Question about Dryers

1 Answer

Kenmore dryer will not come on at all

During the last dry load, clothes were not yet dry but dryer had cut off. The outside of the dryer itself was piping hot! We cleaned the filter, thinking that was the problem and that it had cut off as a safety feature. Circuit breaker did not cut off yet dryer would not start.

    Thanks, anyway. I kept poking around on the Internet until I found a site for Kenmore dryer troubleshooting. There is a thermal fuse that can burn out as a safety feature when the temp gets too high. We have a parts place here in our city. My hubby went out, bought the new fuse and replaced it. That was it! Dryer now working. Thanks again for your time.

My kenmore dryer 110.77432600 wont dry clothes


seems like 2 issues here. bad timer? and heating issue? ELECTRIC Dryer no heat or little heat:

Check your venting and lint basket. Check blower for lint build up and blower wheel obstruction., test by trying to turn the wheel manually by hand (should be easy) May have to remove cabinet or front/back plate to get to it)

Next check the heating element itself with a meter for continuity OHMS CLOSED CIRCUIT. If not its defective.

Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage. 220 because if u only get half or 110 volts you will be able to run the machine which uses only 110 to run motor but not the heater which uses a full 220,

Check the thermal cut off, the cycling and the hi limit thermostats.
For continuity or OHMS. If no ohms or resistance they need replacement.

Lastly check your moister sensor. ( located inside the dryer door usually) Especially if machine seems to shut down early and clothes are still wet.
Test with a meter at room temperature and it should show continuity.

I have a kenmore elite oasis that we put a new element in 3 months ago because it wouldn't heat up. Recently it has gotten to where it won't dry again, but there is heat. It seems that the air flow is also...


well ther could be a problem with one of the thermal fuses going bad and cutting off the heat to early during the cycle.

when the dryer is running go to the outsid eof the house.the air flow should be strong,if it s weak there is an obstruction somewhere and need sto be cleaned.

also make sure the clothes being put in are not to wet from the washer.
i hope this helps with your problem.

Dryer is hot, clothes arnt getting dry. blower? less that 1 year old Kenmore


Remove the vent hose from the dryer and dry a load of clothes . If they dry , then dryer is pushed too far back , kinking vent hose , or the vent from the dryer to the outside is blocked somewhere . A dryer either heats or doesn't heat (except for maytag associated dryers ) in which the blower wheel could be stripped out . But Kenmores don't have blower problems .

Roper dryer stopped working during cycle REX6634RQO


replace your t-fuse again but also chekc to see if the vent going outside is restricted. if hte vent is smashed or clogged the heat has nowhere to go. i would say that is your issue. clean your vent before you change he t-fuse.

Kenmore dryer


this promblem is about always a vent promblem or not cleaning the drier filter if your using the plastic vent check if its mashed behind the drier you must have 4inch of vent all the way throuch if its mashed or folded over its cut down to 2inches if it hangs under your house then comes up to the outside vent housing it can fill with water if the outside hood door isnt oping that will do it too its in your vent some where what i tell cust to do is run 4inch pvc from out side hood up through floor then run short metel vent to pvg attach with clamp to confirm vent restriction take vent loose for one load and see if it dries in right amount of time

Loud/Soft signal


all i can figure is it is a strange method by kenmore to alert the user to throw in an antistatic cloth that gives softer clothes (clothes softener sheets)
