Question and Answers


Dryer Only Runs While Start Button is Pressed 11063942100 Kenmore Dryer


Thank you for your question. Since the dryer will stop when you release the start button and then restart if you push on the button again. The problem could be your push to start button you will have to check for continuinty with a multi meter, You my also want to check your door switch however it is likely that the motor is tripping out on the thermal overload. A friction problem with the dryer drum is a common cause for this problem. With the dryer empty, open the door and see if the drum will turn reasonably freely by hand (keep in mind that the belt is still on the motor pulley and will provide some resistance). If the drum is difficult to turn, I recommend that you unplug the dryer and open the cabinet using the procedure in the image below. (You should not have to remove the drum unless you need to check or change the support rollers). If you are able to determine and fix the cause of excessive friction in the dryer then you may be able to resolve this problem yourself.

Excessive lint around the motor could also cause the dryer motor to overheat and shut off. Check for excessive lint around the motor after opening the cabinet.

You do not need a wire diagram for this type of rpair, I do suggest taking pictures as you go so that everything is in the correct place before starting the machine to test it.

If you have anymore questions or concrns please reply to this post.

replace thermar fuse for residential dryer



Thanks for contacting  ManageMyLife. I understand how frustrating it is having trouble with your appliance.

The thermal fuse can be changed easy enough.  I will change the fuse by only removing the bottom panel on the front of the dryer.  I am providing you different views of the fuse and if the bottom panel is removed, after power is removed from the dryer, you could use a Phillips or a 1/4 small socket and ratchet and flashlight to locate and remove the fuse, disconnect the old one and install the wires on the new and put it back on the shroud.  If that is not happening, the top needs to be loose and the front panel could be removed opening more access to the fuse.  Remove the lint screen before  removing the front panel. 

Please feel free to let me know if you need further assistance. We are always here to help.

Thank you for using

Why is my Kenmore model 11063942100 dryer not heating?


If the dryer is running but not heating the causes can be the thermal cut-off, hi-limit thermostat, element, motor switch but the most likely cause of this dryer to run but not heat is the heater relay and/or control.

The first image below shows how to access the heater relay and control by raising the console. Remember to unplug the dryer first.

The Heater relay has two heavy solid red wires and two smaller red/white wires. If you have access to a volt/ohm meter then you check continuity across the two terminals where the two red/white wires are hooked up to the relay. If the circuit is open then the relay will need to be replaced.

The other check to make at the heater read is to check for 48DC volts to the relay from the control. Do this only if you're comfortable and confident in using a volt/ohm meter and use extreme caution checking voltage.

If you read 48DC volts but the dryer is not heating most likely the relay is bad. If you don't read any voltage then the control is most likely the problem.

The 2nd image contains more information on checking a no heat problem on this dryer. The thermal cut-off, hi-limit and element can be checked by removing the lower access panel. See the 3rd image for a picture on how to do that.

If you don't have a meter or don't know how to use one there is another way to check the heater relay but extreme caution must be used. Without a meter you can "jump" the relay and see if the dryer will heat. To "jump" the relay with the dryer unplugged remove the two heavy solid red wires and join them together with a small jumper wire. Put a little electrical tape around the connection and don't let it touch any metal and with caution run the dryer and see if it heats. If it does heat then the relay or control is the problem. Without a meter it will not be possible to determine which is bad.

I hope this information helps to resolve the no heating problem. If you have other questions then submit a question with any additional details for further assistance.
