Question about Dryers

1 Answer

My Kenmore electric dryer (110.86682100) blower needs replacement. I've removed the drum and I've removed all 4 screws holding the lint chute to the vent chassis (and the tow screws at the top of the lint chute), but the chute won't come out. It is very secure to the bottom of the dryer case, but I see no way to loosen anything further. My next step is to remove the baffle... but that doesnt look promising. Of course I can't find a manual anywhere online. Where am I missing a step here? Bruce

I dropped a toy down lint chute


There are 2 screws at either side of lint chute. Remove them. Make sure dryer is unplugged for next part. Remove back over by removing 1/4 drive screws. Looking at the back, on the left you will see the back of the lint chute. remove the four 1/4" screws around the bottom and lift and remove the chute. There you will find your toy. be careful around this as the edges are sharp.

The dryer is making a noise that sounds like baseball cards on a bycycle wheel! What is causing this noise?


you may have something in your lint chute. after removing the power take the venting off the back. reach in the hole and feel around if you can get your hand in there. if no you have to take out the lint screen. there is two screws under there take them out take the back panel off then go to the front top and carefully pry the front of the top up there is clips holding it down in front.swing it back against something like a wall and go to the back. to the left where the filter goes in there is four screws holding the lint chute on remove them and you can carefully swing it to the side. sometimes you need to remove the two screws holding the fusalage to the back. then check the blower area.some parts may be sharp so ware gloves. good luck!

Kenmore Dryer Model 110.646.02300 Blower, heater run. Drum does not turn. How do I access belt?


To access and/or replace the belt on this model dryer follow these steps:

1. UNPLUG the dryer and remove the lint screen.

2. Remove the two screws that were under the lint screen and lift the top panel.

3. Unplug the door switch conector plug and any ground wire that may be installed on the casing.

4. Locate the two screws that hold the front panel in place. There should be one screw on each side in the cabinet interior.

5. With the door shut, lean against the front panel and remove the two screws that hold it in place. Once the screws are removed, grasp the front panel at the top center and lift straight up to remove.

You should now have complete access to the dryer interior. If the belt is broken, this may cause the idler pulley (tensioner) to come loose. This is normal with no tension on the pulley to hold it in place. To install a new belt and re-install the pulley, follow these steps:

1. Loop the drive belt around the dryer drum with the groove side facing the drum. (Try to line the belt up with the wear marks already on the drum from the previous belt).

2. With the tensioner in your left hand, insert the clip end of the idler pulley into the grooves on the dryer bottom casing with the idler wheel pointing to your left. (The grooves are directly in front of the drive motor.)

3. While holding the tensioner in place, insert the belt UNDER the wheel with your right hand and pull it up and over the drive motor pulley.

If this does not explain it well enough, you can also verify by going to repairclinic.com. Click on the Repair Help link and look for the "Dryer Belt Diagrams" link under the Special Features section on the next page. Look for Whirlpool and refer to diagram H.

Once you have the belt installed, re-install the dryer front panel by holding it as you did previously. Line up the holes on the inside bottom edge of the front panel with the small mounting cleats on the front edge of the side panels. This can be done by yourself, but an assist may make it easier. Once you have the front panel in place, lean against it to hold it in place and install the mounting screws.

NOTE: Don't forget to reconnect the grounding wire and door switch connector plug. Without the door switch connected, the dryer will not run. Lower the top panel back in place and reinstall the two screws.

NOTE: Placing a piece of duct tape over the dryer vent chute will help safeguard against dropping anything down in the blower fan assembly. If you drop any screws down the chute, you will need to remove the dryer back panel to retrieve them.

If you still have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Dryer Problem Lint light keeps coming on and dryer will not work


When you say you vacumed the lint area, did you mean the lint catcher underneath where the lint screen sits? The most effective way is to remove the 2 1/4" screws on the bottom of the lower front panel. Once you have the panel down and off, you will see a lint chute (the part under the lint screen). Remove the lint screen, 2 more 1/4" screws towards the top of the lint chute on either side and a 1/4 screw on the bottom by the black clip and youcan remove it for best cleaning and also any possible build up around your blower wheel (the white looking fan underneath the lint chute) Can you run it sucessfully without the hose attached? It could indicate a problem between where the hose enters the wall and exits to the outside of the building. (it will get very hot, humid and a little linty doing this test, but it would eliminate any kind of blockage with the venting). When you washed you lint screen did you scrub it? I usually use soap water and an old tooth brush as you can actually get a clear coating on the screen without even being able to see it. How do your seals look? (put your head in the dryer drum and you will see a grey ring both in the rear and as you look back towards yourself) Are they dammaged? Have you cleaned your moisture sensors? This can cause a false error. While you have your head in the drum and are looking back towards the front, you should see 2 silver bars. Clean them off with the abrasive side of a sponge or a fine grit sand paper. If it is still malfuntioning, drop me a note back with your model and serial numbers (loacted just inside as you open the door) and I will see what else I can come up with.

Kenmore dryer (electric )


Almost always a thermal fuse.

If your lint screen is in the door, follow these directions:
Disconnect the power. Remove the lint screen. Slide a putty knife in between the toe panel and the bottom of the door three inches from either side. this will release the clips at the top. Tilt the toe panel out at the top and lift it off the clips on the bottom.
Remove the two 1/4 in screws at the top of the metal triangular box around the lint screen. There may be one more ***** near the bottom right of the box holding a gold bracket in place. Remove that ***** or lift the box off the black metal clip at the bottom.
You can now reach the thermal fuse. It's the white plastic part with two wires on it near the blower wheel. If you have an ohm meter, you can test it now. Or remove it (one 1/4 in *****) and take it to the parts store for testing.

If your lint screen is in the top of the machine, follow these directions:
Disconnect power. Remove the lint screen. Remove the two Phillips screws under the lint screen handle.
Pull the dryer away from the wall about 2 feet or more. Disconnect the vent pipe from the bottom of the dryer. Remove the nine 1/4 in screws holding the back panel on, along with the small metal cover. Lift and remove the back panel.
You can now reach the thermal fuse. It's the white plastic part with two wires, close to the blower wheel. If you have an ohm meter, you can test it now. Or remove it (one 1/4 in *****) and take it to the parts store for testing.
While you're back there, be sure to clean out the long metal box that the lint screen goes into (four more 1/4 inch screws.)
