Question about Kenmore 72062 Gas Dryer

1 Answer

Cold air 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: 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.

Check the vent on the back. This is indicating a air flow issue. If the vent is clear ohm the heater out check it for continuity.

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
