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?

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.

Expected longevity for Electrolux EIFLW55HMBO


Hello Connie Reiter,

You have asked essentially the same question... several times...

Perhaps you could expand on your area of concern so
that out VOLUNTEERS could get a better grasp on what you are really after...

Because the frenetic repetition indicates you are NOT GETTING what you think is a decent answer (??) from some of our MOST EXCELLENT VOLUNTEERS...

My New ELITE SEARS WASHER didn't make it out into it's EXTENDED warranty period... They had some CLOWN come to my house several times over a period of weeks... spent a lot of time on the phone and accomplished nothing.

3 months later I had to go to the store and grab (physically) a manager... to be able to USE the washer...

It was purchased as a set.

They replaced the entire washer...

Now they don't match

I have been into them (Elite) 4 times since 2005...
Our 1973 Kenmore are still working fine... we moved them to our retirement house in 2005...
Only ever changed the appliance light...

(44 years... porcelain finish, electro-mechanical timers)...
((still going strong)).

Net expectation on the NEW "STUFF"

Warranty period... period.

They are pretty but they are junk.... Sorry.

My best recommendation... keep looking!!

Pick friendly sales folks... because you are going to be dealing with them a lot...

MY OPINION... (all of this) ...
This ALL happened because of OUT-SOURCING...
and TOTALLY INCOMPETENT AMERICAN MANAGEMENT...

(Wouldn't know QUALITY if it bit them in the forehead).

Make sure the cold water supply is on and not blocked.
If the machine fills but does not wash try to find a thermal switch that is supposed to come on when the cold water has heated up.

Water is not flowing in when turned on.


There are 2 solenoid valves that control the hot and cold water that fail occassionally. Try running just the hot or cold water (Its unlikely they both failed at the same time). If either the hot or cold works, then you have a bad solenoid valve. They cost about $25

Ice maker stopped making ice


hi there,

sounds like the i/m is making ice. if you have ice in the bucket, it means that the only problem is the dispensor. if you have frost anywhere, the problem is with the actuator, which is the ice pladdle. you may have a broken spring or just the ice paddle need to be replaced.

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
