Q:

Kenmore series 90 Dryer

A:

Replacing the timer assembly will not likely fix this dryer problem. Although you did not indicate the model number of your Kenmore 90 Series dryer, I cross referenced the part number (3976569) to a typical model that uses this type of timer. The wiring diagram below shows the circuit that is made when the start button is pushed (traced in red). When the motor starts, the motor centrifugal switch will normally shift to make the contacts 5M to 6M so that the circuit traced in green will be completed and the dryer will stay running. Your symptoms indicate that the motor centrifugal switch is not working. In this situation, the drive motor will need to be replaced instead of the timer.

The procedure for opening the cabinet on the type of dryer that uses this type of timer is shown in the second image below. If your dryer has a lint screen that inserts into a housing in the top panel of the dryer, then you should be able to use this procedure to access and replace the drive motor. Be sure that you unplug the dryer before accessing internal components.

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 .

NOTE: If the information presented above does not match your dryer, submit additional details and the full model number of your Kenmore 90 Series dryer.

Q:

kenmore 90 plus series washer

A:

Thank you for your question.

Water valves have a screen that catches sand before it enters the valve. The screens are probably plugged if the water is dripping in. To clean the screens start by turning off the water at the shut off valves. Now remove the hose from the valve on the back of the washer. You need to place the hose into a bucket and turn the supply valve on. This will flush the sand out of the hose. The water pressure should be what it is at all other faucets in the house. If you look inside of the valve, you will see the screen. Hold a bowl of water under the water valve and flush the sand out of the valve with a turkey baster. Now reconnect the hose and test the washer. If the water is still dripping in the valve has failed and needs to be replaced.

I hope this is helpful. Please reply below if you need further assistance. Here is a link to order any parts you need. Sears Parts Direct .
