Question about Kenmore 63942 Dryer

1 Answer

Kenmore Ultra Fabric care dryer was running. Went to put next load in, and nothing. Light stays on, even with door shut. Its an older model and I didn't see a door switch anywhere. Where is it? The dryer will not run at all. It acts like the door is open.

I have a Kenmore fabric care 220 dryer cleaned the left side sensor started to heat went cold again


Heating elements could be going bad. Or the high temp fuse is out. Check the fuse for continuity and inspect the element for any breaks in the wiring

Dryers don't have fuses, I would say the heating element has went bad, not to hard to change

Hi, my dryer is shutting off in the middle of the drying cycle. It will sometimes go back on and sometimes not. It is still heating up when it is running. If you would give me an indication of...


it may be the thermofuse, which is a safety feature. You can bypass it. I believe to have someone work on it would be under a $100 if that is the problem. I do not know how often this happens but I am assuming that it happens every time you try to do a load of laundry. If this is true then I would take the fuse out tape the wires together and watch the dryer complete a load of laundry. I would then buy a new fuse which are under $30. The fuse is a safety feature which will keep the dryer from catch fire as it shuts it down if it gets to hot. Hope this helped tim
