Question and Answers

Q:

My dryer Kenmore elite model 110.61064000 serial # mk3901503 only works for 15 min then stops and wont turn back on for about another hour.

A:

I can appreciate the inconvenience this must be for you.  Most of the time if a dryer shuts down mid cycle then it's because the thermistor shorts out when it heats up.  I am also wondering that it might be the motor.  There is a fuse that might prevent the dryer from running.   I have located a link that will discuss your situation in more detail.  Click here to view the link.  Though this link discusses a different model number, the mechanics are likely going to be very similar.Keep in mind that an expert will be responding within the next two business days if not sooner and will likely offer you more information and instruction.  If you feel you would need further assistance,  or if you feel like you would be more comfortable having an expert resolve your issue, I would strongly recommend Sears Home Service.com.  Click here to open to their page for home service.  I hope this will help you and have a nice day.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

If you selected an "Auto Dry Level" the Auto Dry Estimation indicator should also be on but you did not indicate if came on. 

If the towels are wet and it has full load, the estimated time should be greater than 30 minutes after it senses the moisture level.

I recommend selecting the Cotton/Towels cycle and instead of selecting the "Auto Dry Level", press the 'More Time" and set the time for 50 minutes and then start the dryer and see how long it runs. If it continues to stop in mid-cycle and have to cool down before it can be started, I suspect a problem with the motor. The motor could be covered in a fine layer of lint causing it to overheat and shut off by the thermal overload inside the motor. Once the motor cools and the thermal overload resets, the dryer will start and run again until it overheats.

There is panel located below the door that can be taken off in order to access and check the motor for lint. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before removing the lower access panel. 

I added an image below showing how to release the lower access 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.

Having your Dryer not heating properly can be really concerning. While you are waiting on an expert to answer your question, I found a great link in the Manage My Life website on why your Dryer not heating properly. You can also set service with a Sears technician. I have attached the links below. Have a nice day!

Here are some general troubleshooting steps for a dryer that will not start:

Open the door and see if the drum light turns on. If not, check the breakers (or fuses) and reset them if necessary. Make sure that the door is properly closed. If the door is closed properly, you could have a bad door switch that is preventing the dryer from starting. Most dryers have a thermal fuse (see image) that would prevent the dryer from starting. (NOTE: The thermal fuse on your particular model may be in a different location or you may not have one.) To check this fuse, you would need to unplug the dryer and remove the back panel. Pull the wires off of the thermal fuse (usually blue wires) and check the resistance across the leads of the fuse using a volt/ohm meter. You should measure near zero ohms of resistance (closed). If you measure infinite resistance (open), then the thermal fuse will need to be replaced. A wiring problem, motor failure or control (timer) failure could cause this problem. A technician is normally needed to diagnose and repair one of these types of failures.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern. I added an answer to your previous question along with some information in the link below. You likely have a faulty connection on the thermal fuse next to the thermistor or possibly replaced the thermal fuse with the new thermistor. It could also have a door switch or broken belt switch issue too. I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

A:

Salvatore: Based on the limited information and details it sounds like you may have a faulty User interface, control board or possibly a voltage supply issue. I recommend checking and confirming the voltage supply and then reply with your findings and the model number. NOTE: I do NOT recommend checking and verifying voltage unless you have experience and you feel safe and confident in doing so; otherwise I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your appliance.
