Question about Dryers

Kenmore electric dryer model # 87670100

Wil not start - when you push the start button it buzzes but will not start. The last 2 days you would push the start button a few times (it would buzz) and then maybe the 3rd time you pushed the start button it would start.

The motor is weak and needs replaced, don't hold the start button too long or you may smoke the motor's thermal protection and it could get smokey and stinky. Make sure you can get the blower wheel off before you make a run for parts, sometimes you have to break them off the shaft. : (

Kenmore model 66812694 - quits running, buzzing noise at restart


bad motor,when you hear that noise open the door,hold in the door switch with one hand and with the other spin the drum and have someone else start it while you do this,all your doing is helping the motor start to spin but it sounds like a bad motor,this could be from not cleaning out the dryer,if it's gas it should be done once a year,electric can go another 6 months because there isn't an open flame in there,if you clean out the dryer and vent line the clothes will dry on time,the parts will last longer and you won't have a dryer fire.

Dryer won't start

Dryer drum will not turn.


Hello.

If the buzz continues to go for awhile(2-3 minutes before you stop it you will need to replace the belt on your dryer.

If the buzz quits pretty quickly after you let go of the start button and you smell something hot or electrical, you will need to replace the motor.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Kenmore 970 C81062 10 Electric Dyer WILL NOT


It sounds like the drum may be stuck. Turn the dryer on with the door open, just keep the button pushed. Then try to turn the drum by hand, and see if it will start to turn.

Knemore 80 series dryer won't start every time


Go to www.repairclinic.com and enter your model number and it will show you all your parts, but I suggest you change your thermostats and basically have the dryer cleaned out of possible lint build up on the interior
