Question about Dryers

1 Answer

I have a Kenmore Elite model #11065942401 that just stopped working. I'm not no sounds or movement of any kind. The dryer had stopped so I opened the door to take out the clothes and I heard a pop. Now nothing on the dryer works. What could it be? I checked all my circuit breakers and found one tripped. Even after resetting it I'm still getting nothing from the dryer. Any suggestions?

Something like a fuse or circuit breaker blew in the drier. Hopefully that and not the main circuit board!

    I didn't think of that. Do you know where the fuse in the drier would be located?

    It is probably behind the main panel...be careful...turn off the breaker before you go in there!

    I had to take a break from this project until I got a voltage tester. At least now I can zero in on a specific area.

    I changed the thermal non resetting fuse and still nothing. Is there another fuse that I should look at?

SOURCE: Tripping circuit breaker

if the dryer trips the breaker right away its a problem with the dryer if its after a while its the breaker. call an electrician to make sure the wires are secured tight to the breaker and the breaker is rated correctly. i can almost guarantee its the breaker.

Check spring tab behind door switch-if it's bent/out of adjustment, circuit will act like door is always open.

To confirm this, open door, set dryer to active setting, and hold in door switch; if it comes on, then it's either the spring tab, or the switch is malfunctioning

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite Oasis Dryer 6705 not start

I take the timed approach with appliance problems. If they occur 10 years after purchase, I buy a new one. If five years, I call a repair service and measure the cost of repair against the purchase of a replacement. If one year or less after purchase, I pile the expensive, offending, useless lump of an example of the decline of American workmanship into the back of my pickup and push it out on the doorstep of the store where I purchased it.

I find this method to be the most cost-effective and least troubling. And costs me about the same as calling the repair service.

In fact, right now I'm loading up my Kenmore Elite Oasis 6705, purchased March 13, 2007, (note that the problem began one month AFTER the warranty ran out) in the back of my pickup and I will make at quick stop at Sears to push it off the back of my truck (I find if I don't stop, but keep the truck rolling it makes for a much louder and attention grabbing drop off) then find the nearest hardware store so I can purchase some strong nylon line to string across my backyard so I can dry my clothes. I also purchase a bit of extra line so that I have enough to string up any Sears or Kenmore representatives who might stop by to inquire about the appliance they found on their doorstep.

There is a thermal fuse in the back of the dryer, its usually white plastic, usually with 2 lite blue wires going to it.its probally blown...you can check it with an ohm meter......but if it is blown make sure you check the vent hose to make sure it aint kinked off that usually causes them to blow. if it aint that, be sure to make sure the heating element aint shorted to the heater box.or the thermostats aint stuck....the thermal is a safety feature and something caused it to blow

How do you replace the heating element part #3387747


Remove the back panel and on the left you will find the element in a housing. Just take the one screw out that holds it and slide the element out. BE SURE TO UNPLUG THE DRYER FIRST.

My kenmore elite dryer model 110 63032102 won't turn on


Check the door switch. Push it by hand and you should hear it click. If no click is heard, replace the door switch with this part.
If the switch is OK, then the only other problem will be with the thermal fuse located on the rear of the machine. Here is a link to that part.

Number 34 is the sensor strips located on the rear bulkhead inside the dryer. Clean them thoroughly with Windex or 409. Dryer sheets build a wax buffer on them sensors that moisture cannot penetrate.

Kenmore elite dryer model #110.63952102 start button wont stay on everything else works


I have the same problem with my Kenmore Elite dryer (model#110.74992300), and I replaced both the motor and heater relay and the problem solved. You can get the relay from www.mouser.com for $3 each. The model for the relay is T9AP1D52-48. You may want to open up the dryer to verify the relay model, it is printed on the relay.
