Customer Question
Kenmore 110 60902990 Dryer...

Kenmore 110 60902990 Dryer starts and produces heat then shuts down with in a minuet. I have disconnected the vent, same thing. Bad Motor?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Kenmore is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

It was given to me over ten years ago, it had a bad motor then and I replaced it.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes for about two years 12 years ago I worked for sears as a tech. Forgot a lot. :)

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Like said It starts then quits with in a minuet.

My name is Woody.
I`m sorry to hear that your having issues!
I will do my best to take the information that you provide to me and make a Diagnosis for you to be able to repair your own Appliance.
Please note it takes time to type and add links so please be patient. Also the site will send you a phone call offer, that is not me.

Are you saying that the heat shuts off or that the entire dryer shuts off?

The entire dryer shuts down, I will also note that we have never been able to get the dryer to run on low heat.
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 6 months ago

ok and when the entire dryer shuts off are you able to turn it right back on or doe you have to wait fro several minutes for it to be able to restart?

We have to wait.
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 6 months ago

ok then yes it is a drive motor issue.

The thermal overload is getting hot and opening ,that is why you have to wait for it to cool down for it to operate again .

Have you taken the dryer apart to verify the motor is not covered in lint ? that will make it over heat also .

Vent looks clean, pulled the front vent box and fairly clean also. I'm getting ready to pull the dryer down now. as a former Sears Tech I have cleaned it a couple of times so just what I can see so far it doesn't look to dirty. Ihaven't been in the industry for 12 years are so I appreciate the help. Any idea why I can't get the dryer to dry on low heat?
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 6 months ago

on low heat it will not heat at all or it just does not give you low temperature heat?

Always runs hot, like the thermostat isn't cycling or the four position switch isn't working.
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 6 months ago

this unit has an electronic dryness control board inside the console.

I suspect it is the issue.

I can give you links to the motor and to the dryness control if you would like.

We never use the Auto Moisture Sensing part of the timer just use the standard part of the timer. Does that make a difference?
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 6 months ago

no the dryness control works in both auto and times cycles.

Well I had better look at that also, I need to beable to set the fabric Temp also. The wife isn't happy about that part of the dryer. I need to be able to trouble shoot that also.
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 6 months ago

no trouble shooting on the electronic control board it either works or it does not .

If you get no low heat the control board needs to be replaced.

I`m showing the control board is $141.15 and then the price of the motor ,not sure if this older dryer is worth it or not .

But I can give you parts links if you would like.
