Question and Answers

Q:

How do I change the belt on my Kenmore electric dryer 11066912692?

A:

The procedures in the first image below describe the process for accessing and changing the belt in this type of Kenmore dryer. Your dryer console will be slightly different than the one shown below. You will need to remove the plastic end cap from each side of the dryer to access the screws that secure it to the top dryer panel. The rest of the procedure should be the same. NOTE: Be sure to unplug the dryer to disconnect electrical power before accessing internal components. Internal metal edges can be sharp. Protective gloves are recommended.

If your dryer belt was smoking an burning, you could have a friction problem that was causing the belt to slip. Check the drum to make sure that it is turning properly.

Q:

How do I change the heating element or fuses on Kenmore dryer model 11066912692?

A:

According to the nature of your question, I take it that the dryer is not heating. Before opening the cabinet, I recommend checking the house breakers or fuses for the dryer outlet. The dryer motor will run if only one of the 120 volt legs of 240 volt power is supplied to the dryer. If the second leg of 120 volt power is missing, the dryer will not heat.

If the house breakers or fuses are okay, I recommend checking the voltage at the outlet using the diagram in the first image below. NOTE: You should only check this live voltage if you are completely confident in your technical ability to safely measure it using a volt/ohm meter.

If outlet voltage is okay, then I recommend unplugging the dryer and removing the bottom front service panel as shown in the second image below. With the panel removed, you can access the heating element, thermostats and fuse for the element. The third image below shows the parts diagram of these components and the wiring diagram. You can test the heating element by removing one wire (with the dryer still unplugged) and measuring the resistance across the leads of the element (Key 14). You should measure between 7.8 and 11.8 ohms of resistance. If you measure infinite resistance (open), then the element is bad and will need to be replaced. You can check the high limit thermostat (Key 48), the thermal cut-off fuse (Key 47) and the operating thermostat (Key 42) in the same manner. All of these components should measure near zero ohms of resistance (closed). If any of these components are open (measure infinite resistance) they will need to be replaced.

These tips should help you diagnose and repair the dryer. If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details.
