Question about Kenmore 62622 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

No heat,,timer not advancing

My dryer is actually a Kenmore 65662 electric. There was no choice for this dryer,,,maybe due to age, so I just chose any one in order to get on here. Either way,,,the dryer has been working great and now all of a sudden, the timer will not advance and there is no heat. The motor works and the drum turns, but that's it. Can you lead me in the right direction to maybe get this resolved??? Thank you!

Re: No heat,,timer not advancing

Check with a multi-meter for power on THE heating element's tags (115/220V). If it does get power, you should replace the heating element. In case of no power- you should replace the thermostat. Good luck!

My Kenmore HE4 electric dryer runs for 2 minutes and stops

follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
The timer could be the problem. To check this, turn the timer to a timed cycle say 30 minutes or so then time it. If in 30 minutes the timer hasn't moved and the dryer is still on, the timer is faulty replac it. If in 30 minutes the dryer is off, the heating element is your problem

Heating Element
This is the most likely cause for some dryers timer not advancing. Some dryers have two heating elements and if one goes out the timer will not advance if you use it on an automatic cycle but you will still feel heat inside the tub. Replace it

Problem with Dryer Timer or heating element

The heat cycle must be working for the timer to advance in the Auto Dry setting.
Your heating element and or high limit thermostat is bad.
We need a complete model number to be more specific.

Kenmore Electric Dryer Model 110.6972110 timer motor NG


maybe call a generic appiance store other than sears, try maytag store. the knob pulls staight off and the timer nut is below. then take off the back cover off the control panel, sometimes those screws are on the front corners, sometimes hidden. take a picture of the timer wiring and tape and label all the wires before you remove it. unplug it first!!

Extremely low drum heat but setting is on HIGH.

Electric (Kenmore - 60931) dryer takes forever (several cycles) lately to dry clothes set on high heat (actual heat in tub feels low though). There are no obstructions in the venting and the 240 volt connection is fine. The timer rotates the dial (timer motor working). Help!!!

check the thermal fuse on the blower housing, remove the back panel and you will see a white fuse with blue wires connected to it it is to the left of the vent tube of the dryer if it shows no contunity then the fuse is bad and needs to be replaced

No heat, timer not advancing

If the timer advances in timed cycle but not automatic, you have a bad heater thermostat.
