    I called the appliance repair person ($75) and he said it was an electrical problem. My 220 plug was only receiving 110 volts. It turns out that the circuit breaker had burned out on one side. An electrician had to replace the circuit breaker. ($$)

    Thanks for all of the help. the repairperson stared with the plus. Wish I had thought of that first.

I read on another page
1) One of the thermostats could have a reset switch on it to cure problem... do not know where to find it or what it looks like! ....
2) May need to replace the element...
3) Could be the exhaust thermostat / or heater and thermostat complete/ check continuity...should be normally closed(complete circuit)
Any help to you ????

Hi there its me trying to repair mine still... Another man has given me these details! :
Most likely possibilities on heating problem. All are listed from most likely to least likely.

1. Thermal Fuse (Located near blower housing)
2. Thermostat
3. Thermostor
4. Heating Element
5. Ignitor (Gas Dryers Only)

All parts can be tested with an ohm meter for continuity. Most parts are under $20 with exceptions for the heating element and ignitor. Considering that you had a technician come out to your house, charge would be roughly $120-200. A dryer's life span is usually about 10 years; give or take. For a diagram to locate all parts within your dryer, refer to www3.sears.com with the model number of your dryer. Model number found on the side panel when you open the door of the unit. If you need more assistance, just comment and I will get back on later today or tomorrow.
Alas sears do not seem to do my model and still have not managed to find a diagram to know what I am looking for!
Best wishes willow

Kenmore dryer 70 series doesn't always start, sometimes it will just put out a buzzing sound after its been running and trying to restart, will start back up after 20-30 minutes.


Open the dryer door and slowly rotate the dryer drum in a counterclockwise (CCW) direction. Rotate the drum 2-3 revolutions and then shut the door and see if it will start. If it continues to just hum and not start could indicate a voltage issue, motor issue or a friction issue. Open the door again and locate the door switch plunger in the upper or lower corner on the hinge side of the drum opening. Hold the plunger in while someone begins rotating the drum counterclockwise. While turning the drum counter clockwise and holding the door switch plunger inwards press the start button. If it starts, there is likely a friction problem or motor problem.

The dryer drum does not rotate. I have a Kenmore electric model number 110.62622101. It blows hot air but drum does not rotate



Hi,

There can be many reasons why your dryer will not start or turn...

The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor going bad...

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....

If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

Drum rotates. No Heat. Kenmore Electric Dryer


check the thermal fuse on the top of blower wheel housing,also while your there take off the cover of the housing and clean all the lint out,if your fuse was popped the lint buildup did it,check outside and make sure the air from dryer is blowing out and is not blocked,if it is blow out vent line if it's a long run with a leaf blower,if the thermal fuse is good read out the heater with a meter and if that's good read out the t-stats

Drum does not rotate


The drum rotates due to a belt that goes around the drum and is driven by a small motor. The most likely answer is that the belt broke. This a common problem on an older dryer. It is relatively easy to replace the belt.

Extremely low drum heat but setting is on HIGH.


Electric (Kenmore - 60931) dryer takes forever (several cycles) lately to dry clothes set on high heat (actual heat in tub feels low though). There are no obstructions in the venting and the 240 volt connection is fine. The timer rotates the dial (timer motor working). Help!!!
