Question about Kenmore Dryers

Open Question

Kenmore dryer model 11062212181 stopped working.

Checked and reset breaker with no result. Door switch began malfunctioning months ago... tumbled even with door open. I planned to replace the dryer soon as it is very old and noisy. Is there a way to check power to the outlet without a multimeter?

Check spring tab behind door switch-if it's bent/out of adjustment, circuit will act like door is always open.

To confirm this, open door, set dryer to active setting, and hold in door switch; if it comes on, then it's either the spring tab, or the switch is malfunctioning

SOURCE: Dryer wont start

Ok are you saying that the fuse from end to end has 120V? Even if it reads continuity; if its reading 120V from end to end, the fuse is bad. replace it before you do anything else. and on electric dryers you should have 220v across both top and bottoms of fuses with power applied to the fuses. Any readings beyond or lower indicate a blown fues. But the correct way to check a fuse is with power applied and from end to end of the same fuse. A -0- reading or <10 v is ok with an electronic vom but trust me if its getting 120v end to end (on the same fuse) the fuse is out.

IUf this helped you please rate me accordingly and good luck.

SOURCE: Dryer does'nt run. checked breaker, thermal fuse, starter relay, timer stops when door is opened, starts when closed?

2 more things could be wrong,check the blower box to see if you have a thermister thermostat on it,check that with your omns meter,the other thing is the motor is no longer strong enough to turn the drum and it heat up and tips off,let me know what you find-mike

My white knight tumble dryer wont start


Nothing works or drum fails to turn (tumble dryers)
Ensure that the power supply to the dryer is switched on, the timer is set to the desired drying time and the door is correctly closed. If you have a condenser model, also check that the bottle is empty and is fully pushed into the machine.

The first thing to establish when troubleshooting the clothes dryer is whether the dryer will start or not. If it won't, start by checking the outlet and the circuit breaker. Is the dryer plugged in or has it tripped the circuit breaker? If the breaker has been tripped, flip it back on and try the dryer again. The drum should turn without a problem.
If both plug and breaker are fine, you'll need to inspect the door switch as you continue to troubleshoot the tumble dryer. When you close the door on the dryer, a plastic peg should click and operate the switch which allows the dryer to work. The peg might be bent or broken, in which case it won't connect with the switch. You can try to straighten the peg, but if it's broken, you'll need to replace it. If the peg is fine, the switch has probably failed and will need to be replaced.

Our dryer just suddenly stopped! We have no light and it seems no power. We checked out fuse box and everything is fine there. Does this dryer have a fuse that would cause all electricity to stop?


Hello
No .Double check your cicuit breakers.If your dryer is electric there are two breakers.Switch all the way off then all the way on to reset.
I if ok then suspect door switch .It kills everything and if stuck ,the light too.

Happy hunting

Kenmore Dryer Model #68202 just quit working. Set


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly

Things that will cause a dryer to just up and stop are:

1. Door switch
2. Motor Switch
3. Belt switch

The first thing to check is the door...

a. Verify the door remains closed and that if you gently tug on the door that it does NOT make the door switch click. Things like the switch actuation post get worn and clothes being dried press against the door and can cause the dryer to stop.

The second thing to check is the drum.

a. Reach inside the dryer and push the drum in either direction. If it moves easily with little resistance (Belt not turning the motor as drum is moved) then the belt has broken and the belt saftey switch has been activated causing the dryer to appear dead in all aspects.

The last thing that can cause it to just stop is a failure of the motor or motor switch. (Least suspects at this time)

Also go to the main Circuit breaker panel and physically turn off the dryer 30A Circuit breakers by pushing them against the off position and then back to the on position. This resets the breaker completely

You did not mention the age of this Dryer yet at this time I suspect a broken belt has tripped the belt safety switch.

Thanks for using FixYa!

1 year old Kenmore dryer tumbles but doesn't heat.


If it is 1 year old, call Kenmore , they will probably fix it as a courtesy call.

If not quote that the machine is not fit for purpose as it should not have gone wrong so quick

When you open the door to our Kenmore Dryer it does not stop tumbling


HI. this will occur if the door switch is malfunctioning. The switch structure mat be misaligned, or the actual circuit may be damaged as well.

Inspect the switch for the above stated faults. If the switch is aligned correctly. simply replace the door switch. It is stuck closed.

Dryer won't heat. I just replaced the felt seals on the drum, the door switch didn't work but after I unplugged it & reconnected it worked. Could it be the doorswitch? I replaced the high temp switch a...


A tumble dryer that isn't heating up at all needs checking with a continuity test meter. The most common cause is a heating element failure, or t.o.c's going open circuit. It depends on which make and model of tumble dryer you have as to how easy it is to get to the relevant parts. Some tumble dryers have heating elements that are easily accessible by removing the back panel, and can be tested for continuity or checked for obvious breakage. Others though have their heating elements inside, which aren't accessible without stripping the dryer down. Tumble dryer heating elements are always protected by thermal fuses which are usually simple devices with 2 wires connected. They can be tested for continuity with a test meter
or
If power is getting to the tumble dryer and the socket is definitely OK, then the most common problem with tumble dryers not working is when the door micro switch fails, or the catch on the door that operates the switch either breaks or no longer activates the door switch. Check for broken door catches. There is usually a plastic peg on the door that pushes through a hole in the tumble dryer's casing where the door catch is. Closing the door should operate a simple micro switch. If the plastic peg is broken or bent it might not operate the switch properly
