Why dose my Kenmore elite dryer come on and then goes right back off and say f2


Dryer runs then shuts down wont start up for an hour:
Bad motor windings


IS IT GAS? IF SO Gas Dryer no heat: or shuts down soon after heating CHECK:

Thermal Fuse
If the air flow in the dryer is restricted, the temperature in the heating chamber can get hot enough to blow the thermal fuse. If the fuse blows, it cuts power to the coils that control the gas valve. The fuse is usually mounted to the exhaust duct just inside the back panel. You can check its continuity with an ohmmeter. If, after disconnecting the fuse, you get any reading other than 0 when you touch the leads of the meter to its terminals, it has blown. There's no way to restore it -- you'll have to install a replacement.

Igniter and Gas Valve Coils
TEST with a multi meter: The igniter is an electric conductor that works like the element in an electric heater, glowing hot enough to ignite gas when you turn on the dryer. This conductor can burn out, and when it does, it may glow, but it won't get hot enough to ignite the gas. At times it may give a reading of continuity yet fail mechanically and not get hot enough to ignite flame though it gets hot and glows and even may show Ohms or continuity ( close circuit) ?
Occasionally, the Gas safety valve and the electric coils that control the gas valve are defective -- they can wear out when the dryer gets old. When this happens, the igniter glows, but gas never enters the heating chamber or does not stay consistant.
Performing a continuity test on either part will help you determine whether or not you need to replace it. But the coils should also be tested for amount of resistance as well as Ohms. As they may be showing ohms yet not putting out enough resistance to keep proper gas pressure flowing. Most coils should show at least 1300 ohms ( GIVE OR TAKE 150 OHMS). Anything significantly less Thus u get an ignition but then it soon goes back out. The flame does not stay lit.

Air Flow and Heat
The motor that drives the tumbler also drives a fan that circulates air through the heating chamber and the tumbler and expels it through the vent. If the air can't circulate, perhaps because of lint blockage, the heating chamber overheats, which prompts the cycling thermostat to turn off the gas. The thermostat resets when the chamber cools, but the chamber heats up quickly and the thermostat again shuts off the gas. The result is that the temperature in the tumbler doesn't stay hot, and your clothes take longer to dry, if they get dry at all.

Warning
There's a big difference between a dryer that doesn't heat up at all and one that just doesn't get hot enough to dry your clothes. In the first instance, the problem is usually a defective part, and things should be back to normal after you replace it. In the second instance, the problem is caused by restricted air flow, and you need to clear the lint filter and vents and take steps to prevent lint build-up. If you don't, you'll use more energy for drying than you need and the dryer may continue to malfunction. Worse, you may have a dryer fire.

My kenmore 750 series gas dryer wont heat


Here is the problem I think you have. Weak aged solenoids.
If a dryer produces some heat then their are 2 scenarios. It is clogged with lint, or the gas operator solenoids are getting hot and failing.Here is 2 of my home made videos. One shows basically before and after clean up and the other shows how to check and replace them coils:

I hav a kenmore 11066652501 dryer...I have replaced the thermal fuse twice and have cleaned out all the lint vents and it worked for about 15 minutes and quit. the heat works but it wont turn


You may need a new drum motor . It is probably burned out. ALso be certain you check you hose for the lint to escape .
I do not use high heat because it does get "too hot" and cannot be good for the dryer .

My kenmore dryer will not heat up and timer will not shut off on auto


`check ur restricted vent, or bad coils, is the vent is restricted the heat would built , but won't exit the machine, the gas valve shuts off, an wont come back on till it cools down then the same thing will happen over an over and that wont let the timmer advance an finish its cycle, take the backvent off an turn ur leaf blower an blow the lint off the duct, new houses with a roof vent specially here in chicago have problems when the lint an ice combine create a big vent problem. if you have a roof vent, u can remove the screen on the vent at the roof, birds will not go in,seeking for heat, because the new dryers dont have a stand by pilot like the old ones, so they don't provide heat 24/7, and when they inuse they blow so much air is impossible for a bird to stand the temp an the speed of the hot air

Dryer shuts off after about 5-10 minutes of running. The top of the dryer is hot.


Howdy: There is a thermostat inside the unit in the back. If this has lint clinging to it, it will shut off unit. Also the firing ignitor has two soleniods
that stick and turns off unit too early. But with the top of dryer hot I would say the heat always stays on and the thermostat shuts off ignitor. The firing should be a pulse type heat, not a constant heat. Good luck - Doug

Dryer does not dry


Problem is likely:

- heating element, or
