    Can you clarify the smell for me? Example: Burning cotton, nylon, rubber, plastic, paper, etc. If it shut off completly, I would suspect a contaminant combusted in the heating chamber causing the overheat switch or high heat thermal fuse to open circuit the system to avoid severe damage, fire, etc.

This could be a couple of things. But more than likely the motor has burned out. It could be a wire has burned off, or even the timer has burned. Since you say it "shut off completely", I would have the power cord checked where it connects inside the dryer. UNPLUG it from the wall first! I have seen one wire burn off there from being a loose connection. There is a cover plate you can take off and look inside.

Where to find fuses. My dryer is not heating up.


Does your dryer have power? If yes, then check (1) the flow of air outside the house from your dryer tube and (2) your circuit breaker panel for each circuit in the house (I've not seen fuses/breakers built into dryers -- though that could change). Then check (3) your heating element, (4) thermostat, (5) high-temp thermal cutoff switch, and (6) for debris in the air flow path to / from from the centrifugal fan.

Kenmore 90 Series, 10 years old; Dryer was making funny noise and stopped in the middle of a cycle. There was a burnt smell when it stopped. Cannot turn drum manually either. What are possibilities?


OF COURSE SOMETHING BURNT INSIDE THE SYSTEM. YOUR MOTOR MIGHT BE BURNT. 90 SERIES, YOU MUST HAVE THE LINT FILTER ON TOP CORRECT? TAKE FILTER OUT, UNSCREWS THE TWO SCREWS, PULL TOP PANEL TOWARDS YOU AND LIFT UP. DISCONNECT LID SWITCH CONNECTOR, UNSCREW TWO SCREWS HOLDING FRONT PANEL ON, REMOVE FRONT PANEL, TAKE DRUM OUT AND CHECK THE UNIT. GOOD LUCK

I need to get to the thermal fuse in my Kenmore 90 Series electric dryer model # 110.66902690. I took off the bottom front panel and can't find it...I'm really not even sure what it is I'm supposed to be...


ok the heater is on the right side of the unit standing from the front the thermal fuse is located behind the thermastat should be round black objects that have to wires going to them it is recommend that if you have a bad thermal fuse you replace your thermostat wich is the bigger round plastic also might want to check your vent out of the house for a restiction

My Kenmore Series 90 dryer won't run as it appears the door does not hit the actuator. It would appear either the door has moved to a lower position or the actuator has moved up into the dryer. May I ask...


The door switch or actuator is broken. A common problem. On most Kenmore dryers this is replace by lifting the top. Since you haven't given the whole model number I will discuss raising the top on the most common model.

If your model has a lint filter at the top the slide show below should show you how to raise the top.

Kenmore Dryer

Disconnect power to unit. Lift the cover from the lint filter or if yours is the one with a filter and cover together, remove the whole filter. You will see 2 screws under the cover/filter, remove them. Now, you will need a putty knife or a thin shafted straight screw driver to remove the top panel. Push the putty knife or screw driver to "pop" the front top clips. The top panel will hinge back towards the wall and can be left there. Just inside the top of the front panel, you will see 2 screws, remove them. You will see the wires for the door switch on the right side. *** the top of the front panel toward you to gain access to the switch for replacement.

Reverse process for reassembly. Good Luck

heating element is located at the back of the dryer. if you can see a big coil of wires like a long spring laid back and fort to a duct , that is the heating element.
