Question about Kenmore 63942 Dryer
Brand new Kenmore dryer won't run; water damage about 12 inches from bottom due to basement flooding. Light comes on, nothing else. Fuse tested fine, outlet fine, connection to heating elements fine, thermal fuse tested fine. Cleaned connectors with water and baking soda, still no luck. Didin't appear to be any significant water damage, but left clueless! Any ideas would be great.
First, there is an excellent chance you have some kind of flood damage insurance. It may pay for part of the repair. You did not tell us what is not working but I'll guess it is the motor. On many models, there is a switch on the motor which will not allow the elements to heat unless the motor is powered and running.
