Question about Kenmore 62802 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer just quit

I have a Kenmore 90 series that stopped working.  Was working fine in the morning.  Went to dry again later in the day and when I pressed start button, it made one sound and died.


I opened the grey panel at back, but see no fuse.  Where is the reset switch?

Re: Dryer just quit

There is no reset switch and there is no fuse inside the console.  I posted comments to your solution under the premium problem section.  I believe you could have a bad thermal fuse which is located in the rear of the dryer.  I left instructions for you to follow.  Let me know if you need further assistance.

Dryer stops but the timer continues on

Fixed! The "push to start" button was stuck. Must have been some dust. I pushed the knob a few times and that's all it took. Works fine now.

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 90 plus series dryer won't work

Sounds like the belt has broken. You could probably also use new drum support rollers. Check out this site which shows how to change a dryer belt:

It's not a difficult job if you're comfortable working with hand tools.

Kenmore electric dryer series 90 model 66904691 will not start. Dryed a load of clothes went to start again will not do anything , checked fuse box, fuse not blown what could be the problem

Check the automatic door shut off switch and wiring. When the door closes it actuates a switch (completes and electrical circuit) which allows the dryer to operate.
