Check that you have 220v first. Your dryer will work on 110V but will not dry. You need to check all thermostats with a ohm meter (be sure to unplug dryer), they should be 2 ohms or less. Set ohm meter to 1x. If they are good go to heating element (your ohm meter should be on 1X as wel. You need to check to make sure you have continuity (however, this does not mean that it is not bad). You need to take it out and visually inspect it to make sure it has no breaks in the coil. If it does you can buy a rewire kit for runder 30 bucks for most models.

I've bought a Defy Autodry tumble dryer, but the black "rubber" on the door keeps coming out, which then pushes the door open, and the machine then automatically stopped. Can i just replace...

My kenmore 110.66512694 is not drying and is not turning off automatically, i have to turn it off myself or it will run forever.


Their are 2 types of dryers. Electronic dryness sensing style and Autodry style. Yours is Autodry.
Electronic dryers have a dryness board which relies on info from moisture sensing bars that the wet clothes rub against. AutoDry models like yours alternates the power between the heating element and the timer motor. This is what you heating assembly looks like:

Check all the components on the heating assembly for continuity.
