Q:

Belt too long? 11072974103 Kenmore Gas dryer

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

Based upon the dryer model of 110.72974103, the dryer repair kit of 4392067 is the correct kit. If the belt seems too long, it is probably not routed correctly around the idler and motor pulley. I have provided an image below to show the routing of the belt.

There are also some great YouTube videos you can watch to see how the belts are installed and routed. 

I hope this helps and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

You could have a bad motor relay, or a bad electronic control board in the console of the dryer that is causing this problem. The first image below shows a wiring diagram for your dryer with the motor start circuit traced in blue. Since the dryer starts and runs when you hold down that start switch, this indicates that every component in that circuit (including the wiring) is okay. You could have a failed start sense switch (the blue/black wire that is traced in pink on the wiring diagram). I recommend that you unplug the dryer and open the console as shown in the second image below. You will need to remove those end caps and then remove the hidden screw that you will find under those end caps on each side of the console. You can then flip the console up and over the back panel into the service position. The third image shows the location of components in that console. Check the blue/black start sense wire to make sure that it is connected properly. If you find no problems there, I recommend that you switch the motor relay and the heater relay (those parts are the exactly the same). You will need to completely disconnect all of the wires on each of those relays and physically move them to the new locations and connect all of the wires properly for this test. The wiring diagram and other images shown below should help you switch those components.

If the dryer runs properly after switching those relays, then replacing that bad relay (part 3405281) should fix this problem.

If the dryer still won't continue to run after switching those relays, then you will probably need to replace the electronic control board (part W10116564).

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 .

I hope this is helpful. Check the things I have covered here and if I may be of further assistance please reply to this post.

I think that it has something to do with the gas pressure, because the flames are not strong enough to go through the tunnel, instead the flames are wondering around the tunnel, and that it�ll make the limit to open. Pls let me know what do you think about this. Abraham

A:

I can understand your concern. You have received some good information but it does not pertain to this model. Based on the information listed about the flame, it could very well be a gas pressure problem. It could also be a gas valve problem. Make sure the gas line is not kinked and the gas shut off valve is fully open. Make sure the vent is clear also. A good check will be to remove the vent hose and run the dryer for a few minutes without the vent hose connected. If the flame is still wondering around in the tunnel, I recommend having a technician come out to check this. I'm listing a site you can access, to have a tech come out.
