Question and Answers

Q:

Where is the manual for Kenmore dryer 11096284800?

A:

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem finding the manual. I have searched for the manual but due to the age of the dryer, it is no longer available. I also searched online for a copy of the manual but did not find one. I am sorry, all that is available is the feature sheet.

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Q:

My Kenmore dryer will not regulate heat properly. 11096284800

A:

I posted a wiring diagram for that dryer in the first image below. Note: Since you are on the Sears PartsDirect website, you will probably not be able to view the images through that format. You can copy and paste this URL into your browser to visit the Manage My Life website and view the images: http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/questions/337370-kenmore-dryer-regulate-heat-properly-11096284800 

 

The heating circuit is traced in red and green on that wiring diagram. You indicated that you replaced the bio thermal cut and the dryer still overheats. I am not sure which component you are describing. The second image below shows the operating thermostat, the thermal cut-off fuse and the high limit thermostat in the dryer. These are the components that regulate the heat in the dryer. If that thermal cut-off fuse was blown, then the dryer will not heat at all. If you did not replace the operating thermostat, then that is your most likely failure in this situation. There is a chance that you have a heating element that is shorted out to the metal cabinet. This would cause the element to heat constantly. You can unplug the dryer and visibly check the heating element. The third image shows how to remove the bottom front service panel to access the heating element and other components. If that element is okay, then you can probably fix this problem by replacing the operating thermostat (assuming that you have not already replaced that component).

 

The electronic control component governs the advancement of the timer and does not affect the drying circuit.
