Question about Kenmore 66832 Dryer

2 Answers

Dryer turns off after one minute.

Dryer turns off after it heats up. Cools off and can start it back for another minute. Exhaust is clear and blows hot air while on. Could it be a sensor or a filter somewhere stopped up?

If the dryer shuts all the way down and you have to wait for it to cool off before it starts back then that is a bad motor it is heating up then kicking out on internal overload

Sounds as if your high temperature thermostat is going bad or is bad. Check your thermostats. If your dryer gets to hot this will shut it down for safety reason!

Speed queen electric dryer heats for about 8 minutes then heat goes off and does not come back on


The duct may be clear but the exhaust on the back of the dryer may be blocked. You have to take the back off the dryer and check where the blower is. Good luck.

You vent is plugged very bad. Disconnect the vent tubing and thoroughly clean it out. It will heat and dry like new afterwards guaranteed. These dryers have sensors that shut the burner off if the exhaust is not venting properly. Once its cleared out it will run perfectly again

Gas Dryer Stops after 30 minutes.


Your problem is caused by a motor overheating causing its internal overload to shut it down until the motor cools. If you truly have thoroughly cleaned all interior areas of your dryer and the vent leading from the house to the outside there are only two possible problems that can give you this failure.
  1. The dryer motor bearing is failing (tightening) causing the motor to be harder to turn. This will force the motor to draw more current to keep it running and this generates more heat than usual. The additional heat opens the thermal safety on the motor until it cools down. Motor needs to be replaced
  2. The air holes at each end of the motor are clogged with lint that needs to be cleared out. The body of the motor may also be coated with lint. Both these conditions will cause the thermal overload in the motor to open until it cools. Motor needs to be fully vacuumed.
Good Luck.

Check the exhaust path, where the lint trap goes. If there is lint in the path, it will retain heat that will shut the unit off. You can't just look and see, you will have to dismantle the path from dryer to final exhaust port to make sure it is all clear.

My whirl pool dryer has to be turned on bout 3 to 4 times


Ok, check the exhaust hose for obstructions. make sure the blower assembly is not clogged and, the hose is clear of any debris. the exhaust hose should blow out hot air forcefully. if the force of the air isn't blowing hard, it will not create a suitable drying environment for the element. this poor ventilation will also damage the heating element or burner Assembly.

Now, if there is sufficient air flow out of the exhaust hose, this will confirm control failure. replace the dryness sensor and control board in this case.

Here's a quick way to test for clogs. take the hose of the backside of the dryer then, start the cycle. if the drum sorts to become hot after a few minutes with the exhaust hose removed form the back of the unit, this will confirm a major block in the hose or blower assembly.

Electric dryer shutting off


most likely cause is the air duct is blocked with lint, some always gets past the screen and builts up in the exhaoust line. not enough air flow, the air gets hotter than normal and trips the over temperature cutout.
for most dryers
clear the fan, and exhaust ducting all the way to the wall, and the outside vent hood, of lint
