    If it is winter, the air flow safety switch might be frozen by air entering the exhaust tube from outside. To check, disconnect the exhaust hose and use a heat gun to backfeed hot air into the burner manifold. This should thaw the switch vane if it is hindered by frost or ice/snow entering from the outside or left over from the last drying cycle. Note if the exhaust hose is plastic you have to use low heat on the heat gun to prevent meling the hose.

    I am sorry but that # is not coming up. Did you get it off the cabinet around the door opening? If there is a panel on the back that you canremove. You wil find the fuse there. If there isn't a panel in the back, you will need to remove the front lower panel. I want to help so let me know.

    THis shows you need to remove the back panel. The fuse is located on the blower housing. It is /4" wide about 3" long and it is white. Test it for continuity. If it has none, replace it. This help?

Kenmore 70 Series Dryer not heating and not cutting off

I had an identical problem to yours this weekend with my Kenmore dryer. There were 2 problems.

1. Timer was broken. Does not advance to "OFF" position on timed dry, however it still works for auto-dry.

2. Thermal fuse was blown. Upon replacing, dryer heated up normally.

I believe when the timer broke, the dryer had kept running and blew the thermal fuse. On Sears' website, thermal fuse is $5.30, timer is roughly $80.

80 series kenmore that doesnt spin anymore. It sounded like a motor was running but but the basket wasnt turning,not sure how to get to the belt to see if its i cant even hear the motor.

There is a small rubber gizmo between the motor and transmission, that transmits power bewteen the two, Looks kinda like a four leaf clover in a wierd sort of way. Its broken. They don't cost much.

Kenmore Series 80 Washer timer knob spins

Something in the timer came apart. Timer needs replaced. When in good working order, the timer should ONLY ever be turned clockwise..Reversing this could break it.
