Question and Answers

Q:

Dryer will not heat/dry and will not turn off 11066112500 Kenmore Dryer

A:

Thank you for contacting Sears. I will be more than happy to assist you with your Kenmore dryer.

I can understand the frustration of your dryer not functioning properly, after researching model number 110.66112500. The issue seems like it can be coming from the timer. The timer may need to be replaced due to the unit not heating and not shutting off this is what the timer controls. The part number for the timer is 8299777. Replacing the timer should fix the issue.

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

*Safety disclaimer before you try and repair the unit make sure the power supply is disconnected. There may be sharp parts to the unit that can cause injury to you if not careful. If you don’t not feel comfortable checking this yourself you can request a technician by visiting www.SearsHomeService.com*

Q:

no turning drum with heat 11066112500 Kenmore Dryer

A:

Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com. It is unfortunate to hear that you are having issues with your 
and I do understand your frustration. Glad to help out. I'm looking at your model number 11066112500 and the problem with your dryer could be the switch. Your dryer does have a belt though and I would suspect a belt before I would anything else. The belt on this machine sits on the very back of the drum where it is not visible unless you have the machine pulled down to a certain point. It's not like the ones where the belt wraps around the center section of the drum. 
 
I suspect the belt as being the problem more than the switch simply because you said it is still heating. Normally if a switch fails, the machine will not heat or turn the drum.  Here is a video that will help with your repair. Just click the blue link above to be taken to the page. If you have further questions please resubmit your question for further information.
 
Thank you for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com.

The closet model number I was able to bring up was 11066112500. A belt should be available for most of the Kenmore dryers. The model number should have a 110 to start with. Please confirm the model number is correct and I will try to assist you finding the correct belt.

This is a fairly common situation. Having to re-dry clothing is expensive over the long run. There are several reasons why this may be occurring. I have provided a link below that will open to a full page of reports centered on your area of concern. Review these different links and you will likely get a viable lead to follow.

Thank you for submitting your question. Your description indicates a lack of airflow over the heating element. When the lint filter or vent system is restricted it will cause the heating element to short cycle on the high limit thermostat and take a very long time to dry clothes. I recommend disconnecting the vent hose from the back of the dryer and dry one load. If it dries in the normal amount of time, then the vent system is restricted and needs to be inspected and cleaned. Also, with the vent hose disconnected, the outlet air temperature when set on high heat should reach around 150 degrees when measured with a thermometer. If the temperature blowing out the exhaust does not reach 150 degrees you could be experiencing an issue with a bad operating (3387134) or high limit thermostat (3977767). You can measure both thermostats with ohms/volt meter. You'll want to get a reading of zero for both to know that they're good. If you get a reading other than zero, the thermostat is bad and needs to be replaced. You can order parts from our Sears Parts Direct web site. I hope this information helps. Please reply back to this thread if you require further assistance with this repair. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The first thing to check is the two (2) circuit breakers dedicated for the dryer which would be located inside the house circuit breaker. Locate the two circuit breakers and reset both circuit breakers by flipping them both Off and ON 2-3 times and then see if the dryer will start. If it does not start; the voltage supply to the dryer should be measured at the back of the dryer where the power cord attaches. The voltage must measure 120 volts when measuring across the center terminal to each one of the outside terminal. If you measure 120 volts across the center terminal to each outside terminals then I would check the thermal fuse for continuity. NOTE: I do not recommend checking voltage unless you have experience and feel safe and confident in doing so; otherwise I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your dryer.

If the thermal fuse fails it will break the voltage supply to the motor. The thermal fuse is located on the blower wheel housing and is accessed from the rear of the dryer. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before removing the rear panel.

I added a YouTube video showing how to test the thermal fuse and how to access the thermal fuse.

This may be the issue. If not, please reply and I will be glad to assist you further.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The heating element itself can't make a clicking sound but the high limit thermostat will click open and break one leg of voltage from the heating element causing the heater to shut off. The high limit is the component located at the top side of the heater housing. Once the high limit cools and resets then it will heat again. The high limit could be weak or you may have restriction or blockage in the venting system. A lack of air flow through the heating element housing will cause the high limit to trip open. If there is no air flow or a lack of air flow through the heater housing the high limit thermostat will click and break the circuit to the element.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Hi Scott,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life. I know how frustrating it can be when appliances do not function properly.

I recommend checking the circuit breakers. When you saw the sparks it may have tripped the breakers. The next thing I recommend checking is the door switch. Here is a video that will demonstrate gaining access to the door switch; Video . Always unplug or de-energize electrical equipment before removing covers or attempting service. Be careful and wear appropriate hand protection when working around sharp metal parts.

You can temporarily bypass the door switch to see if the dryer will start. Here is how; with the dryer still unplugged, gain access to the door switch harness and disconnect it. Place an insulated piece of wire between the blue wire and the white wire in the portion of the harness going back away from the switch (see image below). Tape this into position with electrical tape making sure it will not come into contact with anything else. Plug the dryer in and try starting a cycle. If the dryer starts, you need to replace the door switch (part number 3406102). Do not leave the door switch bypassed. This is for testing purposes only.

The remaining checks will require the use of an ohm/volt meter and you will have to perform ohm checks and/or live voltage checks. If you have a meter and are confident in your ability to safely perform these checks, reply to this post and I will be happy to assist you in any way I can.

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 .

Here is a link that you may use to view the parts list diagram and for parts purchases; Sears Parts Direct .

I hope this is helpful. 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.

Thanks again for using Manage My Life.

Q:

Low Voltage at 240V Receptacle

Appliance electrical requirements are important. The model of the dryer may make a difference in this situation so if you can add the model to this thread it will help the expert provide a better answer.

Just found out that according to my power company, my system is actually 208V, and my dryer should have no trouble with it (Kenmore 110.66112500). As far as I know, it is typical for appliances to handle both 240V and 208V with no problems or necessary adjustments.

A:

Your power company is correct. The dryer will work normally with the 208 volt power. The heating element might not get quite as hot as it would with 240 volt power but this will not significantly affect the performance of the dryer. Let us know if you need more help.
