Question about Kenmore 64972 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

The dryer has died on me. It was working earlier this morning and suddenly it stopped. The light inside didn't come on. I tried unplugging and replugging the machine. It did not trip the fuse box outside the house. The door shuts fine. I have read that it could be due to the thermal fuse. But I have not opened the dryer to look yet. Any suggestions as to what I could do now?

Your main panel should be inside the house, and if its an old you have fuses and if its newer you have breakers. Is this the panel you checked.

Your first step it to make sure power is coming to the outlet, but you need a multimeter to check this.

If it is the thermal fuse, your vent must be clogged, because only overheating would cause this.

Go to this website, and look for the part, it should have the schematic
for your dryer and you can see where the part is.

The dryer was drying, and suddenly stopped and control panel says call technician. Then says door open, won`t start after unplugging to reset it. The inside light stopped working at that time.


It may have overheated. Wait a couple of hours and try again. If it still doesn't work you will need an engineer to diagnose the problem. As it went out during a cycle it could be high limit thermostat or high limit cut out. Both are available on eBay and Amazon. Those parts fail if the dryer gets too hot caused by bad airflow, clogged filters, exhaust pipe or stuck vent slats outside.

My acer laptop suddenly shutdown then it didn't turn on,the led of the charger is blinking,what is the problem?


you may have had a surge on your charger, i'd unplug it and try a different outlet. After you unplug it, remove the battery for about a minute, then when at the new location plug the battery back in and then the charger. see if that works. if it doesn't it's possible that your charger just died. Did you happen to look and see how much battery you had available when it died?

Try this :
Bring a hair dryer ,then remove your battery and sim card,then turn the hair dryer on (the hot air)
make the hair dryer focus on the phone from the battery side becuase there are some holes wich the
hot air can get inside the mobile and dry the mobile hard ware.
Make the hair dryer focus on the mobile for 5 minutes but be careful and make a distance between
the hair dryer and between the mobile to avoid damage the plastic mobile case becuase of hot air.

After five minutes turn the hair dryer off and wait until the mobile gets cold,then turn it on
This way is effective 50% to 90 %
If your mobile worked that means congratulations.
If it worked but not 100% that means there is improvement and keep drying it by the hair dryer as
i explained before,,,every dry for 5 minutes only.
But if it doesnt work at all ...that means your mobile needs a hardware repair and you have to send
it to a mobile repair store.

Front loader gas dryer suddenly stopped heating


The dryer may have a clogged or kinked vent line.
This will stop the heating.
remove the vent line form the rear of the dryer and see if it is hotter.
if so the vent line needs to be cleaned or replaced

Dryer not heating up


What you do is remove the rear dust cover. It could be the element located to the right, or it could very well be the Hi Limit mounted atop the heating element chamber. fd54e5e.jpg

Do the inside light and turntable come on when you try to cook?

Is it making any unusual noise or is it louder or quieter than normal?

Do you have the model number?
