Hi,

Thanks for contacting ManageMyLife. I understand how frustrating it is having trouble with your product not working correctly.

Dryers dry by removing the moisture from the clothes by heat and out the vent to the outside of the home.  Usually dryers have two basic settings manual and automatic.  Manual is timed dry and you set the heat and the time of the dry cycle and the other is automatic and you set the heat and the dryer used sensor of some sort to control the time of the dry.  To accurately address the problem you have I would need to know the cycle and the Model number of the dryer. 

Please feel free to let me know if you need further assistance. We are always here to help.

Thank you for using ManageMyLife.com.

ods will be loose in the rocker arm. If one push rod has pressure on it, rotate the engine again and when it comes back to the top of the stroke neither push rod should have any pressure.

 

Use a feeler gauge to measure the clearance between the end of the push rod and the rocker arm.

The clearance on the intake valve should be .003.- 005 inches. The clearance on the exhaust valve should be .005-.007 inches.

If adjustment is required, loosen the allen set screw in the center of the nut on the rocker arm and adjust the nut to obtain the proper clearance. When you are through adjusting the clearance, tighten the set screw tight .

The intake push rod is aluminum, and the exhaust push rod is steel. This will help you determine which valve is which.

You could also have a worn lobe on the camshaft inside the engine. To test for this rotate the engine by hand and watch the rocker arms move. You should have about the same amount of lift on each rocker arm. If one or more rocker arms are barely moving, the lobe on the camshaft is worn.

Check the wiring between the battery and ground and the battery and the starter solenoid. A weak connection could cause this problem.

Hi John, Verify the voltage to the unit. Your voltage readings should be as follows. L1 to Neutral= 120 volts�L2 to Neutral= 120 volts�.L1 to L2= 240 volts. Then, at the console area ohm the dropping resistor to confirm the resistance of 4.4k ohms. This resistor controls the auto advance of the timer when using the automatic modes. The basic things should be checked also. A clean lint screen and the vent tube to the outside should also be clean. Please feel free to let me know if you need further assistance. We are always here to help. Thank you for using ManageMyLife.com. Bill

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

If the laundry center is getting the proper voltage of 220 volts, I suspect a faulty "thermal limiter". The thermal limiter is connected in a series circuit with the power supply to the motor. When the "thermal limiter" fails/opens; it breaks the voltage circuit to the dryer motor.

The thermal limiter (key#36) is located on the upper inner side of the rear dryer panel. I recommend removing the top panel in order to access the thermal limiter. If you have an Ohm meter; you can disconnect the thermal limiter and test it for continuity. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before servicing.

The thermal limiter is key# 36 as shown in the image I added below. The thermal limiter #134120900 for Kenmore dryer model 417.99570110 can be ordered from Sears Parts Direct.

Check the things I have covered here and if I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Joey, I am having a hard time getting the upper rear panel of the dryer off. I have removed all of the screws and then some only to find the upper rear panel is somehow attached to the drum apparatus. I have not encountered this problem before. Then ends of two screws are protruding from the middle of the upper rear panel. Any suggestions how to disconnect the upper rear panel from the drum apparatus so I can acces the thermal limiter?

A:

Stan: Do not attempt to remove REAR panel. _Remove only the panel on TOP of the dryer._ The rear drum bearing assembly is attached to the rear panel. This why you do not remove the rear panel, remove only the top panel of the dryer.
