Dryer

5 posts in this topic

Kenmore Elite model 110-63952102  - Placed dial on "Auto Moisture Sensing Plus" and the dryer starts gets hot and within 5 mins the dial moves to off with the cloths still wet.  After the shut off no other setting would make the dryer operational.

Left for the weekend with the dial on a timer setting of 90 mins or less. Came back to a running and hot dryer.  Sensi whats up?

You're lucky you didn't come back to a burnt heap of charred timbers. Dryers are the number one cause of appliance-related house fires.

The only appliance you should leave running unattended is the refrigerator.

As for your dryer, replace the timer:

One additional question. How hard is it to replace the timer?  Any special tools required?

Thanks

Very easy, this will show you how the console comes apart, just a phillips and 1/4 inch nut driver needed and some needle nose plyers perhaps to remove the wires...
