Electric dryer runs shuts off then starts again on its own


This could be a bunch of different things. #1 detach dryer vent and clean out. Try running dryer with vent not attached for 10 seconds. (Warning, lint and sand will likely come blasting out the back. Reattach and try. #2 Likely is that you have lint buildup inside. Unplug dryer. Remove back cover. Clean air path from exhaust through lint trap. Look inside or remove heater as well. You are likely overheating the dryer and the sensor is shutting it down. #3. Unplug the heating element and then run dryer. Does it shut off still? No Then the sensor on the heating element is bad. Yes then the timer is bad.

We have a Kenmore dryer series 90 model #11066904690 that we started spelling a burny smell. We took off front panel and vacumed out we tryed to use it again and same thing happed and then shut off...


This could be a couple of things. But more than likely the motor has burned out. It could be a wire has burned off, or even the timer has burned. Since you say it "shut off completely", I would have the power cord checked where it connects inside the dryer. UNPLUG it from the wall first! I have seen one wire burn off there from being a loose connection. There is a cover plate you can take off and look inside.
