Question about Dryers

1 Answer

Have a kenmore 70 110 60702990 that just stopped working when the wife went to use today. Timer does not tick and will not start. Light inside works, door is shut and did the test with the 2 blue wires (nothing happened). Is the timers shot? Timer doesn't click when turned to a time either.

Make sure you perform all checks with the dryer UNPLUGGED.

Double check the thermal fuse just to be sure. It will be located on the air blower housing and should be a white plastic component with two wires connected to it. It should read a short if good. I could be mistaken, but I believe the drum light will still come on with the thermal fuse blown. If I led you astray in my write up, I do apologize. All dryers are not configured the same.

If the thermal fuse is good, pull the connector from the drive motor and inspect it. I have found where these connectors look like they are tight, but actually aren't, causing the connector and wires to burn. If the connector checks good, you have a couple of options. You could have a defective motor. Take a resistance check across the blue wire and violet wire on the motor. This should be your start winding. Resistance should be between 2.4 to 3.8 ohms. If it reads anything higher than 4 ohms, it's recommended that you replace it. If the motor is okay you may have a defective belt switch and/or centrifugal switch. I'm not sure how your dryer is configured. I will need the COMPLETE model number (located around the door opening) to be sure.

Before I can give you further advice about troubleshooting or replacing parts, I need to be sure of what you find. Please post back and let me know.

Make sure it has power. Then:Check the door switch. A little lever sticking down through top right of door opening. If it is not there you will need new door switch(sometimes the little lever breaks off). If it is there and does not click when you press it in you need a new door switch. if it clicks when you close the door then you have a bad thermal fuse.The thermal fuse is found by taking the back of the dryer off. The fuse is an oblong white plastic piece with 2 wires attached.

Door switch part number 3406109
Thermal fuse part number 3392519

If the motor is going thru cycles and the agitator doesn't move, than it means the drive link snapped. cheap repair. it was made to protect the motor and trans. Read the manual before doing this. it will show you how to do it easily. iv'e done mine around 4 times. my wife keeps jamming too many clothes into the thing.

Just stopped working???


sounds like you have either a bad switch or bad timer. is there any humming when the switch is pressed? if so you could have a bad motor

Dryer wont start anymore


If the drum won't rotate, you may have a broken belt. I had a Kenmore and as I recall, you have to pull up the top section to see inside. Good luck.

Dryer stopped working


  • first step, turn your circuit breaker off then back on.
  •  it is common for 220v appliances to trip only one side of the dual breaker resulting in a non-working machine that still seems to have power.
  • another symptom of this would be running with no heat.
if this does not solve your problem, don't give up. there is a couple other things it could be (E.g. door switch). just let me know
