Dryer 11066742501 Kenmore Residential dryer

A:

Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com
 
I am sorry and do understand your frustration when there is trouble with the dryer not drying.
 
Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Kenmore Dryer model number 11066742501.

First thing for safety and concerns to keep dryer running well is to check the lint screen and vent of air flow going out of the house.   If clogged up it could cause heating problems on any dryer.
 
To prevent a Blocked Vent Hood, once a year: 
 
1.  Clean any lint blockage from the exhaust vent hood.
2.  Make sure the vent hood flappers move freely.
3.  Check for screen/grate openings that allow bird or rodent nests.
4.  Replace exhaust vent hood if damaged.
5.  Check for good air flow while running the dryer.
Note: Poor airflow or decreased airflow indicates further vent system cleaning is needed.

If the dryer is heating even a little bit then it will not be the heating element.   I have below the items to look at with an ohmmeter to check on which part or parts  you might be in need of.

When it comes to Electric dryers here are all the options to check on when not heating.
All can be checked with an Ohm meter for its continuity open or closed.
 
You can see all these on the link below when clicked on.
 
Heating element which is key number 14
 
Thermal cut off switch which is both key 1 and key 34 together
 
ON the back of the blower is thermal fuse key number 59
 
Also on the back of the blower internal thermostat key number 42
 
Make sure you always keep  your lint screen areas clean.

Q:

I have a Kenmore dryer model number 110.66742501. I have a question on the operating thermostat vs timer issue.

A:

Diagnosing appliance problems can be challenging. While you wait for the expert answer, you can check some information I found at a web site. I added the link to Sears Parts Direct also so you can view the schematics. Hope this helps!

A:

In order for the timer to advance in the auto dry cycles the timer contact TM and OR must close and the heating element must be intact. The timer motor requires 220 volts applied to it or it will not advance. The thermostat will have nothing to do with advancing the timer on this specific model. I recommend checking the Orange wire for a loose or bad connection at both ends. At the end of time cycle the timer will have to close either TM to WB or TM to OR in order to advance to the OFF position. See the timer switch chart and wiring diagram I added in the image below. Note: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before servicing the dryer.

I have been reading it may not be the timer but a resistor, not sure if my model 110.66742501has a resistor since I do not see a reference on the diagram. Would anyone have any info if this model still has a resistor before I open and install the new timer since once opened it is non returnable.
