Kenmore dryer Thanks for your response! I've tried what you suggested and that did not work. I have a parts booklet, could it be the sensor next to the flame?

My dryer will not start. It is Kenmore model# 110.62622101. There is power and the door clicks closed but it will not start.


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
Try this first: Reach inside the drum and move the dryer drum by hand for about 1/2 revolution SLOWLY. Move the drum in a CLOCKWISE direction so you do not cause the ifler pulley to fly off. Then try a start.

If this does not makeit run then the next step is to make sure there is power at the push to start switch. Item 5 this link: (You accept responsibility for working on live circuits)

Then you check the thermal fuse item 1 this link:

Most likely the thermal fuse has failed.... the reason these fail is due to poor air-flow. Clean everything... wash the lint filter with vinegar and water, then soap and water. Vacuum all the internal ducting and the lint filter cavity. Use a folded wire coat hanger if necessary to knock the lint free so you can vacuum it out. Go outside and check the thru the wall vent flapper for blockage. THEN replace the thermal fuse. Turn on the dryer and check air flow with the rear ducting disconnected. It should push a relaxed hand gently away from the duct connection. If you do not have this kind of air flow after an avid cleaning and lint removal session... there is most likely a problem with the blower wheel spinning on the motor shaft / broken fan hub. Blower wheel / fan is item 37 of this link:

The other possibiliies are the motor switch and the timer. Most of the time the problem is the thermal fuse failure due to lint build up.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

My Kenmore Elite dryer works except there is no heat to dry.I am looking for suggestions to repair. Thanks


There is a moister sensor in your dryer that detects any lint build up inside the exhaust vents. If any obstruction is inside the exhaust tubes this sensor will put the heat in the check mode. Inspect and clean thoroughly and see if it will heat up again
