Question about Dryers

1 Answer

I have a similar problem. I replaced the drum belt and when putting everything back together I shorted out the door switch. It sparked but nothing seemed to have been damaged. The dryer runs fine BUT it will not automatically shut off. The dial simply continues on past the "off" position and keeps on going... forever. The cycles work the way they should.The air is just air, the heat cycle works too. The dryer keeps on running through all the cycles. The only way it stops is to open the door.

Pretty rare but the contacts on the timer unit could have fused together.

SOURCE: Dryer won't stop running - Second try

The push-to-start switch is the easiest and cheapest to replace. You can check it by starting the machine then, unplug it, remove one of the wires from the switch, then plug dryer back up. Dryer should not start. If your model has an even heat board and two relays under the console, your problem could be with them if switch is not bad. Reply back if you need to know how to check them.

SOURCE: 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.

I replaced the Drive belt and two front drum wheels put everything back together and not it goes to start but doesn't click on. Also is the drive belt supposed to sit on the drum very loosely?


the belt is not installed correctly,, some dryers have a switch that shuts the motor and heat off if the belt breaks,, if it is not on the right way it will act like the belt is broke,, double check the belt routing, it should be tight

My dryer won't run but it still has power to the controls.


Make sure there is 230 volts at the terminal block on the back of the dryer from red to black. If there is 120 volts from the red wire to ground and the black wire to ground but nothing between red and black the dryer is not getting 230 volts. This indicates a tripped breaker. If there is 230 volts from red to black and the drum light is not coming on, I would suspect a defective door switch. If the door switch fails the dryer won't run. This switch can be manually checked. First disconnect the power from the dryer. Now pop out the door switch and connect the yellow and brown/yellow wires together (make sure they are not touching anything). Now plug the unit back in and press the start switch. If the unit runs replace the door switch.

Do not know hoe to get into the dryer to replace the drum belt


unplug the dryer,open the door and take out the two phillips screws holding the door on and remove the other two screws opposite the door screws.remove the door and pull the front of dryer off.now remove the two top 5/16 inch screws and metal Lbrackets,down below them you'll see i think on the right side a screw that's in a hole or in a cutout,those screws are short and the one below it is a long screw on the bottom,don't take out anymore screws than that,on the other side the long screw is on top and the short screw is on the bottom and don't take out anymore screws than that or the bulkhead will separate on you,now pull the bulkhead off and you can replace the belt,when putting it back together just remember the short screws go into the cutout holes and the long screws go in the holes without the cutout.one more thing when you put the bulkhead back on make sure the felt isn't sticking out into the drum opening,if it is use a screw driver and push the felt in with it and push up at the same time and the felt will get pushed back up and behind the drum,run your finger around the drum and you'll be able to feel if the felt is sticking out

Change drier belt on model number 41794702300 Kenmore stackable


1. UNPLUG UNIT. 2. On the front of the unit, remove two screws from the bottom panel. Remove it and you will see two screws holding the top panel and door in place. 3. Remove the screws and gently pull up and out on the door panel, INSURE NOT TO PULL ON THE WIRES LEADING TO THE DOOR SWITCH. 4. Remove wires from door switch. MAKE SURE TO NOTE WHICH WIRES CONNECT TO WHICH TAB. 5. Set door aside and you will have complete access to drum. Remove old belt, if necessary, noting now it is around the drum and weaved through or around the tension bar below the drum. 6. Once removed, or if there is no belt, or a broken belt, put the new belt around the drum so that the slack hangs below the drum. NOTE: You will probably see a black mark around the drum where the belt has laid, about in the middle of the drum. Lay the belt on that path. 6A. Lay on your back with both hands available, raise drum slightly to get access to the belt. Take slack in belt, raise tension bar slightly out of the way, bring belt UNDER the pulley on tension bar and put it around the pulley/spindle on the motor. (This may take another hand) Slowly lower tension bar back down to make contact with belt, applying tension to belt. 7. Get the door panel and reconnect the door switch. 8. Start to put door panel in place, while slightly raising drum to fit into position, careful to the raise to high or **** drum out of position off the back rollers or cause belt to slip off. Push door panel into place and put screws in. 9. Once you've got the door secure, test the belt by reaching inside and manually turning the drum clockwise until it seems to turn easily with not bumps. This is allowing the belt to settle into place and insuring it is not going to pop off; if it does, repeat the operation. If it turns easily, move on to... 10. Replace lower panel. 11. Plug in unit and test to insure drum moves freely. If not, you may need to readjust the way the door panel fits in place with the drum, or the belt on the tension bar. 12. If you need further help, please let me know.
Good luck. It's simpler than it sounds. G

Belt broken on LEC8858Eq0 need instructions on how to replace belt and pulley.


To open the dryer, remove screws under the lint filter door/ handle. Pull top towards you and lift on front, top should pop up and rotate back. There will be two sheet metal screws one on either side of the front door panel, remove them and pull front out and clear of the drum, an extra hand can really help with this. Lift on t he door panel and either disconnect the door switch connector or just turn it out of the way. Look under the drum, if the idler pulley does not have a roller on it, you should replace it. If it does have a roller, check for signs of wear and seizing, only then should that one be replaced. While you're in there it is always a good idea to clean out the lint and check the drum rollers. When putting back together, the drum may cause a problem seating on the front door seal. you may need to rotate the drum back and forth to work it into position.
