Question about Dryers

1 Answer

I have a kenmore dryer, model 41781142000. The timer will not turn off. It just keeps going. The dryer only turns on about every 10 minute for about 2 seconds and stops. When the timer gets to the off area it just keeps buzzing until I turn it. Even when I turn it to off the timer just keeps going. The separent on switch doesn't do anything. (maybe because the timer says its already on?). What could be the problem? Please help. I had to unplug it from the wall to stop the timer.

The gas turned off when the temperature is detectd by a thermal sensor. The timer is not working therefore the motor keeps running until you turned it off. The timer need to be replaced.

Dryer will only run for 10 minutes at a time


Hi, this is heat related. the timer module on this unit is overheating, in return, it is shutting down due to the heat generated but the faulty timer circuits. you will need to replace the timer device asap.

Kenmore Electric dryer runs on cool down forever.


Call the mfr and ask them about it. This problem may be pretty complicated. There may be a problem with your board that tells it to go to cool down. Can you set the timer for 45-60 minutes and it stay on heat for that long?

check for blocked vent tube.You should have a very strong flow coming out.If it is weak it will run badly.It is a common call.If its not weak air flow than run the dryer for at least 20 minutes.Open the door and if has no heat inside .......change the split coils. Please Rate This !!!

yes it does sound like the timer itself. sometimes if the timer has a bad contact then the timer will loose power as it goes around. by turning the timer around 1 time it resets the contact and it starts up again.

I am sorry to hear this, my name is Marc White, i am self employed and it seems as though you have a bad timer, bad timer will cause the timer not to go to the off position and blow your fuse......change your timer..


thanks
