Question about Kenmore Dryers

Open Question

I have a Kenmore 90 Series dryer model # 110.60902990. It will only run if I hold the start button in and then it will only run for a short period. I have replaced the timer and the circuit board.

SOURCE: Kenmore Dryer 90 Series will start but suddenly stop...

Hello , Sounds like your motor is over heating , it will run until the sensor shuts it down from getting to hot , it is most likley because the motor is covered in lint and needs cleaned. Hope that helps.

SOURCE: Dryer Won't Start

Make sure it has power. Then:Check the door switch. A little lever sticking down through top right of door opening. If it is not there you will need new door switch(sometimes the little lever breaks off). If it is there and does not click when you press it in you need a new door switch. if it clicks when you close the door then you have a bad thermal fuse.The thermal fuse is found by taking the back of the dryer off. The fuse is an oblong white plastic piece with 2 wires attached.

Door switch part number 3406109
Thermal fuse part number 3392519

SOURCE: Kenmore Dryer-90 Series- Pushed Start button nothing happened

get a meter,unplug the dryer and read out the fuse,pull one of the wires off when you read it out,also when was the last time you cleaned out the dryer?if it's the fuse usually the air isn't moving very well,you need to clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,vac out the inside of dryer where the motor is and clean out the vent line and make sure the outside vent is clear,if it's a long run from the back of dryer to the outside i use a leaf blower to blow out the vent line,make sure you have 240 coming in at the back of dryer,you could have a blown fuse,if the thermal fuse is good,check the thermostats on the heater box and read out the heater,good luck,if i can help with anything else let me know

There is a relay which goes bad mounted in the control panel. Some times it is part of the start switch and some a separate unit next to it. Need model to prioperly advise.

Kenmore 90 series dryer.. The start button only works if you hold it down and when you let it go it stops running. Is this just the button or a sign of a bigger problem?


It is not the button you either have a broken belt. a bad broken belt switch or a bad motor or something dragging down the drum making it impossible for the motor to get up to run speed
