Question about Kenmore 63932 Electric Dryer
Dryer will start and then quit after about 5-10 seconds. Motor starts to hum and there will be several clicks and then it will stop. The drum does turn. The dryer is a Kenmore Elite 63932.
You have a faulty heat safety switch. This switch prevents the dryer from overheating and causing fire. Some dryers have as many of 4 of these switches (seems redundant but it prevents fire) Depending on how confident you are with repairs the back of the dryer can be removed and the switches can be replaced. Most of them are circular and are found along the dryer exhaust area. I do recommend that this repair be done by a professional if you do not have allot of experience yourself because of the safety factors involved. Good Luck!!!

If you hear the motor humming and not starting at all it most likely has a severe friction problem with the drum or motor. It could possibly have some type of garment jamming the blower wheel preventing the motor from starting too.
Open the dryer door and manually rotate the dryer drum counter clockwise (CCW). It should take very little effort to rotate the drum. If it's hard to rotate that could explain why the motor hums instead of starting up. If it turns freely, shut the door and see if will start. If it still hums and not start it may have bad motor or a low voltage supply to the motor.
