Re: dryer want start
does anything with the dryer work at all? if nothing works then from reading around it sounds like the motor went bad on you and they can be very spendy. but to make sure i need the model number and the exact brand.

get a meter,unplug the dryer and read out the fuse,pull one of the wires off when you read it out,also when was the last time you cleaned out the dryer?if it's the fuse usually the air isn't moving very well,you need to clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,vac out the inside of dryer where the motor is and clean out the vent line and make sure the outside vent is clear,if it's a long run from the back of dryer to the outside i use a leaf blower to blow out the vent line,make sure you have 240 coming in at the back of dryer,you could have a blown fuse,if the thermal fuse is good,check the thermostats on the heater box and read out the heater,good luck,if i can help with anything else let me know
The fuses should be close to where the cord comes into the back of the dryer. You may need to turn the dryer on its side or remove the back cover to gain access. Unplug the dryer before starting your search.
on the kenmore dryers you have to take the back cover off, should be 9 quarter inch screws and when looking at the back of the unit on the lint trap cover on the left there will be a small white fuse with 2 prongs this is called the thermal fuse. There is one quarter inch screw holding it on just remove the screw and replace the fuse and that will fix ya all up. You can call sears with your model number to get the part number and price, they usually don't go for more than $10. Number is 1-800-4my-home.
IF your hearig a click when you push the start button then the button and relay are good check the saftey switch on the door to see if it has come loose and follen down or moved back if the switch is not pressed the motor will not work also I have seen the switches go bad you need to unplug the dryer and cross the too wires togeather plug the dryer back in and press the start button if she starts order a new swith. The motor could also be bad you nees to remove the back cover and check to see when the button is pressed if you are getting the correct voltage you will need a volt meter to check this they cost around 10- 20 bucks if you have correct voltage from the wires and the conections to the motor are ok the motor is no good and needs to be replaced hope this helps...
There is a fuse :) If you pull out the dryer from the wall and unplug it Then yopu remove back panel.Once you have panel off at the bottom left corner there is a small white fuse with 2 small blue wires going to it.Good luck
i would check the thermal fuse on the back of the dryer where the vent come out remove the back panell it is a small white with2 blue wirs most of the time and one screw holding it in un less you dryer does not have a removeable back then there is a removable front cover acrose the bottom remove it and the fuse is on the blwer housing the in the front should look the same and described above.
if filter is on top remove back cover just to left and above vent outlet will a small white object this a thermal fuse if for some reason vent becomes plugged or element should overheat it will blow ..if replacing fixes problem be sure vent hose is not flattened behind dryer and there is good air flow to outside
