The start switch on a Kenmore 70 series dryer sits directly behind the button you push in to start the dryer cycle, and it can occasionally go bad. Accessing this switch for repair or replacement is relatively simple; just follow the steps below. (These instructions were written specifically for the Kenmore 73742 heavy duty dryer, but they should apply to all of the dryers in the Kenmore 70 series.)
1. Unplug the dryer from the wall outlet.
2. Pull the dryer away from the wall so you have enough room to get to the rear side of the dryer.
3. Remove the rear access panel. This panel sits horizontally along the upper rear side of the dryer, and it is held in by six slotted screws. Put the screws aside, but do not lose them.
4. The start switch is located on the far left side (as you are looking at the rear of the dryer). It is a small black box with wires coming off of it. Disconnect these wires, but note which wire connects to which terminal for when you reattach them.
To remove the switch and button assembly as one piece, you'll first need to remove the knob from the front of the dryer. You should be able to pull the knob straight off, but if it's tight a pair of pliers might help. The round white plastic piece might come off with the knob; put it somewhere safe so you don't lose it. Then go back to the rear of the dryer and pull the black plastic tab (sticking vertically away from the switch) toward you to release it, and rotate the assembly clockwise until it pulls free from the panel.
To remove the switch from the button and housing, use a small flathead screwdriver to pry the switch up. Two of the four sides are tabbed; pry these two sides up to release the switch. There is a spring that sits behind the start button -- be sure not to lose this spring.
Here's the trick: The Spacemaker dryer is the same as many other GE dryers but is upside down!
1. Unplug the dryer. 2. Flip the dryer upside down so the white panel is now on top and the unfinished steel panel is on the bottom. 3. Remove the 2 screws that connect the bottom, white panel from the back and lift up to remove. 4. Pull off the Settings and Fabric knobs on the front of the dryer. Take off the front control panel (remove the 2 screws). 5. Remove the 2 screws that attach the front panel (located behind the control panel you just removed). Hold the dryer drum by the top edge and pull the front panel away (note that the panel will be hooked to the rest of the dryer at the bottom corners). DO NOT PULL AWAY ENTIRELY! 6. Disconnect the wiring that is attached to the front panel (these come apart easily by hand but you might want to mark the wiring so you know where to connect it when reassembling).

You can perform some Whirlpool electric
dryer timer troubleshooting to determine if the timer is faulty or if
the cause is somewhere else within the dryer.
Access the Timer
Unplug the Whirlpool dryer power
cord from the dryer electrical outlet. The timer is inside the control
panel on the top of the dryer. Pull the dryer away from the back wall so
that the control console can be raised without hitting the wall.
Remove the single screw on each end of the control console that
secures the control console housing to the top of the dryer. Grab the
sides of the control console and raise the front of the console up and
toward the rear of the dryer. With the control console in the service
position you will now be able to test the timer.
Test the Timer
Locate the dryer timer inside
the control console. It will be directly behind the dryer timer control
knob. There are two wires that connect from the dryer to the dryer
timer. Place a piece of masking tape on each wire and write on the tape
what terminal each wire attaches. Use a pair of needle nose pliers to
remove the wires from the terminal ends on the timer.
Set the scale on a volt-ohm meter to the RX1 setting to measure the
ohms of the timer. Place one probe to one terminal and the other probe
to the remaining terminal. You should get a reading between 2,000 ohms
and 3,000 ohms. If you do not get this reading, replace the timer.
Replacing the Timer
Pull the control knob off of the
timer shaft on the face of the control console. Remove the two screws
that secure the timer to the inside of the control console. Pull the
timer out and take the timer with you to an appliance repair facility.
Compare the new timer to the old timer to make sure that the mounting
Place the new timer inside the console and secure the timer with the
two retaining screws. Attach the wires to the timer and remove the
masking tape from the wires. Lower the control console and reattach the
console to the top of the dryer with the retaining screws. Push the
control knob back over the timer shaft. Push the dryer back against the
wall and plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet.
please there is no need to start your dryer without the switch. you can easily replace the switch yourself just follow this instructions below to replace your switch.
things you will need are philip and hex and nut screwdrivers, putty knife and Replacement "start" switch. then
Disconnect the dryer from the electrical outlet. Slide the dryer out from the wall and disconnect the dryer vent from the dryer's back panel.
Loop a piece of string behind the "Start" button and pull forward on the string to pop the knob off the switch's post.
Access the interior of the control panel. Depending on your model of dryer, there are several ways to access the interior of the control panel. On older dryers, there will be an access panel along the back of the control panel that can be removed once all of the retaining screws have been removed. On newer dryers, the control panel is held in place by screws in the front or spring clips. Remove the plastic end caps on the control panel and remove the screws underneath. If your dryer has no end caps, slide a putty knife under the corners of the control panel and lift up on the knife to release the clips. Rotate the control panel toward the rear of the dryer to access the interior.
Unplug the wires from the switch by sliding them off the contact terminals on the switch. Make a note which wire connects to which terminal so you can easily connect them to the new switch.
Press the release tab to unlock the switch and slide it out of its socket. If you have an older dryer, remove the retaining screw to remove the switch. Slide a new switch into the socket and press it down until the release tab locks into place. If you removed a retaining screw, replace the screw. Reconnect the wires.
Rotate the control panel back down on the dryer or replace the rear access panel. Replace the knob and reconnect the dryer vent. Plug the dryer back into the electrical outlet.
there are bearings or a bearing behind the tub, need too make sure you unplug power cord first . then open the top and front so you can get a look at it. bearing is in the center back behind tub. this should get you started !!! sounds like a little grease will take care of it . good luck !!!!!!
No reset switch, you can try unplugging the system for 1 minute then plugging it back in. If I where you I would check the outlet and make sure you are getting the correct volts, 115 or 220. IF you are then you need to open the top behind the knobs and make sure that the fuse is not popped if it is not then you need to replace the control board. Start from the basics and follow the power flow. So basically, wall, into dryer, transformers, fuse, etc.
You will want to take out the screws on the back of the dryer behind the control panel. Once off you will see all the wires and such connecting to the timer and the knobs. Make sure you disconnect the power first before digging in in there. When you find the spot that your knob goes take that control part off and place your knob in. Once you have the back off you will see how it goes on. If you have any other questions feel free to ask me and please let me know if this was helpful to you. Good luck and glad I could help.
