Why does dryer continue running after dry cycle finished?

I would say this is in the control board but not 100 percent on this. If you go to an appliance store, not a big box, they will probably help you diagnose and order the part for you if you want to do this on your own.

Kenmore 110.66902690 electric dryer does not dry completely

Dear Barry,
Try 2 things.
One, be certain the clothes are very dry coming out of the washing machine.
If the washer leaves the clothes wet ( like the belt might be slipping), it can take the dryer forever to finish drying the clothes.
You can tell by hand-wringing them.
You should not be able to get any water out of them by hand-wringing after they have spun dry in the washer.
Two, try running a load with the vent hose unhooked off the back of the dryer.
If this fixes the problem, you are having a "clogged vent" issue somehow.
Be blessed.

A few weeks ago our kenmore dryer would only dry for 10 mins or so at a time, finally after about a week it wouldn't come on at all. Had a repair man tell us it was the timer. We ordered a new timer...

it it tried to turn on when you flip the breaker then the problem could be a loose connection more often than not dryers pull allot of amperage and if the wires are loose it will from an arc similar to welding and melt the wires the unit runs only when the wires make full contact.
1. turn your breaker off 2 remove the area where the connections come into the dryer check there if all is good there go to 3 3 check the plug 4 check the wall connector 5 check connections at the breaker
as always follow safety guidelines when working on high voltage this is 220 volts
Best of Luck

The heat is not a factor.Make sure you do not have a tripped breaker. Otherwis if you had a power surge to the dryer, ther could be electrical damage.

Whirlpool Imperial Electric Dryer wont heat up

Check the following to address this issue.

1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses. An electric dryer uses two circuit breakers or fuses, and if only one of two is tripped or blown, the dryer might still run but not heat. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

2. Heating element
A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Dryer won't turn on for 2nd load

A couple of things is to make sure you have 110v at the recepticle, if you do then it's with in the dryer. It could be the door switch wont close, thermal over load won't reset in your motor(if it got hot enough to open, you said it had been in use) , broken belt switch if your dryer has one, or even the thermal fuse (in series with L-1) opened up. Ohm out the door switch in the closed position, it should read 0 ohms, Same with the thermal fuse, should read 0 ohms, not an open read.Good Luck..MJE

dryers take a lot of power to run.the circuit is tripping because it cannot take the load of the may have to get a dryer line installed.check the value on the circuit breaker.u need to use twice that value on the dryer.with clothes added to the dryer the motor takes more current to spin.this extra current is greater than the circuit breaker value so it trips to prevent the house wire from going on fire.

Dryer and breaker

you have a week breaker or a breaker that is to small you need a 40 amp breaker 20 on each side (two breakers locked into one) or worse you have a short in the dryer. If dryer runs for a little bit and then shuts down its the breaker.if it throws breaker as soon as you plug it in or start it then the short is in your dryer good luck

Dryer needs multiple cycles to dry

I would check on the outside of the building. anti pest screens usualy plug up with lint. from the discription you have made it is definatly having troubles venting some where. Check every thing because venting is usualy not covered under warranty.
