Question about Kenmore Dryers

1 Answer

My dryer is a kenmore (electric)model # 110.63012101. I was using it just yesterday and it stopped in the middle of the cycle. I cleaned the lint vent and made sure that it was plugged in. I even checked the circut breaker, and it was fine. When I press the start buttonm I hear a clicking noise like it wants to do something, but it won't start.

I have the same problem as of yesterday.
Unplug Dryer and remove back panel from unit. Use shop vac to remove any and all dryer lint. Two Thermostats look to be central right and easily accessible. Sets of wires go to these two items along a long metal downward shaft (housing the heating elements.)

Parts available from Sears parts online for around $20.00 each.

I am not a professional by any means, but I was a mechanical engineer on a nuclear submarine's reactor plant and I did work for 6 months installing and conducting light repairs on Maytag appliances.

I have seen several websites with info that supports the problem being the thermostats. My guess is that I would treat this like replacing headlights for your car. Never replace just one, because the older one will not be as bright and will most likely fail in the near future. For the low cost and high effort to go back and replace a second thermostat...you might as well replace both at the same time.

Make sure all dryer lint is cleaned out of ducting.

I have a Kenmore HE2 dryer that was working just fine. My husband stopped it in the middle of it's cycle to check on the clothes. He cleaned the lint trap and put back. When he closed the door and tried to...


you can unplug it for about 30 minutes, but I would venture to guess that the sensor which is located below the lint trap(if you look down the trap you will see to screws) is dirty and need to be cleaned, clean gently as not to break the sensor. Good Luck Tim

I have a Kenmore Elite model 110.63022100. My dryer runs for 30 seconds to 1 minute before completely powering off. There is a burn smell when it stops.


Usually when an electric dryer overheats and shuts down, it's because of a defective cycling thermostat or a clogged vent system. Clean any lint from the internal and external ductwork, and/or replace the cycling thermostat.

Kenmore 80 series keeps shutting off. new motor and lint line cle


take off the vent line from the back of the dryer,if it runs fine your vent line is blocked or the outside vent where the flapper opens might have a cage on it to keep animals out of the line,it keeps the animals out but it's a lint trap.if you have a long run use a leaf blower and blow out the vent line,if that's ok check the t-stats on the heater box,

Kenmore Electric Dryer Series 80 110.86980800 burning smell


If this is a new element, this is normal until it has been used a few cycles. Use it and watch it carefully for a while. If it continues have a competent person to take the rear panel off and check for burnt wires or lint inside the unit.

I could not find the model number you listed. I also would be very concerned about over heating until we can find and locate the problem. Look inside the door and compare number with the on listed here at Fixya. Thanks, Sea Breeze
