Question about Kenmore 659 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

My Kenmore 80 series dryer is shutting down

My Kenmore series gas dryer is making a squealing noise and shuts off after a few minutes of running. It does heat up so I know that the pilot is lite. If there is anyone that has had the same problem please let me know what it was.

Thanks,
Dawn from Saginaw MI.

when you try to start it again do you hear a humming comeing from the motor? can you jump start it by turning the drum while holding the start button? If you say yes to these questions you have a bad motor.

Loud buzz when starting, then shutting down after 10 min.


Yes, this sounds like the motor cutting out on thermal lockout.

IT SOUNDS AS THOUGH THE MOTOR IS OVERHEATING AND SHUTTING ITSELF OFF. THAT IS ABOUT THE ONLY THING ON THE DRYER THAT WOULD SHUT IT OFF AND NOT ALLOW IT TO START AGAIN RIGHT AWAY, BUT LET IT START AFTER A WHILE. MAKE SURE THE MOTOR TURNS FREELY. IT SHOULD NOT DRAG OR HUMM WHEN TRYING TO START.
