Kenmore Elite electric dryer (king sized 9 cycles)

I have an electric Kenmore Elite king size 9 cycle dryer with Total care system with the even heat system. The dryer was making a high pitched sound. Then it stopped working. I unplugged it and waited and then plugged it in again. When it came back up the PF light was on and I pushed a few buttons and it started working again. Then a few weeks later it happened again. However, this time, there was no loud pitched noise. Now it is not working. Is there something that I can do to fix it myself?

There are 3 things that may be wrong.
The timer is keeping the transmission in neutral drain.
The clutch is slipping.
The basket drive block that supports the basket has failed.
Aimiel is correct that you will need to see what is happening during the spin to diagnose the problem. Please post the complete model number from the top under the lid and I will try to walk you through checking it.
Thanks/Mike

Check to see if the door switch is working. When you push and release it, it should click. If not, it will need to be replaced.
If the switch is good, then the only other component that would cause that problem is the thermal fuse. If you could post your model number I could direct you to the part you need.

Kenmore agitates doenst spin


You will have to look at the inside of the washer when in spin cycle to see what is going on. Is the spinner motor not engaging the drum? Is the spinner working at all? It sounds like the spinner isn't being moved against the drum before the spin cycle starts. Most washers use a seperate spinner motor, which is lifted off the drum by a relay and / or solenoid and if one or more of those is malfunctioning, it will cause your described problem.

If the washer is roaring during spin, the bearings are bad and you will need to replace the outer tub assembly.
Here is the part to order.

The part comes with a 365 day, any part, any reason return.

If the venting is clogged this will happen. And that is a good thing because it is a safety measure built in to prevent fires. There is a thermostat that can tell when your dryer is over-heating,(usually caused by clogged venting by lint) and this devise tells the heating element to turn off so as not to create a fire. Clean out venting, inspect thermostats and element, replace if neccesary. You may only have to clean out the venting.
