Question about Kenmore 62602 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Kenmore 90 Series Model 11060912990 Dryer won't start

When pressing the start switch, dryer sounds like it wants to start (as long as you hold the start button in), but it won't start, and eventually it stops even trying to start.

-Terminal block looks fine
-Start switch tested fine - contnuity only when switch pressed.
-Door switch tested fine - continuity with light when door open, continuity with the other terminal with the door closed.
-Timer Motor tested fine - meter read about 2400 ohms
-Thermostats tested fine - continuity found in both
-Centrifugal switch tested fine.
1-2 5-6 5-3
Out Continuity Continuity Resistance
In Resistance Resistance Continuity

Anyone have any thoughts?

    What should the reading for the timer motor be? Also, any other way to confirm that the morot is the problem?

    Turned out to be the actual motor. Replaced it, and all is well with the dryer!

Where to find fuses. My dryer is not heating up.


Does your dryer have power? If yes, then check (1) the flow of air outside the house from your dryer tube and (2) your circuit breaker panel for each circuit in the house (I've not seen fuses/breakers built into dryers -- though that could change). Then check (3) your heating element, (4) thermostat, (5) high-temp thermal cutoff switch, and (6) for debris in the air flow path to / from from the centrifugal fan.

My Sears Kenmore 90 Series takes too long to dry cloths


First you need to make sure that the lint trap is completely clean. I don't mean just taking the screen off and making sure there isn't lint on that. You need to take the cover off of the back of the dryer and remove the shute the lint screen slides into. That can be backed up and it's quite common. Also when that happens it tends to blow out the fuse that is located in the same general area. It's about an inch long, white, with two wires connected by plug on terminals. Make sure you unplug the dryer if you're going to check that. Remove the two wires and with an electrical tester check for continuity across the two terminals. If there isn't continuity you'll also need a new fuse, Hope that helps.

Kenmore dryer replaced heting element now it does not blow any air


HI danon this dryer its common to have the blower wear out, it slides on the motor shaft, and what they do is wear out the flat in the blower. that could have caused the element to fail. check the blower thanks the appliance doc. please rate my answer. thanks

Kenmore Dryer 90 Series will start but suddenly stop...


what starts and stops? the entire dryer or maybe the drum? Do you do anything to make it restart other than pushing the start button? This initially sounds like a temperature switch is opening and resetting after it cools. If you can describe the problem a little more in detail it would help.
