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.

    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.

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.

Go to www.repairclinic.com and enter your model number and it will show you all your parts, but I suggest you change your thermostats and basically have the dryer cleaned out of possible lint build up on the interior
