Question about Dryers

1 Answer

I have a Kenmore electric dryer and it is giving me intermittent heating....every 30 seconds or so, it only blows cold air, then hot, then cold, intermittently. I replaced 2 parts from repairclinic.com - the #2893 and the #940740. What else can I do? The model # is 110.72822101.

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....

If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

check out this electric no heat tip...

OUR KENMORE DRYER BLOWS OUT COLD AIR


It's most likely a thermal fuse if it's a gas dryer. very easy to install. If your dryer is electric, it's either the thermal cut-off or the heating element itself. If you need help with anything, please feel free to e-mail me. good luck :)

Check your heat sensors, one or more must be OPEN.

Dryer will run for a second and sound three beeps and stops.


Sounds like the door switch has gone bad., but your description is confusing.

First, it takes a few minutes for you to feel the air blowing hot, particularly when the dryer is in a cold garage. The heating elements have to heat up the mass of the metal, and any clothes in the dryer.

The timer design is such that it can not speed up (the motor inside wont start running faster, due to it's electrical design.).

I am suspect that the door switch has failed for some reason, because reading between the lines, I think you are saying when you release the Start button, the dryer quits operating. If the door switch is bad, then it will cause that condition to happen.

Dryer blows cold air but no heat


The heating element is in the back of the dryer. Sometimes there is a small access panel that will allow you to check the terminals to the heating element. You will need an ohm meter or multimeter to check.

Hi,
I am not sure why.
But I will tell you that at only 5 years old you should repair it.
This is a fine machine!
