Q:

Breaker blows after 60 seconds.

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Based on your symptom and details it sounds like you may have a weak circuit breaker since it trips on heated dry and air dry.

In order to diagnose if the circuit breaker is weak and is in need of replacement the current/amperage will need be checked and monitored while the dryer is operating in the heat and air cycle.

You will need a clamp on amperage meter and check both legs (L1 and L2) of voltage. If you do not have experience in checking current/amperage and you do not feel confident and safe in doing so, I highly recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your dryer.

You will need to clamp the amp meter around L1 (line one) and then L2 (line two) where the L1 and L2 is connected to the terminal block at the back of the dryer. If the amperage draw is below the breaker rating of the circuit breaker and the breaker trips, replace that specific circuit breaker. You may want to call an electrician to replace the breaker if you do not feel confident and safe in doing so.

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 .

A:

Thank you for your question on installing the timer knob onto the timer.

Please pull out on the bare shaft on the timer as far as it will go, and then unlock the black clip on the backside of the timer and with a small flat pocket screwdriver pull out on the clip and then slide the timer onto the shaft and push the clip back in to lock the knob on the timer shaft.

I will give you a set of instructions below in the image.

I hope this will help you.

Q:

Why my Kenmore 60 Series washer does not drain?

A:

Thank you for your question.

By what you have stated, it sounds like a lid switch failure. The lid switch has to be closed for the drain and spin cycle on most washers. If the lid switch is faulty, it will act as if the lid is not closed. On most models, make sure the lid hinge screws are tight. If the screws are loose, the hinge might not activate the lid switch. A quick check you can do is to jump the lid switch and see if it will drain. If the washer operates, the lid switch needs to be replaced.

To jump the lid switch you need to unplug the washer and open the console. I have provided you with the instructions for opening the console on most models below. Once you have the console open, locate the connector for the lid switch. Place an insulated jumper between the two colored wires. Not the green it is a ground and will cause a short. After inserting the jumper make sure it will not touch anything metal, plug the washer in. Start the washer in a drain cycle. If the washer drains and spins, you need to replace the lid switch. Do not leave the jumper in while you are waiting for the part. The jumper is only of the test.

To you replace the lid switch you have to remove the cabinet of the washer. The instructions for most models are also in the image below. Once the cabinet is removed you can take the screws out securing the lid switch and remove the harness from the clips along the underside of the cabinet. Then reinstall the lid switch in the reverse order. Before you reassemble the cabinet, please read the instructions for installing the cabinet provided in the image.

I hope this is helpful. Please reply below with a model number if you need further assistance.

Thank you for your reply. The lid switch is attached to the underside of the washer's top. The connector you have to disconnect is the plug for the lid switch. Follow the wires from the connector under the top to locate the lid switch. To jump the lid switch you will need an insulated piece of wire about 3 inches long. Then strip about 1/2 inch of insulation off each end. Bend the wire unto a U shape and inset one end of the jumper wire into the each wire for the lid switch connector. This would be the connector that is attached to the washer not the cabinet. The switch closes the contacts between the two wires. When you install the jumper wire in you are doing the same thing the switch would do if it was working. I hope this is helpful.
