Q:

Broken Belt Switch Kenmore Dryer

A:

I can understand how confusing it is when wires are involved in a repair. I found the diagram for your dryer in Sears Parts Direct. The belt switch is number 16 in the "cabinet diagram." I have attached the link below, so you can get a better look at were your parts for your dryer are located. I hope this works out for you!!!!!!!!!!! http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/Dryer-Parts/Model-11096584110/0582/0151200/10034419/00002?blt=06&prst=&shdMod=

Thank You...I have the diagram. It does not show where the wires connect. There are 2 wires number 6 and 16 in the diagram, both look identical and thus there are 4 connectors. There are only 3 possible post connections, 2 on the switch and 1 on the motor...please help me!...scratching my head...

Thank you Mark T!...You gave me exactly what I was looking for. A picture is worth a thousands answers. I hooked it up according to your pics, put it all back together and it fired right up. I knew it had to be that switch not being connected right. I had tested everything, and I knew that was my problem. I thank you again sir and my wife thanks you. I no longer have to sleep in the dog house :)

Mark T, My motor, 279787 does not have the terminal shown where the upper, dark blue wire connects, shown in your photograph. Futher, I have directions entitled "Rewire instructions for 279787 with broken belt switch" that came with my motor. These instructions direct the installer to hook up one wire to the broken belt switch. Where does the other side of the broken belt switch go to on the motor? I have seen a number of people asking this in other forums. One of them is in this one with another expert. There was no answer given. Help.

I am sorry you are having a problem connecting the wire from the belt switch. In the image below, I have marked where the wire should connect on the motor overload. I hope this is helpful. Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark T.

I happy and amazed that I found the exact answer to my somewhat obscure question at the top of a Google search. It turns out that I wired the switch correctly, but I wasn't sure until now, and I'd hate to blow another motor. I called the other technician who has more experience than I do with appliances. He's the one that removed the old motor and then didn't have time to finish the job once the new motor arrived (like I've got the time?). But he didn't recall disconnecting anything except the harness plug and had no idea where the second wire from the switch should attach. So now I'm registered with "Manage My Life", so maybe I can help out by answering a question or two. My first words of advice are: Avoid working on 27" stack washer dryer units installed in a 29" closet in a galley kitchen 36 inches wide. Your back and hips will appreciate it.
