Question about Kenmore 64732 Electric Dryer
I have an Electric Kenmoore Dryer Model 110.64732400
I had a repairman out two weeks ago for the same problem - Dryer runs but the timer won't advance and it doesn't heat up. The repairman checked witha volt meter and said the dryer seems fine and it was getting 120 volts on one side and 10 to the other. After looking at the outlet (4 prong) he suggested I replace the outlet. I replaced the outlet and the dryer worked great for 2 weeks and no I have the same problem.
I have tried flipping the circuit breaker, but the timer still doesn't advance and the unit will not heat up.
Any help or advice?
The stepper motor in those timers are prone to giving favorable readings when checked and go back to acting fruity when left to themselves. It's a sticking problem. Try taking the back off the control timer, usually you bend some tangs that hold it on straight, being careful not to overstress them and check the contact points. If they are burnt even slightly then take a file or emory cloth to them, making sure you keep them straight, don't round the corners. Then put the switch back on the head housing without the back on and plug back in. DO NOT TOUCH BACK OF TIMER WHILE PLUGGED IN. Run it through a cycle and see if the motor binds up. It may take a couple of times for it to do it if it's going to. If this doesn't work, then get back to me.
