I have a code F-90 which is the door lock mechanism. I looked at the motor and saw three electrical connection blue, gray, and black. The blue is wired the black is wired but the wires to the black connection are cut. Is it correct that they are not needed?
Answer Hello Michael,
I'm sorry but we do not have access to the wiring diagram on this Kenmore product. If you cannot locate the wiring diagram on the unit you will need to contact Sears to inquire about Service data sheet 316905092. I am sure all the wires should be connected but cannot tell you where they should be connected without the wiring diagram.
Door open, dryer still running.
Answer Norm, based on the issue described you'll need to replace the door switch part number 3406105. Thanks!
hi is this door latch compatible with WED5830SWD Whirpool ?
Yes the door latch kit [AP3094183 will work for your unit.
Whirlpool dryer Model #LEQ9508PWO. When the dryer is on and I open the door, the drum doesn't stop turning. I have to turn the dryer off.
Answer Joe, Unless the dryer door will not remain closed, or "pops" open when there is a load in the tumbler, the door catch 279570 . When you open the door, the dryer should stop running, if it doesn't stop it is usually due to a faulty door switch 3406107 or possibly a shorted wire to the switch. You will need to remove power to the dryer, remove the lint filter and the two screws located under the door. Tghen you'll need a flat blade tool (putty knife) to release the spring clips and raise the top panel to access the door switch assembly.
