Question about Dryers

1 Answer

Can you wire in a motor from a different kind of Kenmore dryer? The specs are the same the only difference is one has a wiring harness and one of the colors doesn't matchup. I have been looking for a schematic with no luck.

If shaft length is same should work look for numbers on wire and on motor block might try matching by number rather than color

Kenmore 90 series dryer runs fine until I put clothes in it then it shuts off after I let go of start button


If you are lucky, it is just a heater relay.

You can actually use the motor relay to test if the heater relay is bad, by switching them around. They are interchangeable!
Below is a parts layout for reference.

  1. Unplug power
  2. Then pry the left end cap loose
  3. Remove the philips screw holding the control panel
  4. Remove the back panel plate to inspect, see below diagram:

If the dryer stays running when you push "start", you must replace the heater relay!

Note: Do not run your dryer until you have all returned the wires to their proper relays...

What led among 1,2,3,4,6,8 receives 24 volt


I see you posted this in a couple of different sections.
Did you get the new wiring harness and spark plug wire with the module ? The old spark plug wire is soldered to the box.
The wiring harness kit comes with the instructions.
You also get a package of cigarette connectors to modify the new harness to fit the old wires.

Hi Ginko. I have a Kenmore dryer model 11086810100 that has some wires removed from inside. The only HOT I can find is the red wire. I have 2 wires that have femals push-on crimped terminals, but I have no...


Hi Robert.

Thanks for the pics. I operate in UK and color codes here are different.
From what I can see the wiring in your picture does not match the US standard either.
The thermal fuse for example should have two blue terminals, not red and blue. The thermal fuse wires goes on one side to start, and on the other to the drive motor through the broken belt switch (if present).
The wiring at the blower must be revised and done again.

Here a service manual covering Kenmore 70 series dryers.

There is a wiring diagram at page 25.

Here a picture showing correct wiring: http://www.applianceblog.com/mainforums/attachments/sears-kenmore/3298d1196129125-kenmore-dryer-model-110-86870100-wont-heat-ldrwp-checkpoints.jpg

About the red and yellow cable, the only red yellow wire in the diagram operates the switch for the guard function. The wire becomes hot and powers the motor when the guard switch is closed.

I have an F40 code on my Kenmore Elite Dryer, model # 110.67092600


Fault code F40 is a communication error between the machine control and the motor control. Disconnect power then remove three screws from the rear of the console assembly and pull console towards the front of the dryer to hinge open and remove console. You'll see three electronic assemblies; the machine control electronics, the motor control electronics, and the user interface electronics.

Visually check the communication harness, the three-wire harness that connects between the machine control electronics and the motor control electronics. Make sure it is fully inserted into both electronic controls and the terminal connections are clean. Reseating the connections several times will help clean off dirt and corrosion build up.

Do the same with the the wire harnesses connected to the motor control electronic assembly. Make sure they are clean and fully inserted into the control. It is a good idea to do the same thing with all other wire harnesses in all of the electronic assemblies.

Error code F44 on sears kenmore elite oasis electric dryer.Doesn't seem to be cycling completely.


The F44 error code on this type of dryer indicates a blower motor control board failure. Since it happens only occasionally, then you could have a loose wiring connection or a partial obstruction in the blower housing. Complete details of the troubleshooting for this error code are included in this link of a previous answer: What does the fault code F44 indicate on my Kenmore Elite Oasis dryer?

I recommend that you unplug the dryer and check the wire harness connections if you are confident that you can safely access the internal dryer components. If you find a loose connection, then tightening it or plugging the harness securely into the connection will likely correct this problem.

On the new timer , you have 2 wires comming of the timer motor . The blue wire should go to one of these terminals on the timer itself . The place where there is ONLY a timer motor wire going to , is where it should go .

F11 SHOWS ON THE PANEL.


HI. This is a Serial communication error

Communication between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the Motor Control Unit (MCU) cannot be sent correctly.

Potential Causes

• Check Wire Harness connections to the MCU, the motor, and Central Control Unit (CCU)
• Check the Drive system for any worn or failed components
• Check MCU
• Check CCU
• Check Motor
• Check Wire Harness

Replace failed component.(usually the wiring harness will need to be replaced in this case, but a faulty Motor Control Board is not uncommon)

Sears kenmore dryer wont run (Electric)


Sounds like the motor relay and/or the even heat board. Remove endcaps from console and remove 2 screws in corner. Pull console torwards you and up and it will flip up. The board is on the left and there are 2 relays on the right. The only difference is one has big red wires and the other has smaller blue ones. Blue wires are motor relay. Possibility of door switch also broken off.
