Hi..have a Kenmore elite electric dryer 11060982990 with the even heat assembly....it was running fine then stopped and would only run if the push to start switch was held it...then today it is running fine without holding the switch in....it had the even heat assembly replaced 8 years ago and I have had no problems since..I have checked with a multimeter the start switch, door switch, heat and motor relays, thermister, and thermal and they are within specs.....with the machine on I tested the motor and heater relays and they were receiving just under 47 vdc from the even heat unit......I think it is the even heat unit again but I want to be sure before I buy it and have the same problem in a few weeks....and other tests that I can do..any info will gladly be appreciated......I don't want to pay Sears anymore money

you need to wait until it fails again to test. problem could also be motor relay.

Probably got a flakey relay on the even heat board. Is it currently malfunctioning? Can't do any tests until it is. For more info, see this page:

Hi..had a problem with the dryer a few months back and after testing everything ended up replacing the Even Heat control board...it would run only if the start button was pushed in....the dryer worked for a while and recently it stops after a few minutes in the timed setting...sometimes I can get it to run again by just pressing the start button again...today it stopped and would not start by pressing the button...I switched to the even heat setting on the timer  and it started and finished the entire cycle.....later I tried the timed setting and it worked... ......is this a timer issue..is it cutting off the power to the motor.....or????? any input would be appreciated............like I said earlier I replaced the circuit board about two months ago...I checked everything else and also replaced both switch relays in the console just to be safe...thanks and help.....

Timer Test

Perform the Factory Test to determine that the
timer motor advances (should run continuously).
To determine if the Even Heat Control is sending
the required pulse sequences to the timer
motor:

1. Set the Volt/Ohmmeter to read up to
120VAC.

2. Place the probes at PT01 and P1-1 on the
Even Heat Control.

3. Operate the dryer in the TIMED DRY cycle.
Meter should read ON 7 sec., OFF 113 seconds

Also if you disconnect the Blue and Black wires from the timer you should read continuity between those 2 terminals in any setting.

no need to start a New Topic for the same problem.

Your 110.60982990 model doesn't use any Relays,
and therefore, the EvenHeat Board doesn't control them nor the Motor.

It sounds like your Motor may be bad.

Next time it stops, feel the Motor to see if it's hot.

thanks for the reply..the model number is correct...the dryer has two relay switches...one for the motor power -large blue wires and small pink and black wires..and one for the heater-large red wires and small red and wire wires.

It's the "blue wire" that's in the 4 wire harness.

thanks for looking.....while surfing online I found this post....and it fits my problem......the person states that the dryer will stop but the timer will quickly advance its self off......this is what my dryer was doing...it would advance off......the response was...if the motor loses dc voltage ...the dryer will stop running and the timer will rapidly advance....dc voltage from even heat control board........so is it the board again...might be ..since it was 2 months old I figured it would be ok..maybe not.....anything on the motor that could reduce the voltage....but remember the motor starts sometimes if I reset timer or change to moisture control ......any ideas....thanks again for you help
