Question about Kenmore 63942 Dryer

Kenmore Soft Dry,

The dryer does not start anymore. I do not hear any buzzing etc. My lint catcher is clean also. The model/ stock number is...87873100. What series would this be considered. I looked up on the internet and could not find out.

Thanks, Chris.

Try popping the lid and inspect the belt. I did one for friend. On his when the belt broke, the dryer quit. It has a built in safety switch. Sorry don't know the series. His was 15 years old plus...

Washing machine lint trap


There is no trap per say. The lint catcher is self cleaning when the water is pumped out. It sounds like you are overloading it and the clothes are hitting the agitator. Operation should be agitation by water movement not beat by the plastic fins, run a wash cycle hot water no clothes to flush things out and try smaller loads.

Kenmore model 66812694 - quits running, buzzing noise at restart


bad motor,when you hear that noise open the door,hold in the door switch with one hand and with the other spin the drum and have someone else start it while you do this,all your doing is helping the motor start to spin but it sounds like a bad motor,this could be from not cleaning out the dryer,if it's gas it should be done once a year,electric can go another 6 months because there isn't an open flame in there,if you clean out the dryer and vent line the clothes will dry on time,the parts will last longer and you won't have a dryer fire.

How can I remove the front of my dryer so I can clean out the lint? I have a brush, but it can not unclog the large amount of lint once the lint catcher is removed. Model is 110 60922990


one of the most effective ways to get this lint is to use your vacuum cleaner hose and reduce the size down using heavy plastic tubing, of a small enough outside diameter. Many sizes of plastic tubing are available at hardware stores, home depots, etc. Be sure to get a thick walled tubing that will not collapse under the suction. good luck with it.

Flame goes off


First make sure that your exhaust pipe going outside is completely clear. Also you may need to clean the lint out of the drier. If you take the lint catcher assembley off on the inside, ther will be alot of lint inside. Just clean out what you can by hand, then vacuum out the rest. This should take care of your problem.

I have a kenmore gas dryer 110.74832400 doesnt heat


You stated you checked all lints roblems. Just to make sure. Did you remove the lint catcher completely on the inside? If not take that off and clead the lint out of the inside of the duct. Also lint can build up inside the lint duct on the rear of the drier and in the duct going outside of your home.

Dryer does not dry


Problem is likely:

- heating element, or
- one of several thermal limit switches in the electrical circuitry

If you want to further pursue, let me know.

Knemore 80 series dryer won't start every time


Go to www.repairclinic.com and enter your model number and it will show you all your parts, but I suggest you change your thermostats and basically have the dryer cleaned out of possible lint build up on the interior

Can you turn drum by hand? If so you probably need a motor.

Jeff, almost sounds like a timer issue, but I was fooled on this once. Under the consol is a inline resistor from the main plug. If this resistor is bad, dryer keeps running in timed dry. Part number for the resistor is 3401076. Look it up on the web so you know what it looks like. Just splices in.. Catriver..post back.
