The fuse probably blew due to a blockage of some sort. Check your ventpipe. It may be full of lint. The fuse is a small white part held onto the blower housing with 1 screw. It usually can be found under the dust cover on the rear of the dryer.Kenmore 70 Series Dryer - 84a81ce.jpg It has 2 small wires hooked to it and it is wired in series with the door switch. When the lint gets built up and dryer over heats and fuse blows. The result is just as if you opened the door.1d45fbe.jpg

Have a kenmore series 70 dryer. Won't shut off


Yes it deffinetley sounds like you may have a timer issue, if your timer stops and the dryer is running, or if the timer keeps going around and around this will be the problem, however there are thermostats inside the dryer and if you have it set on a HEAT and not a TIMED setting the thermostats won't advance the timer because they havent been set.Hope this helps

Thanks.

I have a kenmore 70 series electric dryer. The motor won't start, I can hear the timer ticking.


There is a circuit board that is in the control panel. It is mounted into a plastic carrier that is skrewed into the panel. You could pull it straight out and check it with a multimeter to see if there is continuty, check the two blue resisters and if no continuty, replace!

Kenmore 70 series dryer control/timer knob doesn't turn when running


THE TIMER HAS A SMALL DRIVE MOTOR THAT TURNS THE TIMER AT DIFFERENT SPEEDS FOR DIFFERENT CYCLES AND VARIES FROM BRAND TO BRAND BUT EITHER WAY YOU MUST REPLACE THE TIMER , EXPENSIVE FIX IF THE DRYER IS WORTH IT THAT SHOULD TAKE CARE OF THE PROBLEM
