I have 9 yr old Kenmore elite dryer, model 110 82822101. Had Sears repair man out. dryer is clean, vent is good, moister senser is getting juice. worked for a load or 2, then problem returned. Dryer runs, heats, tumbles, but stops way before clothes are dry. this happens on both automatic and manual settings. Problem seems to be intermittent. wiring? short? HELP

    I don't know how this works!! My kenmore dryer problem cannot be just the heat sensers since the dryer shuts off early even on the manual settings. the Sears repairman cleaned the sensers.

Hi

I believe that everything else is fine rather it is the thermostat that is located inside the rear panel to the exhaust duct that is bad and should be replaced. If you want you can test this fuse for continuity and if bad replace it as it cannot be reset. If the fuse is fine then check the dryer belt and idler pulley...Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Well the dryer control thinks the clothes are dry. As the wet clothes rub against those moisture sensing bars the wetness discharges a capacitor on the dryness board. As the clothes get dry the wetness is no longer detected so the control thinks all is kosher and heads towards the finish line. Get some Windex and clean up those sensing bars. Put the Alabama shine and the Mississippi Gloss on them sensing bars then retry.

My Kenmore Elite HE4 dryer keeps shutting off after a few minutes.


are u saying it shuts down or just stops heating? if it shuts down u may have bad motor windings and or brushes and motor is burning out if its stops heating that is usually due to bad moister sensor, cycling thermostat ( which would not usually shut appliance off though), short in heating element, defective hi limit thermostat etc and of course u already said u cleaned lint and ducts? including the blower? if its blocked with lint u have a shut off issue

Professionally Dryer need to be taken apart some.

My Kenmore Elite dryer works except there is no heat to dry.I am looking for suggestions to repair. Thanks


There is a moister sensor in your dryer that detects any lint build up inside the exhaust vents. If any obstruction is inside the exhaust tubes this sensor will put the heat in the check mode. Inspect and clean thoroughly and see if it will heat up again

Sears Kenmore gas dryer not heating up


Remove all duct work and inspect for lint trapped inside. If you get a very good handful the moister sensor shuts down the burner automaticlly until the vents are cleaned thoroughly

Wrinkled closes


make sure your washer is spinning the water completley out of the clothes. winkles are caused by moister and if there is a lot of moister in the dryer than it will winkle.
