Question about Kenmore 62872 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

My dryer heats, but doesn't tumble.

How do I check the belt? I took the back of the machine off, but didn't see the mechanics of where the belt would be. It's older, model # 66801692, type #180-00
Have you any ideas?

I have a sears kenmore sewing machine model 148-13100 where is oil needed?

If it is an older mechanical machine, 1-2 drops oil (ONLY fresh, good quality sewing machine oil) applied every place where metal rubs against metal. AVOID belts, plastic gears, CAMS. Slowly hand-rotate or wiggle the handwheel, watch where metal parts move against each other and apply a couple drops. Be sure to get the top mechanism, the side mechanism where the needlebar is located, and under the sewing surface, ie the feed dogs area. Also, move levers and dials and apply a couple drops where metal rubs metal.

The Ultimate II washes clothes fine, and the water does drain, but the clothes are still wet after the spin cycle

see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Washer does not drain Again, depending on the brand, different parts should be checked. 1st check the lid switch. If you hear the machine trying to work but no water seems to be draining, you might have something stuck in your drain pump. You need to check the drain pump. Whirlpool & Kenmore direct drive systems use a mechanical pump attached to the front of the motor. Most other newer models use an electric drain pump except for some of the older Frigidaires, Maytags, Amanas, & Admirals, they have a belt driven pump. Check for clogs & belt conditions on these models.

Require a user manual

There are some free download pdf manuals on this link for the Elna sewing machines.... I didn't see the model 2007 though. Double check the model and check this link to see if you can find your model.

My mom has 3 machines ...needs instruction manuals on 2 ..kenmore..models 385.1664190 and model 158.17530... also needs a belt for this one.. the other machine is an..Euro-Pro model 9120...

The manual for the Kenmore 385.1664190 is available here: . You can purchase a copy here: . I didn't see the manual available at Sears Parts Direct on the parts lists that I checked.

An except of the manual for the 158.17530 is available here: . Sears Parts Direct lists two belts (parts 26 and 27) here: . You can probably get the belts in any Sears store. Ask for the part numbers 50013 (originally 28908) and 30083. The manual is not available at Sears Parts Direct. You can get the full manual for $13 here: .

The Euro-Pro 9120 manual is not available as a free download. However, you can buy a copy for $15 here: .

I hope this helps.

Take it to another shop and have them do a compression check. If the compression is low, you have found the problem. If the compression is the same as the other cylinders, trade the fuel injector at that cylinder with another cylinder and see if the problem moves. If the problem moves (misfire code in different hole), the injector is bad. If the problem didn't move, and the compression is fine, then you have a vacuum leak on the intake runner to that cylinder, possibly the intake gasket. Print this and give it to your new mechanic.
