Kenmore elite stackable starts and after 30 seconds stops then after 2 minutes starts again with a huming sound


Your talking about the dryer right? If so, the blower is not working. Unit has "high temp" safeties built in to shut dryer off if overstepped. No blower to force air over heated coils, causes high temp causing unit to cease working until cooled down then it will start and stop again after another 30 sec.

I have a Kenmore gas dryer Model 74812200. It is no longer heating up. When I turn it on, I hear a clicking sound for about 30 seconds then it goes off. Then about a minute later I hear the clicking sound...


You would not hear the click if the ignitor was bad. It won't click until the flame sensor get heated up by the ignitor. So that tells me the thermal fuse ain't melted. I would say them coils on the gas valve are the problem. themobilian_2943.jpg

Dryer Heats for 30 Minutes then stops heating


Hello there :
what you are going to want to do is to troubleshoot the heating circuit
if you have a multimeter
there is a thermal Cut-Out switch that is connected to the heater box.) -simply unplug wires and take reading from the end connetors
your reading should be 0 ohms. and nothing else
Next check
a part called the Hi-Limit Thermostat that is connected to the heater box, it should be located closest to the heating element wire leads unplug the wires and take the reading across the 2 wire connections . this should give you a reading of 0 ohms and nothing else.
Now if any of these 2 parts are not in this range they need to be replaced and i would recommend that you replace them as a set cause if one usually goes out then the other one will soon follow ok

I hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards Michael

Kenmore Series 80 gas dryer, clothes take 3 hours to dry


Hello, This problem is going to be your safety valve coils...basically they get old and over time of heating then cooling develop a short when they heat up...It may appear the gas lights to start but then goes out until the safety valve coils cool back down. Here is a picture of the coils 57d5263.jpgThis The coils are mounted to the gas safety valve, This should solve your problem. Hope this helps, Please feel free to comment again if you have any further questions or concerns. Good Luck! Mike

Dryer #69501 taking long time to dry.


All you need for proper dry times are good airflow and correct heat. As long as you're satisfied with the airflow, pull the venting off the back of the dryer and with a glass bulb thermometer, measure the exhaust temps at the back of the dryer, for most models, the high heat setting should reach roughly 160F +/- 10% before cycling the heat off....check this at the beginning of the cycle, and again after it has been running for 20-30 minutes. If that checks ok, just remember the industry standard for a normal size load of clothing is 60 minutes. If not, please let me know with a re-post, and please include a full model number (should begin either 417 or 110).

Kenmore Dryer works for about 20 MINUTES, not seconds


SD, doesn't sound like the same problem. Yours sounds more the like motor kicking out on overload and when it cools down you are able to start it again. The thermal fuse and high limit TCO are non resettable so you can rule them out. You are going to have to check some things out. Make sure the rollers and pulley are not binding. The blower wheel is not binding. These things will cause a drag on the drum and put a heavy load on the motor. Catriver...post back
