Check the door switch. A little lever sticking down through top right ofdoor opening. If it is not there you will need new door switch(sometimesthe little lever breaks off). If it is there and does not click when youpress it in you need a new door switch. if it clicks when youclose the door then you have a bad thermal fuse.The thermal fuse isfound by taking the back of the dryer off. The fuse is an oblong whiteplastic piece with 2 wires attached.

Door switch part number 3406109
Thermal fuse part number 3392519

Washer stopped mid cycle


Your timer is off and should be tossed and replaced. It's burnt out and can be replaced. Sears and Lowes carry appliance parts, you can order it and install it yourself. It's relatively simple and can be replaced in little time.

Dryer stops mid cycle-restarts when cooled down--is it some sensor?


Good day,
Yes it's a sensor, but if you have to restart it manually after the cool down period, it is the sensor built into the motor.
That sensor measures motor temperature and current draw. It locks out the motor until it reaches normal temperature.

If it restarts on it's own, then post back with the complete model number. It would be a different problem.

Sears 18'' Model 358.351081


I think jerr is right about a plugged fuel vent but not all are in the fuel cap. Start it, if necessary lay it on its side and loosen the fuel cap. If it continues to run it is a plugged vent. Contact Sears determine the Poulan model number and we can help you find an illustration of your fuel system. HTH

Dryer stopped working mid-cycle.


I presume she pushed the start button again. Can you hear the motor running? If so, it's a broken belt. The door switch can fail anytime. If the dryer started ok later, the motor was overheated. Lighter loads will avoid a lot of problems, and the dryer will probably work better.

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.
