On my kenmore dryer 970-c82062-00 I can get all 3 timers to start but the heated automatic dry portion does not time out.


that model number doesn't come up,you sure that isn't the serial number?also does the dryer have heat,when you run it on time dry the timer just counts down like a clock,when on auto or more or less the heat comes on until the dryer heats to temp. the heat shuts off and the timer will advance,when the heat comes back on the timer stops moving,it will do this until the clothes are dry,if you do have heat you could have a bad sensor or a bad cycling thermostat but you'll have to check it with a meter.send the model number and i can help you better.

Kenmore 68702 electric dryer heat doesnt shut off


If the dryer completes the cycle bit does not shut off, then you have to replace the timer control assembly.

If instead the dryer hangs at the middle of the cycle and does not advance, check the thermostate.

If the dryer does not heath and does not advance, then check the heating element, the thermostat and the fan.

Dryer doesnt work but i hear the timer working


Change your cycling thermostat. When your cycling thermostat fails, then the reponsibility of your heating element to shut down goes to the high-limit thermal shut off (closest to heat element) and the thermal fuse. Your cycling thermostat should shut down heat element when it detects about 140* air in the blower housing. Yours can't detect that anymore so it lets your dryer heat up and up till you blow the thermal. new cycling thermostat and thermal

My dryer was working fine the other day now it doesnt get hot,and its not drying my clothes


1st thing I always tell people to do is turn the 30 amp breakers off an then back on. Only the heating element is 240 volts, the motor is 120 volts. So if 1/2 the breaker trips the unit will run, but no heat. Try this first. Also depending on dryer if there are buttons for different heat settings make sure the button is all the way in. Some dryers if you hit several buttons at the same time will cause none to be selected and shut down the heat. Hope this helps.

2 dryers that run but have no heat


It sounds like the gas supply is not giving you any gas, as both have the exact same symptoms. You can see the glow coil getting red hot, then the safety shuts off after a it gets no gas. If you feel confident, shut off the valve in back coming from the wall, unscrew the line where it connects to the dryer. Turn the valve back on slowly, there should be gas pressure blow out of the line.

Does it appear that the timer is advancing? Try a new timer if not.
