    I have a kenmore 110.62822102 electric dryer that will not come on. I have checked power to the outlet and have tested the cord. Beyond that, I don't know where to check.

My mother has a Kenmore 500 Gas Dryer at least 15 yr. old. Model 110 660 501. It stopped working and shows no indication there is power. Is there a main fuse or reset switch I can look for? We don't...


it would pay to replace dryer if it is 15 yrs old a newer dryer would be more efficent. Check wires from wall and run them to control panel. Ther should be a relay between power cord and switch

Kenmore Dryer Model 66801692


at leas 15 yrs old??? think it's done its time, its a great machine andwould reccomend replacing with a whirlpool/kenmore unit again.no tworth servicing in my opinion, average call here in new york 150-225, anbd those are for simple issues. id rather put money into new unit! bit be sure to check your venting id say 85% of dryers taking too long to dry are vent related issues

Need help with OLD dryer


IF YOU MEAN THAT THE DRYER STARTS BACK UP WHEN YOU CLOSE THE DOOR, THE PUSH TO START SWITCH IS SHORTED. CHECK TO SEE IF THE PUSH TO START BUTTON IS STUCK PRESSED IN AND NOT SPRINGING BACK OUT.
IF IT IS STUCK, TRY WD-40 TO LOOSTEN IT. OTHERWISE, REPLACE THE SWITCH.

IF THE DRYER KEEPS RUNNING WHEN YOU "OPEN" THE DOOR, THE DOOR SWITCH IS SHORTED. REPLACE THE DOOR SWITCH.

The start button works like a push-on switch that engages the timer switch. It's all one unit. It isn't engaging because the internal lever the engages the switch is either broken or worn out. The start timer/switch will need to be replaced.
