Q:

Still the 27 inch kenmore dryer

A:

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

I am including the tech sheet for this model. The DIAGNOSTIC TEST is on the first page and the Timer Test is on page 5. You will need to verify the inputs to the electronic control. The diagnosis of this issue will require the use of an ohm/volt meter and you will have to perform ohm checks and/or live voltage checks. If you have an ohm/volt meter and are confident in your technical abilities, please utilize the checks below.

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 .

Here is a link that you may use to view the parts list diagram and for parts purchases; Sears Parts Direct .

Please perform the diagnostic tests detailed here and report back with your findings. I am looking forward to assisting you again in the near future.

Patrick, I am a little confused, when you say the timer checks OK, I assume it is running. If the timer is running then we will need to check elsewhere. Unplug the dryer and disconnect the blue wires at the motor relay. Tape the blue wires together with electrical tape ensuring that they will not touch anything else. Plug the dryer back in and turn the timer to the start of a normal cycle. If the dryer runs, a meter will be required for the remaining checks. Do not leave the motor relay bypassed this is for testing only. I hope this is helpful. Check the things I have covered here, and if I may be of further assistance, include more details in a reply to this post. Landell

Patrick, By taping the blue wires together you bypassed the motor relay, thermistor, control board, and the push to start switch. The motor should have run. With the blue wires taped together, timer set to run; you will need to check voltage at the motor blue to white. If you do not have voltage blue to white you need to check the belt switch, thermal fuse and wiring. Working with live electrical current can be very hazardous and possibly deadly. Do not attempt these measurements without the proper tools and safeguards. If you are not already sure you can perform these checks safely and competently, refer this work to a qualified professional. Check the things I have covered here, and if I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post. Landell

Q:

fuse 32mf/337b/27

A:

Thank your for your question and I understand your concern.

 The fuse will usually have the amperage and voltage rating stamped on one of the two ends of the fuse. Take the fuse to any electronic parts house or a TV repair shop and they should be able to provide the proper fuse. The only fuse I could locate in the parts list is F901 FUSE 250V 4A by Littelfuse 084T414 but I can't be certain this is the one you need.

Here is the link to the service manual which has a large parts list. I hope this helpful. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before servicing.

Q:

What are my choices for a front load stackable washer that is no more than 27 inches deep (and 27" wide)?

A:

With that kind of depth restriction, you will likely be limited to the Kenmore 24" Laundry Center model 88732. Here is a Sears.com link for that item: Kenmore White 24 in. Space Saver Laundry Center with Electric Dryer . This is the only current model that I found that will match your depth specification.

Any other laundry center that I looked at had a depth of 31" or more.
