Question about Kenmore 62802 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

My Dryer will not start. Model 110.62802100 Kenmore

I had a load of towels in opened the door to check them. They were not dry yet had it for running for 60 minutes. Closed the door reset for another 40 min and when i pushed the start botton it turned on for a second then shut off. Will not restart. Had the start and door switch tested and they work. Is the motor bad?? Also there is a YELLOW AND RED wire just hanging there and they said its a Moisture sensor wire but I dont think this dryer has one on it. Could that be the problem??

Does the drum turn when you press Start? If so, the motor is not bad.

I am having trouble finding a wiring diagram, but I can not find a moisture sensor in the parts listing. BUT, there should not be any wires just dangling, unless the are tagged as to their purpose.

I suspect one of the following (if the drum turns)-
1) Failed thermostat
2) Failed thermal fuse on heat elements
3) Failed over temp thermostat
4) Failed heat element

Please reply your findings and we can help further.

Everythings dries fine in my Kenmore dryer except for towels. It takes 2+ hours to dry a load of towels. What could be the issue?


Make sure that the moist warm air from the dryer can escape from the room where the dryer is located and that the Lint filter is clean and, if fitted, the air control vent is fully open.

The dryer needs to get clean fresh air with little or no moisture tro work properly: opening window/door to let the excessive moist air escape will help.

Hope it helps!

My Kenmore dryer does not get hot enough to dry a load


If your dryer IS still heating, but your clothes still won't dry, you may want to check the dryer interior cabinet and/or the entire exhaust duct run to ensure you have no kinks or clogs anywhere. The following link explains many of the problems that can cause poor drying efficiency and longer dry times:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3578821-dryer_takes_too_long_to_dry

Before assuming you have a problem with the appliance, check your installation to ensure you are providing the dryer with proper exhaust and air flow. A dryer in a clogged state or having improper air flow will not dry efficiently and will cause the heating circuits to actually overheat. Eventually, this can lead to component failures and is the source of fire hazards.

If you have any questions, please post back with your complete MODEL NUMBER (located on a nameplate along the door opening) and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Takes 2-3 times running to dry a load of towels (5-6 towels) dryer is hot but not drying


There is blockage in the venting system. Check from the blower wheel to the outside. It is blocked somewhere.

Kenmore electric dryer series 90 model 66904691 will not start. Dryed a load of clothes went to start again will not do anything , checked fuse box, fuse not blown what could be the problem


Check the automatic door shut off switch and wiring. When the door closes it actuates a switch (completes and electrical circuit) which allows the dryer to operate.

Kemore Dryer will not start


the dryer is almost 15 years old! the drum rotates on two or three felt bearings in front and a ball bearing in the rear. the belt may have broken, the tensioner may have loosened. the motor goes in one direction only and starts off a centrifugal start switch. If the motor doesn't get up to speed to open the start winding, the machine just won't go. check the belt first.
