SOURCE: dryer stopped working

plumber, pop the top on the dryer by pushing on the two clips just under the top on each side. In the back you will see the heater. You want to check the high limit thermostat (this one sits on the top side of the heater) and the thermal fuse (sits on the side about 4 inches down. Unplug the dryer and check them with a meter. If either shows open (no continuity) replace them. Make sure your venting is not clogged up and the heater is not grounded or fractured. Part number for the high limit is 53-0771 and for the thermal fuse is LA-1053. Check these first...Catriver...post back. Unable to find your exact model, but I do have cye4000ayw. parts should be the same.

Problem: Push On Button, Press to Start. Click. Sensing. No Tumbling.

Solution: Called repairperson. Replaced Thermal Fuse (Part 3390719) and also suggested having venting system checked (ours vents through attic). Charged $198.00. This did not appear to be a problem that a layperson could fix, although a very handy person might be able to do it.

SOURCE: Kenmore 80 series electric dryer wont start

Push the button manually and see if the light goes off . If it does , then the problem is the thermal fuse (a white slim piece of plastic with 2 wires connected to it ) located on the blower housing beneath the drum .

My kenmore 400 series dryer will not start. It has electricity the inside light comes on when I open the door. I push the start button and nothing happens.


There is a thermocouple on the inside that prevents the dryer from getting too hot. If this burns out this opens the circuit so the dryer will not work but all other functions will work.

Dryer interior light and motor will not turn on


plug something else into the wall outlet to make sure you're getting power there and try changing the bulb.if there is power check the door switch,move the paddle in and out and you should hear a clicking sound,if you don't change out the door switch,also check the back of the dryer at the block where the power cord connects to the dryer and make sure you have power there.also is there a gfi plug anywhere near the dryer that might have to be reset,i've seen this,also i've come across whoever wired the outlet switched the hot wire and the neutral around so when the machine is plugged in the wiring isn't correct

Just stopped working still has power-inside light comes on and timer makes noise when you turn dial but does not start when you push start button


This sounds like the door switch. But it could also be the non-resettable thermal fuse inside. Open the door, depress the door switch until it clicks, and while holding it in see if the dryer starts.

Dryer will not start,put a new start button,


The dryer is electric? not gas? If so you may have 110 and 1 side and not on the other. Reset the breaker and make sure you have 110v on each hot leg. You say start button I assume you mean door switch for the light? Have you checked the bulb? If this is already yes to this point open the top up and look at the wires coming to the door switch 1 of them is most likely chewed into by a mouse or something. the light has to have power to it all the time the door is open no power no light because I dont believe it gets any power except from the main power terminals not the timer or anything else .

Dryer stopped working after working w/door open or closed


Sounds as if the door switch/latch had stuck.the smell was probably a small short. try unplugging unit. But I would imagine you need door latch/switch replaced
