Question about Dryers

1 Answer

I have a Kenmore 70 Series Model/Stock NO 97576200 75762. The dryer will not start but when plugged in the inside light turns on. When i close the dryer door, the light stays on and nothing happens. My guess is i need to replace the door switch assembly or the latch assembly. Thank you for your help.

Kenmore 70 series model #97573200/stock # 75732. It's a gas dryer with an electric igniter. The problem is, dryer runs but there is no heat. I'm thinking there's a problem with the igniter? ...


if the ignitor is lighting up, the problem is going to be in the coils that are attached to the gas valve itself, heres what they look like http://www.applianceaid.com/images/2coilsgenaralgas.JPG

My Kenmore Series 70 Dryer will not start at all. No sensation of the start button doing anything when I push it. Thermal fuse continuity is good (0 ohms). Light goes off inside the dryer when I depress...


most likely its the push button that is bad. you can buy one from any appliance dealer that services a kenmore dryer. the part is a reasonable price. you also have to give them the model number and serial number. have a good day!!

Gas dryer starts blowing cold air after 5 minutes


This sounds like the dryer coils are failing. They tend to fail as they heat up. Here is a link that should help http://appliancehelponline.com/gdryertroublevideo.html

Kenmore 70 series dryer problem


HI. This may be an issue concerning the pressure switch that is located inside the rim of the actual door.

This switch activates the main drum motor when a cycle is selected when you are ready to dry your clothes. As soon as you select the desired cycle and you load the clothes and shut the door, the last thing to do is push the start switch. if the door pressure switch is malfunctioning, it will not allow you to start the dryer. it will simply not spin.

If you can visibly see the light inside the drum/basket while the door is closed, this will confirm the malfunctioning pressure switch that is located inside the inner part of the door rim.

Its located in this position so that the actual door can make contact with it, in return, applying pressure to close the switch and complete the circuit. this will cause the dryer to spin.

You stated that you can see the drum light shinning when the door is closed and, this will confirm my diagnosis. You can preform a hard reset just to make sure of this defect. Simply unplug this unit for 5 minutes or, shut down the circuit breaker for 5 minutes as well. Any methods will work. Once the 5 minutes are up, simply plug back in this unit and try to run a normal cycle. if this problem is still and issue, it will once again confirm a door pressure switch failure and you will need to replace the switch in this unit.

I would check the wire clips and connectors as well located on this switch for lose or worn contacts. this can be a problem spot as well.

Please rate and god bless:)

Signal


Kenmore 70 series. Model/Stock 66702692 Serial MG2402832

Cycle Signal works but then won't shut off until I open up the dryer door - it just keeps buzzing for hours. Also the dryer will turn on if I close the door ( and arrow is within a number and not on off) without pressing the start button. So if door is closed - the dryer will run or buzz (depending on arrow). How do I fix this?

Thank you
