Question

Kenmore Dryer Keeps burning up the fuse


It burned up the Thermal Fuse and when I would turn the dryer on the coil would heat up but the motor would not turn the drum. I replaced the fuse along with the thermostat & cut off fuse and things worked fine for one load. Now it acts the same way. This whole time I have noticed that the dial does not stop at the end of the cycle it continues to turn, seems like until it gets back to straight up at the top. Could the timer be causing this?
Is the motor just worn out and pulling to much juice?
Bought the dryer new about 7 years ago.

Appreciate any advice

Kenmore Model #110-67522600

Kenmore Dryer Keeps burning up the fuse


How did you verify that the thermal fuse was blown? If the the thermal fuse was blown, then the coil would not be able to heat up.

Thermal fuse. If the dryer overheats, this device stops the flow of electricity to the heat source and/or the entire dryer. It is located on the blower housing and cannot be reset. The most common cause for overheating is a vent tube clogged with lint, a birds nest or other debris.



I assume you have checked that nothing is obstructing the blower's airflow? Blower is working properly?

When i said the thermal fuse I was talking about the fuse behind the motor. I replaced the motor and all is well for now.

Thanks for the reply

Spoke to Soon

I just thought i had it fixed. Spoke to soon. As I said in the original post "the dial does not stop at the end of the cycle it continues to turn, seems like until it gets back to straight up at the top."

We usually run it in the timed section. An example of the problem would be if you had started the dryer at 50 minutes and opened the door at 20 and removed the clothes then shut the door without restarting the dryer. The heater coil continues to stay hot while the door is open and closed until the timer reaches zero. Then the timer continues to click all the way back around to just before timed section starts.

Does the timer need to be replaced or is there something causing the timer to do this?

Again I appreciate any help
