SOURCE: dryer wont start

Sounds like your thermal fuse is open.
It is located behind the back panel.
It's short and skinny with two blue wires going to it.

Sounds like door switch. Open door and push on door switch. you should here a clicking noise. If you can open the top of the dryer. put the 2 wires together of the door switch. Make sure it is unplugged when doing this. Make sure you use electrical tape when you put it together. Temp fix. Get a new switch

There are several models of the ALTO and the dash varies from one model to another.
You need to look for two mounting screws at the extreme ends , the fittings of the AC, system needs to be checked.
But to look for noise you can use a good inspection lamp to probe within , start or run the car with help as you observe and listen to find the noise. It can be a loose screw which can be taken out using a magnet or maybe if the speedo cable is loose.( old model)

The dryer makes a new noise now when the drum is turning. It is a steady "tick -- tick -- tick -- tick --etc" which is laid over the normal sounds of the motor, the turning drum, and the...

You have done a good job of isolating the noise. Sounds like you will have to replace your drive motor. Very likely a mechanical problem in your motor, that is not going to fix itself. If you continue to run your dryer with the noise coming from your motor, you run the risk of the motor burning out electrically and causing a fire or a shock hazard. It is unlikely that this will happen, but it is possible and thereby not worth the risk of getting shocked or having a fire. The Whirlpool Duet Dryer is the best dryer built, so it is worth replacing the motor. Good luck, Appliance Specialists

You have a bad thermal fuse , usually caused by lint blockage from the filter or vent hose .

Kenmore dryer not running

Ticking sound is the timer running--so it is not the problem unless a contact has failed or a wire has come loose.  Broken door switch, thermostat failed in open position, or clogged lint filter/exhaust vent/outlet would keep unit from running.  If you can hear the motor running but the drum is not turning then the drum belt is broken.
