Question and Answers

Q:

my kenmore dryer heats up for about 20 min and then shuts off before the cycle ends

A:

Having a Dryer not work properly can be quite a disappointment. especially with the Holidays approaching. I have taken the time to research on the Manage My Life website and have found some useful information. While you are waiting for your expert to reply I have provided a link below. Hope you do find this information useful. Happy Holidays.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern. I must assume when you say that it shuts off before the end of the cycle that you mean the motor is shutting off and not the heat. Based on this assumption, the motor is likely overheating and shutting off due to the motor protector that is located inside the motor if you have to wait a few minutes before it will start again.

Now, if you're indicating that the burner quits igniting after 20 minutes, then the solenoid coils on the burner valve are likely faulty and would need to be replaced.

Additional information would be helpful in understanding the exact symptom. Do not submit a new question, just reply in the thread. Thank you.

I'm sorry, I was not being clear, the dryer heats up for about 20 min and then the heat shuts off not the motor. We have cleaned all vents. Is replacing the coils something I could do myself and if so about how much to repair? I'm trying to figure out if it is worth repairing or if I need to buy a new one. Thanks

Thanks Karyn for replying back. Based on your reply, the solenoid coils will need to be removed and replaced. The front panel will have to taken off to access the solenoid coils mounted on top of the gas valve. The solenoid coil kit is part #279834 which can be ordered from www.partsdirect.com. I added the basic instructions in the images. It is a simple repair.
