Unplug the unit.
reset all the settings.
check also the unit drum by moving op & down. this could be broken bearing on the motor area.

HI,

It doesn't work at all If your dryer doesn't work at all, it could be because of problems with:

Power from the house Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? If you plug something else into the outlet, does it work? If not, check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.

Door switch If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch.

Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing.

If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the dryer back into operation. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.)

Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. In this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the wire is attached.

Power button is pushed in and appears broken. drum light is on, but cannot operate power button.


Giving Brand and Model Number of this unit will get you better results. The Start Button seldom fails. The problem is generally elsewhere preventing the Start Switch from getting power. Dryer Model Number are generally inside the door.

Wont start are do nothing wont come on but light inside stay on all the time even when door close


Sounds like your door switch needs to be replaced. When the door is closed it is supposed to shut off power to your light, and send a signal to the timer that the dryer is ready to start. If your light is on with the door shut, then it won't start. Pretty simple replacement that you should be able to do yourself. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

I have electric series 80 kenmore, all of a sudden it wont turn on, still getting power because light is on when door is closed. turns off when door opened. hit button and nothing happens at all.


If a dryer is not working at all that's not good! But it doesn't mean you need to go appliance shopping just yet. It may be something very simple like a broken door latch, a bad door switch or even a broken door switch actuator, in a kenmore dryer there is a tab thats sticks out of a hole in the wall that allows the dryer to run only if the door is shut, other models may have button that protrudes out of the dryer and when the door is shut, this allows the dryer to run. These switches go out from time to time, also if a dryer is full of lint build-up over time this will cause the dryer high limit or fuse to blow. The fuse is located near where the blower is in most cases. When the air in the dryer gets way too hot the fuse/hi-limit will blow and the house wont burn down.

Dryer wont start - no lights


Dryer door does not think it is closed. There is a sensor on the top of the door that is probably not making contact with the door. Trying pushing the top part of the door and holding it then press the start button.. if the unit starts running then you know what it is. I just had one of these dryers delivered today and had to find out about this by myself tonight!!
