Kenmore Drver model 11063942100 Serial number mm0801748

 

Everything works as long I hold the start button and not release it, drum turns, heat moisture sensor ticks on etc but will not stay running. Hopefully this is an easy one for you folks to figure out. Nothing like finding out with a full load of wet clothes!

sounds like a bad Motor Relay..
you could test by swapping the Heater Relay and the Motor Relay ..

Likely suspects are the relay. The test Sensei Reg suggests is the easiest way to test..if it dryer stays on but will not heat then you need to replace the motor relay. If after the test you still have the problem,  check  voltage from the electronic even heat board and  if that tests fine, last likely suspect would be the motor or centrifugal switch if it can be replaced separately.

Might be a bad or stuck centrifugal switch in the motor.  Sometimes you can manually free it so it slides.  If not may have bad motor.

Thanks guys. I think this is the same issue I had with the dryer about 6-7 years ago. On my own now for a couple days. Had several The mouser route....WOW!

 

Will get back once we get the unfriendly console apart for the seccond time....beats a new dryer any day of the week!!!

 

Wish I could find the archives for the old site again.....was able to pull up 10 year old posts when I found it last year....like  to verify if this same thing is what was wrong then.......

Hi Folks:

 

Did not bother testing anything. After reading the archive (Thanks for the link) from 2007 and the samuri fix it page link, I was 98% certain on the motor relay being at fault again. Received shipment from Mouser today. Ordered three and there was no minimum. Ordered Friday, shipped on Monday, delivered today Priority Mail, and installed tonight. Thank you Santa on the Mouser link. Exact part number and original manufacturer both to the original part and the replacement part of six years ago, yet had three delivered for less than half the price of one delivered six years ago. Tommorrow I'll get the monster shop vac and suck out loose lint and blow the ductwork outdoors.

 

Yes, dryer is back in service and owe it to the great people on this forum who are willing to help others. All answers were greatly appreciated.

 

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you all!!!!
