housing. Take the two wires off one thermostat at a time and test. It should be closed when cold if not replace it (Usually around $15 each) You probably have a very dangerous clogged exhaust. This will cause thermostats to fail. and can cause a fire. CLEAN It out and dont use flexible plastic duct pipe. The other cause of thermostat failure is if the washer doesn't spin properly and the clothes are too wet when dried. A properly operating dryer will not take much longer than 45 minutes max to dry a load.
