Question about Dryers

Kenmore Electric Dryer wont start or runs only occassionally

Model 68942891.
Sometimes runs and dries like nothing is wrong.
Sometimes shuts off within a few minutes.
Someitmes won't start.
Never know how it is going to act, but when it refuses to start...it really refuses.
Drum light always works. When it does start, it heats properly on all settings.
Read lots of posts, but almost no solutions. Just complaints that Sears does not care bout this problem with their driers.

    Yes, Sir.

    Fixed the problem.

    Found a Whirlpool even heat control board online.

    Solved the problem with a 10 minute installation.



    Thanks very much.

My kenmore elite HE4 electric dryer is making a screeching/high pitched noise. It would dry the clothes, but I can't stand the noise. Before the noise started the dryer would occassionally not start if...


Hi- The bearing(s) might be worn or the drum wheels sticking but if it is not starting sometimes you most likely have a motor issue. You'll need someone to come out and take a look at it.

Maytag Performa Electric Dryer Won't Start


check the blower wheel, sounds to me like it is loose on the blower motor, common on these dryers. One sure sign would be a warped filter and a rusted top. The blower aint putting out enough and the dryer is over heating .

Electric Dryer


When you first start out with a cold dryer the dryer runs fine, then when you start a second load if wont?

It sounds like you motor is overheating, Your dryer probably needs to be cleaned, taken apart and all of the lint build up around motor removed. also so clean the venting and weather hood outside.
