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

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.
