Question about Kenmore Oasis HE 27082 Top Load Washer
The dryer will run down to the number 7, and then run continuously at that same number without beeping down to zero. It just satys at 7? Many time the clothes will not fully dry?
Have you checked the vent duct, all the way to the outside of the house, to make sure you get a strong blast of air at the discharge? I've seen lint build up in the louver enough to limit air flow, and depending on how it is sitting, you can not always see the lint unless the dryer is runnig.
And, if you look up inside the drum, you'll see a grate area where the heated air comes from the burner. That grate should be clear of lint. If not, you'll need to access it from the backside and collect all the loose lint.
Also, make sure the vent hose doesn't crimp when you push the dryer back to the wall.
It might be that you have a bad over temp thermostat, but I would expect that to reset in a period of time. It would extended the dry cycle, but it doesn't explain the timer stopping. And last but not least, it could be the timer, but if I remember correctly, you said nudging the timer doesn't make the burner come back on.
Let me know what you find. I'm curious to help you fix this.
