I hate to tell you this, but it is probably the timer. The good news is that it is easy to replace and you don't have to have a tech to do it.

I typed in 66812 not the number that is showing - I need to know what receptacle to use with the Kenmore 66812 electric dryer. Thanks for any help you can give me.


on the front of dryer open the door there should be a tag or on the rear where the cord goes into the dryer there should be a tag to tell you what the voltage is
should be a 250 volt plug and outlet to match
nema # plug-S42 AND THE OUTLET # 6-30 OR 6-50

Dryer just stopped


The dryer will not start with a broken door switch. Replace the door switch if found defective.

Most dryers have a door switch actuator lever - when you close a dryer door, it presses against the lever, which actuates the door switch. If the lever is broken, the switch would not activate and the dryer would not start. Replace the lever, if broken.

Note: Door switch actuator lever usually comes with the door switch assembly and it is recommended to get the whole assembly since there is almost no price difference between the door switch assembly and just the lever. Check your model for more details.

I would also, check the Thermal Fuse as well.

Th pilot won't start ,motor start but won't light the pilot


I have a Kenmore Series 80 (Model # 66812694, Stock # 66812) that will not start. The light comes on, but no power when you push the start button. I have checked the fuse box and everything is fine. I've also tried unplugging for 10-15 minutes and replugging it in, but no success. Any suggestions?

Electric dryer heat coil off mid cycle


You have 3 thermostats. By the description of the problem it sounds like it needs a new high limit thermostat. All 3 thermostats and the heating coil can be checked with an ohm meter. Also check the ground on the heating coil. It could be grounding it's self out.
