Dryer keeps cutting off and has to be restarted.


There is normally a switch inside the motor that detects in turning at speed. That keeps the dryer running until it is either stopped, the door is opened, or the cycle is through. I am guessing that the contacts are getting bad on this switch.

Dryer does'nt run. checked breaker, thermal fuse, starter relay, timer stops when door is opened, starts when closed?


2 more things could be wrong,check the blower box to see if you have a thermister thermostat on it,check that with your omns meter,the other thing is the motor is no longer strong enough to turn the drum and it heat up and tips off,let me know what you find-mike

Dryer keeps running and timer continues to move around dial.


Change your timer. It has a malfunction in it. it's about a 100 dollar fix. Also your start switch may be bad.

Dryer won't stop running


The hot wire runs through the start button as a bridge to complete the circuit until the motor centrifigal switch closes the circuit when running. Now if you manually start your dryer and the timer doesnt advance keeping the dryer on until you open the door or advance the timer manually then the timer is good but the motor to advance the cam is faulted. The second scenario is that the dryer is off when the door is open, but when you close the door the dryer starts. With the second scenario we have a closed circuit at all times. At this point you have either a stuck start button or the centrifigal switch is closed. Usually it is the start button on this model.

Clothes Dryer will not stop or be quiet


On some Kenmore which is made by whirlpool, there is a resistor connected to the timer control. when the machine is off can you listen to the timer switch and hear it running, making a clock ticking sound? If so, you need a new resistor. Being a dryer, when you open the door and it stops the button needs to be reset before it starts again, right? So I wouldnt be looking at the door switch as much as the start button. It may be the evil one.
