Kenmore 90 Series Electric Dryer will not run

Worked fine last use. Will not start now. Checked all of the obvious fuse/breaker, door shut, turned on, etc. I have Kenmore 90 series dryer. Was working fine yesterday. I did notice that the light inside the dry came on after about a year of it not working. when i put in the next load and hit start nothing? the switch clicked when i pushed it but nothing ells no humming or anything? could it be that the door switch has gone bad since the light just started working again? or is it the motor? I would think I would hear the motor try to work if it was going bad? Any help is welcome!!

    Is it more likely the thermal fuse or the belt switch?

Kenmore Series 80 Dryer won't start after Circuit breaker was tripped


A breaker thrown that many times indicates a serious electrical problem. You need to have the problem taken care of by an electrician. You should be worried about the safety of yourself and your family.
That being said, I would guess that breaker has gone bad and needs to be replaced.

Dryer will not come on at all. working fine on last load


check house fuse/circuit breaker
door switch
if an electric dryer the thermal fuse as they are often wired into the motor run circuit
check for power to the motor in start and run circuit, if present motors spent.
if not present trace back to timer and verify timer is sending power, if not timers spent.
more likely circuit breaker, door switch or thermal fuse if electric dryer..
hope this helps,
best of luck,
ttfn

Kenmore electric dryer series 90 model 66904691 will not start. Dryed a load of clothes went to start again will not do anything , checked fuse box, fuse not blown what could be the problem


Check the automatic door shut off switch and wiring. When the door closes it actuates a switch (completes and electrical circuit) which allows the dryer to operate.
