Question about Kenmore 62602 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Electric Kenmore Dryer


Worked and then pushed the start button for the next load and nothing. Unscrewed control panel, took out start switch and it was obvious that it had blown. It was clear plastic and could see the works.

Bought replacement switch, installed it and machine does not start. Drum light on, buzzer works when I push start button...this tells me the switch is good but maybe something else is bad.

I am just heading back to work from a workig vacation and need my dryer. I am $40+ dollars in the hole and still not fixed.

Please suggest something I haven't tried...oh, did check the door safety, works.
Thanks

Bad control panel. Replace the control panel at repairclinic.com. When your control panel clicks like that it means that a resistor or solder joint has gone bad and it is cheaper and easier to just replace the board

This may be a thermal overload switch which is probably located underneath the top of the dryer. When you find it, bypass it to see if that is the problem. If so, replace it for about 10-12 dollars. Check the breakers first, then the connections in the back to see if they are secure.

Dryer won't Start


the problem might be the start switch itself. if the switch is going bad it could have either a carbon buildup on the contacs preventing it from starting (unlikely) or the contacs are wearing out and it is more hit or miss if it will start. as time goes on the problem will get wose

My Push Start Relay or Control Knob is not starting the Dryer


is this the even heat model? if it is you need a new control board on the back of the timer area and might as well buy a couple relays the black ones with 4 wires in them. one is for the pts and the other is a heater relay both are the same part
