Question and Answers

Q:

My dryer model number is 110.96281800. It doesn't start at all and I was wondering if a faulty thermal fuse will cause that. The part # is 3392519

A:

A dryer is a very convenient appliance so when it begins to malfunction, it can be a big head-ache. i did some research and provided a link to a similar question and answer for the fuse. I hope this will shed a little more light on the issue until the Expert responds to your question in more detail within 24 to 48 hours.

Thanks Julio I did the ohms test on the fuse and it was bad but I wanted to be sure that a bad thermal fuse would cause the dryer not to run. Didn't want to order an expensive part for no reason.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Yes; a faulty thermal fuse can prevent the dryer from starting. The thermal fuse #3392519 for Kenmore dryer model 110.96281800 can be ordered from Sears Parts Direct.

NOTE: Be sure to disconnect the power cord from the power source before removing the back panel and replacing the thermal fuse.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Q:

new dryer timer not respondsing

A:

Replacing dryer parts seems like a good home project but when there are unexplained problems it can become frustrating. I checked the archives here at Manage My Life and located two previous posts that may help while you wait for the expert response. I also added a link to Sears Home Services if you decide to schedule an experienced technician to help. I attached the links below.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

If the timer is not advancing I would suspect the timer motor is not getting the proper voltage. The voltage supply to the little timer motor will need to be measured using a voltage meter. You will have to check the voltage across the timer terminals labeled TM and WB and also across BK and TM with the timer set to 60 minutes (Time Dry). If 120 volts is measured across TM and WB, this would indicate that contact TM and WB is not closing meaning a faulty timer. If your measure 120 volts across terminal BK and TM, the timer motor should be running and causing the timer to advance unless the new timer is faulty.

I added an image below of the wiring diagram and timer to reference. I also traced the timer motor circuit in red. NOTE: I do not recommend checking the voltage unless you have experience and feel safe and confident in doing so; otherwise I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your dryer.

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 .

Q:

What else can be wrong when the timer doesn't shut off at the end of the cycle on my Kenmore model 110.96281800 dryer and I have already replaced the timer?

A:

The timer was a good start but if the new timer is still not advancing to off the part most likely to cause this problem is the resistor part number 279872.

The resistor controls the voltage to the timer in the last portion of the cycle. While the dryer is heating the resistor prevents voltage from running the timer and when the dryer stops heating the resistor allows voltage to the timer to advance it.

If the resistor is open then the timer will never advance to off.

You changed the timer so now check for an orange wire on the timer. The orange wire leads to the resistor. The resistor can be checked for resistance if you have access to a volt/ohm meter and are comfortable using it. The image below contains the wiring diagram that shows the resistor and may be helpful resolving this problem. Remember to unplug the dryer first.

I found the resister it has continuity. My timer does not move at all,if you set it on any time it stays their.for instance set it on 30 minutes and a hour later it will still be on 30 minutes or 2 hours later it doesn;t move it just sets there and clicks.The new one does the same except it doesn' even click.
