do you have the old belt??? If so, take it to an automotive parts store and buy a belt the same size. If not take it to an appliance store that sells parts... and see if they can match it. If the old belt has any numbers on it that will be a big help. Have you tried Amazon or Ebay....??? I bet I can find a belt within a hour or two.
wel the good thing is is it is a Kenmore which generally has good support and part support usually locally. The best thing to do is get on sears website and seee if other dryers of this make and or model have had this problem and what the solution was. Also the favorable thing is that it might have been under a recall and might be covered. Anyway usually a dryer has a heating coil and a thermostat and one of those is your prblem. Take off the back after you unplug it of course and see if the coil is still intact (looks like a spring,that goes in a big circle in the back of the dryer ) it is usually behind a heat sheild (metal) and if it is what it is hooked into is the thermostat (diagram onthe back panel as well) Take that to your nearest aplliance parts store or sears parts place and they will have it if not a replacement
Depending on the type of door the dryer has, is how you approach the
access of these dryers. Mostly though you yank out the filter
first.Remove the 2 screws in the filter housing on top.Then use a putty
knife to pop the top. Remove the screws holding the front panel on.
VERY IMPORTANT! Raise the front up an inch before pulling forward or
the panel clips will break! Some models have a panel on bottom. If they
do then this panel must come off first. Then you remove the door
springs and back off the screws holding down the bottom of the door
panel. Then pop the top and remove the screws on top to get the panel
out of your way. Get the drum out and clean out the dryer. Oil the wheels and idler. Replace the belt using this diagram . NOTE yours is lower right:
IF YOU MEAN THAT THE DRYER STARTS BACK UP WHEN YOU CLOSE THE DOOR, THE PUSH TO START SWITCH IS SHORTED. CHECK TO SEE IF THE PUSH TO START BUTTON IS STUCK PRESSED IN AND NOT SPRINGING BACK OUT.
IF IT IS STUCK, TRY WD-40 TO LOOSTEN IT. OTHERWISE, REPLACE THE SWITCH.
IF THE DRYER KEEPS RUNNING WHEN YOU "OPEN" THE DOOR, THE DOOR SWITCH IS SHORTED. REPLACE THE DOOR SWITCH.
