KENMORE ELITE ELECT DRYER WEIRED PROBLEM
« on: October 29, 2019, 07:09:27 PM »

THIS ELECT DRYER MODEL 796-61512210 WILL START WHEN DOOR IS CLOSED, THERES NO LITES ON UI UNTIL U PUSH POWER BUTTON, BUT UNIT IS RUNNING ALL THIS TIME U PUSH POWER BUTTON TO STOP IT AND WILL NOT DO SO UNLESS DOOR IS OPENED, THERES NO HEAT EITHER. I HAVE CHECKED DOOR SWITCH THERMO CUT OFF ALL THERMOSTATS ELEMENT BELT SWITCH AND TO NO AVAIL. AM THINKING IT COULD BE THE CONTROL BOARD. TOOK IT APART FOR VISUAL INSPECTION BUT LOOKS GOOD? DOES ANYONE HAVE AN IDEA WHAT MY PROBLEM COULD BE? ANY HELP IS APPRECIATED THANBKS

I cannot find a wiring diagram/tech sheet for this unit but it does sound like the motor relay contacts are welded together.
