Kenmore Electric Dryer Model 110.6972110 timer motor NG


hi,

maybe call a generic appiance store other than sears, try maytag store. the knob pulls staight off and the timer nut is below. then take off the back cover off the control panel, sometimes those screws are on the front corners, sometimes hidden. take a picture of the timer wiring and tape and label all the wires before you remove it. unplug it first!!

Dryer will not come on at all. working fine on last load


check house fuse/circuit breaker
door switch
if an electric dryer the thermal fuse as they are often wired into the motor run circuit
check for power to the motor in start and run circuit, if present motors spent.
if not present trace back to timer and verify timer is sending power, if not timers spent.
more likely circuit breaker, door switch or thermal fuse if electric dryer..
hope this helps,
best of luck,

Dryer will run for a second and sound three beeps and stops.


Sounds like the door switch has gone bad., but your description is confusing.

First, it takes a few minutes for you to feel the air blowing hot, particularly when the dryer is in a cold garage. The heating elements have to heat up the mass of the metal, and any clothes in the dryer.

The timer design is such that it can not speed up (the motor inside wont start running faster, due to it's electrical design.).

I am suspect that the door switch has failed for some reason, because reading between the lines, I think you are saying when you release the Start button, the dryer quits operating. If the door switch is bad, then it will cause that condition to happen.

The drum of my Kenmore 80 series electric dryer is not turning


sounds like you need a new drum belt. start by taking the top off then the front panel will have screws inside for removing the front. then once the front is off you will see the motor and where the belt should be. if the belt is broken, replace it, if not just put it back on the motor and idler pulley.

Electric Dryer


When you first start out with a cold dryer the dryer runs fine, then when you start a second load if wont?

It sounds like you motor is overheating, Your dryer probably needs to be cleaned, taken apart and all of the lint build up around motor removed. also so clean the venting and weather hood outside.

Kenmore Electric Dryer..Timer runs backwards only sometimes.


Probablyl the timer motor. Synchonosous motors that run these timers have a internal part that insure they always start the same direction.
