SOURCE: My Kenmore 110.66962501 dryer doesn't start.

if your sure the thermal fuse is good,, check the start switch,, making sure the dryer select setting is set to something other than off, also, the door switch . you can Jumper both these switches, I'd try the door switch first as they go out more often . if you have a meter and want to test the switch Some door switches have only two metal prongs extending from the body, while others have three. Those with three terminals will have a common (COM) terminal, a normally closed (N.C.) terminal, and a normally open (N.O.) terminal. Those switches with only two terminals will have either a common terminal and a normally open terminal, or a common terminal and a normally closed terminal. We are providing directions for testing a door switch with three terminals. If you are dealing with a door switch that has only two terminals, ignore the part of this test that does not apply to you.Use your ohmmeter to test your switch for continuity. Begin by setting your ohmmeter to measure resistance at a scale of R x 1. If yours is a two-wire switch, touch each tester probe to each of the switch's terminals. You should receive a reading of infinity. While the probes are still touching the switch's terminals, press in on and hold the switch. The reading should change to zero.

Kenmore Elite Heavy Duty King size capacity Quiet Pak 1 dryer doesn't turn on


Check to see if the door switch is working. When you push and release it, it should click. If not, it will need to be replaced.
If the switch is good, then the only other component that would cause that problem is the thermal fuse. If you could post your model number I could direct you to the part you need.

Makes a humming noise but doesn't turn


Try this, open the dryer door and hold down the door light switch. Turn on the dryer and press start.When you hear the motor humming, turn the drum clockwise with your hand to see if it will turn. If itruns, you have a bad motor and will need to be replaced. If it doesn't turn, something is jammedinside and you will need to disassemble the unit to find the jam.
Hope this helps.

Dryer turns on but doesn't tumble


  • If you can hear your motor spinning, then it is most likely caused by a broken drum belt.
  • If you can hear your motor 'humming' like it it stuck, then you might have faulty 'motor start capacitor'.
  • If you cannot hear the motor, then it maybe the drying controller board or sometimes the motor itself.
All cases involve dismantling the dryer and best left to a qualified dryer mechanics: check your warranty as the unit may still be under warranty (in which case, call the manufacturer help desk for instructions).

Hope the information helps!
