Question about Kenmore 67082 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

At start up on my elite oasis dryer there is a squealing sound. It only lasted for a few seconds at first. Last night I noticed the sound continued for about 30 seconds before it stopped making the squealing noise. So it appears to be getting worse. I tried it again later on in the evening with very few clothes in it to see if maybe if it was the belt it would not slip with a lighter load. But it still made the noise. Please give me some advice on what the problem might be. Thanks, Greg

Greg, it sounds like an issue with the belt tensioner pulley. It is one of the only parts that can and will make a little noise at first and then quiet down after it gets heated up from use.
If you post the complete model number from the dryer I can look up the breakdown and give you a part number and some step-by step instructions on how to replace it (if your up for the task).
Thanks, and good luck!

Dryer turns on then stops in 5 seconds and flashes F40 code. shuts down


Check lint filter, check vent outlet at dryer, and continue on through vent checking for lint to the exit area of the vent. Keeping the vent lint free saves energy and reduces drying time.

The Kenmore Elite Oasis Steam Dryer - almost new - worked well last week. This week no power to dryer; 220volts is present to dryer. Any ideas?


You might want to take a look at the vent pipe for lint. If the exhaust thernistor detects high temps it shuts down the dryer. Bravos service manual (same as oasis)

My Kenmore Elite dryer has begun to squeal VERY loudly when started as of last night! I stopped using it. We have owned it from brand new for four years. Any ideas? My husband is very handy. Thank...


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication, or maybe your drum belt has slipped off of the idler arm pulley.
Check the belt condition for wear also.
Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go
to reinstall the belt.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots
or wear on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably
only need lubrication.
Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil.
Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.

Kenmore Elite Oasis Model# 110.27087603


I had a very similar problem with my Oasis He Washer 110.27087603. The machine was randomly cycling through different water temperature indication lights. It would repeatedly beep and not allow a wash cycle to complete. Fixya.com alerted me to the "upgrade" to the electronic control W10112112 to W10189966. My machine was scheduled service and a Sears tech replaced that board. My problem with random cycling continued and the tech stated the touch panel electronics; part # 8564392 would fix the problem. He said one of the microswitches on the panel was probably stuck and not allowing the machine to enter a wash cycle. I found the 8564392 panel at http://www.prosupplyco.com/search.aspx?find=8564392 for a very reasonable price. Realize that Whirlpool parts are Whirlpool parts and Sears doesn't hold the only key to them.
