Question about Kenmore 67082 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

My daughter's dryer comes on by itself ....came on last night at 1140 PM by itself...and ran by itself thru the night until 600 AM this morning. i'm thinking maybe the timing switch/mechnism is defective? She lives in another city....so it's a little hard for me to get over there to look at it. I believe it is a Kenmore.........but she's at school right now so i can't get that confirmed.......

You are correct. The timer has to be turning on your dryer. You can change out the timer or have your daughter leave the door open to the dryer this will disconnect the power to the element and the motor. You can use the door permanently or just until you get a chance to replace the timer. When replacing the timer you will need to disconnect the power to the dryer. Then remove the back plate behind the timer and selector switches. This plate is held on with 5/16 hex screws. Then remove the wires to the timer it will be a multiwire plug. Pull the knobs off the front of the timer they can be stubborn just take your time and use a piece of cloth between the flat blade screwdriver and the knob/dryer if needed. After removing the knobs you will see 2 or 3 usually phillips screws under the cap. Remove these screws andthe timer will come out. You can order a new timer on line or a good supply center is Marcone Appliance in St Louis Missouri. I used them for 30 years and was pleased with the prices and prompt service. When you open the panel look for frayed or burnt wires there is a chance of this but normally the dryers timer is the problem. You can trim and repair wires with **** connectors you can get these in a kit with the stripper/crimper pliers at any hardware store. Good luck and the door thing is so you can order the part and have the time to get to your daughters home.

My dryer has not been shutting off by itself. Last night the dryer ran all night. It should have stopped after 20m minutes. The clothes were very very warm. I'm concerned this could have started a fire....


Either the timer is faulty or the moisture sensor has failed. Do not use until you have had it checked.
What make/model is it? Hard to give advice without the info!

My car overheated due to a radiator hose break.


sounds like you blew a head gasket or cracked the head it will be expensive to repair. anytime you have white smoke coming out the exhaust you have water in the conbustion chamber.

Dirty coils might be your problem. You might have a refrigerant problem as well. Try cleaning it first then have a tech put gages on it. Doesn't sound too serious
