Kenmore Dryer Model 11063102101

Dryer will not turn off. The heat stops but the dryer motor will not turn off untill timer is turned to the off position. Would opening the door before cycle has compleated and leaving the timer on cause this problem ?

Probably the timer is defective and needs replacing.

Dryer works but when time is up it keeps running (cold air)

Dryer will not shut off:

The timer: Located in the control console of the dryer the timer consists of a small motor connected to a series of gears that rotate cams, which turn electric contacts off and on inside the timer. The timer contacts control the dryer motor as well as the heat circuit and the timer motor itself. A defective timer motor or a defect in the timer's electrical contacts can cause the timer motor to fail and the timer will need to be replaced. The contacts can be checked for continuity with a multi-meter. This test should only be made when the dryer is unplugged. Another test u can do is observe by eyesight and see does the timer advance or is it stuck on one cycle?


1. On gas and electric dryers that have an "Auto Dry" cycle, the cycling thermostat is often used to advance the timer as well regulate the drum temperature. Essentially, thermostat will alternately turn on the heat source or the timer motor when the temperature has been satisfied. To check this thermostat, you will have to check for power to the timer motor with a multi-meter, during a cycle. This is a live voltage test and caution should be used.

2. Some dryers will use a cool down thermostat to tumble the clothes without heat, at the end of the dry cycle. Power is routed through this thermostat to the drive motor to keep it running until the drum temperature has dropped to a specific temperature. If this thermostat fails it can cause the drum to turn indefinitely or until the door is opened. You can check the thermostat for continuity with a multi-meter. This test should only be made with the power removed from the dryer.

Hunter, I have A kenmore electric dryer model 110.64121100. My problem is the dryer heats but the drum does not turn. This is a very strange problem. I turned off the timer and heater was still on in the...

Ok check the belt. if broken then make sure the drum turns freel by hand before replacing the bely. Usually dryers wont heat if the motor doesnt go so perhaps the motor is running without a belt. have a look see. Without an inspection its dificult to pin point Good luck

My Kenmore model 70 dryer works with the timer but the auto-dry feature will never turn off the dryer. I'm assuming that this is a moisture sensor problem. Info from the tag inside the dryer: type:...

are your clothes drying?when the dryer heats up the heat shuts off then the timer will move,when the heat starts the timer stops,no heat no timer movement.when did you last clean out the dryer?you need to clean out the vent line if it's a long run i use a leaf blower to clean it out,you need to clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into and vac out the inside of dryer where the motor is,you should do this once a year so you don't have a fire and your clothes will dry on time and you won't have any problems like this,try running it with the vent line off to see if this helps.you also could have a bad thermostat but you should clean it first anyway

Dryer will not turn off

If your dryer seems to run forever, it could be because of a clogged vent or internal ductwork. Your dryer may have an automatic cycle that turns off the dryer when the clothes are dry. It does this with a special thermostat or moisture-sensing system.

Normally, this is what happens during an automatic cycle:

  • The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a pre-set temperature--say 135 degrees.

  • When the dryer reaches the pre-set temperature, the thermostat tells the timer to begin advancing. (If there's a moisture sensor, the timer advances only if the moisture content of the clothing is low enough.)

  • The timer advances until the interior cools, then the thermostat tells the timer to stop advancing, and tells the dryer to start heating again.

This cycle continues until the clothes are dry. But…if the vent is clogged, the dryer may never reach the proper operating temperature, so it doesn't send the signal to the timer and the dryer continues to run indefinitely, even if the clothes are completely dry. To fix the problem, clean the vent and/or internal ductwork.

Electric dryer wont heat or turn off

there could be a temperature switch that tripps off. look at the diagram and trace also the power to the timer motor. it seems that you lost your power to your timer motor that is why the timer stays @ what ever setting you set it.

Kenmore Dryer Timer does not advance

Timer resistance is way too low. You may have misswired the new timer. Basically, when the dryer motor is running, the timer motor gets voltage 115 volts.
