Question about Kenmore 63942 Dryer

1 Answer

I have a Sears Kenmore 70 Series Dryer (model 76712693, serie # MH0313532) will run for awhile and than just stop and have to cool off. But, the drum is even hard to turn manually all the time. What could be the problem?

You have either a bad motor or something stuck in the blower wheel.

Kenmore 70 series dryer squeaked, heated, drum turned, then turned off and won't come back on--is it toast or worth fixing?


It all depends on how you look at things.
Comparatively speaking, dryers are a piece of cake.
However, with out mechanical ability and tools, it could be over your head.
You decide.
If you choose to fix it yourself, it could be done for a few dozen dollars.
Hiring a repair man could make it cheaper to buy a new one.
New parts are available through "Sears parts" on the internet.
Someone will need to take it all apart to see why it stopped on you. To do it yourself, you may also need an electrical testing meter.
Be blessed.

Kenmore 70 Series Dryer not heating and not cutting off


I had an identical problem to yours this weekend with my Kenmore dryer. There were 2 problems.

1. Timer was broken. Does not advance to "OFF" position on timed dry, however it still works for auto-dry.

2. Thermal fuse was blown. Upon replacing, dryer heated up normally.

I believe when the timer broke, the dryer had kept running and blew the thermal fuse. On Sears' website, thermal fuse is $5.30, timer is roughly $80.

Makes squeaking noise after running for about 10 minutes


there are 2 drum rollers at the back of the dryer. shut off power, pull drum and you will see 2 rubber wheels. there is a little plastis triangle that keeps the roller in place. try spinning the rollers . they probably will not spin too freely. remove triangles ,inspect inside of roller the stainless steel bearing may have gunk on it try to clean off . also check shaft roller rides likewise remove any debri use a little rubbing alcohol to remove gunk. also check the idler roller that routes the belt for the same things. good luck
