Question about LG DLE2532W Electric Dryer
I have a kenmore 80 series dryer and it won't do anything. We have checked the breakers, the power cord, and the power source. We are getting electricity but nothing happens. I was told that maybe I just need to push a reset button??? I don't know where to find a reset button.
There might be a thermal cutout on the motor that drives the drum. You can check this by removing the back of the dryer. Most of them come off after removing a few small bolts. Look for a red button on one end of the motor. BTW, unplug the dryer before you take the back off. If you find the red button push it in and then plug the dryer in to the wall and see if it will run.
The thermal overload is a safety device that shuts things off if the motor gets too hot. So even if it does start and run, check it closely so see if it gets hot.
Hope this helps Good Luck Loringh

Kenmore 80 Series of dryers are consumer grade dryers for home use. As
with most home appliances, the Kenmore 80 series dryers will
occasionally not work as intended. If a problem occurs with your dryer,
however, you do not necessarily need it serviced by a technician. You
can attempt to troubleshoot and fix any problems with your dryer before
contacting a technician.
