Q:

What would cause my dryer to shut off after about 5 seconds?

A:

I added an image so you can follow and understand the start and run circuit of your model dryer.

In order for your dryer to start and stay running timer contact BK and BU must close. The path of L1 current must pass through the thermal fuse to feed voltage to the motor at terminal 4M.

The neutral path to the motor must pass through the closed door switch and it then splits over to one side of the push to start switch and over to 6M at the motor.

At the moment you push the start switch you are completing the neutral path to terminal 5M on the motor and it starts and closes the motor centrifugal motor switch contact 5M to 6M and stays running. If the motor centrifugal switch is not closing 5M to 6M it will not continue to run once the start button is released. This would indicate that you would need to replace the motor with centrifugal switch.

Now with that said if the neutral wire is loose or off at 6M at the motor or at the door switch it can cause the motor to quit running when you release start or with just the current draw if it’s a loose connection.

If you continue to hold the start button in and it continues to stay running while you continue to hold the start button down it would have to be loosing the neutral at 6M. You would then need check the wire circuit on 6M for an open wire or connection.

I hope I this helps you diagnose your problem.

Q:

Why does my 5 year old Kenmore range come on by itself?

A:

It sounds like you either have a defective clock or a loose wiring connection. Since the clock does not affect the operation of the range, it may not be worth fixing. If you are able to unplug the range and check for a loose wiring connection, you may be able to fix the problem yourself. If you want the clock to work properly and you cannot find a loose wiring connection, you can try replacing it yourself or get a service technician to diagnose and repair the problem. The part number for the clock is WB27T10469. You can order it from the Sears PartsDirect website. It costs about $82 not including tax, shipping and handling.
