Unplug unit/dicnnect power. 3 1/4in screws will remove lower panel, allowing access to remove lint(if excessive amount i would also have venting cleaned and or replaced.

Heating elements could be going bad. Or the high temp fuse is out. Check the fuse for continuity and inspect the element for any breaks in the wiring

Kenmore dryer 110.66912690 .Does the motor shut off when the belt breaks? I know the drum can't turn, but the motor will not run. It just finished drying a load of clothes. Thanks


Yes it has a broken belt switch. This is a 4 wheel drive model. To replace the broken belt. The first thing to do is use your index finger to pop the shoulders off each end of the console. Place your finger on the top of the shoulder and pull towards you till it comes free from the control. This will expose the hold down screw on each end. Remove them next and flip up the console. 3 quarter inch hex heads screws must then be removed to get the top off. Once that is accomplished use a putty knife to release the base panel and remove it. Take care to see how the door switch wires go.remove the filter and filter chute. Remove the door springs then the yellow wire from the drum sensors. Remove the front panel, Remove the drum. Clean er up. My Video:

Switching a kenmore dryer door from right to left. I have taken off the door.. but it looks like I need to remove the plastic covering on the door to remove the hinge and install on the other side. There...


In General the deconstruction of the door is not needed. With a great deal of Kenmore dryers you can simply turn the door 180 degrees and reinstall it.

How to get into the cabinet? I have a Kenmore Dryer that hums but the drum won't turn, maybe belt! Model # 110 62942100 thanks, tom


Hi,

Kenmore dryer belt


  • UNPLUG DRYER
  • remove lint filter
  • remove two screws in lint filter panel securing cabinet lid to filter frame
  • with putty knife or other blunt blade, depress clips ~2inches in from the front corners of the lid to release cabinet lid
  • tilt lid up
  • remove 1 screw from each side 1/3 the way down
  • remove cabinet front and door
  • motor bearings tensioner are all visible

  • lift out drum forwards
  • check support rollers felts and nylon glide bearings for wear
    (worn bearing surfaces are the most common cause of belt breakage, and you dont want to do it again next month)
  • make sure tensioner is still installed in cabinet base, sometimes breaking belts pull them out
  • loop belt around drum at prior wear marks
  • reinsert drum
  • pull tensioner to end of travel against spring
  • loop belt around motor pully and tensioner
  • relax tensioner
  • rotate drum by hand to make sure belt wont jump off.
Thanks

Dryer wont stay on... it appears to have intermittent heat.


You have a broken belt. This dryer is complimacated but here goes.Remove the console screwsand flip the control panel upwards simular to what they do on washers. Remove the 3 screw in the rear that hold the top and get the top off. Pop the bottom panel and back off the screws holding the front on then remove the screws from inside the top. You can get the front off now. Get the drum out and clean out the dryer. Oil all 4 wheels and idler. You will note the micro switch below the idler. that stops the drum from turning when the belt breaks. You will be a pro if you can fix this one.

it is..remove bottom panel ..after unplugging from wall..remove lint screen next remove 3 screws holding the lint screen/blower housing in place ..clean out housing clean blower wheel with long brush or a long arm clean lint from base and on element housing on right side especially on top of the housing..that is the most important location if lint gets too thick on element housing ..fire hazard....ckd vent behind dryer and to outside if you find a large amount of lint .that is good indication of a restricted vent
