Question and Answers

Q:

What is wrong with my Kenmore Elite Model 110.65926401 dryer when it has stopped working?

A:

You could have a broken drive belt that would prevent the motor from running or you could also have a blown thermal fuse is the belt is okay.

Unplug the dryer and remove the bottom front service panel as shown in the first image below. With this service panel off, you should be able to see whether you have a broken drive belt. If the belt is broken then you can order a replacement belt from the Sears PartsDirect website. The part number for the belt is 661570. The procedure for replacing the belt is shown in the second image. Your dryer console is different than the one shown in the second image. Your console will hinge up by releasing the clips as shown in the third image.

If the belt is okay, then you could have a blown thermal fuse. With the dryer still unplugged , try taping together the wires that go to the thermal fuse (shown in the first image). This will bypass the fuse for a short test. With these wires connected, reassemble the dryer and see if the motor will run. If it does the replacing the thermal fuse will fix your dryer problem. The part number for the thermal fuse is 3392519. NOTE: This fuse must be replaced. Do not continue to run the dryer with this fuse bypassed. Also, check the exhaust vent duct system of the dryer for a clog or restriction. An unresolved restriction in the exhaust air flow will cause the thermal fuse to blow shortly after it is replaced.

A bad timer, failed drive motor or a break in the wiring of the motor circuit could also prevent the motor from running. If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details.
