Question about Kenmore 63942 Dryer

1 Answer

We have a 700 Series Kenmore MOD 110.77751600 SER MU2303422 TYPE: DDOT-NAT-1206006-CV20 King Size Quiet PAK II. There is intermittent spots of soot on our white and light colored clothing. We have narrowed it down to the dryer, not the washer. We have cleaned the dryer thoroughly and I always clean the lint catcher. Still more soot.

    I neglected to say that my dryer also took over 2 hours to dry anything. Since the propane burner was installed the dryer works in 30 min. but the soot still remains.

This is from not enough HOT loads.

Fatty deposits gather between the basket and tub during COLD washes.

Then they are being released in large numbers when you do your whites on HOT.

It is recommended to do 1 HOT load per week.

Do an empty load with some degreaser added (like Goo-Gone) on the fullest/hottest setting you have.

    The black film lining on the inside of the dryer may be soot. Created by the gas not completely burning.

    Some possibilities for the condition may be a linted burner compartment. That's where the flames are visible and burn. Or there may be lint in the burner tube. Cleaning out these areas may resolve the problem.

    Some other rare possibilities could be excessive fuel, as a result of a recent fuel conversion. (???). Prior recent repair done???

    If the fuel type has changed, as a result of recently moving into another home? If so, the dryer will need to be converted to the present fuel used.


    Retail appliance parts dealers can also help determine what the most likely possible problem may be. They will need the make, model and serial numbers. Appliance parts dealers are an excellent source for original replacement parts and problem resolving matters. Dealers are listed in the phone book under appliances.

    Be sure the electrical power to the appliance is turned off, before attempting any repairs or services. Always check for gas leaks whenever moving the appliance and/or a service or repair includes any connection of a gas part.

    Also - please consider changing the rating given from 1 to 4THUMBS - as a 1 thumb is reserved for abusive or non-related abuse/spam. Most experts on FixYa answer only free questions, and a good rating percentage is our only source of fulfillment.

Kenmore 700 series dryer problems


This could be a few things. The first thing to check is your dryers vent, make sure its not clogged and check were it exits the house because sometimes nest are made in them. A clogged vent will prevent proper drying because the moisture can not escape and/or the heating element turns off due to overheating.
If the vent is clear, with dryer empty open the door and hold down the door switch (button that tells dryer door is closed) and turn on dryer, as its running watch the back area of drum were the vent with little holes is, within a few seconds you should start to see an orange glow in that area. If the orange glow starts then disappears within a few seconds it means your vent is clogged, if there is no orange glow at all then you have either a bad heating coil or bad high limit switches. I believe youtube has great how to videos on how to replace them, its not that hard if you have basic repair skills. Hope this helps you and your able to get it drying agian

You could have a blown fuse because of a clogged vent or a bad thermistor. A thermistor is used by electronic controls to measure temp changes inside the dryer. If the sensor is open then the brain does not have a clue how hot the dryer is. So it shuts down. Repair clinic has an excellent thermistor replacement video.
