Question about Kenmore 64902 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Kenmore dryer The dial will not catch on any setting. It was accidentally taken off from behind and when replace it will not catch, thus the dryer cannot start. No wires were removed just the part with the small gear. What could be the problem?

If this worked before that part was taken off, then take it off agin and make sure that the gear is engaged with the other gear in side the timer unit re adjust and before putting screws back in try turnning dial if it engages the put screws back in and if this fails you may need new unit (timer unit) That small gear may be pushing on the one it's suppose to engage.

My amana DLG330RAW dryer won't stay on. it has a combo timer and start dial turn the dial to the timed settinG and push...dryer starts part way through the cycle, the dryer...


Hello PB,

What i would most suspect as being the problem of why the dryer just stops randomly before the cycle is done,is a problem with the door switch or the door catch...does the dryer restart as soon as you restart it?? if yes i would check that the door catch was broken so the door will pop open stopping the dryer. Also check the door switch using a meter set to measure ohms and see if the contact is burnt ( a good door switch will be zero ohms resistiance)

It's not drying our clothes at all


Problem sounds like the heating element has gone out. Depending on the model, usually behind the drum. Needs to be taken apart and replaced.

Is there a rest button on a kenmore dryer? I accidentely left some clothes on top of ther dryer while running the dryer and it shut off in mid-cycle. The top of the dryer was very hot, so I thought there...


Yes, there are - there are two switches. Thermal fuse and the High Limit switch located behind the back panel. Thermal fuse is a white fuse with two blue wires and the High limit switch is a black cylinder shaped fuse above the heating element. Good Luck...

Kenmore Electric dryer Model 110.8708 - brand new, worked fine for 2 days. Now suddenly the dryer door pops open on its own and shuts down the dryer. Is this an adjustment ?


Sounds like the door catch is weak. You can try to spead the prongs on the dryer catch (the metal protusion on the dryer, not the door), but be careful. Unless it's very easy to do, call the wrranty dealer for the the machine since it should still be under warranty and the catch should be replaced at no cost to you.

How do I get the front panel off of Kenmore 72722100 dryer?


You must pop the top to get the front panel off. There isn't much that you can get at though, from the front. Almost all of the working parts must be accessed from behind the machine.

To pop the top, insert a stiff putty knife, about 2-3 inches from each side, into the slot where the top & front meet. There is a catch on each side that will push in.

Kenmore dryer not heating


hi,
1) When this happens, something has interrupted the heat source. Run the dryer for a couple of minutes to see if it gets hot. Be sure you don't have the dial or controls on a non-heat setting, such as "Fluff" or "Wrinkle Control."






 


2) On an electric dryer, this may mean that the circuit breaker or fuse that controls the power has blown; reset or replace this. Be aware that a dryer may have two breakers or fuses. The motor will run when one works, but the heating element requires both.

3) On a gas dryer, recheck the control's setting to be sure it's not on a heat-free setting. Check the gas valve behind the dryer to be sure the gas supply is turned on. Also make sure the house's main gas valve is turned on.

4) Most modern dryers have electronic ignition instead of a pilot light. If yours has electronic ignition and isn't heating, call a qualified repairperson.

On an older dryer, make sure the pilot light is burning. If it isn't, relight it. You can find directions in your owner's manual, and pilot light instructions are often mounted next to the pilot light on the burner, too.

I am trying to replace the belt but the drum is still attached to the back (I have taken every visible screw out). Should I try from the front? Is there a way of getting the drum unsecured from the back?


Dryers do not open from the back
the screws removed secure parts to the inside of the case
carefully replace them.
to opent the front of the dryer
unplg dryer

type I: maytag:kenmore stackable:speedqueen:
  • remove 2 screws from bottom of front panel, swing front panel out at bottom and unhook from dop
  • remove door switch wires from switch
  • remove front panel set aside
type II: Kenmore:whirlpool:ge:frigidaire
  • remove lint filter
  • remove 2 screws in lint filter holder
  • with putty knife or other blunt blade
    depress spring catches at corners of top cover
  • lift top cover at front
  • remove 1screw each side 1/3 way down
  • remove door switch wires
  • remove front panel set aside
dryer internals are exposed and easily repairable
examine back panel to ensure that nothing is detached from screw removal
assemble in reverse order

Note:
while the dryer is disassembled, examine felts rollers and glides for wear, most common cause of belt breakage, if there is any wear, replace.
examine fan, fan housing and ducting for lint that got past the filter screen.
