Question about Kenmore 64902 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Kenmore Dryer works for about 20 MINUTES, not seconds

My Kenmore dryer (4 to 5 years old) starts fine, heats fine, and then quits after about 20 minutes. When we try to turn it back on, the start button just buzzes. We have to wait about 30 minutes to get it to come back on, and then the same thing happens. Is this the same problem as the person whose dryer stays on 20 to 30 SECONDS, as opposed to my 20 to 30 MINUTES?

SD, doesn't sound like the same problem. Yours sounds more the like motor kicking out on overload and when it cools down you are able to start it again. The thermal fuse and high limit TCO are non resettable so you can rule them out. You are going to have to check some things out. Make sure the rollers and pulley are not binding. The blower wheel is not binding. These things will cause a drag on the drum and put a heavy load on the motor. Catriver...post back

Dryer will run for a second and sound three beeps and stops.

Sounds like the door switch has gone bad., but your description is confusing.

First, it takes a few minutes for you to feel the air blowing hot, particularly when the dryer is in a cold garage. The heating elements have to heat up the mass of the metal, and any clothes in the dryer.

The timer design is such that it can not speed up (the motor inside wont start running faster, due to it's electrical design.).

I am suspect that the door switch has failed for some reason, because reading between the lines, I think you are saying when you release the Start button, the dryer quits operating. If the door switch is bad, then it will cause that condition to happen.
