Sounds as if you have a belt or tub roller problem. Either can be fixed fairly easy but you will have to remove the tub. This is normally done by removing the top, then the front of the dryer. It would help a lot if you had someone to help you remove the tub.

Dryer won't start


First, let's look at the switch on the door that is supposed to not allow the dryer to start if the door is open.
If this switch fails, could cause the problem. (Somewhat common)
Second, the switch that is supposed to start the machine could have failed. (Not too likely)
Then check the circuit breaker in your "fuse box" in the hall or garage or basement or wherever.
Circuit breakers can trip and not look like it. You might switch them (there are 2 together) on and off a few times to see if that is the problem.
Be blessed.

What do I do when error code reads E 15 . Dryer runs for a few seconds than shuts down. I've tested micro switch and i'ts fine.


Post some pictures of your pilot assembly. I think this might be one of them spark sensor deals where the pilot lights and then detects flame then relays that back to the control for igniton verification. OR just try and clean up the electrode with steel wool and see if the flames stays lit is what I would try.

Dryer won't stay running. It will start, run 10-15 seconds, then shut off. I can restart it immediately but get the same results.


i would check the door switch. it may be worn just enough that the vibration of the dryer opens the circuit for just a moment. then check for other loose connections. the fact that you can restart immediately usually indicates a momentary break in the circuit. a temperature switch usually takes a short time to reset. while it's still running, try rattling various switches or smack the door to see if it shuts off. (just a couple of simple ideas to start with).
good luck....jay

Dryer was running and drum stopped spinning but still runs


The weight of the wet cushion broke the drum belt. A good handyman can do it or, it's not a terribly expensive service call.

Hello my Kenmore Dryer is working fine although taking alot longer to dry the clothes. I took everything apart and clean it, no vent blockage, and great air circulation through dryer. I was wondering; is...


THE ELEMENT CYCLES. NO IT DOESN'T STAY ON THE WHOLE TIME, BUT IT SHOULD BE ON FOR MORE THAN A BRIEF SECONDS TOO. POST ME THE MODEL NUMBER FOUND SOMWHERE AROUND THE DOOR AND I'LL HELP FURTHER. THERE ARE THERMOSTAT/S HIGH-LIMIT SHUT OFF SWITCHES AND IF THEY ARE NOT FUNCTIONING PROPERLY IT WILL CAUSE DRYING TIME PROBLEMS

Faulty selector switch or control card. There is the possibility of a faulty moisture sensor. Can you operate the machine in manual mode ?
