Question and Answers


Kenmore gas dryer 11097272100 not running.


Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

There is a door switch located directly behind the top center area of the drum opening. The top of the door must strike and push in the door switch actuator inwards to close the door switch or the dryer will not start.

The door switch actuator was likely broken off when the sweater caught on it. The door switch kit for Kenmore dryer model 110.97272100 is part #279347 which comes with the door switch and the actuator. If you just need the door switch actuator, the part number is 691581.

In order to access and replace the door switch, the dryer top must be hinged open and possibly the top of the front panel will need to be tilted out.

I added an image below showing how to hinge the top open and how to remove the front panel. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before servicing. 

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.
