Question about Kenmore Dryers

Open Question

My Kenmore dryer 110.68032990 stops running after letting go of start button. Has heat and makes a loud crackling noise.

Changed motor, thermal fuse,both thermostats but it hasn't helped. When switched to air only it still does not stay on but doesn't make the popping/crackling noise.

If your turning on heat and the unit is knocking and blowing cold air, your compressor is having problems in heat mode, could be reversing valve. A tech is needed in your situation. Getting the prob fixed right away will save you dollars..

SOURCE: loud buzz when starting, then shutting down after 10 min.

Yes, this sounds like the motor cutting out on thermal lockout.

Dryer stops


If the hum is loud I would suspect something is jammed and the motor is stopped leading to a heavy current running through the motor. After 5 or 10 minutes I would anticipate the circuit breaker would trip or the motor would burn up. If the humming suddenly stops then a thermal overload switch might be activating and when it cools down normal operation resumes. This is my only insight.

Sounds like you may have tripped the thermal limit on the motor. Although, usually you will hear a loud buzzing sound when you try to start it. Let it set for about 2 hours, and try to restart. If that doesnt work, the only other thing that could stand in your way is a door switch. The door switch is a very easy and inexpensive repair. The motor is quite a bit more. If you have not cleaned the lint out of the inside of your dryer (requires some disassembly of your dryer), that would be a good place to start and will sometimes allow a thermally overloaded motor to work again. Keep in mind, if it is the motor, they only have so many thermal resets before they are just done. There are instructions on this website if you are interested in trying to diagnose this dryer. Please, make sure before you take it apart, you have it unplugged!

Kenmore dryer stopped running


Hi, I can determine a motor bad by the noise. Does it hum while holding the start button or is it a grinding deep sound? It can sound like the motor starts slow but once it gets going, it is ok. Sometimes the house lights will dim when the motor statrs going bad.
Let me know if I can help you further.

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.
