Question about Kenmore 74602 Gas Dryer

1 Answer

3 yr old model purchased used, not heating up

I bought this a couple days ago, used. the dryer was delivered just after the owner's used it for the last time. they say it has never given them a problem. unfortunately for me, it is not heating up and the dryer is filling with gas... but the hookups are all in proper condition. the previous owners brought it to me in the back of a trailer with a tarp tied over it. could it have been damaged in the transport over here?

I would be concerned that when they disconnected gas flex from dryer, that the fitting on dryer turned with the pipe that goes into dryer and that it came undone.

Makes grinding noise especially when shutting down

a grinding noise in a dryer is usually due to a broken motor coupling. Not sure however since you didnt include a model number, brand or year the machine was purchased. If you own a somewhat older model (bought from 4-6 years ago) it is most likely the motor coupling however newer models can have some other problems and usually require a service tech to come and look at.

The wheel has left handed threads. Use an impact wrench and an adjustable wrench to get it off or get a vice grips or pipe wrncha nd lock down the shaft then get a stick of wood or a hammer handle and shove it in between two fins at the 3 oclock position. Slam downwards on the wheel and it should pop loose.
