Question about Kenmore 62602 Electric Dryer

Open Question

Kenmore Elec. Dryer Model 66912 (1996)

Dryer will not start when you push the "push to start" relay but there is a loud hum for about 10-12 seconds, then nothing. Occurs on all cycles, cannot push again until switch appears to cool. Continunity on thermal fuse, operating thermostat, thermal cutoff, and high limit thermostat all check closed. Could it be the belt switch ? Afraid it might be the motor, if so how do I go about to remove it ? Do I need any special tools ?

    Same issue. Mine was making scraping noises first, like it needed lubrication. Have checked all connections and circuits in the back panel. Drum spins with some resistance, but can't get into where the motor is located.

Check thermistor with ohm meter, make sure you unplug unit first, make sure wires are removed from thermistor or you will read ohms thru the wiring. If thermistor checks ok, the you have a relay board problem. replace power board.

Pull one wire off the element and start the dryer in a heat cycle . Check power from that wire to the cabinet . Touch the meter to the terminal you pulled that wire off of , and check that voltage . You cannot get correct voltage by checking across the element . Trace the wire NOT getting 120 volts . It will either go to the timer or motor . It will lead you to the problem .

SOURCE: dryer wont start when button is pushed

Did you check the door switch? Electronic control could be an issue but start with the basics and you have covered most of them already... good job.

Sounds like you have some sort of blockage either in the dryer itself or in the exhaust vent.The thermal fuse will blow if the air is not flowing enough.Hope this helps.

There is a high limit switch (looks like a button with two wires hooked to it) on the bottom of the vent frame. When the vent fills up with lent at the bottom it gets hot. For safety, this limit switch will turn heat off. Remove the vent frame and clean it out and check the continuity of the switch. Also, make sure both heater elements are working properly.

Kenmore 90 series dryer, motor wont start, loud


Hi,
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
Hope this will fix your problem for sure.

Kenmore dryer hums but will not start


If it just hums the motor is probably on it's way out. If it makes a growling noise, it's the motor.
