Question about Kenmore 64602 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Electric dryer - Kenmore 110.96273100 Replaced timer - TMR 60 D4 Part number 9830714 Timer seems to run OK but no matter which quadrant it is set to - at the end of the cycle the timer motor apparently shuts off but the dryer motor keeps running. If I manually move the dial a small amount the dryer will shut off. It is a brand new timer, but could a contact not be making inside the timer?

Hi.

If the timer goes through the cycle as it should, but the motor stays on, that looks more like a contact in wiring rather than a faulty electronic control.
The fault can be potentially dangerous, repair is done reading Volts out from control board, Volts at motor, continuity between ends of wiring to see if there is a contact. For safety reason the repair must be done by a technician. The problem is not a common fault.

Call manufacturer at the service number listed on the manual and see what they think about the problem.

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?

Dryer timer counts off to fast


The only thing that I can think of is that you are using a dryer intended for Europe in the US. While they both run on 220V, the timer motor will be specific for the frequency of the country. The US uses 60 Hz. Europe uses 50 Hz.

To keep the explanation simplistic, your timer motor expect 50 electric (frequency) "beats" per second but instead is getting 60 beats per second. Your clock is turning an extra 12 seconds every minute.

Kenmore electric dryer won't stop running / no heat! 110.62512101


Without anymore info. is sounds like the timer motor on the setting controller (the main knob) is bad. The entire timer/control part is usually pricey but if its made to where you can just change the timer motor that will be less. If possible check the timer motor with a meter for continuity to be sure. the parts supplier will usually help you with this, if they are worth a shit.

Kenmore Dryer Timer does not advance


Timer resistance is way too low. You may have misswired the new timer. Basically, when the dryer motor is running, the timer motor gets voltage 115 volts.
