Re: Motor runs, but no spin on Kenmore front load dryer

More than likely your belt has come off there is a panel in back remove it and look inside now the wheel that keeps the belt tight has a habit of coming off if some yahoo didn't put it on right find it and look for two slots in the floor of the drier it slips into put it in the slots and pull it down then put the belt on top of it should fix the problem

I have a Kenmore Electric Dryer Model 66812. The motor runs, but the heat doesn't come on ... so it's not drying. What's wrong? Is it worth fixing? Estimate to fix?

ELECTRIC Dryer no heat or little heat:

Check your venting and lint basket. Check blower for lint build up and blower wheel obstruction., test by trying to turn the wheel manually by hand (should be easy) May have to remove cabinet or front/back plate to get to it)

Next check the heating element itself with a meter for continuity OHMS CLOSED CIRCUIT. If not its defective.

Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage. 220 because if u only get half or 110 volts you will be able to run the machine which uses only 110 to run motor but not the heater which uses a full 220,

Check the thermal cut off, the cycling and the hi limit thermostats.
For continuity or OHMS. If no ohms or resistance they need replacement.

Lastly check your moister sensor. ( located inside the dryer door usually) Especially if machine seems to shut down early and clothes are still wet.
Test with a meter at room temperature and it should show continuity.

Dryer makes loud squeaking sound when spining

how old? Dryers squeak for one of 3 reasons..bad belt, bad motor or drum rubbing against dryer framework.
run it empty...intermittent squeaks usually are the drum...something's bent
continuous- is there any burning smell? If so, most likely the motor, if not, possibly the belt.
Open the top (most have screws or can just be pried open) and watch it run...identify the source of the sound if possible

try spraying the belt and motor with a little wd-40 and let it dry for a day, then try again.
If that doesn't help, repairman or new/used dryer...probably better off to find a decent one off of craigslist b4 paying to repair an already faulty machine

Kenmore 86874800 electric dryer. It doesn't spin (rotate).

Can you hear the motor running? If so, you need to replace the drive belt. If you can't hear the motor running, you will need to get a schematic from the Sears/Kenmore website and check for voltage inside the cabinet. You could also buy another used dryer for $100. This route is certainly cheaper than paying for a service call and repair.

I typed in 66812 not the number that is showing - I need to know what receptacle to use with the Kenmore 66812 electric dryer. Thanks for any help you can give me.

on the front of dryer open the door there should be a tag or on the rear where the cord goes into the dryer there should be a tag to tell you what the voltage is
should be a 250 volt plug and outlet to match
nema # plug-S42 AND THE OUTLET # 6-30 OR 6-50

Won't spin anymore. Comes on, but barrell won't spin. dead motor?

Do you hear the motor running? It may just be a broken belt. If it is in fact the motor it can be replaced.

Motor runs but drum doesnt spin

The belt may have broken, you must open the dryer case and check the belt. If broken, you'll see it laying on the bottom
