Dryers - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

The F-22 error indicates that the thermistor that detects the exhaust temperature has failed. (Sometimes the wiring between the thermistor and the control board will be faulty.) Sometimes the issue can be triggered by cold if the dryer is in an unconditioned space.

Unplug the dryer and access the wiring and thermistor. Check the wiring harness connections. Use a voltmeter to check the resistance across the thermistor. At normal room temperature, the resistance should be about 10,000 Ohms.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the model number (including the Kenmore prefix) if you need the parts diagram or other information about the dryer.

The L2 error code indicates low voltage to the dryer. And this is most commonly caused by a poorly wired 240V wall outlet or loose connections to the dryer. Ideally, If you are inclined to test the voltage, you should do it at the dryer where the wires are attached in the back. BE CAREFUL; YOU ARE DEALING WITH 240VAC. YOU CAN BE KILLED IF YOU TOUCH THE LIVE WIRES! With the leads of the voltmeter across the outside wires, you should measure 220 - 240 VAC. If you do, then have someone press the start button. If the voltage drops significantly, (drops to less than 200VAC), you've found the problem! Turn off the circuit breaker to the dryer (and make sure you don't have any voltage at the outlet anymore.) Now check to make sure the screws that hold the wires at the back of the dryer are tight. If they are okay, then your problem is either at the 240V wall outlet or at the circuit breaker box. I'll let you take it from there; just make sure there is no power at the outlet before you remove the cover screws.

I'm having trouble finding the exact capacity of your dryer, but I believe it is around 7.0 cu ft, which is about as large as you can get in a standard-width home dryer.

SearsPartsDirect.com has the most parts. You can also try RepairClinic.com, AppliancePartsPros, EasyApplianceParts, and others. If you know the part number, you can try Amazon and eBay.

Taking a guess, there is computer control and electronic internal switching and barring anything drastic happening to the internal wiring, one or more of the switching semiconductor devices has probably failed...
