Q:

Dryer Issue 11072912100 Kenmore Dryer

A:

Thank you for choosing SearsPartsDirect.com and being a valued member.  I can certainly understand how frustrating it can be when your dryer will not work properly.


If it's the motor buzzing/humming when the start button is pushed then it likely has a bad motor. Open the door and manually reach in and rotate the drum in the counter clockwise direction for a couple of complete revolutions and then shut the door and see if the dryer will start. If the dryer starts; this would indicate a bad motor and it will need to be replaced. If it does not start and continues to hum try this; Open the door and press and hold the door switch in. Rotate the drum counter clockwise and have some one press start while the drum is turning. If the dryer starts, replace the motor.

Q:

Gas usage

A:

Thank you for your question. Keeping gas and electric usage in line with budgets is important in today's households.  Your dryer is a heavy duty super capacity dryer. The specs for this size dryer are;

Volts/Hz/Amps 120/60/6

Gas Burner BTU/Hour 22,000

Gas Pipe Size (O.D. Inches) 3/8

Gas dryers use an average of 17,000 BTU per complete cycle, or 0.17 therm. By national average for every four loads dried, two will be at high heat, one will be at medium heat, and one at low heat. Average maximum BTU consumption at high heat is 25,000 per hour and medium and low are both 20,000, so 2 times 25,000 plus 2 times 20,000 equals 90,000 per hour, divided by 3/4 (45 minute cycle), and divided again by four loads equals 17,000 BTU per complete cycle or 0.17 therms. The gas costs roughly $.11 for an hour. The gas costs roughly $.11 for an hour. Electricity to power the drum uses .15 per kilowatt hour, resulting in a cost of $.12 per hour to run the dryer.

If you are thinking of a new dryer, new models are more efficient.  I would advise one with a moisture sensor to help monitor how much heat is need. There are many newer models to choose from at Sears . Thank you for using Manage My Life.
