Kenmore gas dryer

My dryer just stopper turning on. I brought he starter to Home Depot and they said it is fine. The metel peice in the door still clicks so I know that is not broken. Any idea why it will not start. I took off the back panel and it looks like all of the wire are connected fine.

The dryer door does not shut enough to compress the seal. The dryer latch hasno adjustment to make a tighter fit. Neither the latch on the door, nor the receiver in the unit are damaged.


You might have to replace the catch. Ours is held on with 2 screws (the piece on the dryer not the door).
Take it to a place like sears or maybe Home Depot and see if they carry it. or they can order one.

Kenmore HE Dryer not blowing hot air


I have a gas kenmore dryer... the drum runs- it blows air and for just a few minutes warm air but after a few minutes the air is cold. I have cleaned the vent checked it good. I didn't see the fuse on the back I have the bottom latch open and see several wires that can be disconnected; snap together.

Our Kenmore Elite HE4 gas dryer will not start although all controls on front are lite and appear to be functioning properly (settings can be changed, etc). I has been working fine for several hours until...


check the door switch and door latch. Open door, set the dryer to air fluff cycle, and manually depress the door switch. Press start button. If it started - door needs alignment to fix it.
If it did not start:
If your dryer has light inside - check if light turns off when you press the switch. If not - switch needs replacement.
If all that checks out ok - the problem is more serious, and you might need a tech to come out and diagnose it.

Dryer wont start. starter switch is new and timer will run when the door is closed


HI. if the timer is running, and the wiring harness is in good condition, this will confirm motor failure. I would advise to test the operational value of the door switch as well but if the door switch is working, this will only lead to motor failure.

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.

Listen very closely to the dryer right as your pushing start.Is there any sound at all.Listen very closely because its critical on making the diagnosis.
