Re: kenmore dryer

That happens to mine when i overload it and the clothes push against the door and open it imperceptibly -- but,evidently, just enough to shut it off.

Why does dryer start run a little beep 3 times cut off

Really you need to provide your model number. but that said... the number one cause of a dryer shutting down after a short warm-up is a blocked exhaust outlet. Dryers have a sensor that checks the exhaust temperature... if its not moving the hot air out side than it over heats and trips the sensor which will shut off the dryer for safety (no fires please!!). So check your exhaust outlet outside for lint blockage... check your exhaust hose/pipe for kinks where lint can build up and of course always check the lint screen for blockage.

LG Tromm DLE8377NM check filter but filter is clean

You say lint hose is disconnected. Are you referring to the exhaust vent to the outside? I would suspect this vent is clogged or a vent flapper outside may be stuck shut.

I have a kenmore dryer 80 series it only makes a lite sound when I push the start button. I won't come on. The power is good.

The Kenmore 80 Series of dryers are consumer grade dryers for home use. As with most home appliances, the Kenmore 80 series dryers will occasionally not work as intended. If a problem occurs with your dryer, however, you do not necessarily need it serviced by a technician. You can attempt to troubleshoot and fix any problems with your dryer before contacting a technician.

  1. Kenmore 80 Series dryers may not run for several reasons. First, make sure that the power cord is plugged into a working power outlet. You may need to plug a different device into the outlet to check that it is receiving power. If the second device does not run on the power outlet, you may have blown a fuse or tripped a circuit breaker. Check your fuse box or circuit breaker box and make the change as needed.
    Next, make sure that the dryer door is fully shut. The dryer will not run with the door ajar.
    Finally, check that the "Start" button was fully pressed and that a cycle was chosen on the machine. If you do not choose a cycle for the dryer, it will not run.
  2. If your Kenmore 80 Series dryer does not heat up during use, check that a heat cycle has been chosen for the load. There are several different dryer cycles you can choose, some of which do not use heat. Make sure that you have chosen a heated cycle.
    As above, check that you have not blown a fuse or tripped a circuit breaker. The dryer may use more than one fuse or breaker: one is used to power the drum, and the other for the heating element. Make sure that both fuses or breakers are in working order.
  3. There may be times when Kenmore Series 80 dryers do not fully dry your clothes. When this occurs, check the lint screen and clear out any lint. The air may not flow as well if the lint screen is clogged.
    Next, check to see if the exhaust vent is clogged. Lint and other particles may clog the exhaust vent over time, restricting air flow and making it more difficult to dry your clothes. To check the vent, run the dryer and hold your hand under the vent. If you do not feel any air flow, clean or replace the vent.
    If you used cold water to rinse the clothes it may take longer than normal to dry. The same is true if the load of laundry is very wet or is filled with items that are very absorbent.
    Finally, check the load size. The more clothes in the load the longer it will take to dry. If you want to reduce drying time, separate the clothes into piles of light and heavy items and dry them separately.
  4. please comment on these solution by saying how helpful.

There is no heat

Check the exhaust vent tubing throughout. If clogged up with lint the sensor will shut the heating completely off all the time till cleaned

I have a large capacity Kenmore dryer that is not heating up what should I look for model #75201

A clogged exhaust vent tubing will collect lint causing the moister sensor to shut down the heat. Inspect & clean and it will operate again. If not the sensor is bad or the spark ignitor is at fault. The spark ignitor makes a clicking sound upon starting the dryer up within 20 seconds

Kenmore dryer 70 series flame ignites, but goes out after 5 mins

If it's gas, the coil valves get weak and are unable to hold themselves open when hot. First, check the exhaust vent. If it's clogged, it can't remove heat and it will shut off prematurely. Most likely the coil valves though.

Dryer shut off while drying will not come back on

unit is over heating.... check venting for clogs, run unit without venting on and see if same problem happens, if not, theres a clog. clean venting also if you can check where it exhausts from the outside of the home. animals build nests there since its warm.

Dryer is not drying clothes

chances are not na problem with dryer, runs for a bout a min and shuts off sounds normal for an empty dryer, the problem is probably where the exhaust leaves the roof, .roof vents have installed from factory a screen to prevent things from entering when not in use. problem is that screen clogs with moist lint and prevents proper air flow. go up and check that vent remove screen you should be fine
