Kenmore usually glues a copy of the wiring diagram/schematic on the inside of the back service access panel, or folded up inside the control head.

If you can't find it, give me the full model number and let me see what I can find.

Kenmore 68731 model 86873100 setting the drying to any of the drying methods, the dial does not move to automatically turn off the dryer.


You have a bad timer motor To verify you will get an ohm meter and remove the wires to the motor.

Check between the motor wires fer continuity. If you have continuity then the next test will verify if the gears are stripped on the motor. Apply power to the timer motor and see if it advances on its own. From looking at your model number I see nothing unusual about the timer.
to get to the[parts list I did 110.36873100. 110 is a the large prefix which ID's the dryer as being a whirlpool model. All kenmores ain't Whirlpool.

The dryer is not heating up and the dial stops at the cool down so the dryer will not shut off by it self. Its a kenmore 70 series dryer.


you need to send the model number,open the door and look around the opening where you put the clothes into the dryer and you'll see the tag with the model number.it will start with 110. or 417.because you have no heat that's why the timer won't advance,when the heat shuts down then the timer advances when the heat comes back on the timer stops moving or advancing,no heat the timer won't move.send the model number

Disconnect power to the dryer and remove the screws attaching the console rear panel to the console and pull the panel off.

Inspect the wires connected to the timer and ensure a snug fit connection. Clean the connectors and terminals then reseat it several times to ward off dirt within the connectors.

Reconnect power to the dryer and start it; replace the timer (part number 3398195 ) if the dryer still won't stay running. Unplug the dryer and pull the timer knob off the console. Remove the screws securing the timer to the bracket and remove it. Secure the new timer in place then disconnect the wires from the old timer one at a time and connect it to the corresponding terminal on the new timer.

Push the timer back into position on the console and secure the console rear panel in place.

Kenmore Electric Dryer Model 110.6972110 timer motor NG


hi,

maybe call a generic appiance store other than sears, try maytag store. the knob pulls staight off and the timer nut is below. then take off the back cover off the control panel, sometimes those screws are on the front corners, sometimes hidden. take a picture of the timer wiring and tape and label all the wires before you remove it. unplug it first!!

My Kenmore dryer heats as it should but the timer dosent move and the dryer stays on.


This is a common problem. Dryer timers are advanced by a motor that turns gears and moves the dial (and internal switching) forward. The timer needs to be repaired or replaced. More than likely the latter since most timers are riveted together and cannot be repaired (unless you're someone who can put a geared jigsaw puzzle back together without any instructions since they normally fall to pieces when opened). I have tried to repair some timers and have been marginally successful, but to have a piece of mind, order the part, have it replaced (wire for wire when the unit is unplugged from the wall). If the timers look different, it is still possible that they gave you the correct timer. Verify that the new and the old timers have the same letter and number markings on each of the wires.

It is best to label the wires as you remove them from the old timer with a piece of tape and a sharp pointed marker. That way there is no question which wire is which.

Hope that helps you.

I have a kenmore model 417.93042201 gas dryer that is about 5 years old. I had to replace the ignitor and in the process I removed the front of the cabinet. When I put it back together the dryer worked...


Look on the loose wire for a letter or number, it will be one or two inches from the female spade connector end. Then look on the timer and look for an empty terminal and see if the number or letter matches the one on the wire. If so, bingo! Attach the wire to the timer and see what happens. Also you could look on the wiring diagram for white wire and see where it positivley goes. Good luck. Remember to do all work with the unit unplugged!!

Kenmore Dryer stopped running


This sounds like you may have blown the thermal fuse.  If you turn the dryer around facing the back, remove the screws holding the back panel on (be sure to unplug the pigtail from the wall!!!).  When you remove the back panel, down towards the bottom, you will see a plastic piece (could be long and square, or rounded type.  Do believe it will be the long type) with 2 wires going to it.  It has a screw that holds it it.  This fuse protecs the unit and motor from excess heat and electrical issues.
