Question and Answers

Q:

kenmore dryer 110.60901990 won't start 11060901990 Kenmore Electric dryer

A:

Thank you for choosing SearsPartsDirect.com. I understand how important it is to be able to have a properly working dryer. First, make sure you're getting the correct voltage into the appliance. The power cord should tell you the correct voltage needed. Flip the breaker off for 3 minutes and turn back on to see if the status changes. Make sure the dryer isn't plugged into a GCFI outlet.
It's great that you have done quite a bit of troubleshooting yourself. So, based on what you've already replaced, it sounds like you may need a new door switch or timer. If you have a multi tester and are comfortable with using it, I recommend testing both for continuity.
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.
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
If you have further questions please let me know. Thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com.

Hello Lea, and welcome back to SearsPartsDirect.com! If the outlets and voltages to the dryer are fine, inspect the dryer control for any burnt markings. Please see image below on the location of the control. Also check for any corrosion or burnt marking on the other attached wiring as those would need replacing.
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.

Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com

I am sorry and do understand your frustration when doing the repair work for the heating element.

I am sending  you a picture of the heating element so  you know what you need to do to take off the old one and replace the new one.   Key number 14 of the heating element and key 46 for the heating box.

Thanks. Looks like I have not removed the side screws (2) to the other connections. The element is clearly not sliding out like is shown in all the videos. Will get back with an update.

Q:

Kenmore dryer not drying as well as it used to.

A:

I know how important it is to have a good working dryer so that you do not have to run more than one cycle to dry the clothes. I found a question similar to yours to help while you wait for your expert response.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Your symptom points to a vent restriction but you say it's clean and the air flow is strong. If you're using the "Automatic Dry" cycles, make sure the two moisture sensor bars are clean. If the metal moisture sensors have a coating of fabric softener residue on them, the sensors can not detect moisture from the clothes and the dryer will shut off before the clothes are completely dry. If doesn't dry within 60 minutes when set on "Time" dry then you should check the exhaust temperature.

Take the vent hose off from the back of the dryer and place the thermometer in the exhaust port. With an empty drum, set the timer to "Time" dry and set the temperature switch to "High" heat and use a thermometer to monitor the exhaust temperature. The operating temperature should average around 140-150 degrees.

The dryer has several components which can open and break the L1 circuit to the heating element. It has an operating thermostat (key#42), high limit thermostat (key#48). I added an image below to reference. If it does not average between 140-150 degrees and the heating element is okay, I recommend replacing the high limit and the operating thermostat.

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.

Thanks, I found it. I cleaned it off, so I'll see if that works. If it is one of the components (#42, #48, #47 or #59) do you what the ohms should be on those components? Do I test it with both wires off or just one wire off? Thanks for all your help.

A:

Peter: Disconnect the power cord from the power supply and then disconnect at least one wire from the component before testing it for continuity. Each one must measure continuity or it will break the line voltage to the heating element.

I'm gonna have to borrow a multimeter, I have low confidence in my multimeter as when I tested the four components above, they all came up as a "short" on my multimeter. I'll get back to you soon...
