Q:

Belt too long? 11072974103 Kenmore Gas dryer

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

Based upon the dryer model of 110.72974103, the dryer repair kit of 4392067 is the correct kit. If the belt seems too long, it is probably not routed correctly around the idler and motor pulley. I have provided an image below to show the routing of the belt.

There are also some great YouTube videos you can watch to see how the belts are installed and routed. 

I hope this helps and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.

Q:

Kenmore Elite Model 47781701 will not fill with water, screens are clear, no code reading. what do I do Bill

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The power supply to the water inlet valves are controlled by the machine control board. The machine control board housing will be marked with VCH7 which will be the water inlet valve circuit connections. You may find this connection loose. If the connections and wires in the cold water circuit are Okay; I suspect a faulty control board if the board is not providing voltage to the cold water solenoid.

You unit also has a water heating element located at the lower front area of the tub. There is also a thermistor installed in the middle of the heating housing that is used to monitor the water temperature in the tub. You should check the thermistor measurement at 0 ohms with an Ohm meter.

Try the test provided below. 

The microcomputer/machine control unit is the central brains of the machine. The microcomputer control unit is attached to the side panel of the appliance frame.

To reach the microcomputer you will need to remove the top panel. To remove the microcomputer, place the screwdriver between the microcomputer and the side panel. Use the screwdriver as a lever, lift the microcomputer about 1/4 inch away from the side panel. This will free the locking pin. Hold the microcomputer and slide it backwards against the side panel until it is free.

Once the microcomputer is free, you can release the two (2) tabs on the side of the top protector cover and lift the top up. You can now access all of the microcomputer connections.

If you have anymore questions or concerns reply to this post.

Hi Joe,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

This can be caused by a couple of different things.

  1. Leaky inlet valves.
  2. Faulty control board.
  3. Siphon issue.
The first thing I recommend is unplugging the washer and taking the drain hose almost all the way out of the stand pipe. And then, after it sits for a few hours checking to see if there is any water in the washer. If there is water in the washer you most likely have leaky inlet valves. If there is no water in the washer, the diagnosis of this issue will require the use of a volt/ohm meter. If you have a meter and are confident in your technical abilities please reply below and I will be happy to assist you further.

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 .

Here is a link that you may use to view the parts list diagram or purchase any parts needed for your appliance; Sears Parts Direct .

Please perform the diagnostic tests detailed here and report back with your findings.

Thanks for your reply. Since the problem is intermittent, I am not 100% sure, but the siphon issue does not seem to be the problem. I have a lot of experience with a multimeter, can you assist me with that further? Is that required to troubleshoot the valves? Thanks, Joe

Joe,

Intermittent issues are the hardest to diagnose since you have to catch the problem while it is occurring. You can ohm the valves at the VCH7 connector (see image below). You will need to remove the top to gain access to the CCU (main control). Always unplug or de-energize electrical equipment before removing covers or attempting service. Be careful and wear appropriate hand protection when working around sharp metal parts.

The cold valve is VCH7 pins 1 and 3. The hot valve is VCH7 pins 5 and 7. The valves should ohm between 800 and 1000 ohms. If you can catch this washer filling while of you can check the voltage at the valves on the same connector. This of course should be 0 VAC when the washer is idle.

I hope this is helpful. Check the things I have covered here and if I may be of further assistance please reply to this post.
