SOURCE: Kenmore 80 series dryer stoping after running for 10 to 15 minute

Start any cycle. Dryer runs for 10 to 15 minutes, then stops before cycle is complete. Start again, stops again in 10 to 15 minutes.

SOURCE: Overheating/burnt rubber smell

classical sign of a bad motor. the motor has a thermal switch on it telling the unit to shut off when it gets hot. after it cools down, the switch will tell the motor to turn back on again. good luck, i'm pretty sure that's your problem. contact me for further help if needed. thanks :)

SOURCE: Roper dryer stopped working during cycle REX6634RQO

replace your t-fuse again but also chekc to see if the vent going outside is restricted. if hte vent is smashed or clogged the heat has nowhere to go. i would say that is your issue. clean your vent before you change he t-fuse.

Inglis dryer is squealing like a belt loose. it subsides during cycle but a burnt rubber smell is very prominent when finished


Replace the belt - it is old and worn out. The belt is made of rubber and is slipping, causing the smell and squeak. The belt heats up and becomes more flexible after the dryer runs a while; this is why the squealing stops.

it sounds like its bad...they usually will drag slightly when you push start. in other words, you can hear a delay in it starting...almost a hum, but not always...if its smelling like burnt wiring..it usually cuts off and will not come back on until it cools down..

Are you sure its the motor thats making noise?? if a roller goes bad..it will go thump,thump, thump and they make alot of noise too...does it stop during the cycle? if you have more question, let me know and hope this helps

Kenmore 70 dryer smells burnt


There could be dust settled on the motor inside from the few years in storage. Unplug and remove back, with a hoover brush **** off all dust but do this lightly as to not disturb any connections.

Kenmore Electric Dryer Series 80 110.86980800 burning smell


If this is a new element, this is normal until it has been used a few cycles. Use it and watch it carefully for a while. If it continues have a competent person to take the rear panel off and check for burnt wires or lint inside the unit.

KENMORE DRYER WILL NOT START


It sounds like the motor has burned up or is burning up is why you are getting that smell. There could at the same time be a wire that has come loose or burned off that is causing it not to come on.
