Dryer won't stay running after pushing the button.


that isn't the model number,it will start with 110. or 417.send the full model number and i can look up your dryer,most likely it's the even heat board or the motor relay but without the model number i can't look it up for you,these parts are in the top console,call the parts store give them the model number and they'll give you the right part or send it to me,let me know what you find

Dryer will not start. when push button is


Most likely the start switch or door switch has failed. Other failures can also cause this symptom: bad timer, broken belt, bad centrifugal switch, bad motor, etc.

Dryer will not come on at all. working fine on last load


check house fuse/circuit breaker
door switch
if an electric dryer the thermal fuse as they are often wired into the motor run circuit
check for power to the motor in start and run circuit, if present motors spent.
if not present trace back to timer and verify timer is sending power, if not timers spent.
more likely circuit breaker, door switch or thermal fuse if electric dryer..
hope this helps,
best of luck,

Kenmore dryer not running


Ticking sound is the timer running--so it is not the problem unless a contact has failed or a wire has come loose.  Broken door switch, thermostat failed in open position, or clogged lint filter/exhaust vent/outlet would keep unit from running.  If you can hear the motor running but the drum is not turning then the drum belt is broken.

Dryer problem


with power disconnected
follow the wires from the start button, to a relay,
check the wires (both ends) of all leads to the relay and reconnect any that have fallen off. (crimp tighter if they have fallen)
Check door switch function and connection.
check timer connections
the relay start-button timer and door switch comprise a latching circuit, when the start button is pressed the relay is supposed to latch closed and supply current to heater and motor. if the latching circuit disconnects the relay does not latch closed, and only runs as long as the start button is pressed.
if nothing has disconnected one side of the relay has usually failed, and the connection is not being made to latch the circuit
replace relay

Kenmore Electric Dryer..Timer runs backwards only sometimes.


Probablyl the timer motor. Synchonosous motors that run these timers have a internal part that insure they always start the same direction.
