Question and Answers

Q:

Replace push start switch part # 3977456 on an electric dryer model # 11064982300

A:

Thank you for your question.

I will be happy to assist you in replacing the push to start switch. First, turn the power off to the dryer. Then use a putty knife and the instructions below to access the console. Once the console is opened, pull the knob off the push to start switch. Next, tip the console up and locate the lock tab for the switch. Once the tab is lifted, rotate the switch to remove it. Before removing, the wires install the new switch. Then transfer the wires one at a time. After the new switch is installed, reassemble the dryer.

I am not sure if you have confirmed the push to start switch is needed but we usually do not see them fail. If the control does not send the voltage to the motor relay it will not stay running. If the switch dose not cure the problem and you have a meter to do some checks, please let me know. I will be happy to assist you in diagnosing the dryer.

Q:

Kenmore dryer, model 11064982300. Dryer operates fine but no heat. Vent is clear. Lint trap clean. Bad heating element?

A:

I can understand wanting to diagnose and repair your dryer, however this is not a typical electric dryer. The dryer has a control board, thermistor, heater relay, thermal cutoff, high limit thermostat and a heating element which can fail and cause no heat. It could also be a lack of proper voltage too. The dryer must have 220 volts supplied to it or it can run but not heat. Confirming the voltage supply is the first step to take. The voltage should be checked and verified at the terminal block where the power cord is attached. The voltage should measure 220-230 volts when measuring across the two outside terminals.

Note: I do not recommend checking 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.

You will need a volt/ohm meter in order to diagnose the failure. I added a couple of links below with additional information.

Q:

Why won't my Kenmore electric dryer stay running?

A:

This type of problem could be caused by a failed motor relay, a failed start sense wire or a failed control board. A bad thermistor (temperature sensor) will sometimes prevent the dryer from running. The wiring diagram for your dryer is shown in the first image below. The heater relay and the motor relay are the exact same part in this dryer. To see if a failed motor relay is causing your problem, you can unplug the dryer and switch these relays. To open the console, push a putty knife under the end cap (Key 8) on each side to release the clip (Key 18) on each side. Once these clips are released, you will be able to hinge the console up and back over the top of the back panel into the service position. Check the blue/black start sense wire that connects on the control board to make sure that it is properly connected. A break is this wire will prevent the dryer from continuing to run. If this wire is okay, then I recommend switching the heater relay and the motor relay. Reassemble the dryer and see if the motor will stay running. If it does, then the bad relay will need to be replaced. If not, then you likely have a failed electronic control board.

You can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect website. The part number for the motor relay is 3405281.
