Depending on age of unit.. there are 2 screws on each side of the console (older unit) on newer unit you have 2 white plastic covers.. pop those out and unscrew the 2 screws and lift up the console.. you have to get to the starter switch from the back of console.. good luck..

Open the control panel to access the start switch. If it has 3 wires,replace the start switch. It has a defective coil.

When I push the start button the dryer will not start


May need to replace the starter swithch behind the control panel. MAKE SURE ALL POWER IS DISCONNECTED. If you still hear a humming sound when you hit the start button then it is not the switch, but the motor and if that is the case you may want to look into your warranty.

Dryer turns on when botton held down


Motor has a "Run" winding centrifugal switch that may need to be replaced. Start button energizes the starter winding but when the "run" switch fails the motor won't keep running. Switch is easily replaced without taking motor apart.

Dryer wont start. starter switch is new and timer will run when the door is closed


HI. if the timer is running, and the wiring harness is in good condition, this will confirm motor failure. I would advise to test the operational value of the door switch as well but if the door switch is working, this will only lead to motor failure.

Kenmore dryer keeps on going and going


The timer is bad. It is located behind the knobs and can be replaced really easily. The price for a new timer is about 35 dollars. If this helped please rate

Not normal. Check door switch. As a test you can jump it out to see if the dryer works then. if that does not help then , I i would consider replacing the starter switch.
