Question about Kenmore 73952 Gas Dryer

1 Answer

Kenmore series 90 dryer will not start

Checked breakers, power cords, &Etc.
I put clothes in to dry after running one previous load, but would not start to dry second load. I have a light inside but dryer will not run.
I think it may be the thermal fuse, where is this located and how I remove it??
Thank you, in advance for your time.

    I popped the back cover off, what a job! and found not only had the thermal fuse tripped, but the belt was broken as well, it's working fine now.
    Many thanks

Http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/cgi...2519&brand=WPL depending on model it sounds as if it is the thermal fuse, the cabinet will have to be opened , some are in back...either way you must unplug the dryer Safety First.. :)

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 .

Started drying load, dryer shut off. won't turn on. checked door, changed thermal fuse, checked breaker. still doesn't work. light also not on.


If this is an electric dryer, you may have lost half of the power supply to it. Unplug and remove the little cover plate above where the power cord enters the dryer. Look at the 3 screws holding on the power cord for burned/black looking or loose connections. If nothing wrong there, shut off house breaker and remove cover on house plug where you plug the dryer into and look for same type of issues.

My dryer is on but it wont dry my clothes


Start by checking that the exhaust pipe is not blocked. Without airflow drying will be very slow. If you have good airflow, then the next item to check is the heating element, which can be checked with an ohm meter.

When I push the start button, nothing happens. I have checked the breaker and the plug, both are OK. I just completed drying a load of clothes.

I have a kenmore dryer 80 series it only makes a lite sound when I push the start button. I won't come on. The power is good.


The Kenmore 80 Series of dryers are consumer grade dryers for home use. As with most home appliances, the Kenmore 80 series dryers will occasionally not work as intended. If a problem occurs with your dryer, however, you do not necessarily need it serviced by a technician. You can attempt to troubleshoot and fix any problems with your dryer before contacting a technician.

  1. Kenmore 80 Series dryers may not run for several reasons. First, make sure that the power cord is plugged into a working power outlet. You may need to plug a different device into the outlet to check that it is receiving power. If the second device does not run on the power outlet, you may have blown a fuse or tripped a circuit breaker. Check your fuse box or circuit breaker box and make the change as needed.
    Next, make sure that the dryer door is fully shut. The dryer will not run with the door ajar.
    Finally, check that the "Start" button was fully pressed and that a cycle was chosen on the machine. If you do not choose a cycle for the dryer, it will not run.
  2. If your Kenmore 80 Series dryer does not heat up during use, check that a heat cycle has been chosen for the load. There are several different dryer cycles you can choose, some of which do not use heat. Make sure that you have chosen a heated cycle.
    As above, check that you have not blown a fuse or tripped a circuit breaker. The dryer may use more than one fuse or breaker: one is used to power the drum, and the other for the heating element. Make sure that both fuses or breakers are in working order.
  3. There may be times when Kenmore Series 80 dryers do not fully dry your clothes. When this occurs, check the lint screen and clear out any lint. The air may not flow as well if the lint screen is clogged.
    Next, check to see if the exhaust vent is clogged. Lint and other particles may clog the exhaust vent over time, restricting air flow and making it more difficult to dry your clothes. To check the vent, run the dryer and hold your hand under the vent. If you do not feel any air flow, clean or replace the vent.
    If you used cold water to rinse the clothes it may take longer than normal to dry. The same is true if the load of laundry is very wet or is filled with items that are very absorbent.
    Finally, check the load size. The more clothes in the load the longer it will take to dry. If you want to reduce drying time, separate the clothes into piles of light and heavy items and dry them separately.
  4. please comment on these solution by saying how helpful.
