t110

Kenmore 70 series dryer

11 posts in this topic

Model # 66712690

Dryer continues to cycle through stop position.

I have replaced: Timer

                              Start switch

                              Resister # 279872

None of this has helped.

This has 3 timed cycles and 3 stop positions.

When turned on to the 1st position to the right and press start button, if left alone the dryer would go

through all 3 dry cycles with out stopping.

It will stop spinning after 1st cycle, but will continue past stop then call for heat on next cycle,

and  since I havn't pressed the starter, the drum does not turn. Can we say fire hazard?

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thank you

Pete

We can say "fire truck" for sure...assuming there is a 110. before the 66712690, this is a Whirlpool dryer like millions of others. Start checking for a ground, like the heating element or some wires shorted together or to the case, something if feeding voltage when it should not if the timer is new and something has not welded the contacts together inside of the timer.

I'll check for a ground. We turn the breaker off after every use. But getting ready to move it to a new

laundry room, and  wanted to get fixed before the move.

If it isn't a bad ground , are there any other possibilities?

Thanks

Pete

Need to get a volt stick and see what is feeding voltage from where when it should not, sounds like in the heat circuit, check the elememt and go from there tracing with the wiring diagram on the dryer

Like pegi said     it really sounds like that element broke and went to ground....  check that element or get a good policy on Fire Insurance...
