Question about Kenmore 63942 Dryer
I have a Kenmore Heavy Duty Dryer that runs for just a minute then it goes back off. Now it will not come on at all. No circuit breakers are tripped.
If the dryer is still powered on but the motor stops, it sounds like the over load in the motor is cutting out and the motor will have to be replaced.

The circuit breaker may be tripping because of a fault with the dryer or it may be a fault with the circuit breaker being weak.
From the description you give the circuit breakers trip frequently.
I'd suggest you first try selecting the no heat air fluff cycle and run it to see if the breaker trips. If the circuit breaker doesn't trip in air fluff then there is likely a short in the heating element.
With a clamp-on amp meter you can read the amp draw of the dryer when it is heating. With the motor and element both working you would see approximately 25-26 amperes being drawn. The breaker is rated at 30 amps. If the breaker trips and only 26 amps are being drawn then the breaker is the problem.
Try the air fluff cycle first and see if the breaker will trip. Then with additional details I may be able to help you further.
