Need step-by-step directions for installing a new belt on my Lady kenmore dryer model #11086094600


Hello, Installing your own parts can be less expensive. If you go to the top of the page here on ManageMyLife and click on the "manuals" button and enter your model number you will be able to access your manual. I hope this helps!

This is an older unit and I have instructions to access and change the belt for a similar model.

Remember to unplug the dryer first.

The main difference is that the front panel is one piece in the instructions but you have a lower access panel.

Remove the lower access panel first. Use a putty knife to release the two top clips holding the panel.

With the top up there are still two screws holding the top of the front panel to the cabinet. With the two screws removed you can pull out and up to release the front panel. You'll have to remove the door springs also to remove the front panel.

The rest should be the same as shown in the images below.

What part beside the heating element can prevent my model 11086094600 Kenmore dryer from heating?


There are two parts to check for this problem and both are accessed by removing the rear panel. The next parts to check for a no heat problem are the control and hi-limit thermostats.

But first I'd recommend checking the circuit breaker and make sure one leg of the 240 volts isn't missing. The dryer has 240 volts supplied by two 120 volt "legs" and sometimes one leg will trip and the dryer will have 120 volts to run but not 240 volts to heat. Turn the circuit breaker for the dryer off then back on and see if it heats.

The control and hi-limit thermostat can be checked with or without a volt/ohm meter. If you have access to a volt/ohm meter and are comfortable and confident using it then check continuity across the two thermostats and see if either has an open circuit. Remember to unplug the dryer first.

If you don't have a meter the thermostats can be checked by "jumping" them. With the dryer unplugged you can remove the two wires on the control thermostat and join (jump) them together. Wrap a little electrical tape around the connection and try the dryer and see if it will heat. If it does then replace the control thermostat but if it doesn't heat then check the hi-limit thermostat the same way.

The control 344395 and hi-limit 279080 thermostats are both available from the following link: Sears PartsDirect .

If the element and thermostats are not the problem then the other possibilities are the relay or the control and both are no longer available.

If the thermostats and element don't fix this dryer then I think it might be time to replace the dryer.

I hope one of the thermostats is the problem but if not then you might consider replacing the dryer. The following link has some options to look at and consider if repairing your existing dryer is not possible: New Dryers to Consider .

I hope this information helps you resolve this problem but submit another question with any additional details for further assistance.
