Kenmore dryer cycling on & off
« on: May 07, 2014, 08:05:28 AM »
I have a Kenmore gas dryer that lights for 2 minutes & gas shuts off, Cleaned exhaust piping, motor impeller , Re lights after 2 minutes, drum temp is only around 116 degrees, I removed the lint screen & dryer runs for 4 or 5 minutes & drum temp goes to 145. Any ideas

dump some water onto the lint screen and see if it will pool up...If it does its a build up of fabric softener and you need to get all of the fabric softener off of the lint screen with some soap and hot water

I cleaned the lint screen with de-greaser, I'm just wondering if the motor is not getting the required RPM"S.  The model #11076832501
