SOURCE: During a busy family dinner


It is highly suggestive of a faulty turntable motor.The cost of the part is around $35 and you can get it at a local appliance parts dealer near you and all you do is open the bottom under the microwave and swap it out, its held by 2 small screws and the wires just plug on.

Be advised as i am not there, so providing you with the most noticeable problem.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

I have a Kenmore Ultra Fabric Care dryer. The lint filter is in front bottom at the door. I was cleaning out big chunks of lint and the tape fell down in. How do I open the front bottom plate to get in and...

if it's a regular whirlpool dryer get a screw driver,stick it into the space where the bottom and top door panel meet,slide the screw driver over a few inches and you should hit the clip that holds the bottom panel in place,push the screw driver in nad lift up a little and pull the panel out as you do this,then do this on the other side,and do this with the dryer unplugged.then remove the lint filter and look at the metal duct that the filter slides into,you'll see two 1/4 inch screws one on each side up top,remove them and pull out the duct,now you can clean it out.

Kenmore 700 series dryer doesn't seem to dry as quickly as it used to. Just want to clean it good but am not sure how to do that. Any guidance available on how to do a thorough cleaning on this dryer?

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have not taken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then you need to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should take place. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causes for your dryer to fail.

Have Kenmore 90 series elec. dryer...will start, but then cuts off and doesn't dry clothes. Trying to clean the lint out of it. We've taken all the screws out of the back, but can't get the back off!...

Hi-I just cleaned out mine. You take off the clamp that holds the exhaust duct from the bottom of the back of the dryer and you will be able to vacuum it out. Then you can remove the kickplate on the front of the dryer by lifting it hard and pull the top of it out. Then you can remove the lint trap holder once inside by unscrewing it, remove it and clean it out(take out the lint filter first). I vacuumed out the inside of the exposed bottom gently cause it was so full lint! Hope this helps!

How do I clean the lint out of the Kenmore Eite He3 past the lint screen?

Remove lint screen. Remove bottom front kick panel (usually three to four screws on very bottom front), There is a metal lint filter air duct assembly that has three to four screws holding it on. Usually one on each upper side of the duct, and one that has a bent metal bracket holding the bottom to the blower housing. This metal duct is dead center in the dryer under the door and ducts over to the bottom left. Remove the screws and pull the duct down and out. You can now clean this assembly. Needless to say, always unglug the dryer or turn it off at the circuit breaker before doing this job. I recommend that you do this at least once a year on the dryer, and clean out the washer lint and coin catcher at least once a year. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists.

Clean Dryer Lint Vent in Kenmore elite HE4

If you wish to clean the interior cabinet of the dryer follow these steps:

1. UNPLUG the dryer. Dangerous voltages are still present even with the dryer turned off.

2. Open the dryer door and remove the lint screen. IMPORTANT: You must remove the lint screen first in order to remove the blower fan housing.

3. Remove the lower toe panel directly below the dryer door by removing the screws under the bottom front edge of the panel. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then come off. NOTE: For better access, you can prop the front feet of the dryer up (a 2x4 works well).

4. Loosen the screws on the blower fan housing directly below the drum and remove. There's usually a small clip holding the cover in at the bottom that you may need to pull out to release. NOTE: You may also have to disconnect the auto dry sensor plug (yellow wires with white plug - use a small screwdriver to release the locking tabs) and/or ground wire to accommodate removal of the cover.

You should now have access to the dryer interior and the blower fan squirrel cage motor. Take the time to clean out the blower fan housing cover as well. A long bristle brush made for dryers works well at removing any lint inside the dryer in the hard to reach places, followed by vacuuming.

NOTE: After cleaning, you may experience a slight burning odor. This is normal as lint gets stirred up in the cleaning process and can settle on the heating components. The odor should dissipate after a short period of use.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Lint filter will not go back in kenmore soft series dryer

Lint could be preventing the screen from re-inserting into the slot. Unplug the dryer and use a coat hanger with some duct tape on the end looped around so that it attaches to the hanger and has a sticky side for the lint at the bottom. Remove lint and try re-inserting the screen.
