It appears your belt and POSSIBLY pulley/tensioner has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Whirlpool model 110.88752792 dryer runs but does not heat


Concerning the Kenmore 11088752792 model where the dryer spins but does not heat. I had that problem a few years ago with the same model.

I replaced the fuse (part No. 3399849 about $10.00) and the thermostat (part no 3398128 about $25.00). Dryer worked fine the first try.

FYI. Today, I'm searching for what makes the dryer squeak when I came across your issue (though 6 months since you posted, but I figure there are other Kenmore stack-able owners out there searching for a fix). I haven't taken the dryer apart yet but have ordered the dryer belt, rollers, pulley (a package deal with RepairClinic) and the felt bearing/seal. May as well do a full replacement of the likely components that are causing the squeaks and not spend any more time going through trial and error repairs.

If you haven't already, the dogs on your agitator are probably due for replacement as well. RepairClinic has an agitator package deal with replacement dogs and seals.

My dryer squeaks terribly


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

Squeaking sound from the dryer comes when the belt is either broken or worn out, before replacing the belt also check the idler pulley because if that is bad then it also needs replacement with the belt. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Dryer is starting to squeak, does the dryer have a belt


yes they do...
Remove the panel below the dryer door to access the screws to remove the front of the dryer. Here is a breakdown of what you are looking for. The noise is probably from the rear bearing -http://www.repairclinic.com/referral.asp?R=154&N=1851

and front drum glide - http://www.repairclinic.com/referral.asp?R=154&N=343

Makes squeaking noise after running for about 10 minutes


there are 2 drum rollers at the back of the dryer. shut off power, pull drum and you will see 2 rubber wheels. there is a little plastis triangle that keeps the roller in place. try spinning the rollers . they probably will not spin too freely. remove triangles ,inspect inside of roller the stainless steel bearing may have gunk on it try to clean off . also check shaft roller rides likewise remove any debri use a little rubbing alcohol to remove gunk. also check the idler roller that routes the belt for the same things. good luck

Dryer squeaks and is staining clothes with rust. is it the bearing needs replacing?


yeah it sounds like the bearings are shot. dryers run at high temps. that takes a toll on the parts. check the belt also it might need replacing too. my dryer has guide pins that the barrel rolls on. one of those broke. its not fun going to the laundrymat.

Agitator very noisy while washing


There is a small roller that tightens the drive belt for the drum inside this unit. If it is loose it makes a squeaking noise. Tightening this may solve your problem. You will have to take off the back panel to do this repair
