Dryer Start Button is not Working

When I press the Start button it won't start, sometimes if i keep the button depressed for an extended period it will start. No noise, humming, buzzing, etc...just nothing. It's a touchpad controls on the front of the dryer.

Sounds like you have a start relay going bad. I don't have a wiring diagram here to check if you have a relay or just a button.

Power button stays depressed and does not start power menu. power is on, drum light is lit.


You will need to replace the control panel. The button is pressed in the down position and won't allow you to do anything else till this part is replaced.

My start button on my gas dryer


That is VERY DANGEROUS.............I would NOT recommend doing that under any circumstances.........it could be a safety device that is keeping the start button from working in order to keep it from shorting out.............

also, it could be the start button itself but, it is not worth the chance that it could catch fire.

Kenmore 64112 dryer wont start when I hit the start button


Check house fuses or circuit breaker.
Pull 220V cord from wall outlet and inspect the gold prongs.
If you see any burnt areas on the prongs the outlet is bad.

If the unit makes no noise when you press the start button check the dryer door switch and make sure it clicks when depressed.
Sometimes the door switch arm can break off so when the door closes
the door switch cannot be activated.

If you hear a growl noise when you press the start button 2 things...
1. The motor is bad and needs replacing.
2. An object fell down the lint trap and is preventing the motor from turning.

Also if the dryer vent has been plugged causing the dryer to over heat a saftey fuse may have blown and needs replacement.
