Question and Answers

Q:

re: kenmore elite gas dryer 11070092991 --

A:

The wiring diagram for your dryer is shown in the image below. Instead of checking that door switch using voltage, I recommend that you unplug the dryer and check the resistance through the contact D to D1. You should measure continuity (near zero ohms of resistance) through those contacts with the door closed. If you measure Ol (open load or infinite resistance) through those contacts then the door switch will need to be replaced. You can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect website. The part number for the door switch is 279347.

Check the belt in the dryer. If that drive belt is broken, the motor will not run.

If the belt is okay, you could have a bad drive motor, a failed control board or a wiring failure in the circuit that would prevent the dryer from running.

These tips should help you diagnose this dryer failure. If you need more help, reply with additional details.

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 .
