Check the timer switch. All the power goes through that switch and they do fail over time. If that isn't the source of the problem, then check the door switch. When they fail, just like a top-load washer door switch, NOTHING will work because it senses the door is open even when it's closed. Those are two most obvious things and the easiest to check.

Hope that helps!

Dryer has power...nothing electronic gets power


Remove the rear panel and check the dryers thermal limiter fuse, it may be blown due to dirt and lint build up in the cabinet or a shorted heating element or both..

Our dryer just suddenly stopped! We have no light and it seems no power. We checked out fuse box and everything is fine there. Does this dryer have a fuse that would cause all electricity to stop?


Hello
No .Double check your cicuit breakers.If your dryer is electric there are two breakers.Switch all the way off then all the way on to reset.
I if ok then suspect door switch .It kills everything and if stuck ,the light too.

Happy hunting

Dryer wont turn on. Breaker in breaker box is fine. No light inside dryer. What's wrong?


Dryers run off 220v, and sometimes only one leg of the breaker trips. So you need to flip the breaker all the way off, and then back on. Sometimes the breaker feels off but is not fully reset. Make sure you completely trip it off then back on. Does the dryer light work now? Is there any indication that it's getting some power? If the breaker is fine and your still not getting power, then the next step is to make sure you have power coming to the plug behind the dryer. At this point you should only continue if your comfortable working with electricity. Once you move the dryer you can check the outlet with a meter, or other circuit tester. If you got power here, then you'll need to start checking things on the dryer. you can remove the plate where the cord goes into the dryer and look for loose or burnt wiring there. If that looks ok, then you'll need to start taking the dryer apart; front panel, top, back, etc, as needed to access the wiring and controls. From here you can trace the wiring from the supply to the controls and to the motor, etc. look for anything burn, If nothing looks out of place you can start checking temp sensors, or fusable links. If this is above your head, then stop where your not comfortable and have checked by a service technician.

Dryer not turning on

My kenmore dryer will not come on - was working fine and then nothing- checked the electric plug and breaker box


Jun 08, 2009 - after checking all the timers start button thermal fuse at element, finally found another thermal fuse at the front of the dryer on top of the exhaust blower. Checked out bad on meter and replaced it for $8.00 at local repair shop. Dryer started right up.

Dryer won't come on. it is plugged in and the outlet and breaker checked out ok.


are you getting voltage when you say you checked outlet? is it a gas or electric dryer? should have 220 or so at dryer for electric and 120 for gas. if voltage ok, trace it through to fuse most likely. no light in dryer means no voltage...

Dryer does'nt run. checked breaker, thermal fuse, starter relay, timer stops when door is opened, starts when closed?


2 more things could be wrong,check the blower box to see if you have a thermister thermostat on it,check that with your omns meter,the other thing is the motor is no longer strong enough to turn the drum and it heat up and tips off,let me know what you find-mike
