Question about Kenmore Dryers

1 Answer

Kenmore 13800 dryer - Has been working fine for several years. Was drying a pair of sneakers, alone, with some banging around in the dryer drum... and then the machine cut off. Plugged in, no fuse problems... suspect there is a reset button (?). Drum rotates freely, but on button does not start the machine, and resetting timer and heat level do not get any reset either.

How to assemble belt


Hello Denise, I have seen this problem many times. The sneakers by themselves in the dryer cause a shock effect , when the weight of the sneakers tumbling onto the drum overloads the skinny belt and the belt breaks every time. Usually. if you dry the sneakers along with other clothes or towels this will not happen.

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.

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!!
