Mine stops if it overheats and you have to let it cool down and then press a reset button on the back. It could also be fuse or it may have tripped the breaker.

Kenmore front load dryer won't heat and timer broken


The most likely cause is the timer is bad. It turns on and off things as it cyles through and the first step is to get the tub turning before it turns on the heat.

I have a Kenmore 70 top load dryer that is not heating. And the timer doesnt turn off anymore either. Both items seem to have malfunction at the same time. Help?


This is typical. If the heating element is no longer working, the unit doesnt know to turn off due to the clothes still being wet. However, the timer has absolutely nothing to do with the heating of the unit. If the timer doesnt turn off the unit even when the time is short (example: 10 minute timed dry), the timer has a different issue. If you have merely set the dryer to dry the clothes (not a "timed cycle" to dry) then the dryer will continue to run as I have stated before. The dryer will run until the clothes are dry. Now, its time to address the heating part. Your dryer heating element has gone bad. It can be replaced if you are somewhat handy. You can pick one up from your local appliance store and it has simple instructions. Please make sure that you disconnect the unit from its power source prior to attempting any repairs. Safety First. You can also call someone to replace it for you and it shouldnt be too costly. Good luck on either option.

Timer on dryer does not shut off


does the timer turn and keep turning? does it stay put? heat? try using a fluf/no heat cycle for a few minutes to see if it will turn off on its own. if it doesnt turn off then you need a new timer

Kenmore Dryer, heating element doesnt turn off


remove the back of dryer and remove the heating element from the heater box,check to see if the wires in the box are touching the heater box walls any where,this would make the element stay on all the time,also check the high temp thermostat on the left side bottom,this is the on off thermo for the heating element-mike

Timer appears to not be working, no clicking noise as I turn it, and the dryer will no longer turn on no matter the setting


HI, this absent clicking noise from the timer control is a signal of a failed timer mechanism. replace this damaged timer asap, if possible. it has failed.

Dryer will only run for 10 minutes at a time


Hi, this is heat related. the timer module on this unit is overheating, in return, it is shutting down due to the heat generated but the faulty timer circuits. you will need to replace the timer device asap.
