This Dryer Rollers is how to replace the roller supporters but more importantly it shows how to disassemble your dryer.

We have a Kenmore 70 series dryer #11060712990. Dryer will not start.



Thanks for contacting ManageMyLife.  I understand how frustrating it is having trouble with your appliance.

On the model dryer you own the timer could run and the motor not run.  There is a thermal fuse that if it has popped the motor is shut off.  This is for safety.  You would need to check the lint screen by running water through it at the sink, if it hold water it would need to be cleaned using a mild detergent and hot water.  If the lint screen is Ok check the exhaust vent and make sure it is not clogged up or squeezed off.  Check the outside vent making sure the outlet is clear.  One other thin, since the lint screen is top mounted check the bottom of the chute and make sure an article of clothes has not fallen into the chute.

To replace the thermal fuse disconnect the dryer from the wall and remove the complete rear panel.  This will expose the control devices and the thermal fuse which has the two blue wires to it need to be checked.  You can pull the blue wires off and push them together, make sure the bare connector are not touching metal.  Reconnect the power and start the dryer up if it run shut it off and order you a thermal fuse.  DO NOT leave the two blue wires shorted together as this could start a fire if air flow is restricted.  This was for a test only.   

If you decide to have a Technician check your appliance, call this number to get the service call arranged 1-888-266-6317.
