SOURCE: Defy dryer, not heating

Check that you have 220v first. Your dryer will work on 110V but will not dry. You need to check all thermostats with a ohm meter (be sure to unplug dryer), they should be 2 ohms or less. Set ohm meter to 1x. If they are good go to heating element (your ohm meter should be on 1X as wel. You need to check to make sure you have continuity (however, this does not mean that it is not bad). You need to take it out and visually inspect it to make sure it has no breaks in the coil. If it does you can buy a rewire kit for runder 30 bucks for most models.

This will be bearing noise, the front of the drum uses a felt strip as a bearing and this can wear causing a metal on metal grinding sound, or it could be the rear bearing. You need to dismantle it to investigate further.

My kenmore 110.66512694 is not drying and is not turning off automatically, i have to turn it off myself or it will run forever.


Their are 2 types of dryers. Electronic dryness sensing style and Autodry style. Yours is Autodry.
Electronic dryers have a dryness board which relies on info from moisture sensing bars that the wet clothes rub against. AutoDry models like yours alternates the power between the heating element and the timer motor. This is what you heating assembly looks like:

themobilian_2118.jpg
Check all the components on the heating assembly for continuity.

I reccommend that you replace that small spring after all that spring is the only thing that holds the shaft in the cv. (usually when you replace a cv boot the new kit comes with a new spring ) this means that you will have to replace it every time you dismantle it.

Good luck and I hope this answer helps.

   Remove 2 screws holding door hinge to cabinet and remove door.  Then remove 2 screws opposite these. Grab front panel with thumbs at area of screws you removed and pull outward with thumbs. Panel will pivot forward.  Remove panel from lower clips.  At top of exposed area remove 2 5/16 screws.  Remove brackets under them. 
  Open dispenser and remove 4 screws.  Careful not to drop in dispenser.  Remove dispenser frame assembly.
  You can now raise top of washer to a 90 degree position.
   Now back to front exposed area.  Grab boot where it contacts front and peel out of groove.  Also remove two screws holding light assembly and remove cover.  Remove all 5/16 screws holding front assembly and the ones on top area where it is on a bevel.  Remove front assembly by folding up and onto top. 
  Now we are at the boot.  Remove spring and wire assembly holding boot to drum.  Make note on boot position and spring position.  Remove boot.  Install new boot onto drum.  wrap wire around drum with ends at top.  Now the fun!  Hook spring to on end of wire and using vise-grips,  pull to other end to hook into wire.  It can be done,  honest.
  Now just reverse to reassemble.  should be instructions with boot.   Good luck!
