Default Kenmore Dryer help needed
Model Number: 110.69912990   Brand: Kenmore   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I tried to start my dryer last week and it made a pulsing quiet buzzing noise. I have since torn the entire thing apart, searched extensively on the web and concluded that it was most likely that the motor had gone out. I ordered a new motor and blower which arrived today.

I have installed the new motor/blower, reconnected all wiring (except for the interior light) and just tried to start it. Hoping to hoot, holler, and celebrate, I was extremely frustrated when it only made the same exact sound as before. Is there something else I need to reassemble before it will work? Or did I just buy a new motor/blower for nothing? Any ideas on what else it could be?

Thank you!

There are two parts I would check: the broken belt switch (#5 on the diagram) and the thermal fuse (#59 on the diagram).

- The broken belt switch Part number: AP3094230

Part number: AP3094230



- The thermal fuse Part number: AP3133489

Part number: AP3133489



Here is the wiring sheet.

Thank you Gene.
How would I go about 'checking' these? Should I be checking continuity?

Default I have different Kenmore model - but maybe same solution

try to turn the end of cycle signal knob to silent
and/or try to make sure the timer is full off (make it click)
I had the same sound - thought it was bad wires arching in the outlet
then thought it was bad wires in the electric control panel
then tracked the sound (using a home made stethoscope)
to the little speaker that emits the end of cycle beep/buzzer
even that was the 'source' of the sound - still not sure what the cause was
I replaced the circuit board because I lost my heat -
fixed the sound - still trying to fix the no heat

thank you for the advice. I have been without a dryer for near three weeks now and finally broke down and took it to the repair shop. I ran out of clean socks a few days ago I asked them to call me and they said I could be present while they work on it. Hopefully I will get a lesson along with my bill.
Thanks!
