Question about Kenmore 5.7 cu. ft. Coin Operated Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Kenmore 'large capacity' dryer won't start

The dryer worked perfectly the last time I used it (Christmas Eve) and now won't start at all. I've checked the circuit breaker, unplugged and replugged it and still nothing. The particulars for this unit are: Mod - C1108560290, Ser - ICEA951172, Type - DR-6

I thought about checking the door switch next but am unsure about where to locate it. Thus far, I have removed the back panel from the unit and am just looking for the next step!

If anyone can help, I'd really appreciate it!

It appears your controller board/timer 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.

My dryer won't work! The light works and the lint


Hi

I believe that everything else is fine rather it is the thermal fuse that is located inside the rear panel to the exhaust duct that is bad and should be replaced. If you want you can test this fuse for continuity and if it is bad then it should be replaced, as it cannot be reset. If the fuse is fine then it can be due to the control board that is bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

The unit just stopped heating and drying the clothes.The burner on my LP Kenmore dryer won't light, otherwise everything else works just fine. I've have taken everything apart and cleaned out all...


Generally, with a gas dryer, there is an ignition device that heats to a specific temperature and this causes the gas to ignite. When this electric ignition fails to work, the gas will not ignite and there will be no heat. I had this happen and had to call a professional. It was a simple matter of installing a new ignition device and it worked perfectly for years. I hope this helps! If it is a new dryer, check to see if this part might be covered under warranty

My extra large capacity Whirlpool dryer does not dry in one cycle. Even if I only put a small load it takes at least 3 cycles to dry


There maybe an air flow issue. With the dryer on check the air flow from the exterior location of your home. There should be a good flow of warm/hot air coming out. If not the inside of the dryer may be full of lint.
