Question about Kenmore 62802 Electric Dryer

3 Answers

Kenmore model number 110-66912692

Timer is going very slow. I would like to replace it.

Is it a hard job? I have replaced a water pump in a Kenmore Fridge.

Is there a site where I can get the instructions?

Thank you very much for your help.

    Thanks guys. The wife tells me that it is taking double the time that it "usually" does. (whatever that means) you know women.

    She said that it will "eventually" turn off.

It's not a hard job at all. i just replaced mine because two of the contacts were welded together. all you have to do is remove the back plate from the control panel. it has about 5 screws with 1/4" hex heads. then I think there are two more 1/4" screws that hold the timer in place. when you take the wires off the timer on the back make sure that the terminals they're connected to are labeled. i'll tell you what i mean by that. the one that i replaced had labels for each color of wire that went to each terminal. for instance: the black and yellow wire went to the terminal that was labeled "BY" and the blue lead was labeled "BU" etc. if you want to be on the safe side, just take a couple of pictures of it with a digital camera or your cell phone but it's pretty straight forward. if the timer isn't labeled as to where the wires go, just label them yourself. good luck

Kenmore timers are easy to replace

1) Disconnect power.
2) Slide out from wall.
3) Remove 3 screws across back of control head.
4) Pull plug connector from back of timer.
5) Remove knob (pull.).
6) Remove 2 screws and lift timer out.
7) Re-assemble in reverse order.

Timers do turn slowly. If the dryer runs, and never quits, then the timer is probably bad. But if the dryer runs for up to two hours or so, then it is probably OK. Reply back what problems are you experiencing.

It is fairly simple .The older style you yank the knob straight off and get the hex head screws out (2) The newer style you release a locking tab in the rear and twist the timer 1/4th a turn. So easy you won't believe it.

    Reach inside the drum and clean the gunk off the 2 long metal sensors. They measure capacitance in the wet clothes to determine dryness. They work in conjunction with a moisture sensing board mounted beside the timer. It will only power up the motor on the timer if no moisture has been sensed by those metalic strips. Try that first and if you still have trouble yank out the connector on the sensing board and clean the copper contacts with alcohol. Retry.

Kenmore elite dryer # 110.70982990 timer problem

The timer is bad. Specifically the timer advance motor is going bad. It is a little electric motor located on the back of the timer. It movers the knob forward automatically as the dryer runs cutting down on time remaining. You usually have to buy the entire timer, you cant replace just that part.

Kenmore 70 Series Dryer not heating and not cutting off

I had an identical problem to yours this weekend with my Kenmore dryer. There were 2 problems.

1. Timer was broken. Does not advance to "OFF" position on timed dry, however it still works for auto-dry.

2. Thermal fuse was blown. Upon replacing, dryer heated up normally.

I believe when the timer broke, the dryer had kept running and blew the thermal fuse. On Sears' website, thermal fuse is $5.30, timer is roughly $80.

Water leak from Kenmore elite

If the leaks happens during drain cycle, this is usually because of a leak on the drain pump hose, or because of a faulty drain pump that is leaking.

As the appliance must be taken apart and the pump may need replacement, it is better to call a repairman to do the job.

Check that leak is not from drain hose, from water supply hoses, or from gasket first.
