Question about Kenmore Dryers

Kenmore Dryer doesn't stay on. After sitting for awhile, it turns off 15-30 seconds after starting. If I then immediately re-try, it turns off once I let go of the starter button. What part should I replace? kenmore dryer model number 110.66662500

    Thanks for the info. Well, it depends on the parts involved. If the ignition part is cheap ($15 or less) on ebay, I'll just buy it and see if it fixes it. I'm ready to buy the thermostat too and just replace that since I found it on ebay for less than $9 including shipping. If I pay the costs of hiring help, I may as well get a new dryer. (To just look at it, it costs $90. Add in parts and labor you're at least around $200. My dryer is old and basic so that's fast approaching replacement cost...)

    So, what is the part that does ignition called, so I can search for it?

Sounds like the ignition is not firing. A dryer is pretty simple but not so simple that I would just start guessing at parts. Can you find the electrical schematic? Can you trace the circuit? You may have to hire someone to troubleshoot it and tell you what is wrong then you can change the part.

When you first start it it doesn't stay running after second try then it runs

I've seen this happen quite often, my vehicle does the same, ALWAYS take 2 times to start it. Check this, the fuel pressure regulator, and anything connected in the path with it. After it sits awhile, the gas drains back down the line instead of keeping a run level at the engine. The first try at starting, it doesn't have enough fuel at the engine and it has to pump up. The second time is ready to go. The vacuum on the line of the fuel system is being lost somehow. That is just an opinion but, keep in mind. Hope it helps you.

It sounds like it's time for a new battery. Here is your battery:
If replacing the battery doesn't get this player up and running, you will need to contact Sandisk for repair or replacement of your player.

Kenmore Elite Dryer button won't stay on - no heat

There is a switch on the motor, (centrifugal) that bypasses the push to start once the motor is turning. It is in the heat circuit also. Look there first...Eric

Try to turn on but it wont stay on

If that dryer has a 4 wire start switch which simply twists a quarter turn to get off then replace it.

Dryer wont get hot in the am i try it it will wrk for one load then wont get hot same thing for 4 days now

I have a Whirlpool dryer with LP gas, 7 1/2 years old. It will fire up once or twice after started then the next time it is supposed to fire it will make a buzzing sound. No heat. It will not produce heat after this until it sits for awhile then the same thing, will fire once or twice then no more. I replaced the ignitor and this did not solve the problem although it did have a consistent firing for about 3 minutes immediately after I replaced the part. then it started buzzing again and would not fire anymore. The propane line doesn't appear to be the problem either since it will work initially. Also the gas water heater in the house works fine.
