Question about Kenmore 62602 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Kenmore Dryer 80 series will not turn on.

I have a model number 66822692 Kenmore dryer that has just stopped turning on. There is power to the dryer, as I see the light inside on and when I turn the dryer dial it sounds like it usually does. However, the START button, when pushed each time does not start the dryer. I unplugged and replugged the dryer, and this did nothing.

Any help would be appreciated, my clothes are piling up. :)

    When I press and hold the start button I hear a slight whirring sound coming from the dryer.

    Where to you find the switch?

    Similar problem, though with a twist. Sometimes the dryer will start and run for about 15 seconds then shut off. I can hold start button in and it will run for 20 or 30 seconds then shut down. Won't start again until it sits for a while. When it first runs there is a squeal that seems to come from motor area but then goes away moments before dryer quits.

How do I stop my kenmore dryer, model 970-c87172, from beeping? Drying, cool down, wrinkle rid and clean lint filter lights flash 3 times. Start light doesn't flash at all. It does this even

Hi Brenda

First off It seems that you model is not correct. Kenmore model numbers start with 3 number followed by a . and then some more numbers. Most Kenmore laundry numbers start with 110.xxxxxxxx. The number you have looks like a serial number which is no help.

Kenmore by Sears,
This is really a simple project
I believe your belt broke and Kenmore put a kill switch to protect your motor and heating element.
there are two screws when you remove your lint screen.
Remove those screws.(philips)
With a straight screwdriver, gently pry up the top of dryer.
When loose, open all the way to the back and rest on the wall,
On each inside,behind the door, at the top, is a 1/4" bolt. Use Socket to Remove both. Pull up and out on the front and put it to the side.
Remove the drum.
Now you can clean the inside with a vacumn. See the kill switch in front of motor.
The model is inside the door on the left
since you have it apart check the drum rollers for flat spots as well as freedom in movement DO NOT GREASE
Put it back together

I have a kenmore 80 series dryer that heats up and will not tumble. The model # is 66822692. Can you please help?

Open the back panel to access the belt. There is a motor to make the drum tumble by the belt. If the belt is not intact then motor turns but not the drum. If the belt is in good place then motor is not working. Check out the continuity of the motor, if there is then there is a problem with the circuitry. If there is not continuity from the motor terminals then the motor is burnt.

I have a used Kenmore Series 80 dryer & the drum stopped turning

Good day,
Not hard to do but check the 2 rear wheels that support the drum and change at the same time if needed. Inspect the belt tensioner as well.
Here's a good tutorial on the belt change.

Kenmore dryer model 64602 wont turn on???

Check the thermal fuse on the rear of the dryer.
Remove the rear panel. The thermal fuse is 1 and 1/2 inches long by 1/2 inch wide. White in color and located just left of the dryer exhaust vent. 2 purple wires. Jump the wires together and start the dryer. If it runs, replace the thermal fuse.
