Question and Answers

Q:

Kenmore 80 series will not start 11066814690 Kenmore Electric dryer

A:

Thank you for choosing sears I would be happy to help you with your dryer. Upon researching model11066814690; based on the description provided, it sounds like you may need to replace the timer. The grinding noise that you are hearing every time you try to start the dryer is more than likely the timer trying to start the cycle. I have posted a link below of the timer.

I trust that this information will help you, thank you have a great day.

Q:

Dry won't start

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

In order to provide any model specific troubleshooting, I will need to know the model number of the dryer. Without having the model number I can only provide general information.

To begin with, the heating element requires a 220 volt power source in order to heat. If one of the two house circuit breakers dedicated for the dryer has tripped, the dryer can run but it will not heat. Locate the two (2) house circuit breakers dedicated for the dryer and reset both circuit breakers. Flip both breakers off and on 2-3 times and then see if the dryer will start and heat.

If the dryer will not start after resetting both circuit breakers; the voltage supply should be measured and confirmed at the terminal block at the back of the dryer where the power cord attaches. The voltage supply is measured across the two outside terminals and it should measure 220-240 volts. And then from each outside terminal to the center terminal should measure 110-120 volts. NOTE: I do not recommend making any voltage measurements unless you have experience and feel safe and confident in doing so, otherwise I suggest calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your Kenmore dryer.

If the voltage supply is correct, thermal cut-off, operating thermostat, high limit thermostat and heating element will need to be disconnected and each one tested for continuity with an Ohm meter. Also, if the timer is not closing terminals BK and R when set, the heating element will not heat. If the door switch or thermal fuse is faulty; the dryer will not start.

 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 along with the model number of the dryer.

Well joey I believe the model number is 11066814690 the serial number is MG1113777 I think. The dryer worked before and then just one day it stopped heating.

Justin; I added an image below and I traced the two circuits to the heater. Each circuit must provide 120 volts to the heating element. The heating element must have 240 volts when measured across the two leads of the heating element or it will not heat. Also, each one of the components in the circuit must have continuity or the heater will not get the correct voltage. The timer contact BK and R must close in order to provide the line one (L1) voltage to the operating thermostat, thermal cutoff, and high limit. When the motor is running; the motor centrifugal switch must close contacts M2 to M1 in order to complete the line 2 (L2) voltage to one lead of the element. You also said earlier the dryer will not start now. Check the thermal fuse with the two blue wires on the blower wheel housing too. The thermal fuse must measure continuity or the dryer will not start. If the door switch is not closing and completing the neutral circuit to the push to start switch, the dryer will not start. I recommend disconnecting the wires from each component and then using an Ohm meter, check across the male terminals for continuity. Use the wiring diagram I added below and it should help you diagnose the issue. Before testing the components, be sure and confirm the dryer is getting the proper voltage of 220 volts across the two outside terminals at the terminal block where the power cord attaches. NOTE: If you do not have experience and feel safe and confident in measuring the voltage, I strongly suggest calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your dryer.

Hey Joey So I used an ohm meter (I think I used it right) and tested every single thing in the back. I got readings back on mostly everything. I don't know what the reading ment. The only thing I didn't get a reading back on was the thermo cut off that the thing at the top of the heater box. Now the other thing I was going to tell u is. I don't know for sure if I hooked the wires up correctly when I hooked the element and high limit thermo back up. I thought I did but I'm second guessing if I did or not. Both of them have a solid red wire and a red/white wire. I've tried to read the wire diagram but not to sure how to read it. Hopefully that helps you out to figure out what is wrong. Thank you for your help

Justin: I added the wiring diagram above in my last reply and I traced the heater circuit in red. Each one of the components in the circut must measure continuity with theOhm meter or the dryer will not heat. If you did not measure any continuity across the two terminals on the thermal cut-off, the thermal cut-off is open/faulty. The dryer will not heat if the thermal cut-off is faulty. Be sure to disconnect the two wires from the component before measuring across the two male terminals for continuity. If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service calling 1-800-4-MY-HOME

Hi Danny,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

I am sorry you are having problems with your dryer.

The thermal cutoff and the high limit come as a kit (part number 279816) and they should be replaced at the same time. Considering the age of your dryer I recommend you replace the heating element (part number 279838) while you�re at it. It is hard to say whether the failure of the cutoff was just age related or due to a high temperature event, but this would be a good reason the heating element should be replaced also.

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

Thanks again for using Manage My Life.
