I WOULD START BY CHECKING THE BELT. THE IMPACT OF THOSE SHOES MAY HAVE BEEN ENOUGH OF A JOLT TO CAUSE THE BELT TO COME OFF THE PULLEY OR BREAK.

2009 Kenmore Dryer. Wondering why it seems to only work on 1 drying cycle? Everytime I try to put it on another cycle all the lights flash and beep...and nothing...


sounds like the washer might not be spinning the water out of the clothes good enough . 1 60 minute cycle should dry them more than dry enough .

Kenmore 90 series makes a loud noise during spinning and it looks like the basket is loose


On most Kenmore or whirlpool dryers, you have two wheels that have rubber around them. They look like wheels off of rollerblade skates. They simply bolt on to the back, but you have to usually put a large piece of wood to act as a fulcrum as you support the weight of the drum and change out the two wheels. Check with searspartsdirect.com for the parts prior to taking the dryer apart. I had a machine that sounded like tennis shoes were rolling around the drum and fixed the issue by simply replacing these two wheels.

Good Luck

Auto dry not working on stack washer/dryer


If your dryer isn't drying, check for a simple fix first. Make sure the dryer is set on a high heat setting, empty the lint filter, and reduce the size of the load by taking out some items.

Also, check to make sure the clothes are not dripping when you put them in the dryer and make sure a dryer sheet is not blocking the vent.

It could also be a problem with your dryer not being level or the vent hose is clogged. For more tips and solutions, check out these troubleshooting steps in Dryer not drying.

When my washer is on the spin cycle it goes out of balence shuts down no matter wht size load or how i arange the load never completes the spin cycle this is a kenmore elite oasis 5 years old. #2 problem...


as for the washer there maybe a broken spring or where the spring attaches that balances the drum. look for this firest. for the dryer is it spinning around at the right speed if it is then the belt is ok. is it hot inside the dryer after running it when you open the door. if ti is check the dryer vent hose and exterior door at end of hose to see it they are plugged up . if the hose is plugged up the heat and moisture can't excape and the clothes will take a long time to dry.

My washer spins but do not dry


Assuming you have slected the right options on your control panel, sounds like your heaters are faulty, or the safety cutout is open due to a fault, in either case you need to take it apart to have it looked at.

Kenmore elite dryer


can you spin the drum by hand? if not,pull front panel off by removing three screws on bottom, remove lint screen, then remove three screws holding inlet housing ( the big brown thing in front) check to make sure not clogged with sock, panty hose ,bra underwire ,etc.
