Question and Answers

Q:

hot back panel of cabinet 11060602990 Kenmore Electric dryer

A:

Thank you for choosing sears I would be happy to help you with dryer. Upon researching model 11060602990; the back panel of the dryer can get hot to the touch when the exhaust vent needs to be cleaned out. The lint gets back up and the heat does not all go thru the exhaust so then it heats up the back panel.  Cleaning the exhaust vent to the duct that goes outside should fix this problem

I trust this information will help you, have a great day.

Q:

the old themostat on model number 11060602990 that I am replacing had a orange wire and 2 red wires hooked to it. 11060602990 Kenmore Electric dryer

A:

Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com and being a valued member. It is unfortunate to hear that you are having issues with your dryer and I do understand your frustration. Glad to help out. I'm looking at your model number 11060602990 and the kit you have has different connector ends that will be used. The connector on the orange wire will be replaced with the connector that has an additional spade connector on that same connector which you will be able to connect 2 wires to the same end connector. The red jumper wire will also have a end connector replaced with a connector from the kit. Here is a link "Dryer Repair- Replacing the Thermal Cut-Off Kit (Whirlpool Part #279816)" for a video that will help with the repair. The kit also comes with the directions for the replacement. Just click the blue link above to be taken to the page. I trust this information will help you.

 

Thank you for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com.

The first responder has the wrong model, please disregard that information.

The source of the type of noise like your describing will be coming from the drum rollers, idler pulley, motor or front drum support. The only way to diagnose the noise problem is by removing the tumbler. I have found a link that has your specific model of dryer showing complete step by step access instructions. Once you get the drum out get back with us if you're unable to locate the failed component causing the constant squealing noise you described.

Remember to disconnect power to the dryer before attempting access.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

SAFETY NOTICE: Be sure to disconnect power to the appliance before performing any repairs. If you are not comfortable with doing any voltage checks that might be recommended, please contact your local service provider for repairs. Be aware that there could be sharp edges inside the appliance that could cause cuts or other injuries to yourself or others. Please click on the link below.

I have similar situation. I've removed drum, inspected rollers, vacuumed lint, etc. I hear screeching when I turn the motor shaft. I'm trying to remove motor. I got the front and rear retaining clips off, motor has play, but seems attached to plastic fan/blower. How do I release shaft from fan? Thx.
