OF COURSE SOMETHING BURNT INSIDE THE SYSTEM. YOUR MOTOR MIGHT BE BURNT. 90 SERIES, YOU MUST HAVE THE LINT FILTER ON TOP CORRECT? TAKE FILTER OUT, UNSCREWS THE TWO SCREWS, PULL TOP PANEL TOWARDS YOU AND LIFT UP. DISCONNECT LID SWITCH CONNECTOR, UNSCREW TWO SCREWS HOLDING FRONT PANEL ON, REMOVE FRONT PANEL, TAKE DRUM OUT AND CHECK THE UNIT. GOOD LUCK

Kenmore electric dryer 70 series - it starts, motor sounds horrible, turns, gets hot, almost a burnt smell. what do i do?


Greetings,
it sounds like its bad...they usually will drag slightly when you push start. in other words, you can hear a delay in it starting...almost a hum, but not always...if its smelling like burnt wiring..it usually cuts off and will not come back on until it cools down..

Are you sure its the motor thats making noise?? if a roller goes bad..it will go thump,thump, thump and they make alot of noise too...does it stop during the cycle? if you have more question, let me know and hope this helps

Dryer noise sounds like bearing out or a roller is bad model # 417-98702891


my dryer makes a funny noise about 10 to 15 min. into cycle. then shuts off. if you try to restart will not restart unless you hold start button down. once you let go will stop. wait about an hour and dryer will run for another 10- 15 min and start process over again.

Clothes come out of dryer with a fish like smell, the lint screen is cleanit is a kenmore 90 series gas dryer and the washing machine is an kenmore elite top loader about 8 years old the laundry detergent...


Chances are, the odor is from the washing machine.

Do the clothes smell when you take them out of the washer or after they have been in the dryer?

Tide makes a washing machine product that can help deodorize a washer, but using white vinegar with a hot wash cycle (empty) will also help. I think Home Depot or other home improvement stores may carry the Tide product. Maybe even your local grocer.

Also check the dryer for any odd odors. Sometimes scented dryer sheets put into the dryer with it empty can help deodorize it, or you can manually wipe the inside of the dryer with a product like Clorox Wipes. Check the dryer venting for any obstructions or restricted air flow just to be sure.

If the problem persists and it it still smells, it's possible (not too likely) you could have a pest issue, depending on your location and time of year.

Kenmore 70 dryer smells burnt


There could be dust settled on the motor inside from the few years in storage. Unplug and remove back, with a hoover brush **** off all dust but do this lightly as to not disturb any connections.

Kenmore Series 80 (110.74882401) heat cycles on only for 10 secs


This is a pretty easy fix and I recently had the same problem. I made a quick video about it. The problem was the dryer was run only a few mins then quit. The dryer limit was tripping because the control thermostat was not shutting down the lower safety limit was tripping and the power from the control thermostat was diverted via the orange wire to the timer motor which kinda caused the main motor to stop. When i ran the dryer in NO HEAT the dryer stayed running and that was my clue as to what may of been happening and that was the problem in a nutshell. My video:

My clothes smell burnt


If you have done any recent painting or drywall work, oftentimes the dryer will breathe these fumes and it will affect the smell of your clothes. (Just had the same problem) Maybe let the area air out and see if that corrects your problem

Machine won't work. kenmore 90 series


Might be a broken motor or a blown fuse. I would suggest having your machine looked at by a specialist. If it's old, you might consider replacing it.
