Turn off the circuit breakers and then back on. One pole could be tripped and the other OK and it not show. Check the wiring from the receptacle to the plug and into the back of the dryer. Look to see if all wiring is secure. If it still doesn't work, take the top off the dryer and locate the thermal overload switch next to or near the drum. Bypass it and see if it comes on. If it does, then replace it for only about 15 dollars. My guess is that it is here. Let me know how it does.

Dryer light bulb burned out


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
Light Socket

The light socket can get corroded or a wire connection can come loose. You will need to remove the front panel to access the housing on most dryers.

Door Switch

If your dryer has an interior light, it probably uses a standard 40-watt appliance bulb, but check your owner's manual to be sure. If the bulb is good but the light won't come on, check the door switch, which serves two functions: When the door is closed, it turns off the light and allows the dryer to start. When the door is open, it turns on the light and prevents the dryer from starting. To check the door switch check for continuity. You should have some when the door is closed and none when the door is opened.If not replace the door switch by removing the front panel.

It blows fuses or trips the circuit breaker

Electric dryers use 220 volts or two power lines of 110 volts each. Some components in the dryer need only 110 volts; the heating element requires 220 volts. So it's possible for one part of the dryer to be fine and another part to have a short circuit. Short circuits can be caused by the heating element, the main power cord, or any other part of the internal wiring. Loose connections on the power cord cause failures and or fires. This can be checked with the dryer unplugged and removing the service cover and visually check for burning and mechanically check for tightness.

If the circuit breaker trips or the fuse blows when the dryer is unplugged, it's likely the problem is with the house wiring, fuse box, or circuit box. Contact a qualified electrician.

Kenmore dryer 70 series 66722690 - has power but won't start (no humming noise, no ticking noise from timer, and no light when you open door) nothing!


I would check the breaker before you go any further. Here are some things to remember when you do this. 1) The breaker for the dryer is generally located outside on the side of the house somewhere near the electric meter. Most 220vac breakers are, which include any electric range, cooktop, wall oven, etc. 2) When your checking the breaker, actually physically touch it. Sometimes breakers can trip a but the spring that actually pulls the breaker to off position is weak and by visual inspection would appear on. Just simply reach in and tap the bar lightly in the off direction. If it pops over to the off position, turn it back on then go check your dryer. If the breaker passes inspection, I would unplug the machine because there migfht be a short at the terminal block where the plug connects to the dryer. After you've unplugged it, remove the back and check to see if everything is ok. I have a strong feeling that you won't need to get to this point cause I'm betting on breaker.

Dryer suddenly stopped working while drying clothes. There is power because the light comes on when the door is opened.


Try turning the dryer breaker pair in the house electrical panel off then on. Try the dryer again. If still won't work, measure the voltage at the power socket across the two slanted slots--it should read ~230 volt AC. If ok, there are internal problems in the dryer--bad controller, motor not running, or the heater element is bad. If you don't measure ~230 volts, one of the breaker pair is bad or there is a loose wire between the breaker and the power socket. Have an electrician check that out.

Dryer light comes on but unit will not power up or turn on


Check & reset breaker in breaker box.

Your problem may be you have lost one side of your voltage coming in. Light in dryer comes on but circuit to start motor is off.

Msg back if that does not work& we will go further.
