Q:

Automatic dry problem 11076812690 Kenmore Electric dryer

Q:

My kenmore dryer model no. 110.76812690 shuts off after 10-15mins

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

If the dryer will restart after it sits and cools for 10-15 minutes and quits running again, I supect the motor is bad and is overheating and shutting off on the motor thermal overload. The motor will most likely have to be replaced. If the motor happens to be covered in a layer of lint, this could also cause the motor to over heat. If the motor is not covered in lint, the motor will most likely have to be replaced. Also, if for any reason the ddrum cannot turn freely, this too could cause the motor to overheat and shut off.

 I added an image below showing how to remove the front panel if want to look at the motor. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before servicing. 

If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link:Sears Home Services.

Q:

whistling dryer

A:

I can understand your alarm over this whistling sound you're hearing when you engage the gas.  I've located a link that will discuss the different ways to thread or seal a gas line for a dryer.  Click here to view the link.  Though this link discusses a different model number,
the mechanics are likely going to be very similar.Keep in mind that an expert will be
responding within the next two business days if not sooner and will likely offer you more information and
instruction.  If you feel you would need further assistance,  or if you feel like you would be more comfortable
having an expert resolve your issue, I would strongly recommend Sears Home Service.com.  Click here to open to
their page for home service.  I hope this will help you and have a nice day.

Thanks for contacting ManageMyLife.com. I understand how frustrating it is having trouble with your dryer whistling. We are here to help. The whistling noise can have several causes. They are as follows:

  1 There is an air leak. If the vent hose has a small hole or is not connected to the dryer properly, it can whistle. The vent hose needs to be reinstalled and clamped properly or replaced if there is a hole.

  2 The regulator is not set properly. If lp gas is being used and the dryer was not converted properly, it can whistle. Usually the whistle source is the regulator. The regulator needs to be set properly or it may be defective and it should be replaced.

  3  The lint screen is dirty or not in place properly. A dirty lint screen can cause a restriction. The air blowing against the restriction can whistle. Also, if the lint screen is not fully seated, it can whistle. The leaking air can whistle. Just clean the filter and install it properly, should stop the whistle noise.  I hope this helps.
