Question about Kenmore 63942 Dryer

Open Question

My Kenmore 80 Series Dryer Model 110.96584120 has 4 temperature selections: low, medium, medium-high, and high. No matter which setting is selected on the switch, the dryer seems to only be drying on high. Is the problem in the temp selector switch or somewhere else?

Could be the heat switch on the motor or a grounded heat element

Hi,

In the Settings menu, select Sounds. The Sounds menu appears in the display.
Select the Master Volume sub-menu which allows you to set the default volume for incoming
calls, messages and alarms. You can set the volume to Silence All, Vibrate, Low, Low/Medium, Medium, Medium/High, or High. The Vib. on soft key allows you select vibrate in addition to the sound.

Hope this helps. If so, please rate this solution.

-best regards,

Dryer is shrinking clothes on low heat


is this a traditional kenmore dryer. Check your temperature selection switch in your counsel. It should have a small resistor on it. It should read about 10 ohms. if not than change the switch. That resistor is used when you set your selector on low heat. if it checks oout ok, the i would check your thermostat on the bottom panel. Like i said if this is a traditional kenmore dryer. You didnt really give a model number or brand of dryer. but if its a kenmore, try checking it out with a multi meter.

Kenmore dryer only heats on delicate


I am not familiar with this particular dryer but most of the Kenmore family use different thermostats for different temperature. They are usually located in the rear and are clustered on the blower housing. Take the two wires off one thermostat at a time and test. It should be closed when cold if not replace it (Usually around $15 each) You probably have a very dangerous clogged exhaust. This will cause thermostats to fail. and can cause a fire. CLEAN It out and dont use flexible plastic duct pipe. The other cause of thermostat failure is if the washer doesn't spin properly and the clothes are too wet when dried. A properly operating dryer will not take much longer than 45 minutes max to dry a load.

It looks like you would enter the cooking time then press POWER 1 to 10 times. Once = 100%, twice = 90%, thrice = 80%, and so on, and "PL#" will appear in the display where "#" is the selected power level. On some models, twice = 80% and thrice = 60%, etc. and "80%", or "60%", etc., will appear in the display. Then press START. Did that do it?
