Possible thermal limit fuse is defective. It is inside the dryer cabinet near the tumbler motor.

I have a kenmore dryer model #796.81172210 it continues to run until you open the door and will start up if you close it.is it the door sensor


The door switch is working correctly. The drum should turn off and the heater is switched off when the door has been opened and they restart when the door is closed. If you are saying the timer has run down so there is no time remaining and the drum is still turning then the timer is failing to switch off these items.

Dryer will not come on after setting timer and pushing start. No light when door is open.


Most likely the door switch is bad. Listen for a click when the door is just opened or closed. Noclick = bad door switch. The number you passed is NOT the model number. The model number will have 3 digits followed by a period and up to 8 more digiits after the period. i.e 110.xxxxyyyy or 110.Cxxx.yyy (examples only as it can be other numbers depending on the manufacturer.) There are other numbers starting with 417 and 665 also.
This is what I think your model number is: 11064672400

The door switch is item 41 below link: PN 3406107

This manual will help you:

The top has to be opened and the front panel taken lose and tipped out to change the door switch.
The manual is not straight forward as to the sequence of remofing things but you remove the top... open the toe panel loosen the lower front panel screws and then take out the 2 upper mounting screws for the front panel to gain acccess to the door switch. POWER OFF at the CB or dryer unplugged of course!

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

After my dryer runs for a few minutes, the door pops open and it stops running. What could be wrong? There is nothing stuck in the hinges; nothing was placed on the open dryer door to ruin it; the lint...


Hello Mom !

I never expected to see you on here, I thought you'd call, ha ha !

Anyway...by what you've described I'd suspect you have a weak/worn door latch & strike assembly. Also you can make sure it is closing properly when you push it closed, if it doesn't "click" it will push open from the force of the items inside tumbling against it.

You'll either want to call in a local servicer or replace it yourself with part # 279570. It is a relatively inexpensive part at around $15, but I do have to replace a lot of them.

I should add that is just the most common part number, to be sure please provide your complete model number when you call to order the part, look it up on-line, or post it here and I can confirm that is the correct part number.

Thanks for visitng "fixya" and good luck.

Please take a moment and rate this info accordingly or let me know if you require further assistance.

your son...I mean macmarkus :)

DRYER DOOR WILL NOT STAY CLOSED WHEN IN USE


Most likely the receptacle that the door latch goes into is broken. Go to local appliance parts dealer with model number and buy the $5 part, or order through Sears Parts Direct online.

Opened dryer door mid-cycle left open 1 hr. Dryer won't restart


there is a door switch on left upper corner of drier opening, make sure the little prong is clicking when you push it in. this turns the drier back on when the door is closed and the start button is pushed.

Need help with OLD dryer


IF YOU MEAN THAT THE DRYER STARTS BACK UP WHEN YOU CLOSE THE DOOR, THE PUSH TO START SWITCH IS SHORTED. CHECK TO SEE IF THE PUSH TO START BUTTON IS STUCK PRESSED IN AND NOT SPRINGING BACK OUT.
IF IT IS STUCK, TRY WD-40 TO LOOSTEN IT. OTHERWISE, REPLACE THE SWITCH.

IF THE DRYER KEEPS RUNNING WHEN YOU "OPEN" THE DOOR, THE DOOR SWITCH IS SHORTED. REPLACE THE DOOR SWITCH.

Signal


Kenmore 70 series. Model/Stock 66702692 Serial MG2402832

Cycle Signal works but then won't shut off until I open up the dryer door - it just keeps buzzing for hours. Also the dryer will turn on if I close the door ( and arrow is within a number and not on off) without pressing the start button. So if door is closed - the dryer will run or buzz (depending on arrow). How do I fix this?

Thank you

cutiepie, I've seen this many times on these dryers. You need to replace the door hinge. Not really a hard job to do. Post a model number (inside door) and we'll get you a part number...Catriver..post back.
