Question and Answers

Q:

Dryer won't run 11062982101 Kenmore Electric dryer

A:

Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I will be more than happy to assist you with your Kenmore Dryer.

From the information you have provided above, it sounds like you may be in need of a new motor relay switch. Once you release the start switch the signal no longer connects, the relay is what keeps the signal engaged to the motor letting it know to run. I’d recommend replacing the motor relay. As far as the dryer not having any heat, it can be a couple of things. First I’d suggest taking a look at the thermal fuse. If the fuse is blown it will not allow the dryer to produce heat. Next would be the thermostat. This is located in the blower housing just like the fuse. And Lastly the actual element itself could be gone.

I hope you found this information useful. Again thank you for choosing Sears, we appreciate your business, have a great day.

Q:

Why does my Kenmore dryer stop running when I let go of the start button?

A:

From what you are describing it sounds like the even heat control board is not providing the proper voltage to the motor & heater relays. When you press in on the start switch button, the control board should provide 48 volts DC to the motor relay. This keeps the relay contacts closed in order for the motor to keep running when you let go of the push to start switch button. This same 48 volts DC also closes the heater relay contacts.

Usually replacing the even heat control board will take care of this problem. There could also be other issues since the dryer is not heating: the thermistor, heating element, tripped breaker, thermostats, wiring harness & motor.

All of these components will require the use of a volt/ohm meter & gaining access to the inside of the machine. I would recommend calling a service technician to diagnose & repair.

I have this same issue, and I'm suspecting that by the time a service technician comes to diagnose and potentially repair, that I might be better off just buying a new machine. Might I be right?

Thanks for contacting ManageMyLife.com. I understand how frustrating it is having trouble with your dryer not working properly. We are here to help. There is several reasons why the dryer is turning off. Since the timer was replaced twice, I recommend checking the wire harness. The harness may have a bad terminal on it. Also, the circuit board may be having a problem. That would cause the motor relay to shut off the dryer. The motor terminal block may have a bad connection. The image below is a schematic, that should help with troubleshooting the problem. I also recommend using a multimeter to check the wire harness. I hope this helps.
