Question about Kenmore 63942 Dryer

1 Answer

My dryer keeps turning off.

The lint screen is clean, gas is on, no block in exhaust line, and heats up fine. when buzzer sounds i press the button and it comes right back on. WTF?
right now there's a book leaning on the button, only because i dont want to use duct tape.
so is it a bad timer, sensor or button?
please help, im poor and can only afford one repair

Dryer does not heat constantly. It starts to heat then turns off the gas. I need to dissamble it to test the parts.


Sounds like a block in the exhaust. Remove exhaust pipe and clean pipe. This is a huge fire hazard and your dryer is likely saving you from a fire. Remove large back panel on dryer. Clean all passages that handle airflow from lint screen back to exhaust. Restart. If this does not work, be happy that it is now clean :) The issue is likely your flame sensor at this point. Looks a bit like a spark plug. Short term fix. Clean probe with a dollar bill. Seriously, a dollar bill. Replace and restart. Order a new flame sensor.

Gas Dryer - takes to long to dry


Friend,
huuum At your service!

Sometimes this can happen when the vent line is clogged.


1. Check if the lint filter is full and needs to be cleaned.
Try this first.If the vent line is kinked or blocked
2. Then check if the outside screen covering the exhaust vent if this is even half blocked
with lint there will be no heat! This screen is to keep small animals out!
Try checking this and if it is clogged or the spring loaded door is stuck closed.
Try to clean the lint out of the corners of the flap door,
and or remove the screen permanently!
NO ANIMALS LIKE TO GET BURNT,IT'S HOT IN THAT TUBE!
Take the vent line off the rear of the dryer and try if it works. If it does you know it's the vent line and not the dryer that's the problem the dryer.





You will be fine

Sometimes this can happen when the vent line is clogged.

1. If the dryer is gas and old, the pilot could be out or if it is newer it could have a defective or worn out a igniter!

2. The lint filter is full and needs to be cleaned.Try this first
3. The outside screen covering the exhaust vent is even half blocked with lint there will be no heat! This screen is to keep small animals out! Try checking this second! if it is clogged or the spring loaded door is stuck closed try to clean the lint out of the corners of the flap door, and or remove the screen permanently!
