Question about Dryers

Kenmore dryer Hi I have a kenmore 67832 model number that just stopped working and was wondering if you had any advice what to start looking at? It was running fine then the last couple of days it would just shut off in the middle of the cycle. Now It won't restart.

    We have the same problem. Would the switch affect the light at all? The light is working, just nothing happens when I hit the button. Should I check the Operating Thermal Switch? (And how the heck do I check that???). I'd love to fix it and not shell out money just yet for a new one.

    We have the same problem. The dryer would start for about 30 seconds then stops.

Check the outside circuit breakers also check the door switch. Check to see if the switch holds with the door closed when you push it in.

How do I stop my kenmore dryer, model 970-c87172, from beeping? Drying, cool down, wrinkle rid and clean lint filter lights flash 3 times. Start light doesn't flash at all. It does this even

Hi Brenda

First off It seems that you model is not correct. Kenmore model numbers start with 3 number followed by a . and then some more numbers. Most Kenmore laundry numbers start with 110.xxxxxxxx. The number you have looks like a serial number which is no help.

I have a Kenmore 67832 model number that is drying but takes twice as long as it use to. The air vent is open & lint filter clean. Could it be one of the thermostats not working properly &...

It might be but do this first:Unplug the dryer. Remove the rear dust cover and then remove the filter chute and wash it out, check the blower, and wash out the filter.

They power up a small heater that changes the rate at which the control shuts off power to the heater for knit and permapress.

Dryer won't stay on

The motor centrifugal switch is not switching from the start winding to the run winding. The switch should stay in the run winding when the motor picks up speed unless power to the motor is interrupted or cut off. The switch is replaceable on most dryer models but sometimes it is an integral or built-in part of the dryer motor and failure of the switch requires the replacement of the motor. Indicate the exact model number of the dryer for more accurate troubleshooting and repair advice.

Fabric looking belt came out of dryer. when i try to dry clothes it makes a loud noise and smells like something is burning and my clothes get twisted. how do i fix it? I have a kenmore 70 series dryer

Stop using your dryer in its current condition. That fabric looking felt is probably your drum seal. They commonly wear out. I will need your dryer model number in order to confirm how your dryer is configured and give you accurate advice on part numbers and directions on how to replace. The model number should be listed on a name plate around the door opening.

Kenmore Electric Dryer Heating Problem

Most heat related problems with dryers are attributed to poor air flow. I would start there first in determining if you have a ventilation problem BEFORE replacing any components. If you don't, and you have a clog somewhere, you will end up with the same problem and repeated failed components. The following link gives some useful advice on how to troubleshoot a no heat problem:

Pay particular attention the first major paragraph that discusses the ventilation. Follow the advice and attempt to run the dryer without the exhaust vent attached, first. If the dryer begins to heat, you may have gotten lucky and avoided any failed components. However, if the dryer still does not produce heat, you probably have blown a component in the heating circuit. More commonly, the thermal cut-out (TCO) blows. Make sure you check ALL heating circuit components before taking my word for it, just to be sure. Reminder: If the TCO is blown, it is highly recommended that you replace the hi-limit thermostat at the same time. In many cases, these components are sold as a set.

Go to and type in your model number as "110.62972100". Look under the "Bulkhead" heading for item number 47 (This is the TCO/thermostat set I am referring to). Refer to this drawing as a reference for your component identification (the Heating Element is listed as item 14). I hope this information helps you. Let me know if you require additional assistance.

check also,
  • the other ends of all cables connected to the relay,
    if the other end of any part of the latching circuit has loosened, the relay will not latch closed when the start button is pressed.
  • Door Switch, it is part of the latching circuit

Kenmore Elite Heavy Duty King Size Capacity Quiet Pack II Dryer

cutiepie, I've seen this many times on these dryers. You need to replace the door hinge. Not really a hard job to do. Post a model number (inside door) and we'll get you a part back.
