Kenmore gas dryer buzzes but does not run

I have a Kenmore series 90 gas dryer, she has just stopped working. When you attempt to turn the dryer on for a cycle, the dryer just buzzes (as if at the end of a cycle), but never does not start.  I have tried all settings with the same results as above.

Sounds like the start windings in the motor have gone bad. The only way to fix this is to replace the motor.

SOURCE: Kenmore dryer buzzes but does not run

You could have any one of several problems with that gas dryer -

Turn dryer on.
Go out to where dryer duct exits house.
Feel the amount and strength of air blast coming from vent.
Air blast should be strong and cover the full face of the vent.

If not, check that dryer hose is not crushed/collapsed behind dryer as it is pushed back into position.
Clear any restrictions in the vent pipe.
Clean lint screen.
Check that there is no restriction where air is pumped into or discharges from the dryer drum on the inside.
If you are able to, check to see if you can see the pilot ignitor lighting.

Reply back your findings for further instruction or information.

Dryer doesnt go on


I opened up the lower panel of my kenmore 90 and then removed the blower cover. I found two hair pins lodged in the blower and removed them. I tested the dryer with it open and the blower and drum began to turn again. I buttoned everything back up, and it is running fine now.

I have a Kenmore Series 90 gas dryer. Works fine.


The only source of a gas leak from inside the dryer itself is the gas valve. They can sometimes leak a little gas when you first turn the gas on after hooking it up. If your gas pressure is normal (and I'm guessing the plumber checked it) and your other gas appliances are working properly, the dryer gas valve is faulty and should be checked by a qualified appliance servicer.
