Question and Answers

Q:

Kenmore dryer won't turn off.

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

I'm not sure that I have a complete and full understanding of the symptom. Based on your details, I assume the timer will advance through the cycles and it advances past the OFF positions and continues running.

In order for this to happen, the contacts (BK and BU) could be stuck/welded shut or the Blue wire connected to terminal BU is shorted to a hot wire. I assume the dryer will quit running when the door is opened.

If the timer is not advancing at all in "Time" dry or "Automatic" dry, the timer is also likely faulty or one the wire leads of the timer motor is disconnected or loose.

I added 3 images below of the wiring diagram to reference in order to see the timer motor circuit in the Automatic and Timed dry cycles as well the motor circuit.

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

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 .
