Answer . Most Likely Burned Out Heating Element. It`s Not Hard Of A Job To Replace If You Are Mechanically Inclined. If Not Have A Friend Or Appliance Shop Do This. GOOD L…UCK
Answer . Usually if you take the model number and serial number (just in case) to the certified kenmore repair shop in your area you can usually order one. I have been abl…e to that in the past anyway. Good luck.
Answer . Make sure you're getting enough air through it. Check for blockage in the from lint and make sure the fan blades are clean.. Answer . Have you cleaned the ve…nt hose including inside the dryer? Sometimes they get clogged with lint and that can cause overheating?
Go to home depot, purchase the 4 wire power cord. The directions aren't very clear. But most of the colors are pretty self explanatory. White in the middle, red to red, etc. T…he green one is the confusing part. There is a green wire coming out of the back of the unit. It needs to be grounded on something metal, like the body of the dryer. AND the green wire on the new 4 wire power cord you are attaching needs to be grounded too, also to the body of the dryer unit. There is usually an extra screw/bolt on the body of the dryer to attach it to so it continues to ground out. You can google around, but doing it yourself will save you from hiring an electrician. The new 4 wire power cord was 14.99 for a 4ft one and 17.99 for a 6ft one. Just remember to attach the cord to the dryer before plugging in!!! Also, some how we flooded our outlet so we had to trip the fuse switch in the garage. So if at first it doesn't work, start over at the beginning and make sure the fuse is on in the fuse box. Also, we thought there was something wrong b/c the fuse looked like it was on, but it was kind of in the middle, so make sure you switch all the way off to all the way on so you can be sure it's on. Good luck, remember safety first!!. ~rach
This model # is Gas (I own one)
5.7 Cubic Feet
The answer is actually in your dryer's model number prefix and has nothing to do with the series name given to the product by Sears. On the inside of the door, generally, ther…e will be a tag. Somewhere on the tag it will say "Model Number." There is a pre-printed part on the sticker and then the part that's been added by a printing machine. If the pre-printed part says 110, you have a Whirlpool. For any other numbers, check out this website: http://www.appliance411.com/parts/sears.shtml
I would like to convert my top of the line Kenmore dryer from gas to electric Anyone have prints instructions or ideas?
While anything is possible, this just isn't feasible.
You probably mean WHAT is my Kenmore dryer model. If so, you Kenmore Dryer model number can be found behind the dryer door. Open it and look around for a label containing the …model number and serial number around the opening. If you decide to service you Kenmore dryer make sure to have this model number handy when you try to search for the service manual. You can check the manufacturer's web site, Kenmore.com or a third party resource, such as http://www.allrepairmanuals.com/Kenmore-dryer.htm the service manuals are published by the manufacturer and come in PDF format.
Make sure the washer spin is working properly and that the clothes are not excessively wet when you put them in. If they are normal wetness then check to see if your dryer shu…ts off before the cycle is through. It it shuts off after a few minutes then you have an electrical problem to diagnose.
[also answering 1st tier redirect of: "Kenmore electric dryer model 67732794 shutting off before cycle over?"] Two potential causes come to mind (both equally likely, on an o…lder machine): 1) There is a "bad spot" (poor electrical contact) on the rotary timer/cycle-select switch. (The wiper arm moves across each "click-stop" and comes to a bad/corroded section, and stops -- acting as if the cycle is over.) 2) The lint trap or exhaust outlet is clogged, causing an over-temperature situation, triggering a temp sensor, thus stopping the cycle. If I find the Model 67732794 manual on the Sears website (feel free to look yourself!), I'll see what type of over-temp safeties are in place. Quick fixes are: FIRST, clean the lint trap filter (surprised how many folks don't), and then try a DIFFERENT cycle on the rotary knob selector, and see if the cycle completes. If your selector knob has a "bad spot", it won't be on a different cycle.
