    Is it heating while it is running? Exactly how long does it run and what kind of noise is it making?

    Yes it is working like normal and then 10 minutes it shuts off and the button makes a noise if you try to turn it on again

    The motor is overheating and will need to be replaced. If it runs, then stops and will start again after a short while, the circuit is bad on the motor. Here is the part to order.http://bit.ly/T76v49

    I checked the part that you are saying and it comes back that it is not for a Kenmore Dryer and for 140.00 I might as well but a new one right?

SOURCE: Kenmore 70 series dryer shuts off and won't restart

IT SOUNDS AS THOUGH THE MOTOR IS OVERHEATING AND SHUTTING ITSELF OFF. THAT IS ABOUT THE ONLY THING ON THE DRYER THAT WOULD SHUT IT OFF AND NOT ALLOW IT TO START AGAIN RIGHT AWAY, BUT LET IT START AFTER A WHILE. MAKE SURE THE MOTOR TURNS FREELY. IT SHOULD NOT DRAG OR HUMM WHEN TRYING TO START.

when you try to start it again do you hear a humming comeing from the motor? can you jump start it by turning the drum while holding the start button? If you say yes to these questions you have a bad motor.

Make sure the vent is clear.
Does the motor humm when it starts?
If it humms then the motor is bad. Make sure the rollers are not stuck or that the blower has obstructions inside.

Kenmore 90 series electric dryer. Buzzez when you press the start. Sometimes it runs for a couple minutes then shuts off. is this the motor or a start capacitor?


Thermostat controls heat. There is also a motor centrifulgal switch, in the element circuit, that the motor closes to insure the motor is turning. Try another heat setting. There is more than one thermostat. You may have blown the 'thermal fuse' too, which requires replacement.

Tripped high limit. Must clean the lint filter and the exhaust vent tube and all the way in to the dryer. Hot air exit is restricted.

Makes squeaking noise after running for about 10 minutes


there are 2 drum rollers at the back of the dryer. shut off power, pull drum and you will see 2 rubber wheels. there is a little plastis triangle that keeps the roller in place. try spinning the rollers . they probably will not spin too freely. remove triangles ,inspect inside of roller the stainless steel bearing may have gunk on it try to clean off . also check shaft roller rides likewise remove any debri use a little rubbing alcohol to remove gunk. also check the idler roller that routes the belt for the same things. good luck

Kenmore Dryer 90 Series will start but suddenly stop...


what starts and stops? the entire dryer or maybe the drum? Do you do anything to make it restart other than pushing the start button? This initially sounds like a temperature switch is opening and resetting after it cools. If you can describe the problem a little more in detail it would help.
