Question about Dryers

Open Question

I have a kenmore dryer model #66902690, last night I went to start it and had to hold down the start button for several seconds. My husband said it smelled bad last night too. This morning I pressed the button, it started, then stopped and won't start now. Any ideas?

Rule number one NEVER EVER use the top of your dryer to stack piles of clothes while in use. That is the main reason why dryers over-heat. Also clean out the exhaust tube to the exterior.

SOURCE: dryer won't stay on unless I hold the start button down. When I let go of the start button, it stops.

most likely the evenheat board is bad, but it could be the motor relay, get under the console and check the trouble shooting wiring diagram. there are several checks you can do to narrow it down.

Dryer just sits and hums


if you push the start and it just humms it is a bad dryer motor to weak to kick on,to confirm this have sombody hold the dryer door button in and turn the drum when you push the start button,if it jump starts you know it's a bad motor-mike
