Question about Kenmore Dryers

1 Answer

I have a Kenmore gas dryer, model 110.70932990. A few minutes after starting it will shut itself off and the control knob will continue to the end of the cycle. Sometimes it will complete a cycle. Ideas?

Above find your service and repair manual, to assist in troubleshooting your issue.
Below is a DIY self help how to troubleshoot and find your problems.

I wouldn't wonder if you haven't suffered a power Strike, surge etc. This may explain the intermittent nature of your issue?
it is my professional opinion though that everyone should take their units, or get called upon, through their manufacturers approved service center/man, contacting a head office, of your unit & getting an approved service center is just SO important, at those places, the Engineers, are trained on the equipment you have, they usually have parts on hand, and do the job quicker. Anyway do that and get a "Quote". This way, at least, you'll know weather to repair or replace.

    Not very helpful. That is not the service and repair manual for my unit, nor does the DIY website address my problem.

You could have a blown fuse because of a clogged vent or a bad thermistor. A thermistor is used by electronic controls to measure temp changes inside the dryer. If the sensor is open then the brain does not have a clue how hot the dryer is. So it shuts down. Repair clinic has an excellent thermistor replacement video.

It could be a couple of things, but I would start with the flame sensor. Different models work differently.

Dryer stops but the timer continues on


Fixed! The "push to start" button was stuck. Must have been some dust. I pushed the knob a few times and that's all it took. Works fine now.
