Question about Kenmore Dryers
Checked thermal fuse, door switch and start button and all are ok!
If all others check ok, there are other things it could be. First the motor could be faulty. The timer could be faulty. these two sometimes don't have a die hard way of testing them, they just have to be replaced. The other things you can check are the idler pully switch (if equipped) and the centrfugal switch. Your idler pully switch would obviuosly be located by the idler pully and it is either open or closed. The centrifugal switch will either be in the 'head' of the unit, or behind the front panel by the motor. take the switch out and continuity test terminals 1 & 2, 5 & 6, and 5 & BK or 3 with the button pushed both in and out. the results should be; OUT 1 & 2: continuity, 5 & 6 continuity, 5 & BK (3) resistance. IN 1 & 2 resistace, 5 & 6 resistance, 5 & BK (3) continuity. the switch is faulty if you don't get the above results. Other than these, it's probably somthing stupid like a bad pigtail or bridge. Let me know how things go.
