Welcome-
does anything with the dryer work at all? if nothing works then from reading around it sounds like the motor went bad on you and they can be very spendy. but to make sure i need the model number and the exact brand.

    a motor assembly from sears will cost $126.99 + tax

  • Thomas Jan 08, 2009

    you can go to this website and seee for yourself that the back whole cover can not be removed.

    http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdir...**.shcapp3206?modelNumber=110+60907990&pop=flush

    click on cabinet and you can see for yourself. now there should be smaller cover doors on the back that can be removed. the only fuse that is in this dryer is thr thermal fuse located on the bulkhead diagram number 59 on the diagram.

    let me know what else i can help you with cause it aint fixed tell you say so.



    thanks

Mine was the switch for the door. I just eliminated the switch. The only problem was it wouldnt shut of when you open the door. Just turn the knob to off then open.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

With some dryers, failure of the door closed/lock switch/sensor would cause no power to the electronics inside. Try opening/closing and/or checking the locking tab of the door itself.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Kenmore Dryer-90 Series- Pushed Start button nothing happened


get a meter,unplug the dryer and read out the fuse,pull one of the wires off when you read it out,also when was the last time you cleaned out the dryer?if it's the fuse usually the air isn't moving very well,you need to clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,vac out the inside of dryer where the motor is and clean out the vent line and make sure the outside vent is clear,if it's a long run from the back of dryer to the outside i use a leaf blower to blow out the vent line,make sure you have 240 coming in at the back of dryer,you could have a blown fuse,if the thermal fuse is good,check the thermostats on the heater box and read out the heater,good luck,if i can help with anything else let me know

How do I find the fuses on an old (circa 1983) Lady Kenmore Sears Best dryer, that suddenly stopped working, to check if they are burnt out?


The fuses should be close to where the cord comes into the back of the dryer. You may need to turn the dryer on its side or remove the back cover to gain access. Unplug the dryer before starting your search.

Push button and it doesnot start cheaked switch and it is good what could be wrong


on the kenmore dryers you have to take the back cover off, should be 9 quarter inch screws and when looking at the back of the unit on the lint trap cover on the left there will be a small white fuse with 2 prongs this is called the thermal fuse. There is one quarter inch screw holding it on just remove the screw and replace the fuse and that will fix ya all up. You can call sears with your model number to get the part number and price, they usually don't go for more than $10. Number is 1-800-4my-home.

Dryer will not turn on although the timer is working


IF your hearig a click when you push the start button then the button and relay are good check the saftey switch on the door to see if it has come loose and follen down or moved back if the switch is not pressed the motor will not work also I have seen the switches go bad you need to unplug the dryer and cross the too wires togeather plug the dryer back in and press the start button if she starts order a new swith. The motor could also be bad you nees to remove the back cover and check to see when the button is pressed if you are getting the correct voltage you will need a volt meter to check this they cost around 10- 20 bucks if you have correct voltage from the wires and the conections to the motor are ok the motor is no good and needs to be replaced hope this helps...

Kenmore Dryer electric 70 series will not start


The thermal fuse may be blown. The fuse is a white plastic item located behind the back cover on the blower box housing. It has two blue leads attached to it.
  1. Unplug the dryer.
  2. Remove the back cover.
  3. Identify the thermal fuse (white, two blue leads, one screw)
  4. Remove the two blue leads.
  5. Using a multimeter set to ohms, check the continuity of the fuse, it should "peg" the meter if the fuse is good, if the meter does not react, the fuse is blown.
  6. Remove and replace the fuse. Replacements can be found either online or at your nearest Sears.
