Question about Dryers

Kenmore Model 110. 70970902990 motor dogs out after 10 to 15 min.

Kenmore Model 110. 70970902990
Starts up fine but eventually starts getting very loud and eventually seizes to a halt. Will not start up right after this incident. Must unplug and let it set for 45 minutes before it starts again. I am guessing bad motor bearings but I am open to other solutions.

F1 code coming up on my Oasis HE washer

YES! Serious problem...more annoying than anything else. Wait until your machine stops at the spin cycle and displays "F1" again. We just had a repair tech out today and received a quote of $384+ to fix/replace the circuit board. Kenmore & Sears are fully aware of this problem and have issued a recall on a model that is one digit off of the model I have yet they will not do anything about this even though it is the same problem. These machines are huge dogs!

Dryer starts but does not stay on

it sounds like the start windings in the motor are going bad....the motor will start and run for a few mins. or maybe even secs. and then shuts off in thermal overload. The only fix is to replace the motor and you can go to with your model number and find the part number and price of the motor....I know they usually run right around $105.

Kenmore 90 series gas dryer

The trouble is actually with the start bearings in the drive motor,I bet you have a small hummmm or GRRRRR right at the start, as if the unit wants to hesitate.
Anytime you have a dryer that starts then shutsoff and must "cool" down, it is the motor.

Good luck!
