Question about Kenmore 62722 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Stuck clothes Let me preface this by saying that the picture was close with this model number but I actually have 417-81142000 as the model number on my dryer. It's roughly 5 years old and it's ruining my clothes. They get stuck as the drum rotates and the heat burns them. Collars, the end of rags,'s not picky. The drum seems to be loose. It "leans" forward onto the front of the dryer causing a gap to form at the bottom of the drum that closes up as it leans into the top. The clothes get stuck as the gap closes and BAM burned and nasty. I'm sure there is something that holds the drum in place but simply removing the top did not reveal it to me.

How to receive the best dryer repair help on FixYa

There are a couple of things that you should include in your dryer repair question so you receive the quickest and most accurate answers.

1. Model Number

The model number can be located on the model/serial number tag that is located on the dryer.

Make sure you get the full model number from this tag and not the model number from the owners manual.

The model number from the owners manual only includes the first few digits of the full model number because they include that owners manual with many similar models of dryers.

With the full model number I'm able to look up factory service manuals, tech sheets, wiring diagrams, factory service pointers and so much more.

2. Detailed description of the problem

At the very least give a brief description of the problem you are having with your dryer.

Descriptions like 'My dryer don't work' is not very helpful.

Describe what is not working. For example is the not heating? Maybe the dryer is heating, but takes a long time to dry?

The more details you can give the better. Instead of saying 'The dryer is heating, but takes a long time to dry' you could go into more detail and say something like...

"I put a load of cloths in my dryer and set it on the auto dry cycle. When I went to take them out two hours later the dryer was still running. The cloths were still a bit damp too. Most of the time I can dry a load of cloths this size in one hour. Why is my dryer taking so long to dry?"

Following these couple tips can help you get a faster and more accurate reply to your dryer repair question.

I have a Kenmore Elite that is shutting off before the clothes are dry. I have unhooked the exhaust from it to make sure it was not from lint build up. It stops in the middle of drying, but the dial...

you have a thermostat thats going out, or the thermistor,, Basically, its a resistor whose resistance varies with temperature. The microprocessor in your dryer sees the change of resistance and turns the heat on/off as necessary. The thinking is that the conventional thermostat has two positions (closed and open) whereas the thermistor varies, giving a more accurate "picture" of what's actually going on., If by chance this is the electric 220v model, check to make sure its not losing one leg of the power feed

Runs hot air after awhile blow cool air

Model # tells me it is a convection oven. You can't dry clothes in a convection oven. they end up smelling like last nights dinner.

Please check the model #. there may be relay that controls the power to the heating element. this relay could be not functioning correctly, or it could be in the timer. maybe the thermostat that monitors the interior temperature is gone. It could be sticking closed. tough to say with the model number.

The dryer starts without using the start knob when you open and close the dryer door during a cycle. The dial is also not advancing during the dry cycle and the clothes are taking a long time to dry.

Assuming that you have GE dryer DBXR463ED0WW,
Sounds like there is a couple of problems there:
  1. The start switch is stuck and needs replacement/repair, part number WE4X881
  2. The clothes taking too long to dry may be due to a) clogged dryer vent; b) one or both heater coils burnt out; part numbers: WE11X10007 for restring coils only or WE11M23 for whole heater assembly c) problem with temperature selector switch, part number WE4M407
  3. There might be a problem with timer (WE4M271), but before replacing it I'd suggest taking care of the long dry problem first. In some models, timers are wired that way so the timer advances only when there is heat, so check the schematic.
There should be a schematic diagram inside the control panel, use it to for diagnosing the problems you described.

Good luck,
First Choice Appliance

Dryer model #le86000kq1...clothes are taking long time to dry..have to repeat drying process several times before clothes are actually dry

It may be as simple as dryer duct needs cleaning. I provide that service to several of my commercial customers in group homes. When the duct work is partially closed from build up it reduces dryer efficentcy. Also if you have flex vinyl duct work replece it, its a fire waiting to happen.

check to make sure the motor is actually running and not stuck, if the motor is stuck and no clothing is around the blower them check the motor to see if it is free, if it is and you turn the dryer on it locks up go get another motor the bearings are worn so that it locks up on start or after running a short time

When you open the door to check if the clothes are dry, the dryer keeps tumbling even with the door open.

This is commonly caused by a door switch that is shorted. The switch is located in the door frame opening and is activated (or closed) by a push button when the door is closed. This will enable the drive motor and heating circuits when the start button is pushed. When the door is opened, the switch no longer makes contact and the drive motor and heating circuits shut off. I would recommend checking to see if the push button the switch is just stuck (pushed in). You may have to replace the switch to correct the problem. If you would post your COMPLETE model number (located somewhere around the door opening) I can look to see how this switch is installed and any parts necessary to replace it. i hope this helps you.
