Question about Kenmore 64952 Electric Dryer

2 Answers

Kenmore Elite model 110.63932101

My dryer is running and heating. However it cuts off after just 5-10 minutes of running sometimes it does run longer. The sensor does not seem to be sensing that the clothes are still wet and need to run a full cycle.

    I have the same problem! Only my dryer won't run but a few seconds sometimes. It seems to be different every time I use it, like the sensor isn't working. At times it shuts off right after the Start button starts it! Frustrating!! But I will get my husband to ck. it out w/your suggestions BEFORE I call for service (I've been messing w/it for awhile, and we have checked some of the things before and not seen anything amiss). Will let you know if we can fix it!!

Some models have a thermistor that also senses moisture in the exhaust air. If you remove the kick panel on the bottom it is a black sort of oval shaped part with 2 small wires on top. It is right on the blower housing. you might try taking a resistance check on it. All kenmores have a tech sheet behind the top control panel. just remove the rear cover and it is in there. It will tell you what the resistance should be. But my gut feeling is if the dryer is heating up its not a heat problem or any kind of sensor. I think you have a vent problem. Check and see if there is a good hard flow out the vent. If not replace the dryer vent and also remove the front panel of the dryer and clean out the part wher the lint filter go's in and also the blower wheel itself. This style dryer has a bad habbit of clogging up in the 2 places I decribed. Good luck

There is a sensor bar usually two on the inside of the dryer either in the front where the lint trap is or in the back right corner u will have to take the machine apart to ensure that the wire is firmly connected to thsoe sensor bars that would be the first thing i would recommend u check symptoms are itruns for about ten minutes and cuts off and clothes are still damp but time cycle works fine.

Frigidaire dryer heating up but not completing cycle.


Check your venting and lint basket. Check blower for lint build up and blower wheel obstruction., test by trying to turn the wheel manually by hand (should be easy) May have to remove cabinet or front/back plate to get to it)

Next check the heating element itself with a meter for continuity OHMS CLOSED CIRCUIT. If not its defective or has a short if its grounding out? Which in turns causes blown fuses or thermostats or overheating.

Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage. 220 because if u only get half or 110 volts you will be able to run the machine which uses only 110 to run motor but not the heater which uses a full 220,

Check the thermal cut off, the cycling and the hi limit thermostats.
For continuity or OHMS. If no ohms or resistance they need replacement.

Lastly check your moister sensor. ( located inside the dryer door usually) Especially if machine seems to shut down early and clothes are still wet.
Test with a meter at room temperature and it should show continuity.
A failed moisture sensor will affect the dryer run time in the automatic moisture sensing cycle but it will not affect the heating of the dryer or the timed cycle. Which are reflected by the thermostats.

there is a hi and a low tempreture sensor best to check those for continuity first when the dryer heats up and gets to hot the hi will turn off the heater where as when the low gets to cool it will turn it back on

GE DCXR463EA1WW that has stopped heating.


Probably a bad heating element. Sometimes one side will burn out before the other, so it takes a lot longer to dry. Then the other side burns out and it won't dry at all. Usually thermostats last longer than elements.

Whirlpool LER4634EQO Runs for about 2 minuts and shuts off.


It is possible your Cycling Themostat is not working properly. It determines at what temperature to turn heat on and off to maintain a consistent dryer temp. The High Limit Thermostat would turn off the heat but your dryer would still run. That leaves the Thermal Cut Off which is turning off your dryer. It might be faulty and turning off at too low a temp, or it might be doing it's job. In that case something else is wrong. If you can check the exhaust air temperature at the dryer, it should be under 175 degrees. If you are absolutely sure the vent is clear, then replace the Dryer Cycling Thermostat.

62802 stops running after a few minutes


It sounds as if you have a defective drive motor.  After the motor runs for a while and heats up, the internal thermal switch cuts it off before it gets too hot and becomes a hazard.  Once the motor cools down and the thermal switch makes up again, it will run and then repeat this process.
