Remove back from dryer, test thermal overload on heater box with ohm meter, then check the heat element, be sure you have 240v going to the machine before these tests, then unplug to do the testing.

Kenmore dryer model 86880100: Start button would just buzz when pressed, sometimes actually start the machine, then the machine would run for a few minutes and turn itself off with a burning smell. Now...


Sounds like a over heated motor which starts when the motor is cool but not after it runs and stop. Burning smell comes from the heated windings on the motor coils.
Make sure that the pully is not binding...which i doubt.

Hi,

There can be many reasons why your dryer will not start or turn...

The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor going bad...

Here are a couple of tips that I wrote will help you to figure out why your dryer will not run...

Dryer not heating on any setting.


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Check to make sure you are getting full 220 Volt power to the dryer if you are then:

Sounds like your problem may be with the heating coil.
Remove the back of the machine and try to locate the air duct going from the blower to the drum. Normally inside the air duct you will find the heating coil and the thermostats/thermistor.
Once you have located the heating coil, remove the two wires from it and check the coil with an ohm meter across the two terminals of the coil.
You should read continuity across the terminals, if not you will need to replace the coil as it is faulty.
If the heating coil is ok, then:
You can check the thermostat/thermistor by removing the two wires and taping them together with electrical tape.
If the coil heats up then replace the thermostat/thermistor.
DO NOT LEAVE THE WIRES TAPED TOGETHER AFTER THE TEST. This could cause a fire, as you have removed the safety of overheat from the machine.
I will include these two websites for parts and further help:

Both also have chat assistance 24/7.
Good Luck,
Hope this helps

Kenmore dryer will not heat


only 2 things can be wrong, the heater element is toast or one of the safety thermostats is fried, most likely it is the heating element. make sure its well connected(while unplugged!!!)

My kenmore 70 series dryer quick working


My wife was cleaning the top part of the dryer, and took off the knobs to clean them and the dryer will not start up and not run at all. where do I start to problem solving?

1 Answer

Signal


Kenmore 70 series. Model/Stock 66702692 Serial MG2402832

Cycle Signal works but then won't shut off until I open up the dryer door - it just keeps buzzing for hours. Also the dryer will turn on if I close the door ( and arrow is within a number and not on off) without pressing the start button. So if door is closed - the dryer will run or buzz (depending on arrow). How do I fix this?

Thank you
