Question about Kenmore 87572 Dryer

Open Question

My Kenmore Dryer model number 11.8756*8757*8758 will not run. It will power on and count the minutes, but nothing else happens. The drum doesn't turn nor does it inject in air.

SOURCE: kenmore gas dryer after 5 to 10 min. later no more heat

Yup, shortly after I posted this question I was able to find that it was indeed the valve coils. Very easy to get to and replace. Cheap too! Got both of them for about $20 thru Same parts would have cost about $70 thru Sears direct.

Patrick, they are located on the burner unit under the drum in the front left. You can get a diagram of the burner unit by looking up Parts for your model # at

Only tricky thing is you may need to have someone help hold the tumbler in place when you put the belt back on the motor. Personally I found it easier to use two hands to manipulate the belt around the motor and tension bracket and have my wife hold the drum in place rather than to try and balance it myself.

Good luck!

SOURCE: I have a Kenmore model 80 dryer. It turns on

Hello there:
Thisis caused by a belt that has either broke or the motor for the belt has failed i would remove the back panel of the dryer to axcess the motor and the belt and inspect to see if the belt has broke if not than i would have the motor checked out or there may be a capacitor for the motor that has failed.
If you feel that you can do the repairs i would suggest doing it cause you would save your self a lot of money doint it your self ok
Hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards michael

SOURCE: Kenmore Dryer 70 series Problem:

Sounds like your door switch has gone bad. This is a very simple and ever so easy repair. It will require you to access the internal workings of your dryer. There are step by step instructions on this website of "how to open your dryer" that are really good. A quick search should locate them. Usually a dryer switch is just a couple of screws and a molex (special type of plastic molded electrical connection) or a few spade/wire terminal connections. Make sure the dryer is unplugged before you work on the internal areas or the control panel. Popping the top up is usually done with either a screw driver or putty knife. You should be able to see a small portion of (2) clips where the top meets the rest of the body in the front. A bit of effort is required to get these clips to release. Once open, you will probably have two screws--1 on each side at the top left and right just down a short ways from the top. Removing these should allow the front to come off. Be careful when you remove this. The drum usually rides on the front portion of the dryer and will shift down when the front is removed. Just make sure when you put it back on that it is seated where it should be. The dryer front/door section should lift up off hinges at the bottom. Some of these have screws that attach at the bottom front. You may have to remove these. Once you have the front door off, the door switch should be on the back of the front panel of the dryer. From there it should be a matter of a few screws. If you have a meter, you can check if for continuity. If it has none and the dryer door is still closed, it needs to be replaced. Look for the link for dryer access on here if your dryer is a bit different. A door switch is only about $10 - $20 dollars on line. Make sure you have your model and serial number handy. It is either on the back or on the inside of the dryer door/lip. Hope this helps.

Kenmore Heavy Duty Plus Dryer 86273100 drum won't spin

How could the belt be in working order if the drum doesn't spin? Check to see if the belt has come off the motor. If the motor runs but your dryer doesn't spin, the belt is off. If the motor runs with the belt on but it still won't spin then you'll have a lot of black smoke because your drum is jammed. In other words, there are a number of things that could be wrong, but not very many.

Dryer stops before clothes are dry...have to wait a few minutes before it will start again but only stays running for a short time.

if the dryer is running and then the motor stops when it gets hot it sounds like you have a bad motor.when was the last time you cleaned out the dryer and vent line?also i need the model number,on some kenmore dryers they have even heat that can cause this to happen if it's in your machine the timer will count down faster than normal and shut down ,or you could have a bad thermister so send the model number and i can check it out for you.

4E problem on kenmore dryer

Same problem, no panel lights, nothing, but drum light works. Several postings on othe sites say the cuicuitry board is faulty. Sears, in the Phillippines, or India, do notheing. Paid lots for this dryer, live alone and really don't abuse it or even use it that much. Is the there a class action suit maybe? all I want is for it to work!
