Dryer does turn but on certain dyer times thing it heat up but not on other.
Answer Hello Lisa. The cycle would determine if the unit heats or not. That is normal.
1. Dryer takes very long to dry clothes...an extra 20 minutes or so; has some heat but less than it originally did. What part do I need?
2. Timer continues to run if shut off in mid cycle; timer does not work on left side settings. What part do I need?
Answer Hello Jim. It sounds like the venting system is clogged or kinked. You will need to check the vent and clean it out. Be sure and clean the vent pipe and the dryer air duct assembly. If the air flow is not good, the unit will retain moist air causing the clothes not to dry. Try running the unit with the vent unhooked from the back of the dryer and see if the dryer works properly.
The dryer seems to have heat every other time we start it. I can see the thermo coupler glow and the flames ignite, then I stop the dryer and restart it and it won't glow or ignite. If we leave it running with the heat on, it won't keep the heat on through the whole cycle. Would this most likely be a thermostat issue?
The cycling thermostat could cause this issue if the thermostat is not resetting. You will want to first check the vent to make sure that the dryer venting is clear and not obstructed. Also check the cycling thermostat to ensure that it has continuity on the outer terminals. If no continuity the part is bad and would need to be replaced.
Dryer runs but has no heat.
Answer Ron, you'll need to first make sure that you have 240v coming to the dryer and that the dryer venting and home venting are not clogged or kinked. Test for continuity on the thermostats and heating element, they should read closed. If open, it will need to be replaced. Hope this helps you. Thanks.
Dryer runs fine, shuts off after the cycle is complete, but then restarts on its own. Timer bad??
Answer Tom, check to see if there is voltage going to the timer motor after the cycle has ended. If it does you'll need to trace the timer motor wiring back into the unit to see if it is pinched or crossed over. Also you will want to check your neutral wire from the door switch to the motor and back to timer for short to ground. This would keep the timer motor operating. Also check for shorted centrifugal switch. Hope this helps you. Thanks.
I got one Kenmore electric dryer and the unit dont start! I checked the push switch and the door switch and are good. Where is the problem in this units?
Answer Hello Hector,
As with any appliance issue, the first thing to check is the power supply. If the door switch and push-to-start switches test good, you will next need to check the thermal fuse 3392519. If it turns out to be the issue and it is still in the installation location where it failed, the exhaust ducting needs to be checked for crimps or clogs. The thermal fuse is only opened by high temperatures caused by the dryer not being able to blow out the heat.
