Question and Answers

Q:

hello. my drywer is cutting off after 2-3 minutes. Its getting heat. just not staying on

A:

Hi Carl,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

From your description the most likely cause of this problem is the element. If the dryer is running the thermal fuse is not the problem and if the thermal cut-off opens it will not heat again. Sometimes an element will break but the coil still touches and it will heat until the coil separates and then stop heating till the coils cool down and touch again. You might want to visually check the heating element for this problem. 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.

You can run the dryer with the vent off and see if the element stays on any longer. A restricted vent might cause the hi-limit thermostat to short cycle the element.

If the element is losing voltage and short cycling then the problem can be with the control or hi-limit thermostat. The remaining checks will require the use of an ohm/volt meter and you will have to perform ohm checks and/or live voltage checks. If you have a meter and are confident in your ability to safely perform these checks, reply to this post 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 .

Q:

Belt size??

A:

Thank you for your question.

I can understand how not having your dryer working can be very inconvenient.

â��¢ The belt on your dryer is not a measured belt, but is listed as a part.

• The part number for the belt is: 8066065 and can be purchased from:Sears Parts Direct .

• To change the belt on the dryer, you will need to lift the top of the dryer and remove the front panel.

• First REMOVE POWER from the dryer.

• Lift the filter door and remove the two screws that secure the dryer vent tube to the top of the dryer.

• Next locate the groove in the cabinet front where the cabinet and the front panel meet.

• You will need to use a flat putty knife type tool to insert and push in on the spring catch, and lift up on the top at the same time. The spring catch is about 2 inches in on either side of the cabinet. It will lift up like the hood of a car.

• Hinge back the top and support against the wall behind the dryer.

• Remove the door switch connector.

• With the top up locate the 5/16 hex head screws that secures the side walls of the cabinet to the front panel.

• Once removed lift up on the front panel to disconnect from the bottom retainer clips and set aside.

• You will next need to gain access to the drive area in the back. Remove the access panel and disconnect the belt if it still is in place.

  • Note! The belt path around the drum and belt tension and motor pulleys for re-installation of the new belt.

• Lift the drum and slide old belt out and new belt in place over the drum and locate in the belt path worn into the drum.

• From behind the dryer through the access path install the new belt as illustrated in the picture below.

• Roll the drum by hand after installing the belt to make sure it is tracking on the drum correctly.

• At this point you can re-assemble the dryer.

• Refer to the pictures below for the belt replacement procedure.

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 .

I hope these instructions will help with this repair.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.
