Question about Kenmore 64892 Electric Dryer
Our Kenmore dryer (approx 6 yrs old) would continually shut off mid-cycle. After cleaning dismantling the motor compartment to vacume out all the lint I ran a load to test it. Everything was working great until I bumped the dryer. It shut off and wouldn't restart. I dismantled the wiring housing where the three prong is attached. It appears that the wiring wasn't tightened down to the "Terminal Block". I can only tighten the bolts to a certain point. There is alot of play underneath especially on right wire (which incidentally is stripped). 1) Is this an electrical hazard for my family? If it's connected and randomly loses power. 2) Is there a terminal block that would allow me to more securely tighten the wiring harness? Where can I order one of these? Thanks! Kenmore Dryer Model #60902990
If there are any lose wires connected to the dryer terminal block and there is any sign of current draw like black around it or if it just looks bad in general then yes it does pose a threat of a fire hazard or electrical hazard like shocking you when u touch the frame. There is a terminal block you can buy for it visit any part place with the model number and they can help you out hope this helps
