Overheating dryer - motor replacement???


Good day,
You said "The dryer is still overheatng". If your not describing the motor but the whole machine then that problem will have to be resolved.
Maytag's build lint up badly in the blower housing area and the duct between it and the filter. Requires disassembling the front of the dryer and cleaning that area as well as determining if the blower wheel is loose on the motor shaft requiring replacing.

If the overheating is the motor itself, then replacing it would be a common item on that brand.

Kenmore dryer. Heats up intensely


Hi, It's an over heating motor that's cousing the thermal switch to trip, on the motor.

Motor retails for $150.
Labor for putting it in is $90.

It might just be worth replacing it.
Sorry for the bad news :(

Best of luck.

Kenmore 66712 dryer stops in cycle


Your motor bearings are worn out and overheating the motor. It has a overload protector that shuts it down when it overheats. Solution is to replace motor or new dryer. Hope this helps!

My Kenmore 90 Series Dryer keeps overheating. I've cleaned out all lint I can find in the traps, the exhaust vent leading out, and even popped the bottom panel off cleaning that area out. Is the motor...


By overheating I presume you mean the high temperature fuse is tripping.
The two most common causes are poor air flow and a bad themostat. If there's a good flow of air coming out of the exhaust vent then it's likely the thermostat. Expect to pay $20-30 plus labor for a new one.
