My Kenmore 110.61062000 dryer is not working properly. It shuts off when it gets hot. After cool down it will restart but it make a dragging or buzzing noise when it first starts. Will run a full cycle or almost a full cycle but then has to cool down before it will start again. Lights will come on panel but it will not run in this condition.

Hello there:
this problem can be from 2 things
It overheats Usually when an electric dryer overheats it's because of a defective cycling thermostat or a clogged vent system. Clean any lint from the internal and external ductwork, and/or replace the cycling thermostat (read about cycling thermostats in "Drying is too slow," above). It seems to run forever If your dryer seems to run forever, it could be because of a clogged vent or internal ductwork. Your dryer may have an automatic cycle that turns off the dryer when the clothes are dry. It does this with a special thermostat or moisture-sensing system. Normally, this is what happens during an automatic cycle: The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a pre-set temperature--say 135 degrees. When the dryer reaches the pre-set temperature, the thermostat tells the timer to begin advancing. (If there's a moisture sensor, the timer advances only if the moisture content of the clothing is low enough.) The timer advances until the interior cools, then the thermostat tells the timer to stop advancing, and tells the dryer to start heating again. This cycle continues until the clothes are dry. But…if the vent is clogged, the dryer may never reach the proper operating temperature, so it doesn't send the signal to the timer and the dryer continues to run indefinitely, even if the clothes are completely dry. To fix the problem, clean the vent and/or internal ductwork.

Shuts off before clothes are dry, will restart and shut off again


Most likely, the operating thermostat has failed. When the dryer heats up, it gets too hot and the high limit thermostat turns the machine off. After it cools down, it will start again.

Unplug the machine! Check the thermostats for continuity with a multimeter. All thermostats should have continuity at room temperature.

My kenmore dryer seems to get very hot and then shut down. After a little while it will restart and then heat up and go off again


Most dryers have more than one thermostat. It sounds like your operating thermostat has failed and the high limit thermostat is working. It keeps the dryer from getting too hot when other parts fail. If the high limit thermostat fails, a thermal fuse should shut down the machine permanently to prevent a fire.

All thermostats will have continuity at room temperature.

I have a kennmore electric dryer all of a sudden it will only run about 10 minutes and shuts off when you try to restart it won't come back on you have to wait for a little while then it works but only for...


Sounds like it is getting too hot and the hi-temp safety switch opens up until it cools down again. Try vacuuming all of the vent pipes and hose. Remove the lint screen and wash it in hot water and detergent to clean it of fabric softener deposits. Hope this helps!
