Question about Kenmore 659 Electric Dryer

Drum not turning properly

Following the removal of sock stuck between door and drum edge indesit is60v appears to have lost its ability to turn drum when more than a kilo of clothes inside. PS. I did smell burning before removal of sock - believe wedged sock stopped drum from turning properly. will attempt to repair machine myself but would appreciate some guidance as to best staring point. Thanks. Dave

Check the belt and see that it is not worn down, kind of like a fan belt on a car. You may want to replace it anyway. next, the motor be be loose from the frame it is fastened to. Feel the surface of the drum for any grooves or worn places. There may be build up of debris. You can take off top of dryer to gain easier access to the drum.

I have an indesit IS60V tumble dryer and it's no longer drying my clothes even though the dryer tumbles fine. I have checked the filters to ensure they are clean and the vent hose which all appear ok.


Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.


if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....


If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.


check out this electric no heat tip...

Help! My indesit IS60V tumble dryer is banging and dancing


Have the rear bearing and shaft checked. Had same problem briefly until it stopped all together. When I looked at it, I found that the drum rear shaft had worn through the bearing and had been riding on the rear panel. This caused the rear panel, being thin to wear through the shaft until it sheared. This could be repaired by replacing the bearing and rear shaft for around £30 but in my case I'll need to the check the motor isn't burnt out too.

Hi, My Indesit is60v tumble dryer has developed a heating (or lack of) fault. I have replaced the heating element & stats. I notice that it only heats when the drum is going in one direction, when it...


yes it will heat in one direction the longer clockwise one... when it does its short reverse tumble it switches off... there is also a duct thermostat that could be causing the premature heat output but also check the vent pipe and hose for blockage plus door filter remove and look down the hole as build up could be hidden...
