Start switch not working

The start switch on my Kenmore model 417.93042300 only works after working it around a bit. I want to replace it but don't know how to get the front pane off so I can get at the switch.

You will have to remove the back panel on the control console, to give you a better visual on the unit go to sears.com/parts and in the model # put your info in then click on control/top panel view. Good luck

Kenmore model # 86470810 buzzes when I press start but won't run


The motors centrifugal switch may be stuck. Try having someone start it while pressing in the door switch while you rotate the drum with your hand by grabbing one of the drum vanes. I don't know which direction your drum rotates. Try both. This may start the drum turning on its own and resetting the switch

check the actual door switch,, you can jumper it to see if this is the problem, Just connect the 2 wires together , if this cures the problem replace the switch

I have a Kenmore 500 series dryer. The dryer just stopped working but the light stays on when the door is closed.


the door switch is broke.when you push on the paddle of the door switch the lite should go out,if you don't see the paddle it most likely broke off,you need to send the full model number next time,it will start with 110.or similar.the door switch is a safety so the machine won't run until the door is closed,if the switch is broke no power will go to start the dryer

Push to start switch does not work


That is a bad motor. Run winding is gone. This video shows how to replace it on a newer model:

Dryer won't stay on


The motor centrifugal switch is not switching from the start winding to the run winding. The switch should stay in the run winding when the motor picks up speed unless power to the motor is interrupted or cut off. The switch is replaceable on most dryer models but sometimes it is an integral or built-in part of the dryer motor and failure of the switch requires the replacement of the motor. Indicate the exact model number of the dryer for more accurate troubleshooting and repair advice.

Kenmore Dryer (Model #11073952101) starts, but WON'T stay ON


your motor maybe going out. theres a switch on the motor that starts it . on most models the start switch is built into the motor. however some models the switch can be replaced by itself.

Push to start switch only works when held in.


Go thru the back to access the push to start via 1/4 inch screws. More than likely the push to start isnt the problem with the heat issue. i would lean towards the motor relay and the heater relays that are on this unit

My Kenmore dryer turns on as soon as the timer is set .


Two possibilities:
1) Least likely cause. Start button is not opening when released. Don't know how far you wish to go with this but it will require some troubleshooting.
2) Most likely cause. Motor start switch has a set of contacts that close when the dryer starts and this set of contacts "seals" around the push button. If this is the case, a new switch is in order. Switch is normally replaceable without replacing the motor.
Other option is use "as is".

For heat issue I had replaced the heat relay switch a year ago and that worked. For the start button holding issue I replaced the motor relay switch and the dryer is fine again.
