Question about Dryers

Open Question

Sears kenmore dryer model number 110-66912692. Dryer has been slow to dry clothes for a bit now. This morning it stopped drying all together. I called to order a heating element and the guy asked me if it was the thermostat or the element. How could I figure out how to find the broken part...and is there a diagram of the inside of this dryer so that I could access the element and the thermostat? I could wait for my husband to come home from work....but I think I can handle this one. Thank you

the vent where the air from the dryer leaves the house is blocked. if the air cant get out at the proper rate of speed the clothes cant dry properly. the vent needs to be cleaned out. not just the part be hind the dryer but all the way to the outside. if you need someone to do this for you, most chimney sweeps will handle this problem

check the ignitor under the door panel on the left side of the burner if it gets red when you turn the dryer on.if yes than see if gas shoots out and yes than how long it stays on if in few minutes it turns off than need thermal fuse checked so let me know up to this point if it works or not .

thermal fuse kit.it is blowing due to improper ventilation.their is a clog somewhere from dryer to where dryer vents outside.thermal fuse is located at top of your elemnt cage.you will replace the thermal fuse and your high limit fuse at the bottom of the elemnt cage.but have your venting checked or swept out.

DRYER DOOR WILL NOT STAY CLOSED WHEN IN USE


Most likely the receptacle that the door latch goes into is broken. Go to local appliance parts dealer with model number and buy the $5 part, or order through Sears Parts Direct online.

Dryer will not turn off


If your dryer seems to run forever, it could be because of a clogged vent or internal ductwork. Your dryer may have an automatic cycle that turns off the dryer when the clothes are dry. It does this with a special thermostat or moisture-sensing system.

Normally, this is what happens during an automatic cycle:

  • The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a pre-set temperature--say 135 degrees.

  • When the dryer reaches the pre-set temperature, the thermostat tells the timer to begin advancing. (If there's a moisture sensor, the timer advances only if the moisture content of the clothing is low enough.)

  • The timer advances until the interior cools, then the thermostat tells the timer to stop advancing, and tells the dryer to start heating again.

This cycle continues until the clothes are dry. But…if the vent is clogged, the dryer may never reach the proper operating temperature, so it doesn't send the signal to the timer and the dryer continues to run indefinitely, even if the clothes are completely dry. To fix the problem, clean the vent and/or internal ductwork.
