Question about Kenmore 400 6943 Dryer

1 Answer

All of a sudden the dryer is not running at all. We are going to have an electrician come out but would there be any other reason. We bought it just over a year ago but have only used it about 6 months. so the warranty is expired.

My beko dryer keeps tripping my electric box


We had similar problem with a different type dryer. Turned out to be a weak / older / bad breaker in the electrical panel. Every so often it would just trip the breaker for no reason.
The owner thought it was the dryer itself - and bought a new one - but problem remained.
In our case - solved by electrician putting in a new breaker in the panel for the dryer.
Could still be your dryer though, in your case.
Suggest:
- make sure dryer vent is not plugged by lint or other stuff.
[ When running, check that you've got good flow of hot air coming out the outside vent. If NO, could be a plugged up vent. We've had that too before. Disassemble, clear out vent tubes, check for plugged up screens, on the outside too, there is sometimes a screen in the outlet - it could get plugged. The screen is important - to keep out leaves & animals & stuff - but typically gets plugged up. Then dryer overheats and shuts itself off or trips the breaker. Also - you'll find that it takes longer to dry anything if the flow of air going out is restricted.]

Old dryer turns but does not heat, so bought a new one the same thing happens, can it be the electric plug?


A plug is easy to change, You can do it your self, Just make shure you turn your breaker off, Before you remove the old plug,Follow the wires on the old plug, End connect them to the same terminals on the new plug.Allso you can Write it down where they go,Before you disconect the wires from the old plug, Try the cheap route first, End that is to replace the old plug,

Just bought a dryer, can i put a 120v plug on it? My plugs are 120v.


No. Electric dryers run on 220vac
If you do not have a 220vac plug at the wall, you will neede an electrician to install one for you.

Hope this helps...

Replaced a 4 prong plug with a 3 on a Gallery


the reason for the four prongs is the same reason most electric ranges have them it is higher amperage and it is a heavier duty machine I suggest you put original plug back on and purchase the proper wiring and receptacle for it as well before you have a fire I strongly suggest you contact an electrician

Too many prongs on dryer power cord???


Do not just swap out the cord on the dryer. It has 4 prongs for a reason.

You will need to call a licensed electrician to change your outlet for the different service.
