A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The first thing I would try is dry a normal load of clothes with the vent hose disconnected from the back of the dryer. If it still takes 2-3 times longer to dry then I would have to suspect a heating element issue. Check the exhaust temperature while you have the vent hose disconnected to see what the highest average temperature is. When set on high heat the exhaust temperature should average around 150 degrees if the dryer is heating properly.

The heating element could be broken and only half of it is heating up if it does not reach an average of 150 degrees. I added a YouTube video showing how to access and replace heater if you find it broken. I also added a video showing how to replace the high limit thermostat . It could also have a faulty high limit thermostat or operating thermostat too causing the heater to turn off prematurely. You should also check the door seal and the front and rear drum seals. The heating element is part #279838 and the high limit thermostat is part #3977767 which can be ordered from Sears PartsDirect NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before removing the rear panel. � Check the things I have covered here and if I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Based on your symptom and details your dryer may have a bad front or rear drum seal causing fresh air to be draw into the drum. If the drum seal is damaged or if the drum support rollers are worn, it can cause the drum to sit drop down enough to allow clothes to get between the drum seal and the roller causing the black streaks. Also, if the vent system is restricted it will cause the dryer to take longer to dry.

Open the door and inspect the condition of the front and rear felt seals and also check the vent hose and the outside vent cap for any restrictions or sharp bends. I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

The squeaking noise is likely from the idler pulley which is used to keep tension on the drive belt. I added a YouTube video showing how to a maintenance kit which includes the drum support rollers, belt and idler pulley. The maintenance kit #4392065 for Kenmore model dryer 110.60622990 can be ordered from Sears Parts Direct.

The wiring diagram for that dryer is shown in the first image below. The drive motor circuit is traced in blue and yellow. Before you remove that motor and bench test it, I recommend that you check the continuity through that thermal fuse. Here is a link for a brief video that shows how to test that component: Thermal Fuse Testing . You can access that thermal fuse by unplugging the dryer and removing the back panel. The location of that thermal fuse is shown in the second image below. If that fuse is blown then it will need to be replaced. You can order that part from the Sears PartsDirect website. The part number for that fuse is 3392519. NOTE: If that thermal fuse was blown, be sure that you check the exhaust vent duct system as shown in that video.

If that thermal fuse is okay, you can test that dryer motor by applying voltage through the 4M and 5M connections (where the blue and the white wires are connected). I provided a drawing of that motor switch in the third image. If the motor won't run when 120 volts is applied to it, then the motor will need to be replaced.

These tips should help you with this dryer problem. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

Q:

How do I install a heating element on my dryer?

A:



The heating element part number 3403585 is NOT the correct heating element for model number KEYS977EZ0 dryer. The correct heating element for your dryer is part number 3401338.

If you feel completely confident and safe in replacing the heating element here is the steps.

Be aware and careful of sharp edges on panel and dryer parts. Gloves are recommended when handling and working with sheet metal.

To replace the heating element follow these steps:

  • Disconnect the power cord from the power source.
  • Looking at the dryer from the rear. The heating element is located in the bottom right hand corner.
  • Remove the large rear panel from the rear of the dryer by taking out all the 1/4 inch or 5/16 inch hex head screws.
  • There is a RED wire and a RED/WHITE wire on the terminals of the heating element to remove.
  • There is also a HIGH LIMIT thermostat mounted on the heating element with 2 RED/WHITE wires that needs to transferred over to the new heating element.
  • There is a single hex head screw holding the heating element to the heating element housing.
  • Remove the screw and slide the heating element down enough to clear the heating element housing and pull the heating element back and off.
  • Reverse the procedure to reassemble.

Thank you for your question.

I can understand wanting the dryer to heat and the timer to advance.

  • I would first suggest that you operate the dryer in the timed dry mode. If the timer advances in this mode we know the timer is probably okay.

If the dryer runs but does not heat and you have verified that you have 240 volts coming to the dryer then it could be in the heat circuit.

  • If you feel comfortable in checking the dryer yourself and you have a volt/ohm meter to check the heat circuit we can narrow down the possible causes.

  • First REMOVE POWER to the dryer.

  • Move the dryer out from the wall and remove the back panel. Locate the heater element wires and disconnect the one red wire off the high limit thermostat that comes from the heating element and set your meter to the ohms scale and check for continuity across the element terminals.

  • If the element checks okay then check for continuity across all the thermostats and hi-limits.

  • I will give you a wiring diagram and at the bottom you will see the heater circuit with the red wire coming from the left to the thermal cut off to the operating thermostat to the Hi-limit thermostat and the heater. If any one of those is open the heat circuit will not work. And if you have it in auto dry the orange wire circuit will not let the timer advance.

I hope this will help you find the heat problem with your dryer.

Please let me know if you need anymore help and I will be glad to help you.

I see that you have found the element is open and it will be the cause of the problems.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Q:

Why did my Kenmore dryer make a squealing noise for a few days while it was running and now it turns on but shuts off immediately?

A:

Based on your symptom and details the likely failure is the motor. In order to access the motor will require removing the front panel. It will require quite a bit of labor and mechanical abilities to remove and replace the motor. I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your dryer. I added a link to a previous answer below with instructions. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before servicing the dryer. 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 .

Q:

Why won't my Kenmore dryer stop unless we open the door?

A:

You did not provide enough details indicating if the timer will advance or not in the timed cycle. You also did not indicate which cycle you are using (time or auto dry). Does the timer only advance on time dry and not when it's set on the automatic dry? If your timer does not advance when set to the automatic dry, the failure is most likely a failed power resistor or the orange wire connecting one side of the heating element terminal the power resistor is not making a good connection or it may have come loose. See image below. You will see the 5000 ohm Resistor shown connected in series between the heater and terminal OR of the timer. If this resistor is bad, the timer will not advance and turn off. The resistor can be tested using an ohm meter. Disconnect the power supply and the resistor and measure the resistance. If it does not have 5000 ohms of resistance, replace the resistor. When the timer is set on Automatic, timer contacts TM and OR is closed. The timer motor will only run when it has Neutral supplied to it when the operating thermostat or high limit thermostat opens when the dryer reaches operating temperatures. The resistor acts like a shunt in order to provide the Neutral to the timer motor once the thermostat opens. See images below for the complete timer operating theory.

Q:

Why won't my Kenmore dryer model 110.60622990 heat?no heat - need suggestions please!

A:

You indicated that the power to the dryer is fine. This normally indicates that you checked the outlet to verify that you have 240 volts supplied to the dryer as shown in the diagram of the outlet in the first image. If you did not verify this outlet voltage, I recommend that you do that first. The dryer will run if only one of the 120 volt legs of 240 volt power is provided to it. If the second leg of 120 volt power is missing, the dryer will not heat. NOTE: You should only check this live outlet voltage if you are completely confident in your technical ability to measure it using a volt/ohm meter.

If the outlet voltage is okay, I recommend that you check the second thermostat in the dryer circuit. I provided a wiring diagram for your dryer in the second image. The L1 leg of the heating circuit is traced in red and the L2 leg is traced in yellow. You indicated that you replaced the thermostat but you did not indicate which one. The components in the heating circuit are shown in the third image. The high limit thermostat is on the heater box and the operating thermostat is on the blower housing. I recommend that you check the thermostat that you did not replace with a volt/ohm meter. Unplug the dryer and pull off the back panel. Remove on wire from the thermostat and measure the resistance across the leads of the component. You should measure near zero ohms of resistance at room temperature. If the thermostat is open (measures infinite resistance) then it will need to be replaced. If you did not take this type of resistance reading on the heating element, I recommend that you check this component as well since you have the back panel off of the dryer. The heating element should measure between 7.8 and 11.8 ohms of resistance. If it is open then it will need to be replaced.

To check the timer switch 2, you can move the timer dial so that it is in a heated drying cycle (with the dryer still unplugged). Measure the resistance from the red wire lead on the terminal block to the red wire on the thermal cut-off fuse. You should measure continuity (near zero ohms) through this section of the heating circuit. If you measure infinite resistance (open) then you could have a failed timer or a wiring failure in that part of the circuit. You can also check for continuity from the red lead on the terminal block all the way to the heating element to check the L1 leg of the circuit. If this leg is okay, then you could have a failed motor centrifugal switch. When the motor is running, the contact 1M to 2M should be closed.

These tips should help you diagnose your heating failure in the dryer.

If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details.

Q:

My Kenmore dryer, model number 110.60622990, is heating intermittently. What can be the problem?

A:

In reference to your Kenmore dryer, model number 110.60622990;

Electric dryers use two 30 amp household fuses or two 30 amp circuit breakers. It is possible for one fuse to blow or one breaker to trip. The dryer will still run (drum will turn), but there will no heat to dry the clothes.

Check the items listed below :

  1. Check for a blown household fuse or tripped circuit breaker.
  2. Replace the fuse or reset the circuit breaker, by switching.
  3. Confirm the power cord is properly installed and plugged into the power outlet.

Q:

Why is my Kenmore dryer not heating?

A:

First, you will need to check the supply voltage at the back of the dryer; it should be about 240 volts. If you have the correct voltage then follow the red wire out of the timer towards the heating element for L1 & follow the red wire coming from L2 through the motor switch & to the element. One of these components in that row will be defective.

Q:

Why doesn't my Kenmore dryer turn off?

A:

You did not indicate whether the dryer is in the automatic or timed dry mode when you are having this problem. If this problem is happening in the automatic cycle, try operating the dryer in a timed cycle to see if the timer operates properly. If it advances properly in the timed mode, then you have a bad resistor assembly (Key 18 in the image below). Replacing this part should fix your problem given these symptoms.

If the timer does not advance in either mode, then you will need to replace the timer (Key 3).

NOTE: Be sure to unplug the dryer to disconnect electrical power before you access any internal components.

Replacing just the knob assembly will not fix this problem of the timer not advancing.

If need more help with this repair, resubmit your question with additional details.
