Check the door switch for continuity.
Check the thermal fuse on the heat canister for continuity.
No continuity, bad part.

SOURCE: trying to install a dryer belt on a kenmore dryer

the belt goes through a tensioner which fastenes to the floor in a set of slots. Get the belt through that tensioner then around the motor pulley. Put the drum on the wheels in the back, lift the front (you need a helper) and put the front back on and fasten, replace the top.

Much easier to say it than to do it ... but you got this far, I have faith you can finish the job.

Thanks for using

Our Kenmore Front loader Dryer Mod # 110.61402310 i put our clothes in the Dryer and powered it on and then Nothing wont Power on

Electric dryer no start does nothing

Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage.


NEXT Test the PUSH start switch with meter for OHMS. Should show OHMS when pushed in or on start, and no ohms or infinity when in off position.

If you hear a humming sound from motor area you more than likely have a bad motor.
Try this test out to see if u have weak windings on motor.
Open the dryer door and turn by hand the drum while machine is on ON position. And you or someone else presses the door engagement switch in. If it starts up then u have bad windings

Another thing to check is the belt safety switch. With a multi meter.
Especially if u just replaced the belt. The belt safety switch is attached to the Tensioner and motor. IT LOOKS LIKE A DOOR SWITCH SOMEWHAT a little black pc of plastic with 2 prongs going into it. Sits at bottom of motor. Under the Tensioner. Attach meter clips to the 2 prongs on switch, Then when the little white push button is pressed in it should show continuity and none when released. hope it helps

Kenmore dryer 88752 dryer runs but wont heat up heating element was replaced problem not solved

Electric dryers are 220 volt, you could check both power legs for voltage. But I would go with checking the fuseble links, there should be two. Go to the Sears parts web page look up your unit and it will show you how many and there location. Check for continuity with a meter.
