Question about Kenmore 62602 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Wont dry very fast

I have a kenmore 90 series that takes forever to dry cloths. It dryes the cloths but it takes much longer than normal. The filters are clean and the dryer vent is clean as well. Do these driers have more than one heater element?

    Hummm... I took the cover off the back and found one of the 110 legs on the power in has some green funk built up around the connector end that screws to the dryer itself. Could it have a bad connection here and cause this problem?

    Where is it??? :)

    I have same problem, it takes almost twice time than in other dryers. I was trying to open bqack cover and noticed back cover is welded on the top. I was wondering to break that welded part or there is other way to open this back cover.

Nope change the control thermostat mounted beside the skinny white fuse on the blower housing.

    Naw I don't think so, more than likely a blockage or control thermostat issue from what you is describing.

    It mounts on the blower housing and is accessed by removing the rear dust cover on most machines.Right next to the thermal fuse.

Have a Kenmore 90 series gas dryer model 110. 72922188 that won't come up to heat and dry the clothes...Popped the front, cleaned all the lint areas, checked the cycle knobs for proper setting, tub/ motor...


aslong as the ignitor is glowing red then a click frome the flame switch and lights the burner tube and continues to repeat this over then dryer is ok ...... take venting off back of dryer and do a test load .... that will solve if it's a venting problem... if dryer dryes clothes with venting off back of dryer then it is a venting problem ..... from vent tube to out side exhaust... if dryer dosent dry clothes with vent off then u need to replace the gas coils black cylinders on top of gas valve... cost around $30.00 and very easy to installl 2 phillips screws in bracket cap on top of the coils slide off and replace one at a time there is a large coil and small coil and they both come in same kit and need to go back in the same spot they came off in ....part numbers..# 306106 306105 or recheck your model number off dryer data plate and order off sears.com

Kenmore electric dryer 110.60712990 Series 70 heats but does not dry the clothes. A friend with a meter came over and said that there is 9.8 ohms resistance on the heating element. Is this within normal...


Your heating element is good. It should read between 9 to 13 ohms. If the heating circuits are working, then you don't have a problem with the heating circuits. The numbe ron cause of drye heat related problems, or longer dry times, is poorly installed, or clogged ventilation. A simple test to try is to remove the exhaust vent hose from the back of the dryer and attempt to dry a load of clothes as you normally would. The air escaping the exhaust should be forceful and warm (about 140 degrees).

If the air flow is normal, and your clothes dry normally, the problem is with your exhaust ducting from the point where it leaves your dryer to where it exits your home. I would recommend you inspect the entire length of your exhaust ventliation to make sure it is free of kinks or clogs if this is the case.

If the air flow is weak, then the problem is INTERNAL to the dryer. The most common source of the problem is a clog in the blower fan housing preventing air to flow properly. Remove the blower fan housing cover and clean as necessary. Make sure the blower fan can turn unobstructed.

Let me know if you still have problems. I hope this helps you.

LG takes forever to dry clothes


Hi, First chech the vent. I would try and hook up a shop vac that can blow out or I have used an electric leaf blower. The lead blower is great because it has so much power. In your situation with the vent taking the path it does, you will need a lot of air. Another option is to unhook the vent from the dryer and try drying a load of laundry. If it dryes fast, you can be sure it is the vent.
Because this is an electric dryer, the vent is most common problem.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.
