Common failure of these dryers is the door switch. The switch is located at the top right where the door comes in contact with the tab,

A simple test is to verify that the light is on and goes out when the switch tab is depressed.

If not replace the switch.

Hope this helps?

SOURCE: G.E. electric dryer terminal block and wires are

you did not say how old? but I find that all it takes is one wire to get old, and starts to heat up because electric cant flow through it, then it gets worse and worse fast, then heats up the whole block, till the whole thing gets melted...bad thing is its happens slow enough that the standard 30 amp breaker won't trip during this slow melt down!

check the thermal fuse if it is blown also change the high limit thermal cut-off fuse www.repairclinic.com shows your parts. go there and enter model number. Also check the heat element. to get into it remove the lint filter and the two screws you'll see there then pry the top up at the front corners. And through the back you should find the heat element and blower housing and thermal fuse and high limit fuse and cycling thermostat.

SOURCE: Kenmore 80 series electric dryer will not start even though the door switch switch appears functional and power is getting to the timer.

Easy fix. I had the same problem on mine. You need access to the back. Remove back cover. Look at bottom left, you will see two blue wires going to a white plastic item next to one of the thermal sensors. This white plastic piece is a fuse, or fusible link if you like. I'm not sure what the rating is, but you can take the old one to a parts store. They can match it. Now, why did it blow? Well, if the dryer is old, it could be just worn out. But more than likely, one of your 230 volt lines has degraded due to a bad connection, thus drawing more amps, thus blowing the fuse. Look at where the power cord comes in at. Is there any discoloration or oxidation at the terminals? If so, replace the power cord at this time, and try to clean up the terminals as best you can. Also, at this time, you probably better take a look at the lint collector duct running along the left side down the back. It's probably so clogged with lint that your dryer does't dry as fast anymore, and air flow from the exhaust is restricted. Take the duct off and clean it out, or blow it out with compressed air. You should be up and running now. Have fun...

I have a kenmore elite quit pac 2 that wont stay running unless you hold the start button down. I dont have much money to fix it but cant afford to buy a new one. What can I do?


  • firstly dont hold your finger on the button
  • by doing this you are running the motor on the start winding
  • this winding is for momentary operation only, just to get things started.
  • You must have a fault in the run circuit of the motor.
  • To save your dryer. dont use it till you get someone who can fix the run circuit. It may only be contact failure, or jammed up with lint.
  • Good luck

if it is a direct drive system, it could be the coupler. Maybe a $15 dollar part at sears online parts shop. There is a good video on you tube showing the coupler fix.

Broken Kenmore 80 Series dryer


Sounds like you have a simple broken belt problem.  If you are sure the motor is working and the heating circuits are functioning, but the drum does not turn, the drum belt probably broke.  They are inexpensive to replace and are carried by almost any appliance repair store.

Broken Kenmore dryer 80 series


Hi Dave. The problem is the drive belt. They aren't that difficult to replace and can be done with just a few tools. I'll need the exact model number off of the dryer to explain how to gain access to it, though. The number can be found behind the door on the cabinet (it'll start with 3 digits then a decimal point then more digits, like this; xxx.xxxxxxx)

The part number for the repair is 4392065. This is a complete maintenance kit for your dryer. I recommend it because since your belt wore out, there are other parts that should be taken care of at the same time. Here's a picture and a place to order if you can't find it locally.
