Question about Kenmore 64932 Electric Dryer

Open Question

Low setting to hot

I have a Kenmore 64932 model electric dryer. The tempiture are 138-140 for low, 140 for med., 150 for med. high, 160 for high, after running for 4 minutes. My question is this a normal operating tempiture for the low setting? My cloths seem to be getting to hot, and end up shrinking. I took off the back panel, the vent was clear and the sensors seem to be working properly and cycling proply. Or is the problem the temp. selection switch?

Fixable and possibly a warranty claim. The timer is bad. You will need to get behind the control panel and remove the timer and replace the timer. First I would call whoever it is that yall bought the dryer through and see how long your warranty is. Most of the warranties are only 1 year. But if you bought a extended warranty then you are covered. The part can be found at repairclinic.com

Sounds like a faulty operating thermostat. Only way is to test on a electric griddle that you can set the temperature to 150 deg and measure with a ohm meter.

SOURCE: Kenmore 600 dryer tumbling & heating, but not drying

Several reasonings. Step One make certain that you have 220 volts coming to your outlet. It takes 110 for the motor, and it takes 110 for the heating elements. If you have a volt meter that would be the best way to do that. Take the red and stick it in to the long part, and the black lead to the ground. Fuse houses was bad about this. Step Two it could be the elements are kicking off too soon. That is usually a sign of almost blown element. Step Three the heat sensor for the element prematurely kicking off the element.

SOURCE: The dryer will heat up and run 10 min then shut off

You will need to replace the timer control.

I have a Kenmore Electric Dryer #76974150. It only works right the higher heat setting. Will not heat at all on the low heat settings? Any ideas?


If the dryer is running then the thermal fuse is okay.

The temperature is controlled by three parts. There is the operating thermostat which is on the blower housing and is rated at 150 degrees. This is high heat.

The operating thermostat sits in a thermostat heater which is controlled by the temperature switch. The temperature switch controls how much voltage passes it to the thermostat heater. This is how we achieve lower temperatures. There is about a 15/20 degree difference between high heat and low heat.

The restricted vent may have caused the appearance of the dryer running hot.

I would suggest you check the temperature coming out of the exhaust. It can be checked with the vent hose pulled off. Any thermostat with a range between 120 degrees and 160 can be used. With the vent removed check the temperature of the air in the exhaust. At high temperature it should cycle between 135 degrees to approximately 155 degrees. This is high heat.

If you turn the temperature switch to a lower setting such as delicate you should see a lower temperature in the exhaust. It may only be 15 degrees lower but it should show a lower temperature.

I hope this information helps to resolve this problem.

Dryer operates but will not heat up


Do this first
Clean the entire exhaust venting tubes
The lint build up will cause the moister sensor to shut down the heat until its is entirely cleaned out. If cleaned and still no heat the sensor is bad

My Kenmore dryer seems to have a mind of it's own on heating. Sometimes it heats very hot, sometimes little heat at all. It does not seem to matter what setting it is on, low, med, or high. Nor does it...


when was the last time you cleaned it out,try running it with the vent line removed,you need to clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,vac out the inside of dryer where the motor is,if you have a shop vac put it on blow and blow off the motor and clean out the vent line and the outside vent,if the vent line is long i use a leaf blower to clean out the vent line,also is it gas or electric?next time send model number?if it's gas you could have bad gas coils,when they heat up they fail,clothes are warm at end of cycle.run the dryer for 15 to 30 minutes and check to see if the flame is still lighting if not bad gas coils.hope this helps
