Kenmore heavy duty dryer model#86870800 wont start running

When we push the start button, it will lightly click like it is ready to go but wont actually start. Is it the starter button that is bad? How hard is that to change ourselves? Any suggestions?

Hi ya, rkallen
Welcome to fixya.com


You said, when we push the start button, it will lightly click like it is ready to go but wont actually start. Is it the starter button that is bad? How hard is that to change ourselves? Any suggestions?

Sounds like you have a bad starter switch inside or a bad relay.
Doing it your self you will not be able to determine if it is the starter switch or the relay. You need someone who knows how to use test equipment!

Kenmore Elite Heavy Duty King size capacity Quiet Pak 1 dryer doesn't turn on


Check to see if the door switch is working. When you push and release it, it should click. If not, it will need to be replaced.
If the switch is good, then the only other component that would cause that problem is the thermal fuse. If you could post your model number I could direct you to the part you need.

the push to start switch holding coil is getting weak and can no longer either make contact or drop out shutting down the unit,there is a coil that energizes to hold the switch on and when the contacts or coil get weak the unit either wont start or start and drop out/quit,you can test this switch by bypassing it and if unit keeps running the switch is definitely bad then the unit is a whirlpool produced for kenmore by the 110# you provided so you need to order a switch either thru whirlpool or sears

The switch is probably bad or the door switch isn't being made by the door pin some machines will start with the button pushed and the door switch open.
