Q:

Kenmore washer/dryer combo 417.97822700

A:

Thank you for your inquiry on your Kenmore Laundry Center, Model: 417.97822700. From reviewing the details on your model, if the dryer is running then the thermal limiter (fuse) is okay. The problem might be the timer, control thermostat, hi-limit thermostat, element or even the motor switch. The thermostats can be checked for continuity if a meter is available or they can be bypassed with a small piece of insulated wire is one is available. Remember to unplug the unit before trying to access any parts. You might not have to take completely apart. You can start with the top and access the hi-limit thermostat. You will also see the thermal limiter but it should be okay. The control thermostat is behind the transition panel between the washer and dryer. The timer and motor switch would require a meter to check. 

 

Safety Warning: Before beginning the repair, disconnect the direct power supply to the laundry center to prevent the risk of injury or any electrical shock.

If you don’t feel comfortable or confident in this repair, then you can have it repaired at home by a sears technician. I have the included a link to the website: Sears Home Services or call 1-800-469-4663.
