Question and Answers

Q:

Why did my Kenmore model 110.87863100 gas dryer quit in mid-cycle?

A:

From the description you give and the parts you have already changed the most likely cause of your problem is an open thermal fuse.

On most gas dryers an open thermal fuse would only prevent the dryer from heating but on this older style dryer if the thermal fuse is open then there is no voltage anywhere.

For this problem I'd suggest first checking the thermal fuse. It is located in the back of the dryer on the blower exhaust. See the images below for how to take the back off and access the thermal fuse. Remember to unplug the dryer first.

The problem could also be a bad motor or even door switch but I'd recommend starting with the thermal fuse.

The fuse can be checked for continuity if you have access to a volt/ohm meter and are comfortable using it.

Without a meter there is another way to check if the fuse if the problem. With the dryer unplugged remove the two wires off the thermal fuse and join (jump) them together. Put a little electrical tape around the connection and don't let it touch anything metal. Then with caution plug the dyer in and see if it will run.

If it runs then replace the 3392519 thermal fuse immediately and don't try to catch up on laundry with the fuse bypassed. The fuse is available at the following link: Sears PartsDirect .

I hope this information is helpful to you but submit another question with any additional details for further assistance.

Q:

How do I hook up a 4 prong plug on a Kenmore dryer model 110.87863100?

A:

The model number 110.87863100 that you submitted is a GAS dryer and not an electric dryer. The gas dryer has a power cord already attached for 110-120 vac only. Four prong dryer cords are for 220vac electric dryers only.

Resubmit the model number of your electric dryer for model specific information.
