Question about Kenmore 64852 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

It starts and runs for about 20 - 30 secondds then stops

The problem that I am having with my 2 year old kenmore is that it would run for about 20 -30 seconds then shut off and I cant turn it back on for about 5 minutes when I hear a click. Then it does it again. I have check for lint to see if that might be the problem but it is lint free. I got another dryer. It is another brand all together and it is doing the same thing that the kenmore is doing.

Pwolf, looks like the problem you?re having is not with the dryer. The vent line is probably clogged up, which caused the dryer to overheat. The hi limit thermostat opens up which shuts off the dryer. After it cools down and closes, you are able to restart the dryer. To make sure this is a vent problem, you can disconnect the vent hose behind the dryer and run it for one load with it disconnected. If it runs fine, then the vent line needs cleaning. Usually it needs special equipment and is very hard to do yourself. It would cost you around $90 to get a professional out to do it for you. If it doesn?t run with the hose disconnected, then you have to provide the complete model number, which is located on the door frame. Gendos....post back.

Kenmore 80 series keeps shutting off. new motor and lint line cle


take off the vent line from the back of the dryer,if it runs fine your vent line is blocked or the outside vent where the flapper opens might have a cage on it to keep animals out of the line,it keeps the animals out but it's a lint trap.if you have a long run use a leaf blower and blow out the vent line,if that's ok check the t-stats on the heater box,

10 year old top loader, stops midway thru cycle


turns out it was the opening and closing the lid while trying to get it to run again. I placed a screwdriver in the hole on the lid sensor deal and it kept running so I order a new stinger or what ever you call the deal on the lid that goes in to the hole. I was going to order a timer until I read your emails on your web site..saved me a lot of money. THANKS

My Kenmore Elite Oasis He Washer model #110.2706 will not fill with water. I have checked for blockage in the water lines and they are clean and clear. The washer is only two years old. It will hum like it...


Your fill valve needs replacing. Not too expensive to change. This is all based on the fact that you have checked both feeds to the washer hook up and that the shut off lever is fully open.

Water puddle from refrigerator towards back


If you have a water line running in for an ice maker check to ensure all fitings are tight. Secondly check to see if cooling coils are completely clear and free of debri (this will allow the unit to properly breath and hopefully eliminate your problem)

My Kenmore 80 series dryer (64852) develops a buzzing sound while drying. Functionally it works just fine. However, after about 20min (this varies) of run time the dryer will usually begin to buzz. The buzzing seems to come and go for a short while and then becomes more constant. Then about 10min (give or take) before the dryer shuts off, the buzzing usually stops. It doesn't seem to matter what setting the dryer in on. (e.g. "Timed Dry", "Automatic Moisture Sensing") Often times when the dryer begins buzzing I can turn the dial back a bit and the buzzing usually stop for a short time. But it seems to pick up with the buzzing again before the dial reaches the same point where it began the first time. Also, because the buzzing remains fairly constant, and I get the impression that the thermostat is cycling things off and on like it should, I don't really think that this is an issue related to the heating element. Although I've been known to be wrong before. As far as I can tell it does have something to do with heat though, because the buzzing only seems to start after the machine has had time to run and warm up for a while and then stops during the last 10min when I assume the machine would be cooling down. Also, I keep the "End of Cycle Signal" in the OFF position all the time. When I have turned it on in the past it sounds distinctly different from the noise it make while drying. One more thing. The buzzing doesn't sound like vibrating parts to me. Thanks for any help you can give.
