Question about Kenmore 98702 Stacked Washer/Dryer

1 Answer

Kenmore 93802 stackable. Dryer runs about 15 seconds and then circuit flips (so dryer turns off). Have checked the flexible "duct" to the interior vent and all is clear. Same with the opening outside - no blockages. Try to run dryer while holding the duct (so that air is just blowing into the room) and same happens so I don't think anything blocking air, which is what Repairman said problem was. Stumped!

A timer motor advances the timer; if the timer does not advance, you can safely conclude the timer motor is bad, and replace the timer.

hi..
When your dryer drum isn’t turning anymore, it’s usually a broken belt. Tearing the dryer apart is usually straight-forward enough but stringing the new belt on the motor and idler pulley can be tricky. The Complete Encyclopedia of Dryer Belt Configurations shows the belt configurations for almost every dryer brand you can think of.

this will fix ur problem..
thank u rate me

My suspicion is that the damper on the dryer vent is not completely closing, allowing the cold air to pass into the house. Also check to see if the vent hose is sealed to the vent with duct tape or steel tape.

Hi,
Either the elements have blown, or it could be a device called a thermal overload which has popped. (There may also be a loose wire which connects to the heating elements). Have your drier checked out by a good handyman or technician.
Best wishes,

Frigidaire fex831fs2 stackable dryer takes too long to dry and leaves clothes damp


Good Afternoon Famties4,

I understand that the dryer portion of your laundry center, model#FEX831FS2, takes too long to dry, even after making sure the vents are clear. First, I suggest checking the exhaust duct, making sure it is at least 4 inches in diameter and made of rigid or flexible metal. Secondly, make sure the duct has no more than two 90 degree bends and must not exceed length listed in the INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS. Lastly, make sure your dryer is connected to a 240 volt circuit. Drying time will be 20% longer than drying on a 240 volt circuit. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your dryer status has changed successfully.

-Best Regards-

Kenmore stackable washer/dryer. Model 417.93802209. Dryer will run but won't heat. Flipped breaker. Suggestions?


Possible that the heating element has burnt out, or that the thermostat that controls the element is defective. If you have a low or warm setting try that also as it may use a different element? Good luck.

try two things. first, run it empty without the lint filter installed. if it gives you the same error message, install the filter, but disconnect the flexible duct connected to the back of the dryer. try it again. if it still wont work, you will have to get it serviced and cleaned out. if it works with the ducting removed from the back, your dryer duct is clogged up. check your yellow pages for dryer duct cleaning. The lint filter error message is just your machines way of saying it is not getting enough air flow. It can be caused by a clogged duct also.

My maytag dryer run for 10 min. and then stop. wont turn on untill cool down


Hello- The dryer may be shutting down because it senses low air flow or too much heat build-up. I would check the venting behind the dryer and make sure the flexible duct is not crimped or crushed, if it is remove it and replace (you can get this at most hardware stores). If that looks ok turn the dryer on and go outside to where the vent exits the house, the air flow should be strong. If you feel little air flow you may need to have a duct cleaning service out to get the lint build-up out, especially if the duct runs through the wall a long distance and makes many turns. You can also test if this is the issue by removing the flexible vent from the back of the dryer and running it; be aware you will get some lint in the room. If it is still shutting down you should have someone out to diagnose it, there may be a thermostat issue. Hope this helps, best regards.

Kenmore he3 dryer check lint screen flashes and dryer wont start. Yes checked lint screen


Hi
Try unplugging it or turning off the power at the breaker panel. This should reset the controls.
Weather this works or not, make sure that the whole dryer vent is clear. often we find a clog in the flexible line, or where the duct exits the house. also there are situations where the clogged duct caused a lint plug inside the dryer. Assuming you can reset the controls, you can run the dryer for a minute with the hose unhooked to see if you are venting the right amount of air.
OR
It is possible the heating element has gone out or one of the thermal disk has blown its fuse. If you turn the dryer on holding the button that is depressed when the door is closed so that the dryer will run you should be able to see if the heating element is getting hot because it should show as a red glow. If this is not happening then most more than likely the heating element has gone out. Most of the time they are fairly easy to replace.
OR
a simple thing is that When the lights are flashing, it is an error code, which indicates a problem with the door switch. Could be a loose connection there.

Kenmore 64942300 Electric Dryer runs, no heat


This may seem too simple of an answer based on your extensive troubleshooting thus far, but the most common reason for cold air running of any electric dryer is a broken heater coil. This is simply a coil of wire that is heated to warm the air in the fan duct. These often overheat and break if the vent duct is blocked, too long, or has odd bends that can restrict flow. Recommend replacing heater coil and use smooth wall vent pipe. Avoid coil type flexible duct.

Kenmore Dryer Model 110.73952102


Yes, It is usually on the heating element tube. Don't just replace the fuse. You must find out what caused it to blow. You probablly have restricted air flow . Usually this is a clogged duct pipe or outside vent. This can also be caused by trying to operate the dryer with the door open. Before replacing the fuse, take the duct off the back of the dryer. Clean out what lint you can , turn on the dryer and see if you get good air flow. Next check the vent pipe for clogging and check the outside damper. DO NOT USE FLEXIBLE PLACTIC DUCT PIPE. It is a fire hazard and almost always clogs up fast. Another possible solution is that if it's an electric dryer, If the element burns out it can short out against the frame and cause it to overheat.

Dryer takes too long to dry


This complaint is most often caused by the dryer's vent being blocked with lint. Dryers need to be properly vented, otherwise the moisture in the air can't be properly carried away. Vents that go out the roof are particularly problematic-- the dryer may take far too long to dry clothes and the vent pipe may even drip water that can't be exhausted. Minimum size for a dryer's roof vent is 4 inches. If your dryer has chronically poor drying, if possible, have the vent moved to where it exits a house wall near the dryer. The vent should be made of 4-inch aluminum rigid duct and elbows or, where absolutely necessary, flexible metal (but not flexible thin foil). Do not use flexible plastic duct-- it restricts air flow and is combustible. The dryer should vent outside--never into a crawl space, wall, ceiling chimney, or other type of flue. The bottom of the exhaust hood should be located at least 12 inches above the ground. Here is what to do: 1) Check the lint trap and clean it. 2) Be sure the dryer isn't pushed so close to the wall that it pinches off the airflow through the vent's air duct hose. 3) Check the point where the air duct vents away from the house. Be sure plants, birds, or anything else hasn't blocked it. If the duct vents out the roof, it could easily be blocked with lint. 4) Disconnect the air duct hose from the back of the gas dryer and clean out built-up lint. Note: For safety, first turn off the gas to the dryer, then unplug the dryer; this means you will have to re-light the pilot light later if the dryer has one (read your owner?s manual for proper re-lighting techniques). 5) If necessary, clean out the ductwork from the dryer to the exterior wall where it vents; this may involve disconnecting sections. One trick that sometimes makes this job easier (but only if the dryer duct is fastened firmly at all connection points) is to blow lint and debris through the duct and out the exterior wall vent, using an electric leaf blower.
