Need to remove lower panel

Some lower panels are a friction fit and may have to be carefully pried off to gain access inside.

My kenmore 500 series dryer will not turn on! it has power to the unit

The dryer could think the door is open so it will not start the cycle when the start switch is pressed. You will need to remove the door switch to gain access to the wires on the switch. Remove one wire and tape it to the other wire. Try the dryer to see if it starts the unit. If it does turn the timer to off and order a replacement switch. If drum did not start to turn then you want to lift the top of the dryer to gain access to the start switch. Again remove one wire and touch it to the other wire to see if the drum starts to turn. If it did order a new start switch and replace it. The next item to check is the belt around the drum making sure it has tension on it. If not you will have to remove the front lower panel making sure the belt is around the motor pulley and tension rollers. Make sure the motor has voltage by using a volt meter. I do not have the schematics for this unit, and the last Item would be to check the thermal cut off and to trouble shoot the timer circuit.

The off/on pull switch appears to be broken. I suppose we need a new part and someone to help me. Will you please advise? Thank you. Bill Anderson

If your handy enough to attempt to replace the control timer yourself..You can start by unplugging the dryer first and removing the screws on the rear of the control panel...You'll then need to slide a flat screw driver under the clips located on the left and the right sides of the panel that attach to the top lid of the dryer... its a little tricky but you'll figure it out... once inside the control panel remove the nob from the timer and remove the wiring clip attached to the timer...remove all the screws holding the timer in place on the panel...A new timer could cost up to $85.00 it depend on the model...Good luck

Kenmore 70 Series Dryer not heating and not cutting off

I had an identical problem to yours this weekend with my Kenmore dryer. There were 2 problems.

1. Timer was broken. Does not advance to "OFF" position on timed dry, however it still works for auto-dry.

2. Thermal fuse was blown. Upon replacing, dryer heated up normally.

I believe when the timer broke, the dryer had kept running and blew the thermal fuse. On Sears' website, thermal fuse is $5.30, timer is roughly $80.

My Kenmore Series 90 dryer won't run as it appears the door does not hit the actuator. It would appear either the door has moved to a lower position or the actuator has moved up into the dryer. May I ask...

The door switch or actuator is broken. A common problem. On most Kenmore dryers this is replace by lifting the top. Since you haven't given the whole model number I will discuss raising the top on the most common model.

If your model has a lint filter at the top the slide show below should show you how to raise the top.

Kenmore Dryer

Disconnect power to unit. Lift the cover from the lint filter or if yours is the one with a filter and cover together, remove the whole filter. You will see 2 screws under the cover/filter, remove them. Now, you will need a putty knife or a thin shafted straight screw driver to remove the top panel. Push the putty knife or screw driver to "pop" the front top clips. The top panel will hinge back towards the wall and can be left there. Just inside the top of the front panel, you will see 2 screws, remove them. You will see the wires for the door switch on the right side. *** the top of the front panel toward you to gain access to the switch for replacement.

Reverse process for reassembly. Good Luck

Looking for a timer for a kenmore 90 series dryer Model M-460-G

HI, I would check the fuse in the dryer first. here is how: UNPLUG the dryer! Remove the rear panel of the dryer and locate the fuse. It is white and ¼” wide and 3” long. It is located on the blower housing. Remove the wires and check to see if it has continuity. If it does not, you need to replace it. This is very comon problem and the timer will still make a noise when the fuse is bad.
Please let me know if this help or if I can assist you further.
