Question about Dryers
Have a 13 (?) yr old Kenmore 80 series dryer. As of two days ago, when I push the start button, I just get a buzzing sound. Yesterday in desperation, I pushed and held the start button down for a few seconds. It actually did start to turn/tumble, and twice ran for 10-15 seconds and then stopped. The third time it stayed on for +20 minutes and dried the load. Today I tried that trick and get nothing. In fact, after trying 3 times, now when I push the button, I don't even get the buzzing sound.
Can anyone tell me what the problem is likely to be? Is this something a non-handy homeowner like myself could fix? If not, what might be the cost of having a repair person in?
Also, does anyone know if this dryer model has "moisture sensing"? In looking up new dryer features, this seems to be about the only feature of great worth, and I don't know if this dryer already has it or not.
THANKS for any and all help!!!
I have a kenmore elite , smart pac,he3, it will run for 10 min then shut off and a code (F 70 ) will start flashing, what does that mean.
