My kenmore gas dryer end buzzer goes off and dryer shuts down before cycle is complete

Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Kenmore gas dryer
  • Vacuum with hose attachment
  • Replacement fuse, if necessary
    Dryer Not Heating
  1. Remove lint from your dryer's lint screen. Remove the lint screen from your Kenmore dryer and vacuum the area behind the lint screen with your vacuum's hose attachment.
  2. Check to make sure that the dryer temperature is set appropriately, and has not inadvertently been turned to "Air Fluff."
  3. Ensure that the gas valve on the supply line to your Kenmore dryer is completely open.
  4. Check the room temperature in your laundry room to make sure that it is at least 45 degrees. Your Kenmore dryer will not operate properly at temperatures below 45 degrees.
  5. Make sure that the dryer outlet grill is not blocked by a fabric softening sheet.
  6. Dryer Not Running
  7. Check to see that the dryer cord is properly plugged in to the electrical outlet.
  8. Check your fuse box to make sure that the fuse is not blown, or check your circuit breaker to make sure that it has not tripped. Replace the fuse if necessary or throw the circuit breaker.
  9. Check the outlet itself to make sure that it functions properly by plugging in a portable device.
  10. please comment on these solution on how it works by rating or voting.

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

Good day,
Without a make, model or style of heating (gas or electric) I'm at a handicap.
However, if it is a gas dryer, and will heat the first cycle but nothing after that until it cools down, then it usually is the gas valve.
A coil kit, consisting of 2 black coils is usually what goes wrong.
They develop an internal short, and must be replaced. They are mounted on top of the gas valve with a bracket.
Unplug the wires and remove the 2 bracket screws. Install in reverse order. It's a pretty easy repair.

Kenmore Gas Dryer Gets Hot, Shuts Off Early in Cycle

Sounds like a faulty high limit or cycling thermostat. The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a certain temp. It should be mounted on the exhause duct inside the back of the dryer. It should look something like the one in the picture:

Hope this helped and best wishes.

I have an Kenmore 80 Series Gas Dryer, the heat is not staying on. I've changed the heating element and no change. It heats up for 2-3min then turns off for 3-4min then restarts for 20-40sec. then off...

How are ya?

The heating element is supposed to cycle on and off to maintain a set temperature. If it takes too long to come back on again, then the thermistat is malfunctioning.

Take a temperature probe and stick it in the drum and let it run for a few minutes and note the temperature. Should be consistantly near 90 - 130 degrees. Good luck :)

Kenmore dryer starts, then stops. Heated motor smell

First CLEAN out the lint, not just in the mesh screen, but also by opening up the dryer to check for lint around the motor, and the manifold that connects from the drum to the outlet tube. Open up the manifold, carefully, remove lint, and REPLACE the heat sensor/temperature thermocouple that is on the outside, and has a protruding point into the manifold ($20 or less). If the drum spins when you start the cycle, it is NOT the motor! The burning smell is probably LINT that stuffed into the outlet pipe and manifold.
I have cleaned the outlet tube, manifold, and areas under/around the drum for my dryer, and my rental properties and "fixed" the problem. If it still turns off, then get the correct replacement sensors and replace them. DO NOT open the heating element. The wires inside are fragile.

Check your igniter coil. It sounds like this part could be going bad. Another possibility is that the thermostat is defective. Some dryers have more than one thermostat.

Yet another possibility is that your thermal fuse is faulty.

Are you getting little or no lint on the lint screen? Are the clothes coming out nearly as wet as they went in, but feel warm? If so, you probably have a blockage somewhere in the vent/duct. Don't just check the back of the dryer, but also check the duct thru the wall and the point where it exits the house (exterior wall or roof). Many times birds will nest in the exterior vents or if they have a screen to keep the birds out it may become clogged with lint. If you have a window nearby try drying a load with the vent hose disconnected from the wall and hang it out the window (you COULD vent it into the house, but you may end up with lint everywhere and a lot of moisture in your house).
