Question about Kenmore 72062 Gas Dryer

1 Answer

I need help

Hello. I am wondering if you could volunteer your expertise. I have a kenmore elite 72064 and i recently moved it a few inches and it is now producing cold air. It may work on and off for a minute or two if i fiddle with it and then it gets cold again. I am also getting a rattling noise from either the bottom left of the dryer or the vent. I checked the vent as well as the gas line and everything seems to be ok. Can you please help?

Re: I need help

Let me ask you a couple of questions. When you say you fiddle with it, what excatly are you doing to make it run again? Have you checked your vent line to be sure it wasnt crushed or some lint came loose and clogged it up when you moved it. When you moved it, did it accidentally drop or got bumped real hard. And not to sound bad, but the gas is still turned on. Have had people move them and hit the turn off behind the dryer. Let me know what other info you may have and maybe we can figure it out. Jim

Replacing dryer drum Kenmore Elite Electric Dryer

Usually from the front. Lift top and remove front. I can't image it would be worth replacing the drum. What is wrong with the drum? or do you mean the belt to drive the drum.

Kenmore agitates doenst spin

You will have to look at the inside of the washer when in spin cycle to see what is going on. Is the spinner motor not engaging the drum? Is the spinner working at all? It sounds like the spinner isn't being moved against the drum before the spin cycle starts. Most washers use a seperate spinner motor, which is lifted off the drum by a relay and / or solenoid and if one or more of those is malfunctioning, it will cause your described problem.

Hello, Here's the link to view the owners manual and exploded view of the parts for your model. Once there, click on the exact model # you have (it's listed on your dryer's data plate) so you get the right one.

How do I prep my Kenmore Elite He5t washer for move to new house

Washers n dryers usually require some balancing after a move to the new area, and when you lift the washer on a dolly, you lift it from the rear. Assuming you've already tipped the washer slighlty to one side, checked the bottom for which side has the most metal underneath. This is best done with 2 people. Do the same with the dryer. The braces are used to help balance or to keep from tipping when the machine was packed inside a large box.

Cold air

J, by the sound of your post, I believe we can rule out the ignitor and thermal fuse because you are getting some heat. You need to remove the lower panel on this dott dryer and get into the blower wheel. There are two clips to push in on the lower panel, it will pull off. Remove the vent screen and the blower wheel housing will come off by removing the quarter inch screws securing it. Once that's off see if the wheel is rubbing against the shroud or has a build up of crap in it. You can run the dryer with these parts off to check the operation. Next you want to check your primary and secondary coils on the gas valve. This is not hard either. Two screws and they are off and on. Sounds like they are not holding and you are just heating for a few seconds. Make sure the vent to the outside is clear so you are not shutting down the gas on the high limit cut out. Look at the attached pics. Number 13 and 14 are the coils I mentioned. On the other pic number 4 is the blower wheel. By your post, sounds like it could be loose or something is in there. Check these things first, then post back. See if we are going in the right direction...Catriver.
