THE DRYER WONT START,FILTER AND VENTS ARE CLEAR. HOW DO YOU FIX THIS PROBLEM?


Several reasons can cause a no start dryer condition. I'll start with the easy ones first. If a gas dryer, it runs off 120 volts. Check the house fuse or breaker or plug a light into the dryer outlet to make sure you have power. If outlet is OK then we have several dryer problems possible. If the dryer is electric, it run off 220 volts. You need a voltage tester to check the 220 house plug. Could still be a problem with the house 220 breaker. On the dryer itself, the first thing to check is the door switch. If the door switch is bad the dryer will think the door is open even when it is actually closed. Next, some dryers have a switch on the internal belt system. If the belt breaks, the dryer will not run.(only on some newer models). Couls also be a bad timer assembly. Some of these may need a tech to actually test since it requires taking the dryer apart to get to these item.

Do you hear the timer ticking?
Make sure there is 220 volts present at the terminal where the cord hooks to the dryer.
Inspect the wires for loose or burned.
Check continuity on the door switch.
Check continuity on the start switch.

Dryer will run for a second and sound three beeps and stops.


Sounds like the door switch has gone bad., but your description is confusing.

First, it takes a few minutes for you to feel the air blowing hot, particularly when the dryer is in a cold garage. The heating elements have to heat up the mass of the metal, and any clothes in the dryer.

The timer design is such that it can not speed up (the motor inside wont start running faster, due to it's electrical design.).

I am suspect that the door switch has failed for some reason, because reading between the lines, I think you are saying when you release the Start button, the dryer quits operating. If the door switch is bad, then it will cause that condition to happen.

Kenmore electric dryer won't start


The first thing I would check would be the door switch. Dryers operate on 220 volts. Many brands split the 220v into 110v for controls and motor and 110v to the heater. There are also safety systems on many brands that won't allow the heater to come on if the fan motor is not running and blowing air throught he element to prevent overheating and dryer fires. If the door switch is ok, check the belt. If the belt is ok, it could be a problem with the motor start switch. The motor start swith is complicated fix and should be done by a professional. ALWAYS BE SURE TO DICONNECT THE POWER BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY REPAIRS.

Check your heating element to see if it is shorted to ground.
The element has 110V to it all the time, so if the element shorts to ground it will heat all the time. This is a fairly common failure.

If the element is ok, you may have a stuck centrifigul switch inside the motor, this is very rare but does happen sometimes.

Post back to let me know what you find or if you have any questions.
