Question about Whirlpool LEB6300 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

How old is this dryer?

The dryer looks pretty new, but not sure of it's age. I also got the washer LSB6300. I assume they are both about the same age they were originally bought as a pair.

What year was Kenmore dryer 110.66112500 made

You can go to the following website and enter the info requested at the bottom of the page and it will give you the date of the dryer. You will need both your model & serial numbers. The manufacturers do recycle their model numbers about every 11 or 12 years, so you may get a range of dates.

One thing that you can check, look at the exhaust hose coming out of the back and make sure that it is not kinked in any way and if you can, pull the dryer out and make sure that the hose is clear of any blockage. Usually when you have longer drying times it caused by poor air flow.

The thought that comes to mind is, there are some coins,nails or screws rattling about in the machine. I have not emptied all pockets. It would be wise to take a look at the troubleshooting ages in the manual. Kolbrun

We have an older dryer (ultimate care - super plus capacity) 12+ years old. It no longer "heats". Drum is still turning. I am assuming it is a thermostat - how much do those cost to repair?...

When it doesn't heat it could range from the timer to the heat element to the thermostat or even the motor so it could be as little as $125-350 to repair.

Our 8 year old kenmore dryer won't do anything when you press the start button. We don't hear even a hum. It worked one day and then just wouldn't start the next day. We checked the fuse box...

Here is a good link for basic troubleshooting... But 10 to one the culprit is a thermal fuse or thermal cut off.... they are usually pretty cheap and easy to replace....

One final note on these: if you find your thermal fuse\cut off (or element) open, before replacing it, be sure to check the airflow out your dryer's vent system. Even though these devices do 'wear out' with age, poor airflow's the #1 cause of failure of these devices, and if your vent's partially clogged, a new thermal won't last very long, but will do its job again, and leave you 'cold' (a new element won't last long if the vent's clogged, either).

I have an indesit widxl146 washer drier and the machine takes an age to dry clothes, 9 hours as oppose to 2 hours when new

9 Hours!!! I hope it isn't because the clothes are too wet because if it is I wouldn't like your electricity bill!!
There are a number of things you need to check.
I assume that you are not overloading the machine, and that you are using the correct spin cycle
Don't start the drying cycle directly after the wash, take out the clothes and see how dry they are after the wash, you need to ascertain if it is spinning the load sufficiently fast to dry them. How dry are they directly after the spin? If they are not wetter than they should be then the dryer is not getting hot enough during the drying cycle, this could be due to a faulty thermostat or element.
Make sure all the filters are clean including the pre chamber down below so that it can pump out the water (I guess it must be clear if it is washing ok? but check anyway.
The principal parts involved, assuming that
Also check that you haven't got a delay set for the dryer (unlikely I know but I thought I would mention it anyway)
I hope that helps.

Kenmore washer dryer age?

The age is determined by the SERIAL number. If you post back with each appliance serial number, I can tell you what year they were manufactured. Include any letter designations that are in the serial number too.

Thermal cut-out keeps cutting out so dryer isn't drying threr must be a blockage some where but dont know where empty the blockage can you help me? its a teka washer dryer

It's always a good idea to replace both the thermal fuse AND safety thermostat when the fuse is found open. In fact, most manufacturers supply these in kits that include both parts. The thinking is, if the thermal's blown, it's a pretty fair bet that the safety tstat's been doing a LOT of cycling, and is most likely really stressed.

There is an obvious problem with your dryer (or venting) if this problem continues to happen.

One final note on these: if you find your thermal fuse (or element) open, before replacing it, be sure to check the airflow out your dryer’s vent system. Even though these devices do ‘wear out’ with age, poor airflow’s the #1 cause of failure of these devices, and if your vent’s partially clogged, a new thermal won’t last very long, but will do its job again, and leave you ’cold’ (a new element won't last long if the vent's clogged, either).

To check for blockage - remove the dryer vent right where it exits the machine. Inspect inside the vent tube, and the exhaust tube.

My Kenmore Dryer turns on and then goes off on it's own

by the time you purchase a part it would be almost half of what a new one would cost. Check for any clogs that may be in a drain and try playing with the dryer door latch. These things could also cause this problem. But a 12 year old washer could just be a motor wearing out from age.

I think you've got your bases pretty well covered. I don't see a reason for you to replace the hi-limit as well. At less than an ohm, I see no reason to bother with it.
