Solutions for Kenmore Elite dryer repair issues

Whether you have a gas dryer or an electric model, the experts at Sears Home Services can perform Kenmore Elite dryer repairs whether the issue is big or small. A service call involves troubleshooting the appliance's problem and making repairs fast. A repair technician can also recommend routine maintenance to extend your dryer's life.

Dryer fails to heat up

When your Kenmore Elite dryer drum turns, but doesn't heat properly to effectively dry clothes, it could be time to replace the thermal fuse, thermostat, or heating element. Any of these problems can be caused by blocked ventilation, a clogged lint screen, or consistently overloading the dryer. In natural gas models, it could also be a sign that gas is not flowing to the dryer.

Dryer vibration issues

If your clothes dryer makes strange noises or vibrates, the dryer drum seal could have failed and needs replacement. This is caused by frequent overloading or contact with foreign objects. A thumping or squeaking sound could also be a sign of failed or worn glides, rollers, or bearings, all parts that can wear out over time.

Dryer runs, but shuts off quickly

When a Kenmore Elite dryer drum spins, but then shuts off quickly, it could be a sign of a broken thermostat caused by blocked ventilation, a clogged lint screen, or consistently overloading the dryer. A malfunctioning thermostat could also overheat the dryer to the point of becoming a fire hazard. Replacing the thermostat is often required.

Preventive maintenance by dryer repair experts

Scheduling regular appliance service ensures your Kenmore Elite dryer will work efficiently and effectively. It can also prevent costly, unexpected repairs over time and extend the life of your appliance.

When you request the Washer and Dryer Clean & Maintain package, your Sears Home Services technician will inspect both appliances for proper functioning, wear and tear, excess noise, and water and gas leaks, while also cleaning some internal components.
