Question about Kenmore 64852 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Removing the back of the dryer

I have a kenmore 80 series dryer. Model 110.76862501. We think the belt is broken.
I was drying a pair of sneakers and I heard a clanking sound and the dryer shut off. I started it again and it did the same thing. I tried manualy spinning the drum and we heard a loud BANG! We removed the top and the back panel but do not know how to remove anything else in back. The thin belt that goes accross the drum is very loose. What can we do? A diagram of how to remove everything to access the belt would be great.

To get at belt you will need to get true the front of dryer.When you have top up there should be 2 screws on both inside corners on front panel remove them and lift up and towards you the front panel should come off.After that look under drum .Sounds like your belt sliped off the idler pully you can then put belt back on and reverse the steps.If any more help needed feel free to ask hope i fixya:)

I have a Kenmore 110.63032102 dryer and I put a pair of sneakers in it. It shut off and now it wont even turn on. What's wrong?


Drying a pair of sneakers causes the dryer to overheat and this causes the thermal fuse to blow. The thermal fuse is wired in series with the motor circuit and if it blows, power to the motor is terminated causing the dryer not to turn on. Disconnect power then Pry the lower access panel off with a flat-head screwdriver as shown.

Remove the hex-head screw from the lint duct bracket and remove the bracket. Remove the two hex-head screws from the lint duct and remove the duct to expose the thermal fuse on the blower housing.

Bypass the thermal fuse by disconnecting the wires and connecting them together. Insulate them properly and plug the dryer back in. The thermal fuse is indeed blown and needs to be replaced if the dryer starts. Do not use the dryer with the thermal fuse bypassed due to fire hazards. Let us know if you need further advice.

Kenmore 80 series dryer. was working fine, now


Hello. When ever a dryer will not turn the first thing to suspect is a broken dryer belt. lift the top on your machine and visually inspect the belt. If it is broken, it is easy to replace. Joe

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.

I was drying a pair of sneakers and the drum stopped turning and won't turn after several attempts to re-start the dryer.


What happened is the belt came off. Don\'t panic! I can help. Unplug the dryer and pt it on a tailgate. You gotta oil the rollers and clean out the lint so get it somewhere you can **** dat puppy. You gotta yank out the filter and remove those 2 screws on top the filter housing. Then use a putty knife to pop the top. Yank up on the front (after removing screws) and get it out yer way. I have here an old school manual and some repair pics babe. with any luck you should have this bad baby up and running!!

The drum of my Kenmore 80 series electric dryer is not turning


sounds like you need a new drum belt. start by taking the top off then the front panel will have screws inside for removing the front. then once the front is off you will see the motor and where the belt should be. if the belt is broken, replace it, if not just put it back on the motor and idler pulley.

Broken Kenmore dryer 80 series


Hi Dave. The problem is the drive belt. They aren't that difficult to replace and can be done with just a few tools. I'll need the exact model number off of the dryer to explain how to gain access to it, though. The number can be found behind the door on the cabinet (it'll start with 3 digits then a decimal point then more digits, like this; xxx.xxxxxxx)

The part number for the repair is 4392065. This is a complete maintenance kit for your dryer. I recommend it because since your belt wore out, there are other parts that should be taken care of at the same time. Here's a picture and a place to order if you can't find it locally.

My Kenmore 80 series dryer (64852) develops a buzzing sound while drying. Functionally it works just fine. However, after about 20min (this varies) of run time the dryer will usually begin to buzz. The buzzing seems to come and go for a short while and then becomes more constant. Then about 10min (give or take) before the dryer shuts off, the buzzing usually stops. It doesn't seem to matter what setting the dryer in on. (e.g. "Timed Dry", "Automatic Moisture Sensing") Often times when the dryer begins buzzing I can turn the dial back a bit and the buzzing usually stop for a short time. But it seems to pick up with the buzzing again before the dial reaches the same point where it began the first time. Also, because the buzzing remains fairly constant, and I get the impression that the thermostat is cycling things off and on like it should, I don't really think that this is an issue related to the heating element. Although I've been known to be wrong before. As far as I can tell it does have something to do with heat though, because the buzzing only seems to start after the machine has had time to run and warm up for a while and then stops during the last 10min when I assume the machine would be cooling down. Also, I keep the "End of Cycle Signal" in the OFF position all the time. When I have turned it on in the past it sounds distinctly different from the noise it make while drying. One more thing. The buzzing doesn't sound like vibrating parts to me. Thanks for any help you can give.
