A:

Knowing your way around an appliance when they develop issues can save the day. It seems like you have a good start so while you wait for the expert answer, the schematics and owner's manual may provide a bit more information. I attached both below. Hope this helps!

The red with white stripe wire runs from one side of the hi limit to the terminal of the heating element opposite the solid red wire on the other terminal of the element. The thermal cutoff has solid red & black. Please see the image provided below for details. For the timer not advancing we need to know if the timer motor is receiving 120volts or not. This will require using a meter. Be sure to test while running the dryer in time dry. Remember to disconnect power to the dryer before attempting to remove the panel & use extreme caution when working with voltage.

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.

Q:

Why does the door on my Kenmore dryer model 110.60957990 keep popping open?

A:

The hinges are okay so the next step is to check the door itself. See the rear door image below part key 47.

When your son leaned on the door it must have been bent ever so slightly as to not be noticeable. You say the door feels like it is under tension to open then the rear door is bowed slightly and where it is bowed it will contact the cabinet first so that by the time the strike hits the door catch it is under tension and ready to open with any additional pressure.

As the clothes tumble they can push against the door and if the door already has some tension then it will pop open.

Large loads can do this but since the problem didn't start till after your son leaned on the door the most likely problem is the rear door is slightly bent.

You can remove the door from the dryer and separate the front and rear door. Place the rear door with the front removed on a flat surface and see if it looks square or if it is bowed in the middle.

Of course the strike and catch, part number 279570, could be the problem and you might try changing them before we consider replacing the rear door.

The 279570 door strike kit is available from the following link: Sears PartsDirect .

I hope this information helps to resolve this problem. If the 279570 door strike kit does not solve this problem then replacing the rear door 8066045 is the next option to repair this problem.
