Why does my dryer vent smell like gas outside my house?

It is a gas appliance and as such should only be worked on by a qualified, registered gas technician. Call in a professional please. The gas to air mix is wrong. Techs use 'sniffers' to correct these days. You also have some sort of ignition or sensing problem. Your fixing method of 'let's try replacing this', never works and is expensive.

Any idea why my dryer is shutting off after a short time?

Sounds like the motor is going into thermal overload and shutting down. If you here a Buzzing noise when you start dryer motors bad. If after you start the dryer wait and stop it after 10 min and then try and restart it if it buzzes and rattles bad motor.

My Kenmore 110.66962501 dryer doesn't stay on after pressing Start

It is most likely a blown thermal fuse located on the blower housing next to the heating element caused by restricted exhaust vent on the drier. Check the vent and clean it out if plugged up it will not stay running.

My kenmore dryer is making a knocking sound , I replaced the tension bar and the rollers along with the belt and it's still making the same noise, what could it be?

If your axles on the tub rollers had no flat spots and the knocking noise sounds like its at the same tie interval sounds like the rear seal on the dryer drum is worn ou.t

I cannot find a part number for a Kenmore HE2 front load dryer.

Call for service and they have all the parts in the van, plus, it may be the control board. They are expensive so need proper diagnosis is needed.

When changing the power block on a Kenmore dryer can i put the thick white wire together with the green wire that is screwed to the dryer body

No - the white wire is a neutral for the 120v control circuit, green is the ground - separate functions. Although they connect to the same bus in the circuit breaker panel, and the unit would operate, it creates a hazardous situation if there is a problem and the ground is needed.

Whats means SRU and CLL message in Kenmore Dryer?

The serial number is just a numerical reference of when it was made. The Model number is the import part. Kenmore dryer will run for approximately five minutes. It then stops and throws a CLL SRU error code. I have researched this to mean "Call for Service". I have seen others potential causes that range from shorted heating element, to dirty lint screen/venting.

CLL SRU Error Code ' Appliance Video

How do you start diagnostic on kenmore elite smartheat quiet pak 9 HE4 dryer?

Hope this helps By Manage My LifeDecember 30th, 2011 Kenmore Elite Dryer HE4 Quietpak 9 Model 110.85091400 has 4 dim lights showing on the console display but won't start or respond Our dryer just quit working yesterday and I am puzzled. There are four lights very dimly lit on the display. They are the Casual button, the Timed Dry button and two of the segments in the oval time window. I have found the information online about how to test with a multimeter to try and figure out which board is bad. Unfortunately all these instructions require you to have the dryer in the diagnostic mode by pressing the More Time/Less Time/More Time/Less Time in less than 5 seconds. When we do this it does nothing and will not enter the diagnostic mode. When I am testing with the multimeter on the P3/P4 connections I am not getting any readings of voltage at all. Is this because of not being able to get into the diagnostic mode? Should I still be getting readings? I know we have power to the dryer because the light still turns on when you open the door. The cost of buying both the main control board and the front console are prohibitive for us and I would like to only buy the one that is bad. I have also tried the testing with the multimeter on the front console buttons and also get no readings of ohms at all. We have a very busy household with lots of kids and this dryer is very essential to us so the quicker we can get this fixed the better. Thank you in advance for your help.

Kenmore Elite 4 dryer turns on but won't run cool down light stays on?

Question edited for clarity 'Jen More elite'. For that strange behavior you need a service call for correct diagnosis. My guess is either the control board or the motor? Both are expensive so they are not items to swap out on a guess. Help videos in the link if you want to test a few things. https://www.google.com/search?q=Kenmore+Elite+4+dryer+turns+on+but+won%27t+run ..
