Question and Answers

Q:

Kenmore dryer #11078932790: Need wire instructions/diagram to replace #6105049, the even heat control board. Thank you.

A:

Thank you for your question.

I should be able to help you with replacing the even heat board on your dryer. First, make sure to unplug or turn the power off to the dryer. Then remove the end caps on the console to access the screws securing the console. Remove the screws and flip the console up to the service position. Next, make note of the wire connections and remove the wires. Then use a pair of needle nose pliers to squeeze the mounts to remove the board. Once removed, position the new control and push the stand offs into the hole to secure it. Now connect the wires and close the console. Then restore power and check the operation.

I have added an image below showing the wire connection on the even heat board.

Please let me know if you need further assistance on the repair of the dryer.

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 .

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Q:

Kenmore 90 Plus Series gas dryer question. dryer drum spins when button pushed, heat does not start, when button released drum stops spinning.

A:

The motor relay and heater relay are not exactly the same part on this dryer. The motor relay has an AC (Alternating Current - 120 volts AC) coil. The heater relay has a DC (Direct Current - 48 volts DC) coil. I don't recommend that you try switching those relays on this model like you can on some dryers that do use the same exact relay.

I provided the wiring diagram for your dryer in the image below. I don't believe that you have a problem with that centrifugal switch on the motor. I traced the motor circuit in blue. When you press the PTS (Push To Start) switch, the circuit traced in blue is being completed. As soon as the motor gets is running, the motor centrifugal switch shift the contact from 3M - 5M to 6M - 5M and provides the neutral path for the heating circuit. That is probably happening. A problem with that centrifugal switch will not cause the motor to stop running as soon as you release the PTS switch. Since the motor stops as soon as that PTS switch is released, your failure is in the motor relay, the start sense wire or the Evenheat control board. Check the start sense wire that is highlighted in the hot pink on the wiring diagram. If that wire is not connected properly between the motor circuit and the control board, then the board will not energize the motor and heater relays properly. If that wire connection to the board is okay, then you would normally need to replace that motor relay. Since you switched those relays, you may have burned out that control board (if it was not already burned out). I recommend that you replace the control board. The new control board part number 279903. The replacement control board will be slightly different than your old one. It will have a DC relay for the motor instead of an AC relay. The board will come with a motor relay and the instructions shown in the images below. You may also need to replace that heater relay since it is likely burned out from being connected to AC power. Be sure that you unplug the dryer before accessing internal components.

You can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect website.
