Question and Answers


Dryer smells like trying to burn clothing even on lowest heat setting. What would cause that? 11062882100 Kenmore Dryer


Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears
I am sorry and do understand your frustration when there is problems with the dryer heating.
Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Kenmore Dryer model number 11062882100.

First 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 and could be the main reason of your problem with the smell of burning  clothes.
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.

When it comes to Electric dryers here are all the options to check on when not heating or heating too much.
All can be checked with an Ohm meter for its continuity open or closed.  Make sure you know how to use an Ohm meter before you test these items.   Should be done by someone with great knowledge.
You can see all these on the link below when clicked on.

Thermal cut off switch which is both key 21 and key 15 together

Make sure you always keep  your lint screen and all the vent areas are clean.
