Question about Kenmore 74602 Gas Dryer

1 Answer

3 yr old model purchased used, not heating up

I bought this a couple days ago, used. the dryer was delivered just after the owner's used it for the last time. they say it has never given them a problem. unfortunately for me, it is not heating up and the dryer is filling with gas... but the hookups are all in proper condition. the previous owners brought it to me in the back of a trailer with a tarp tied over it. could it have been damaged in the transport over here?

Re: 3 yr old model purchased used, not heating up

I would be concerned that when they disconnected gas flex from dryer, that the fitting on dryer turned with the pipe that goes into dryer and that it came undone.

My 2 yr old Maytag dryer took forever to heat up. called the repairman and I found out that when the company I bought the dryer from installed it they kinked the duct hose. Solenoid was replaced but burnt out since the duct when obtructed. You might want to pull the dryer out and check the hose.

Makes grinding noise especially when shutting down

a grinding noise in a dryer is usually due to a broken motor coupling. Not sure however since you didnt include a model number, brand or year the machine was purchased. If you own a somewhat older model (bought from 4-6 years ago) it is most likely the motor coupling however newer models can have some other problems and usually require a service tech to come and look at.

My Amana dryer model number LE7153WM does not heating

The thermal fuse and the heating element would be the likely suspects. Both can be checked with an ohm meter. If there is no continuity, it indicates a defective component. Neither is repairable and if either component is bad, it will have to be replaced. Hope this helped. Good luck.

The wheel has left handed threads. Use an impact wrench and an adjustable wrench to get it off or get a vice grips or pipe wrncha nd lock down the shaft then get a stick of wood or a hammer handle and shove it in between two fins at the 3 oclock position. Slam downwards on the wheel and it should pop loose.

Whirlpool Dryer wont spin

If it heats but doesnt spin, most likely the belt. May not be broke though. May have fallen off. Let me know if you need more help.
