Question about Kenmore 73952 Gas Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer runs then stops after short periods (5-10 mins)

My problem is that the dryer will start heat and tumble as usual, but after about 5-10 minutes depending upon the load will shut off. 10min to 30 min later It will start again and go thru the same cycle, run and stop

THere maybe a thermal limit sensor gone bad. Keeps the dryer from over-heating. Located behind rear panel on most and mounted on the heat tube. Verify with volt/ohm meter if possible

Dryer stops tumbling, but heating element stays on


Usually when an electric dryer overheats it's because of a defective cycling thermostat or a clogged vent system. Clean any lint from the internal and external ductwork, and/or replace the cycling thermostat

Dryer is tumbling but no heat - when I reset it shuts off after about 10 min and the Drying, Cool Down, and Extended Tumble lights are all flashing.


Janet McDonald,

I understand that you are having trouble with your dryer not heating and not running a full cycle and shutting off with the Drying, Cool Down, and Extended Tumble lights flashing. What I suggest is to give your appliance a hard reset. You will do this by either unplugging it or cutting the power off at the circuit breaker for 3-5 minutes. After the 3-5 minutes, bring power back and try to start a cycle. If it does not complete the cycle and shuts off with the lights flashing, I suggest to either contact the manufacturer or a local appliance technician. This way you will be able to locate the cause of this issue and have it resolved.

-Best Regards-

Roper elec dryer starts and runs for 10 sec then stops runnning


Hi

If the dryer is not drying the clothes then you would need to check for the following things-

1. Inspect the fuses and circuit breakers they may have burned out or tripped. Usually, dryer will still tumble but not create heat if a fuse or a circuit breaker is not working.
2. Check for the amp reading at 240 V, it should have reading of 24, 21 and 3 amp (approx.) for 2 lines and neutral respectively.
3. Heating element may have turned or the connection to the element might be loose. Sometimes a shorted circuit element will keep on blowing the fuse or circuit breaker.
4. Motor wiring shorting to ground.

Hope this helps...

Dryer will not stop running


Your machine may have a feature called wrinkle guard or wrinkle shield, which basically keeps tumbling the clothes without heat to prevent wrinkles from setting in. Turn that feature off and see if that does the trick.

Maytag atlantis gas dryer, will start, heat up but then no heat


Try running it with the vent disconnected and feel the air coming out of the dryer. It should have good flow. If it dries good, your pipe may be clogged.

Kenmore dryer


Okay, the little white thingy you mention is the thermal fuse. If it were to blow, the dryer would not run at all. They usually blow like a fuse and require replacement, however, I have experienced on one occasion where the dryer would shut down in the manner you mention, and it was caused by a thermal fuse that was tripping off. I couldn't explain it, but I replaced it and the dryer worked fine after that. That could very well be a possiblity. Normally, problems like this are caused by the operating thermostat going bad. That the other thingy thats mounted next to the thermal fuse. The link I sent you should have information on how to check them. The heating element should not be considered a problem at this point. It would not cause the dryer to shut down if it were to fail. Your symptom would be a dryer that runs, but does not heat. Let em know if you have further questions.
