Dryer turns on but drum will not spin


Sounds like the belt is bad or the motor needs to be replaced. Unplug unit. When you open it up get a block of wood (a piece of 2x4 works) if your units are stacked on top of each other, pull the dryer towards you approx 2inches. You are going to push on the top of the dryer and insert the board underneath the dryer. The reason you pulled the dryer forward was to keep the dryer from slipping backwards while working on it. Now check the two bottom corners on the front of they dryer.occasionally there are screws holding the kick plate. Take these off, pull out and down and look for broken belts. Be sure to vacuum any loose lint while you have the unit open. Good luck.

My Kenmore Elite 110.62932100 won't tumble or heat up.


try the homes 240volt circuit breaker it may not show its tripped but one of the 2 phases can trip out, (just reset the breaker) and if this happens either the dryer drum motor will turn or the timer will run, but not both as these 2 components each use 1 of the 2 phases 120 volts to run,but the heating element needs both 120volt phases for 240volts for the heating element to heat,this is what your issue sounds like to me,hope this helps

Kenmore 68731 model 86873100 setting the drying to any of the drying methods, the dial does not move to automatically turn off the dryer.


You have a bad timer motor To verify you will get an ohm meter and remove the wires to the motor.

Check between the motor wires fer continuity. If you have continuity then the next test will verify if the gears are stripped on the motor. Apply power to the timer motor and see if it advances on its own. From looking at your model number I see nothing unusual about the timer.
to get to the[parts list I did 110.36873100. 110 is a the large prefix which ID's the dryer as being a whirlpool model. All kenmores ain't Whirlpool.

Kenmore Dryer Model #68202 just quit working. Set


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly

Things that will cause a dryer to just up and stop are:

1. Door switch
2. Motor Switch
3. Belt switch

The first thing to check is the door...

a. Verify the door remains closed and that if you gently tug on the door that it does NOT make the door switch click. Things like the switch actuation post get worn and clothes being dried press against the door and can cause the dryer to stop.

The second thing to check is the drum.

a. Reach inside the dryer and push the drum in either direction. If it moves easily with little resistance (Belt not turning the motor as drum is moved) then the belt has broken and the belt saftey switch has been activated causing the dryer to appear dead in all aspects.

The last thing that can cause it to just stop is a failure of the motor or motor switch. (Least suspects at this time)

Also go to the main Circuit breaker panel and physically turn off the dryer 30A Circuit breakers by pushing them against the off position and then back to the on position. This resets the breaker completely

You did not mention the age of this Dryer yet at this time I suspect a broken belt has tripped the belt safety switch.

Thanks for using FixYa!

Light works has power, won't turn dryer quit without warning. light inside drum is on, there is power to the plug. we had electrical problems (one intermittent dead leg from transformer, utility fixed it...


It sounds like the electrical problems fried the dryer motor. While dryer motors typically have some sort of motor protector, which shuts off the motor if it overheats, these devices self-reset.

Make sure the dryer-cord terminal screws are tight where the dryer cord attaches to the unit, typically behind a small steel panel on the back.

While it's remotely possible that a loose/disconnected terminal is to blame, I would bet that the loss-of-phase killed the motor.

If yours has electronic controls of some sort, that could also be an issue. But if your model is just the old timer-knob type, then I would think it's the motor.

My kenmore dryer wont heat up. model number 86873100. ive replaced the heating element and still no heat


There is one Safety Thermostat which will not reset Once it blows it is bad and must be replaced. The Safety Thermostats function is to stop the heat when the unit is to hot because of inadequate ventilation from a clogged filter or vent. I usually find the Safety Thermostat on the back of the drum since it will not rotate once you open the back of the dryer. It should look similar to a Power Transistor shaped like a disk with two mounting holes where it is screwed to the drum and two lead wires attached to it. Make sure when you check the resistance of the Safety Thermostat one lead is removed to isolate it from the rest of the circuit. If it reads open (no continuity) it is bad and needs replaced.
