Kenmore HE2 Dryer Does Not Autmatically Shut Off

My Kenmore HE2 Dryer will not always cycle down and turn off. Most of the time the timer will stop at 21 minutes left and continue to run even though the clothes are dry.

    YES I have this same problem. I checked the owner's manual and didn't get much help from the trouble shooting page.

    All depends how long do you2 have this washer I highly suggest that you return it if is less then a year. if you opt to have ti fixed yourself you will be stuck in the "lemon law" policy, which is seriously broken.

    just take it back, and do not let them talk you into sending a tech out.

    An acvice for everyone: all front load washers are HIGH MAINTENANCE MACHINES! you MUST: use special soap/ watch the loads/ keep door open/ use mesh bags/ the list goes on!

    Your rating is very important to me

Machine stops after wash cycle will not drain and shut down.

Either the pressure switch is not operating as it should, or if it is, then the timer is not advancing as it should.
Pressure switches can fail as with any switch, but one must always check the pressure switch hose for blockages or air leaks first, as the Pressure switch will only operate if the hose is airtight.
Once these two things are checked, then comes the Timer. Repairs of this type can be costly, so be sure you feel that the age of and condition of your appliance justifies that kind of expense to you before proceeding.

Kenmore 110.60812990 will not stop

if it's not advacing in time dry you have a bad timer,that timer should count down no matter what the dryer is doing,if you have it in auto then it could be no heat,when it's in auto or more or less cycle the heat comes on and the timer won't move until the heat shuts down,when the heat is off timer advances,when the heat starts the timer stops,it will do this until the clothes are dry and then timer will shut off but in timed cycle,timer isn't counting down get a new timer.

My kenmore stacked washer/dryer has a wash cycle that can last for 12 hours. it will ultimately finish and clothes will be cleaned properly but it takes long breaks during the cycle.

The time it takes to do a cycle is determined by the washing machine timer. That is driven by a clock motor. This is an older machine so what is happening is that the motor on the timer is stopping and starting. A replacement timer is sold only as a complete assembly. I'm fairly sure you washing machine does the best job in the world in cleaning cloths.
Hope this helps,

Kenmore front loading washer shut down 3/4 of a way through cycle and will not turn on

Could be something in the pump causing the shutdown. Remove the bottom panel and find the tech sheet for your model. themobilian_290.jpgthemobilian_291.jpgthemobilian_292.jpgThe Handy hippy has a nice home video he made. I put it on my blog page HERE

Kenmore dryer

It sounds to me like a problem with the timer. Timers do not get repaired...they get replaced.
I hope this helps you out is not always the best news to find out it is going to cost money but if it is not under warranty we really have little choice in the matter....Thanks for choosing Fixya and a click on the yes bow with a rating would be great if you can remember to on your way out of our site.

Clothes smell like gas


A gas leak can cause a fire in your home. Although, we have always used a gas dryer, and the clothes do have a fresher smell to them than an electric dryer. Any gas which may be in the area would be consumed when the gas flame was burning as normally the pilot remains lit throughout the drying cycle.

Kenmore stack washer and dryer

gabehart....sounds like belt is slipping. Replace it. The water pump is on a separate smaller motor so is not affected by the agitator/spin motor.
