Q:

High pitch noise 11060842990 Kenmore Electric dryer

A:

Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I will be more than happy to help with your dryer. Upon researching model 11060842990; I show the unit does use a tensioner with pulley. That could be the reason of the squeaking. I linked the diagram below. The tensioner is number 39 in the diagram.

Thank you for choosing Sears. We appreciate your business. Have a great day.

Q:

why would would my dryer keep popping the breaker 11060842990 Kenmore Electric dryer

A:

Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com
 
I am sorry and do understand your frustration when there is problems with the dryer. 
 
Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Kenmore Dryer model number 11060842990.
 
First thing for safety and concerns to keep dryer running well is to check the lint screen and vent of air flow going out of the house.   If clogged up it could cause heating problems on any dryer.
 
To prevent a Blocked Vent Hood, once a year: 
 
1.  Clean any lint blockage from the exhaust vent hood.
2.  Make sure the vent hood flappers move freely.
3.  Check for screen/grate openings that allow bird or rodent nests.
4.  Replace exhaust vent hood if damaged.
5.  Check for good air flow while running the dryer.
Note: Poor airflow or decreased airflow indicates further vent system cleaning is needed.

Your dryer is popping the breaker.   First make sure the fuses connected with the dryer is good.

After you make sure the lint is cleared and cleaned, your fuse is good.   Check the items below with an ohm/volt meter if you are sure that you know how to do properly.  The thermostats could be stuck open and sending too much power through the dryer.

When it comes to Electric dryers here are all the options to check on when not heating.
All can be checked with an Ohm meter for its continuity open or closed.
 
You can see all these on the link below when clicked on.
 
Thermal cut off switch which is both key 1 and key 34 together
 
ON the back of the blower is thermal fuse key number 59
 
Also on the back of the blower internal thermostat key number 42
 
Make sure you always keep  your lint screen areas clean.

Please "RESUBMIT YOUR QUESTIONS IF THERE IS ANY OTHER PROBLEMS".
 
Thank you for your understanding in this matter and I hope we can help you with your future questions and repairs.  Thank you for choosing Sears and using our SearsPartsDirect.com.

Q:

Dryer won't start up. 110.60842990

A:

Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com
 
I am sorry and do understand your frustration when your dryer wont start.

Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your model number 110.60842990.
 
I see you say you replaced the switch but didn't tell me which switch.   When the dryer stops running there are 2-3 main items to look at.   The one most likely is the door swithch and the door catch to make sure it is getting a tight seal and connection with the switch.  There is also a thermal fuse to look at which is at the back side of the blower on the the back of your dryer.
The first thing I always advise people to at least see if it runs a short time and that is to open the door and close it harder than normal.  Sometimes that will re-activate the switch and work until you can order a new one.
To test the door switch you just need to take wires off and see if you have continutity running through.   If so then it is good.  Second test is the thermal fuse on the dryer and should have about 10 to 50 ohms.

I know that it can be very frustrating to have issues with your dryer. On this model the sensor has two electrodes that sense the moisture in the laundry. If the electrodes are malfunctioning, then they can cause the dryer to stop heating. However, these are only used during the Auto Dry Cycle. If the dryer does not heat all the time on the Timed Dry Cycle then the sensors are not the problem, the heating element is. If the heat works on the Timed Dry Cycle all the time, then the electrodes are the problem. These are not easy parts to replace, but there are replacement parts available. The clips, which the part number you provide go to, are not available any longer but you are going to use the one already there for the sensor. I hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Thank you for submitting your question. I understand your concern regarding your dryer and I will be happy to assist you. I was able to find the owners manual for your dryer off of our web site. The wiring diagram for your dryer is provded in the first image below. The second image below will assist you in disassembling the dryer to access any parts. If the dryer is heating but not running, you may be experiencing an issue with grounded heating element (279838). A grounded heating element will heat even though the drum is not turning. All that is needed for the dryer to heat with a grounded element, is for the timer to be turned on to a heat cycle and the element will get hot even with the motor not running. I recommend replacing the heating element. You can order parts from our Sears Parts Direct web site. I hope this helps. Please reply back to this thread if you require further assistance. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Understood. Is there a way I could test this diagnosis? For example, remove the heating element then try running the dryer. If the drum turns, then it proves the element is the problem. Would that be possible?

A:

I decided to test your diagnosis. I disconnected all connections to the heating element, insulated the ends and taped them out of the way. I re-attached the back panel, plugged it in, and - you were right, the drum turned. So, the motor is obviously in good working order. Just on a whim, I unplugged the dryer, re-attached the heat element connections, and tried running the dryer. Oddly enough, now everything works. I have yet to run it for a full cycle but this is somewhat baffling. Any suggestions and do you think this is safe to operate considering the previous incident? Thanks.

A:

Ed, when disconnecting the element and reconnecting it, you properly removed the ground which may be why it's currently working. I recommed running a full cycle and keep an eye on the element to see if its over heating or not. You can also test the element to see if it reaches 120 volts or goes over. If it goes over, then I recommend replacement.
