There is a wiring diagram on the access panel on the back, or in the control head.

Follow the path from incoming power through all switches and leading to the timer.

I suspect either the door switch or start switch has failed.

JUST MOVED TO A NEW LOCATION AND THE BRAVOS DRYER WONT WORK.POWER BUTTON WILL NOT POWER DOWN AND PAUSE START BUTTON WILL DO NOTHING.


Hi,
Double check the power source, you may need to reset the breaker. It would be rare that the dryer would fault internally during transit because a gas ignitor you be the loss and you do not have one. Check the power supply and confirm you have at least 220 volt to wall and dryer. Get back to me if you need more help.
Thanks

When dryer is switched on the red light (start/pause) button keeps bleeping and machine wont work


It seems that the program controller unit is faulty or has hung up . Remove the power and keep aside , check if the controller unit has any power issues.
If the unit does not reset the processor must be checked.check for short on the motor , check if the door switch is working.

i would double check the power a dryer runs on 220 volts if it is only getting 110 volts it will only run half of the dryer,, that means it could have power to the motor and light but not the control panel or vise versa 75% of the time when i work on a issue like this that is what it turns out to be,, take the cover off of the back of the unit where the plug goes in you will see three screws that the plug is held on with you will need a tester that reads 220 volts put one lead of the tester on the left screw and the othe on the right screw you should read 220 volts,, if not put one lead on the center screw and touch the other lead ont the other screws one at a time until you find which one doesnt read 110 volts,, if it reads the full 220 volts then you will need to check all the wires inside,, if all is ok you will need to replace the main control board

I have a Kenmore Series 70 dryer wont start, just hums


Check for correct voltage at the terminal block on the back of the dryer, where the power cord attaches to the dryer.You should be getting 220/240 volts, check by way of a voltage tester.
If the voltage is correct, then could be the motor capacitor or the motor itself, or start button?
Good Luck !
