Question and Answers


Dryer is only blowing cold air. 11060942990


Thank you for choosing SearsPartsDirect. I will be more than happy to assist you with your Kenmore dryer.

From the information you have provided above, I would suggest replacing the thermal fuse. If this fuse has burnt out than the dyer will not blow hot air. This would be a common part to replace when the dryer doesn’t blow hot air. There’s also a thermostat and the actual element that might cause this issue as well .i would go with the fuse first and if that doesn’t fix it check the thermostat

I hope you found this information useful. Again thank you for choosing Sears, we appreciate your business, have a great day.

Thermal cutoff fuse keep failing 11060942990 Kenmore Dryer


A few things will cause the thermal cut off to blow. The first and most common is the lack of airflow. If air flow is restricted, the element will over heat. I recommend cleaning the lint filter, pull the dryer out form the wall, and disconnect the vent. Then start the dryer on high heat. The exhaust temperature should rise to about 160 or so and cool down to 120 then back on. If this is what the dryer does, we know the dryer is functioning properly and the problem is the vent. If the temperature goes way above 160 degrees, I suspect a shorted element or shorted heater relay in the control board. I have included a video that will assist with the testing and replacing. The heating element is shorted to ground would blow the thermal cut-off fuse. You didn't state what reading you got on the element? Pull at least one wire off of the element. Measure the resistance across the leads of the element, you should measure between 7 and 12 ohms. If not then the heater element is bad and will need to be replaced. I have included a link to our PartsDirect page where you can purchase the part you need to complete your repair. Just click the blue link above to be taken to the page. If you have further questions please resubmit your question for further information.

Dryer Won't start 11060942990 Kenmore Dryer


Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears
I am sorry and do understand your frustration when there is help needed with the dryer. 
Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Kenmore Dryer model number 110.60942990.

I am very sorry in that they are working on our programs and that at this time that I cannot send any pictures of the wiring diagrams.

First advice is to turn on and off the breakers and see if that will help.

Next thing for safety and concerns to keep dryer running well is to check the lint screen and vent of air flow going out of the house.   If clogged up it could cause heating problems on any dryer.
To prevent a Blocked Vent Hood, once a year: 
1.  Clean any lint blockage from the exhaust vent hood.
2.  Make sure the vent hood flappers move freely.
3.  Check for screen/grate openings that allow bird or rodent nests.
4.  Replace exhaust vent hood if damaged.
5.  Check for good air flow while running the dryer.
Note: Poor airflow or decreased airflow indicates further vent system cleaning is needed.

Your dryer not starting then the best place to check first is checking to make sure the power cord is good and plugged in. 

You say you have checked the lid switch and it is good so that leaves a few items to check.

There is a starting switch that can be checked out for its continuity behind the starting button.

On the back side of the blower is a Thermistor/thermostat and a thermal fuse.  Both should be checked out.

There is also a switch on the motor.

I hope this answers your questions but if you need further assistance please resubit another question with additional details.
