Question about Dryers

1 Answer

Doesn't run for the full amount of time.

I have a Kenmore dryer 110.66722691. My problem is that my dryer turns on and heats but for only 20-30 minutes. When I try to turn it on again, it makes a buzzing sound and won't run for about another hour or so. Please Help!!

My kenmore dryer model#110.61202013 wont heat up


ELECTRIC Dryer no heat or little heat, or shuts down to fast:

Check your venting and lint basket. Check blower for lint build up and blower wheel obstruction., test by trying to turn the wheel manually by hand (should be easy) May have to remove cabinet or front/back plate to get to it)

Next check the heating element itself with a meter for continuity OHMS CLOSED CIRCUIT. If not its defective.

Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage. 220 because if u only get half or 110 volts you will be able to run the machine which uses only 110 to run motor but not the heater which uses a full 220,

Check the thermal cut off, the cycling and the hi limit thermostats.
For continuity or OHMS. If no ohms or resistance they need replacement.

Lastly check your moister sensor. ( located inside the dryer door usually) Especially if machine seems to shut down early and clothes are still wet.
Test with a meter at room temperature and it should show continuity.
A failed moisture sensor will affect the dryer run time in the automatic moisture sensing cycle but it will not affect the heating

I have a Roper Electric dryer that will not heat up and will run through the cycles somtimes. I have ordered and replaced the heating element, thermal fuse, high limit and cycling thermostats. I have


First check the thermal fuse on the back of the filter housing.

Attached is a good troubleshooting video. I think that you will find that the Roper is the same as the Whirlpool and Kenmore
Note that the first thing that he does is to test the incoming voltage.
I suggest that you do this with the dryer running. I have seen breakers that will pass voltage without a load and as soon as a load is applied there is no voltage showing. As he says in the video the dryer can run on 110V as the motor is 110V however if it is missing the other leg of the 220V it can't heat. Another way that you could test this is to reverse the two incoming hot wires.

Good Luck.

Kenmore dryer 11062062100


If a dryer is not heating - and it is electric, then the first thing to check are the breakers. It runs on a double breaker and half of the breaker may be good (allowing for other functions other than heat). Half breaker will run motor and timer but the element needs both breakers (220v). If that is not the issue, then element may need to be inspected.

Dryer turns off after short period of time


It can be a lot of things. From the dryer elements getting to hot to the motor getting over heated. Try running it empty load to see if it shuts off. If it doesn't then it is the motor over heating.

How long is the burner heat cycle supposed to be for a 2007 kenmore dryer


"How long is the burner heat cycle supposed to be for a 2007 Kenmore dryer?"

That would depend on which dryer setting (permanent press, cottons, delicate, etc) you had it set on and the amount of time you had it set to dry. The time setting is really what determines how long the cycle will be. The other setting determines the amount of heat that will be needed for that selection..

Hope this helps ....

The dryer seems to be working but there is no heat . when i turn it on it turns for the set amount on time but it does not get warm or hot


GAS OR ELECTRIC, IF 220V ELECTRIC CHECK YOUR BREAKERS TURN THEM OFF THEN BACK ON.THE MOTOR WILL RUN IF ONE BREAKER IS BLOWN,OTHERWISE YOU MAY HAVE A BLOWN SENSOR OR HEATING ELEMENT.

For an electric dryer that runs but doesn’t heat, follow this repair roadmap:
Flip the circuit breaker off and then back on. Electric dryers run on a two-pole, 240v breaker. A common problem is for one of the legs to break which cuts the 240v that the elements need to heat up but it still supplies the 120v for the motor. The result is that the dryer runs but doesn’t heat.
If the breaker checks out, then it’s time to do some surgery. Unplug the dryer and open it up.
. Use your ohm meter to test the thermostats. All should show continuity.
Measure the resistance of the heating element with your ohm meter. Normal readings are in the neighborhood of 30 ohms.
In rare cases, the centrifugal switch in the motor can fail which breaks the power circuit for the heating elements. If this is the case, then the entire motor must be replaced since the centrifugal switch is built into the motor.
