Question about Kenmore Dryers

1 Answer

My door will not shut

I have a kenmore 2406028. My husband was pulling laundry out of it when he lost his balance (it in a tight space) and fell partially on the door. He did not fall completely on it, and it still moves but it will not stay shut.

    The latch and striker where my first suspects to. But I removed the door from it hinges. Then I just shut the door. It clicked and stayed. So I pulled it back off the dryer.

    I inspected where the hinges mount on to the door. The metal there had bent. So I got a small flat tool and my rubber mallet, and banged them flat again. Reassembled the door to the spring loaded hinges. It is good as new.

Is the latch and strike still intact ? If it is, you should hear or feel a distinct "click" when closing the door. if that is ok but the door simply won't stay latched, I'd suspect a bent door or hinge assembly. if it isn't ok, you can get a latch and strike in a kit #279570, the most common kit for kenmore/whirlpool dryers over the past 30-35yrs. or so. It will also work in most other makes too. your unit may also have a "spare" latch built into it for door reversal, but not the "strike". you may be able to straighten the door or hinge by removing the door and examining what's bent and correct it. either way, you need to first identify what is bent/or out of alignment.

hope that helps

good luck.

Kenmore Model 110.2234 top loading wash machine About a year old It is so loud on spin cycle we cant hear each other talk in the other room with laundry door shut What is the problem?


Possible bearing failure but if only a year old, it should be under warranty. Check around the spin bowl for any foreign objects sticking through the tub. Perhaps a bra wire or nail , screw etc or something has come out and stuck in the tub.

How can I get a laundry cap out of the drain where you put the laundry soap, bleach and softener?


Can you see the cap?
Is the soap tube a separate piece that you can remove?
What's the year, make and model?
A local repairman would be able to solve the problem, as a last resort.

MOTOR WONT RUN ON A KENMORE DWJR-ELE-2406028-FM54


Seems like you have a bad door switch , you should have continuity when the door is shut and OL when door is open . If switch is fine you may have a sock jammed in the blower wheel .

GOOD LUCK

Reciever keeps shutting off!


If your reciever is in a tight enclosed space, than it will overheat and shut down to protect itself. Try to get some ventilation to it by either opening the cabinet door, adding a fan, or pulling it completely out of the enclosed space.

No heat with drying


LOOK AT THE DIAPHRAM. AppliancePartspros.com and looks like the easiest way for this one is from the bottom of the dryer.

IT SOUNDS LIKE THE OUTER BAND TO HOLD ON THE DOOR BOOT/SEAL. WHAT I HAVE SEEN IS THAT AN ARTICLE OF CLOTHES WAS NOT ALL THE WAY INTO THE WASHER AND IT WAS STARTED, PULLING THE DOOR BOOT INTO THE WASHER. THE ONLY OTHER THING I HAVE NOTICED WITH THIS NEW BREED OF SUPER CAPACITY WASHERS IS THAT THEY LIKE BIGGER LOADS TO HELP BALANCE THEMSELVES. IT MAY BE POSSIBLE THAT IT WAS SO SEVERLY OUT OF BALANCE THAT IT PULLED THE BOOT INTO THE TUB AS THE MAYTAGS OF THAT MODEL LINE WERE KNOWN TO NOT BE THE MOST SENSITIVE TO OUT OF BALANCE CONDITIONS. THERE IS A CONTROL BOARD KIT THAT COMES WITH A MOTION SENSOR NOW FOR THEM AS AN UPGRADE.
