Question about Kenmore 63942 Dryer

1 Answer

I have a Kenmore Heavy Duty Plus electric dryer. It was running fine, and now won't come on when you punch the button to start it. You can hear the timer in the dial working, so I know it is getting power. Also the circuit is not tripped. I have taken the back off, and it looks like there are several fuses. Can you give me some direction?

Take the 2 wires on the white fuse on the lower left and put them together and try the dryer if it works replace the fuse and clean your vent

I have an electric Kenmore Heavy Duty Plus dryer that runs fine just blowing cold air.


It sounds like your dryer's heating element has gone bad. They are somewhat easy to replace if you are somewhat handy. You may have problems finding one but most can be found at an appliance or hardware store. Good luck.

Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

Kenmore heavy duty plus


Sure. The likely problem is a broken belt. Do you hear the motor? If not, it could be the motor. Pull the back off the unit...with the power off and have a look.
