Question about GE WSM2700W Unitized Spacemaker Washer and Dryer

1 Answer

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 ? I have the exact same problem - I changed the belt, but that wasn't the problem

The problem is the motor switch . Try spinning the drum with the door switch held in and pressing the start button all at the same time .If the problem is lint in the switch that might be all you have to do . If that don't work you will need to replace the motor and no special tool required. I can walk you through it.

I have a Kenmore elite washing machine and when I power it on it goes on . then I push the start button and I hear a humming noise and the timer is flashing . Please help.


oh oh a humming noise usually not a good sign, and usually is from a bad motor with windings that have gone out. in ur case u may be hearing what u think is a humming noise? but in reality may be a bad push start button which can sound like a hum but is more of a buzzing sound

I have a Kenmore top loading large capacity washer model 1028882791. It began washing as usual then began to making a loud humming sound. The agitation stopped. It only makes a loud humming sound. I...


The humming sound is coming from the drive motor running but unable to drive the agitator nor the basket to spin. The drive motor is definitely running as the drain function works because of the fact that drain pump is directly coupled with the rear spline of the motor. The drain pump works in either direction as long as the motor runs. The problem is obviously a broken motor coupler which transfers the mechanical energy of the motor to the transmission. The solution then is to replace the broken coupler. Click on the link below for the detailed step-by-step procedure in replacing the motor coupler.

For Kenmore model 110 62942100 dryer, i push the start button and the dryer turns on, but then shuts off when I release the button. I checked to make sure door is closed.


greetings,

Its possible you have a defective relay. this dryer has a start relay for motor and one for heater. they are the same. if you can find them and know someone who is ok around electric. you can have them find which one is which and switch wiring. if it starts, buy a relay..if not, the motor is defective..i'll bet its the relay..Bruce

Kenmore elite dryer model #110.63952102 start button wont stay on everything else works


I have the same problem with my Kenmore Elite dryer (model#110.74992300), and I replaced both the motor and heater relay and the problem solved. You can get the relay from www.mouser.com for $3 each. The model for the relay is T9AP1D52-48. You may want to open up the dryer to verify the relay model, it is printed on the relay.
