Kenmore 80 Series of dryers are consumer grade dryers for home use. As
with most home appliances, the Kenmore 80 series dryers will
occasionally not work as intended. If a problem occurs with your dryer,
however, you do not necessarily need it serviced by a technician. You
can attempt to troubleshoot and fix any problems with your dryer before
contacting a technician.
Kenmore 80 Series dryers may not run for several reasons. First, make
sure that the power cord is plugged into a working power outlet. You
may need to plug a different device into the outlet to check that it is
receiving power. If the second device does not run on the power outlet,
you may have blown a fuse or tripped a circuit breaker. Check your fuse
box or circuit breaker box and make the change as needed. Next, make sure that the dryer door is fully shut. The dryer will not run with the door ajar. Finally,
check that the "Start" button was fully pressed and that a cycle was
chosen on the machine. If you do not choose a cycle for the dryer, it
will not run.
If your Kenmore 80 Series dryer does not heat up during use, check that
a heat cycle has been chosen for the load. There are several different
dryer cycles you can choose, some of which do not use heat. Make sure
that you have chosen a heated cycle. As
above, check that you have not blown a fuse or tripped a circuit
breaker. The dryer may use more than one fuse or breaker: one is used
to power the drum, and the other for the heating element. Make sure
that both fuses or breakers are in working order.
There may be times when Kenmore Series 80 dryers do not fully dry your
clothes. When this occurs, check the lint screen and clear out any
lint. The air may not flow as well if the lint screen is clogged. Next,
check to see if the exhaust vent is clogged. Lint and other particles
may clog the exhaust vent over time, restricting air flow and making it
more difficult to dry your clothes. To check the vent, run the dryer
and hold your hand under the vent. If you do not feel any air flow,
clean or replace the vent. If you used cold water to rinse the
clothes it may take longer than normal to dry. The same is true if the
load of laundry is very wet or is filled with items that are very
absorbent. Finally, check the load size. The more clothes in the
load the longer it will take to dry. If you want to reduce drying time,
separate the clothes into piles of light and heavy items and dry them

press and hold on off button till the display panel lights up.Then press and hold the on/off button and the start /cancel button together.You will now reset the washing machine settings.And just pick your cycle again
Things that could stop a electric dryer from heating: - house fuse or breaker ( needs two of them ), heating element, burnt wire, thermostat(s), thermal fuse ( not all models ), motor heat switch, timer, selector switch, burnt power cord/plug. A ohm meter test for these parts is here.
Hi everyone. I would be grateful for any help. I have a Miele Novotronic T220 tumble dryer. I cannot switch the thing on! The finish lamp is lit continually, and I cannot start another drying cycle. I have unplugged the machine and pressed the start button again, but nothing happens. Has anyone got any ideas for a technophobe.
Is it that you want to dry only or wash 'n' dry straight through in one go?
If it's to dry only...
1. Switch the machine on
2. Press the Auto Dry or Timed Dry button until the neon light illuminates.
3. For Auto Dry press the button for 2 seconds to achieve the neon indicator to light up. then press the button until the glow is beside the level of drying you require.
4. For Timed Dry press the button until the time you require is in the display.
5. Press the Start/Pause key to start the cycle
Please note: in the Timed dry any time above 60 minutes will be displayed as 70, 75, 80, 85 etc. but then will be shown as 1:10, 1:15, 1:20, 1:25.
For wash 'n' dry straight through...
1. Switch the machine on.
2. Select the fabric.
3. Change the temperature or spin speed if necessary.
4. Select any extra options if required.
5. Follow the above to achieve the drying accompanied by the wash.
6. Then press the Start/Pause button to get the cycle under way.
There is a downloadable PDF of the user manual for this machine on the Service Force website, if you require the programming sequence guide, which, is covered in the user manual, should this explanation prove unhelpful.
I got the thing (wd-12331ad) to dry without having to run a wash first!
Also, I seemed to get it to do a spin only run...
The way to get it to dry :
(for a set time - I've not managed to get any of the auto-dry settings to work)
from machine being off:
> press the power button.
> press the "Dry" button 'til "Time" lights up
>>> press "Dry" again to get the desired duration
> press the spin button 'til the spin speed shows blank/ the RPM light goes out.
> press "Start/Pause"
It will then dry for the number of minutes specified!
Not perfect, I know but that's serious progress from where I was before; having to re-run a wash cycle to get it to dry anything...
Something to note:
- The machine worryingly sounds like it's starting to fill with water when you start the "Just Dry" program which scared me at first. BUT it stops after a second or so (I think it's just cleaning out the detergent tray so it doesn't bake any leftover powder)
For "spin only" from machine being off:
> press the power button.
> press the spin button
>>> if you press "Start/Pause" now you get a 13 minute 1200 spin cycle
>>> press the spin button again and then "Start/Pause", it seems to drain itself for 1 minute
>>> pressing spin repeatedly, cycles through the spin speeds.
Things I don't know:
- I don't know if you can combine spin and heat.
- I don't know whether the auto-dry programs are available
- I don't know what other programs are available from the "Dry"/"Spin" buttons
...So if anyone does any experimenting, please let us know the results, you never know, we might end up with a half way useful set of instructions! I'm starting to think the machine's not half as bad as it seems when following the manual alone.
