Question about Kenmore Dryers

1 Answer

It will not automatically turn off when running, the knob does not turn while running.

Hello, I have a Kenmore dryer and need some help. Everything works just fine, but for the knob that will shut the dryer off once it hits the end portion. It will turn fine, but it will not automatically shut off. The knob does not turn while its going so the dryer does not know when to turn off. Can you help me please? Thanks Stephanie

Miss Stephanie you must replace the timer.
If you have a timed dry setting. Run timed dry. If it does not shut off timer is bad.
If it does shut off you have a sensor problem.

Dryer automatically starts when the door is shut


Hello there:
This may not be just a timer issue this could be the door switch that is not operating correctly if this switch fails they will fail in the run position meaning the unit will want to run automatically when the door is closed
so what you are going to want to do is to try to remove the door switch and see if the dryer now runs if not there is the problem simply get a new one and reinstall it now if it is the timer you will have to remove the back panel the panel behind the knobs in the back it should have 8 screws
now after it is removed locate the timer it should be the one that controles the different time settings on the dryer. simply remopve the wires attached to it and mark them so you know where they go and get a new one and install and replace the wires and test if all is good than put the back cover back on ok
Hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards MIchael

Kenmore 70 series dryer control/timer knob doesn't turn when running


THE TIMER HAS A SMALL DRIVE MOTOR THAT TURNS THE TIMER AT DIFFERENT SPEEDS FOR DIFFERENT CYCLES AND VARIES FROM BRAND TO BRAND BUT EITHER WAY YOU MUST REPLACE THE TIMER , EXPENSIVE FIX IF THE DRYER IS WORTH IT THAT SHOULD TAKE CARE OF THE PROBLEM
