Question and Answers

Q:

Kenmore gas dryer 110.87581110 will not run.

A:

Hi,

Thanks for contacting ManageMyLife.  I understand how frustrating it is having trouble with your appliance.

This dryer has been useful for years but now I believe it has 2 problems.

The first problem is the motor centrifugal switch.  It seems to be stuck on the run position.  This allows a ground to the gas valve and the valve will make heat.  Because the switch on the motor is stuck, the motor hums and tries to start using the run windings and not the start winding in the motor.   

You could check the motor and use a vac. to clean the motor and the switch area of the motor,  BE SURE to disconnect the dryer from the wall outlet before cleaning this area.

The other issue, the dryer not advancing to the off position in the automatic cycle is the small control board the uses the sensors to dry the clothes.   You could attempt to clean the sensors which are mounted inside the drum area on the right rear wall, the sensors appear to be shorted out, and this will not allow the timer to advance to the off position. 

If the motor and the small board the sensors are connected to are needed the cost would be for the parts around 240 dollars without shipping. 

If this turns out to be the case I would recommend a new dryer , which you can get starting at the price of around 400.00 dollars.

If you decide to have a Technician check your appliance, call this number to get the service call arranged 1-888-266-6317.

Please feel free to let me know if you need further assistance. We are always here to help.

Thank you for using ManageMyLife.com.

You could have a number of problems that would prevent the dryer from running. I recommend that you check the electrical outlet first. If the dryer has a drum lamp, see if that light turns on when you open the dryer door. If it does not have a light, then I recommend that you plug a small lamp or appliance into that dryer outlet to make sure that it is working.

If the outlet is okay, then you could have one of these failures that would prevent the dryer from running:

  1. Blown thermal fuse. NOTE: The thermal fuse in many gas dryers will not prevent the motor from running but I looked at the wiring diagram for this dryer and see that the thermal fuse will prevent the motor from running in this model. You can access that thermal fuse by unplugging the dryer and removing that back panel. The thermal fuse is on the blower housing. The image below shows the location of that component on your dryer. You can test that thermal fuse as shown in this brief repair video: Thermal Fuse Testing . If that fuse is blown, then it will need to be replaced. You can order that part from the Sears PartsDirect website. The part number for that thermal fuse is 3392519. Be sure that you unplug the dryer before accessing and replacing internal components.
  2. If that thermal fuse is okay, you could have a problem with that door switch. You can check the continuity through that door switch in a similar manner as described for the thermal fuse. With that switch pushed in, you should measure continuity through that component. Here is a video that shows how to access that door switch: Dryer Door Switch Replacement . If that door switch is bad, it will need to be replaced.
  3. A bad push-to-start switch can also prevent the dryer from running. Here is a video that shows how to access that component: Dryer Start Switch Replacement . Your dryer will be different from the one shown in that video but the basic access procedure is about the same. You may need more remove screws from the front of your console and then flip that console up and back over the top of the back panel to access that push-to-start switch. You can check for continuity with that switch pushed in. If that switch is bad, it will need to be replaced.
  4. If all of the above components are okay, you could have a bad timer, a failed drive motor or a failure in that wiring circuit for the motor.

I hope that this information helps. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

Q:

Why won't my dryer heat properly?

A:


It is difficult to predict the proper fix for your problem without proper diagnosis of the dryer components. Because it is a gas dryer, I recommend that you call a service technician to analyze and repair your dryer.

Based on your symptoms, here is some troubleshooting that may help:

  • Check the lint trap. Make sure that it is cleaned after every cycle.
  • Make sure that the flexible vent behind the dryer is not kinked or clogged.
  • Check the exhaust ducting from your dryer to the outside of your house for air flow restrictions.

These steps will help eliminate air flow problems as a cause for your symptoms.

If you have no air flow problems, a technician will be needed to perform resistance and voltage checks to find the failed component.
