Question about Kenmore 72062 Gas Dryer

Kenmore 110.8669480 stock #66948

Hello. I actually can not find the manual for my Kenmore Limited Edition Dryer in all your manuals. The stock #is 66948. The problem I'am having is this: When I push the start button on the dryer, it comes on for about 3 seconds and than turns itself off. I then get a PF (power failure???) blinking on the digital screen. I have unplugged it and that didn't help. I have turned off/on the circuit breaker and that didn't help. I know there is power to it but the PF keeps coming up on the screen. I could see this happening if the dryer gets to hot. But this is not the case since I haven't even started a load. It's cold. HELP, HELP, HELP..... Also, could you tell me where to go to get the manual for this dryer. I also need the manual for the matching washer that I have. Thanks so much for any help you can give me.

Sears should be able to get you the manual... I would check and make sure your getting the full 220 to the back of the dryer... check where the cord hooks right to the dryer... thats the only way you'll Know for sure you got the full 22ov to the dryer. You need some kind of volt meter that checks for 220v to test it. Need to check the 2 hot line wires. usally red and black and get 220 most anything else can be a false reading

Double check your model number on your dryer. I think you may be reading a stock number as opposed to a model number. The tag for the actual model number should be located just inside the door (on the opening not the door).
When you find it go to the manufacturer's web site at
Good luck!!

Kenmore Dryer vent was plugged no heat now


No there is no manual reset on those dryer`s however, The most likely problem based on your description is the thermal fuse.

The thermal fuse is either located at the front or the back depending on the model number, but in any case it will be located on the exhaust housing and look`s like a small disc or thin pin shape ( see image below ) with 2 wires going to it and white in color.

I need the installation manual for a Kenmore Elite Oasis gas dryer. Specifically I need to know what water line attaches to the dryer (for steam), the hot or the cold?

Hello, Here's the link to view the owners manual and exploded view of the parts for your model. Once there, click on the exact model # you have (it's listed on your dryer's data plate) so you get the right one.

Need the manual to understand operation, problems with drying


84052/94052 is the stock number and 417.94052500 is the actual model number

How long did you let it run on sensor? Some models may need to sense for a while before they decide to start heating.

The knob can be turned either way

Dryer wont spin

Take the back off  of the drier after unplugging and the beklt goes from the motor pully all the way around outside of the the drum.You can't miss it. Most of the Kenmore drier belts are the same. WE have apliance repair parts stores locally.If you also do , go to the store with the old belt and match it up.
