The push-start switch in the dryer is probably bad. The contacts inside the switch get warped over time, causing the dryer to think you pressed Start again after it finishes a cycle. Replacing that switch should solve your problem. You can find the switch online at PartSelect.com if you know take the rear panel off the dryer and see what the switch looks like.

Kenmore 500 dryer used to dry a full load of cloths in 1 regular cycle of about 40 to 50 minutes. Now the same cloths are taking nearly 2 hours to dry.


I think I would check and see if the dryer vent tube is clogged or nearly clogged. It sounds to me like it is. Try this first, if its not, I will continue to try and solve this with you.

Kenmore dryer 110.86864100 - Where is the moisture sensor?


Ain't no moisture sensor. This is is not an electronic sensing machine. It uses another method to determine dryness. An orange wire connects to the base of the heating element. The timer motor is driven by power from it in auto dry. The timer motor is VERY slow. Slower than most dryer timer motors.As the clothes get dryer the heat is not needed so the element is turned off by the control thermostat which is mounted next to the skinny white fuse on the blower housing. This allows for the turtle like motor on the timer to advance. Once the clothes get to the point of dryness the heater stays off way longer and the timer motor advances on over to the cool down and carry on over to the end of cycle. So the clothes won't always be dry due to factors like lint buildup in the blower housing, venting to outside and so forth. having said that my mom bought a brand new Kenmore dryer and I set it on 55 minutes timed drying. At the end of that them clothes is still damp. I then set it to auto dry high heat and that usually gets em dry. I think the main probo with this dryer is the thermostat ain't set as high as older models to keep the heat at a moderate temp so that the limits won't blow on models in apts and such. Just a theory.
