    Same Problem ....can your average person replace this?

  • deereman72 Jan 21, 2009

    same problem. Replaced start relay. Still does not work. I guess the next thing to try is replacing the circuit board (microcomputer on the Sears parts list). $120 plus shipping and handling. Hope it works.

Start button buzzes when pressed, dryer doesn't start.


I assume the buzzing quit when you release the start button. Open the dryer door and slowly rotate the dryer drum in a counterclockwise (CCW) direction. Rotate the drum 2-3 revolutions and then shut the door and see if it will start. If it continues to just hum and not start could indicate a voltage issue, motor issue or a friction issue. Open the door again and locate the door switch plunger in the upper or lower corner on the hinge side of the drum opening. Hold the plunger in while someone begins rotating the drum counterclockwise. While turning the drum counter clockwise and holding the door switch plunger inwards press the start button. If it starts, there is likely a friction problem or motor problem.

I have a kenmore elite quit pac 2 that wont stay running unless you hold the start button down. I dont have much money to fix it but cant afford to buy a new one. What can I do?


  • firstly dont hold your finger on the button
  • by doing this you are running the motor on the start winding
  • this winding is for momentary operation only, just to get things started.
  • You must have a fault in the run circuit of the motor.
  • To save your dryer. dont use it till you get someone who can fix the run circuit. It may only be contact failure, or jammed up with lint.
  • Good luck

Gas dryer - bruner will not come on


Probably a broken belt or a bad start winding. Remove the rear panel and check the fuse mounted on the blower housing. If open replace it and clear the vent to the outside. Click here for fuse locations and pictures.

Dryer shuts off after releasing "push to start"


this problem sounds like it can only be 1 of 2 problems. the start button or the motor is not going into run winding. i found over the years that the blue wire i believe is burnt at the motor. this can be repaired quite easily .cut the wire and strip it putting a new connector on. if you need to you can buy an assortment at a hardware store. if every thing is good check the start button for burnt wire if ok then you most likely have a bad motor. i'm pretty sure though that a wire is burnt off at the motor

Dryer wont stay running


Either the motor relay, or if this is an evenheat dryer, the evenheat control board could be bad.
