My Kenmore dryer large capacity white color. When click start dryer for 60 minutes, it run sometime until to 40' or 50' it off. Try to turn it back on, continue run for 20' and it off again. I did clean exhaust pipe, change thermal fuse, but it still the same. Now just only one suspect is the door switch may loose made it no contact when dryer working. If we replace door switch is it correct? (part #3392266). How do we remove door switch? Do we need to remove front panel. Any guide we appreciate. Of course we will buy part from yours.
ANSWER Hello Everdave,
Though it could be possible that a door switch would cause issue, since the unit runs for 40 to 50 minutes to start it would not be likely that this would be caused by the door switch. The chance is more likely that the motor is overheating and tripping the thermal on the motor. This would be a bad motor 279787.
