You mayu have a broken belt if you take the cover off you should be able to see if the belt is still on there if not you can get a new one should be pretty cheap.

    do i take the top off or do i take the face of the dryer off to find the belt

  • par sims Nov 12, 2010

    You should be able to tell from the top but you may have to take off both it kinda depends it will be easier to take both off so you have more room. You may be able just to do it from the toop but may be more trouble that its worth. I would have to say its in your hands you should be able to make a desicion once you get in there see how much room you have. Thank you sorry it toook so long to respond i did not see your commet till today.

Kenmore 70 series dryer squeaked, heated, drum turned, then turned off and won't come back on--is it toast or worth fixing?


It all depends on how you look at things.
Comparatively speaking, dryers are a piece of cake.
However, with out mechanical ability and tools, it could be over your head.
You decide.
If you choose to fix it yourself, it could be done for a few dozen dollars.
Hiring a repair man could make it cheaper to buy a new one.
New parts are available through "Sears parts" on the internet.
Someone will need to take it all apart to see why it stopped on you. To do it yourself, you may also need an electrical testing meter.
Be blessed.

Hi, If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes it is still not working properly. if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip.... If you have an electric dryer, you can have many differentthings that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat. check outthis electric no heat tip...

Kenmore 70 dryer smells burnt


There could be dust settled on the motor inside from the few years in storage. Unplug and remove back, with a hoover brush **** off all dust but do this lightly as to not disturb any connections.
