Question about Kenmore 5.7 cu. ft. Coin Operated Electric Dryer
Dryer won't come on at all. Checked breaker- not the problem.
I take the timed approach with appliance problems. If they occur 10 years after purchase, I buy a new one. If five years, I call a repair service and measure the cost of repair against the purchase of a replacement. If one year or less after purchase, I pile the expensive, offending, useless lump of an example of the decline of American workmanship into the back of my pickup and push it out on the doorstep of the store where I purchased it.
I find this method to be the most cost-effective and least troubling. And costs me about the same as calling the repair service.
In fact, right now I'm loading up my Kenmore Elite Oasis 6705, purchased March 13, 2007, (note that the problem began one month AFTER the warranty ran out) in the back of my pickup and I will make at quick stop at Sears to push it off the back of my truck (I find if I don't stop, but keep the truck rolling it makes for a much louder and attention grabbing drop off) then find the nearest hardware store so I can purchase some strong nylon line to string across my backyard so I can dry my clothes. I also purchase a bit of extra line so that I have enough to string up any Sears or Kenmore representatives who might stop by to inquire about the appliance they found on their doorstep.

Starting in early 2002, the capacity sizes were changed around a little bit. A normal sized washer now all have the same sized tubs (pretty much) in the 110 series (Whirlpool Manufactured) washers. The capacity is now rated somewhat by the agitator action the washer comes with. Depending on the type of agitator you have, will determine the capacity. King size capacity means you have a pretty good capacity (size wise) than others. You have normal capacity, large capacity, super capacity, king capacity, and I even think they have canyon (yes canyon) capacity. Capacity sizes dont really mean to much though. In order for you clothes to get clean, the must have room in the tub to move. The must be able to float up, then get pulled down by agitator action. That should determine the size of what goes in the washer. Always use same type clothing when doing laundry (i.e. towels with towels, sheets with sheets, etc, this will keep the load balanced better). Watch what you load, comforters are ok (per manufactures ok) but I do not tlike the idea unless its a front loader, and only by itself. Let me know if this helps you out any.

My dryer is doing the same thing... I wonder if this dryer needs to be recalled.... I did call a dryer technician from sears- 1-80-469-4663, ask customer service for a dryer tech, and she told me to unplug my machine for a minute or two and plug it back in and press cancel 2 times, this resets the computer inside, so I did, and guess what, almost immediately it started flashing CF 01,02,03- the lady said that I have a electronic control board problem and she could set up an appointment to have a tech come and figure it out for me, and she could sell me a warrenty for 2100 bucks.... good job sears! You made great appliances and when they break people are out tons of money!!!!
Keep up the good work!

you have a clogged wall vent or clogged dryer vent or a clogged lint trap,you are trapping all the hot wet air in the dryer and that's why it's taking so lont to dry-mike
