Q:

Why does my dryer stop in the middle of a cycle but can be restarted by pushing the start button again?

A:

The wiring diagram for your dryer is shown in the first image below. Several components could be causing your dryer to stop in the middle of the cycle. If the motor stops but cannot be immediately restarted, it could be overheating. If you suspect that this is the case, you can unplug the dryer and remove the bottom front service panel as shown in the second image below. Blow and vacuum any lint build-up out of the bottom of the dryer cabinet (especially around the motor).

If the motor stops and will immediately restart, then you could have an intermittent problem with the door switch, the belt switch or a timer contact. You could also have a loose wire in the motor circuit.

Make sure that the door is closing properly and engaging the door switch. If the dryer door opens with little resistance, it could be popping open to stop the dryer in the middle of the cycle.

An intermittent problem can be hard to diagnose. These tips may help you determine the cause of your problem. If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details.

Q:

Kenmore Series 90 Dryer Model#11060922990 Electric

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

It's possible to have a burnt out heating element however it could have a faulty timer, operating thermostat, thermal cut off, high limit thermostat or you just have a tripped circuit breaker. First, I recommend locating the two (2) house circuit breakers dedicated for the dryer and reset both circuit breakers. Flip both circuit breakers off and on 2-3 times and then check the dryer for heat. If it continues to run and not heat, the voltage supply be measured and verified at the back of the dryer where the power cord attaches. The voltage is measure across the two outside terminals. NOTE: I do not recommend measuring voltage unless you have experience and feel safe and confident in doing so; otherwise I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your dryer.

I added an image below with the heating circuit traced in red. Each one of the components I have circled in red must have continuity between the two terminals or it will break the line one (L1) voltage supply to the heating element. The operating thermostat, thermal cut off, high limit and heater can be tested for continuity with an Ohm meter. Disconnect the power cord from the power source before servicing your dryer. Remove the lower access panel to access the operating thermostat, thermal cut off, high limit and heating element. The heating element is key#14. The thermal cut off is key#47. The high limit is key#48 and the operating thermostat is key#42 as shown in the image below. Disconnect the wires from the component before testing it for continuity with the Ohm meter. Whichever one tests open/no continuity, replace that component. I added a YouTube video showing how to check continuity and an image below showing how to access the heater.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.
