Kenmore series 80 heats and turns fine but stops after 30 minutes or so at any heat setting


Does it restart after it cools down? If so your motor may be overheating and shutting down.

Kenmore 800 dryer shuts down after running down to 40 minutes on the timer. When I restart it at that point it runs for about 30 seconds and shuts down. If I turn the timer back to 90 minutes it runs down...


Sounds like you may have a bad motor. If the motor is overheating it will shut down on its overload.

If its a shorted contact in the timer you could mark the spot where it stops and restart it again. It should stop exactly at that point.

Kenmore dryer 90 series shuts off and then won't restart. the start button makes the normal noise when first pressed, but then makes no sound. the dryer restarted this morning and worked for a few loads,...


okay, you have a bad motor, this motor is caused by bad ventillation, instead of your lint going outside it is getting on your motor. i am sure your dryer was taking a long time to dry.


replace the motor and you will be fine.

Kenmore electric dryer shuts off after 5 minutes and won't restar


when you try to start it again do you hear a humming comeing from the motor? can you jump start it by turning the drum while holding the start button? If you say yes to these questions you have a bad motor.

90 series dryer won't stay on


UNplug the dryer, pull it out from the wall, and remove the service panel. Use a flashlight and look around for signs of anything having burned, and smell around to see if you can identify what might be burning if you can not visually see any burning.

If you plug the unit back in while your back there, have someone start the dryer and see if you can see what might be the problem.

I am suspect the motor may be failing, but it's hard to see what's happening through these teeny-tiny little wires.

Reply back what you seeing and we can help you further.

Kenmore Dryer 90 Series will start but suddenly stop...


Hello , Sounds like your motor is over heating , it will run until the sensor shuts it down from getting to hot , it is most likley because the motor is covered in lint and needs cleaned. Hope that helps.

Kenmore Dryer 90 Series will start but suddenly stop...


what starts and stops? the entire dryer or maybe the drum? Do you do anything to make it restart other than pushing the start button? This initially sounds like a temperature switch is opening and resetting after it cools. If you can describe the problem a little more in detail it would help.
