Q:

buzzer won't stop 110.96273100

A:

Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com and being a valued member. It is unfortunate to hear that you are having issues with your dryer and I do understand your frustration. Glad to help out. I'm looking at your model number 11096273100 and the buzzer staying on is usually controlled by the motor switch. The motor switch has a start and run position. The buzzer continues to buzz as long as the motor is turning. When the motor stops turning the buzzer should stop. The buzzer may be shorted to ground causing the problem. This would be difficult to find. If the motor switch is stuck in the run position then you might notice the dryer running before the start button is pressed. The buzzer is supposed to only buzz until the motor shuts off and the motor switch opens which breaks the neutral to the buzzer. When you open the door you do the same thing. It's possible the motor switch is stuck. 


A bad push to start switch will also cause both problems. The switch can be checked with a volt/ohm meter if you have access to one and are comfortable using it. The switch is normally open. See the wiring diagram for a picture of this. When you push the switch the motor starts but it sounds like the switch is already closed. 

If you have a meter, check continuity across the switch. It will show an open circuit, until you push the start button and then it should show a closed circuit until the start button is released and the circuit should show open again. 

You can remove the rear panel of the console to access the switch. Remember to unplug the dryer first. 

If you don't have a meter there is another way to check the switch if caution is used. One trick is to remove the white/red and black wire off the push to start switch. Let them hang loose but not touching anything. Try with caution plug the dryer in and select a cycle. Close the door and see if the dryer starts. If it runs then most likely the motor switch is bad. If it doesn't run then most likely the push to start switch is bad. 

If you still want to check things then the other trick is to start the dryer with the push to start switch connected then after the dryer starts remove the black wire from the push to start switch if individually connected or both wires if on a connector. The dryer should continue to run and at the end the buzzer should only stay on as long as the motor is turning. I trust this information will help you.

A:

I think I read elsewhere that the start button could be stuck, so I took the control panel apart again and made sure the start knob was securely in place, whereas it didn't seem it was pushed all the way in the first time, although I tested it and it worked before I locked all the panel pieces in place on the machine. I also made sure all connections were secure including the ground wires. Another thought my husband had was that putting it together the first time while it was in the run position instead of in-between cycles may have done it. At any rate, it worked properly the second time I put it back together. I don't know if any of that relates, but thank you for taking the time to answer my question.

Q:

Kenmore Electric Dryer: In Timed Drying Mode, dryer stops but buzzer does not. New Timer or New Resistor? 11096273100

A:

Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com. It is unfortunate to hear that you are having issues with your dryer and do understand your frustration. Glad to help out. Im looking at your model number 11096273100 and based on your symptom, I suspect it could have a stuck or welded contact inside the timer if the dryer is operating normally. If the burner is not coming on when the timer is set and the start button not pushed, then I suspect it will need a timer. If the burner is igniting when the timer is set without pushing start, then the motor centrifugal switch has a stuck contact.  

The motor centrifugal switch contacts 5M and 6M must open when the motor comes to a complete stop or the end of cycle signal will continue to buzz.  

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. I have included a link to our PartsDirect page where you can purchase the part you need to complete your repair.
