Question about Kenmore 62602 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

No response after hitting start switch

No attempt by motor to start drum movement. Heating element does heat periodically as if it believes that the dryer is in the middle of a cycle. This seems to continue even with cycle/timer switch in OFF position.

Normally this means you have a 'hot to neutral short' in your element. You will need to locate your element and find the part of the coil that is contacting other metal. When you think you found and fixed it you can test it by taking you ohm meter and putting one probe on the element and the other end on a ground, if you have open line, your good, if you show continuity, there is still a short in it and you may need to replace your element.

I have a Whirlpool Cabrio model #WED6200SW1. The control panel turns on and when I hit start the heating element heats but it will not start. There is a slight humming noise but I can't tell if it's...


The humming noise indicates the motor is either trying to run, but not doing so because of a bad motor or capacitor, or the motor IS running but cannot spin the drum because the drive belt is off/broken. If you can spin the drum easily by hand, the belt is probably the problem.

Dryer starts but will not stay running


Hi,
This is what is probably going on. There are two parts in the motor that cause the drum to rotate.
One of them is "start" winding. It literally starts the drum's rotation. Once the drum motor has started the drum to move. The second portion of the motor, known as the "run" winding takes over and keeps the drum turning. When the Drum winding burns out. The same symptom is caused when the switch attached to the motor is also damaged. In your case, although this is rare. I think it may be the switch.
The reason being is that the motor has a combination switch that also connects one side to the heating element. In a nutshell, If you get the dryer not continuing to turn AND the heating element stays on. There is a problem with the switch.
If you get the heating element going on when you push the start button but turns off when you release the button. The problem is the motor having a burned out run winding. Either way, it is less labor intensive to replace the motor when you take it out. Doing it switch is not easy. Hope this helps. If not write back to me and we can continue.
HAVE A HAPPY NEW YEAR
Best, Mark

Dryer won't stay going after button is released and the door safety button is still functioning, also the heating element is still working.

Dryer powers up but won't start - smell of electrical burning. Is it the motor bushes? zanussi TC7103W


Electric dryers usually have a motor with a switch that prevents the heating element from being powered until the motor is spinning. In series with this are limit switches to prevent overheating if there is too much lint or too little air flow around the heating element. Also, the motors are induction or brushless. So the smell is coming from the heating element burning off some lint nearby as it reaches the high limit temperature and shuts off. This can be due to two conditions if we can assume the motor is running (has a switch that is closing to power the heating element). The most likely condition is that the drive belt is off the pulley or broken and the drum is not turning. You will be able to tell this easily by sounds or by opening the door to see the drum slowing down. If that's not it, examine the blower which forces air through the drum. There are a lot of variations, so look for air intake and drum exhaust ports that can be clogged with a sock, lint, etc.

Heating element heats up, but dryer will not spin.


Since you stated that the heating element is heating up I believe it rules out the thermal switches.
When you push the start button does it make the motor make any noise? Maybe hear the motor humming? Two things to check for are Broken Belt or Bad Motor:
This requires common sense and since you are going to be bypassing the safety features you need be CAREFUL.

First, with door open, manually press in door switch to by-pass door safety, then press "start", try to manually start the dryer by spinning the drum by hand, If you hear the motor humming but it does not start spinning on it's own; most likely it is a broken belt which can be changed without much difficulty for less than $15 bucks. NOW if it then continues to spin on it's own GET YOUR HAND OUT OF THERE and close the door; you have a bad motor and even though it started it needs to be replaced. A motor for that is available for just under $100 bucks and is not to bad to replace, I would recommend replacing the belt at the same time since you will be in there. Good Luck!

Dryer will not start, but does have power. The light and heating element are working, but the drum and blower are not functioning? Door switch is working properly, and there were not any previous...


The components to check include the motor's start switch & capacitor, if so equipped, the push to start switch, & all associated wiring. Check to see if motor & drum turn freely. Does the motor hum when starting is attempted?
