Question about Dryers
I have an older Kenmore electric dryer - 80 series. I was doing laundry the other night, took clothes out mid cycle, added new clothes, reset time, and hit the start button. Absolutely NOTHING happened. I've checked all circuit breakers in the house as this is how it seems to be acting, but no help. Is ther some kind of internal circuit breaker I can check?
I would check to see if you have 220v to back of dryer where the cord mounts to dryer Check the door switch, , Take back off dryer There is a fuse in the back its white oblong 2 wires coming from it, left side on blower outlet ..be carefull hook the 2 wires togather and if it comes on the fuse is bad needs replacing same way with the door switch.

The problem with mine was the same, it just quit. My problem was a little circuit board that is in the housing the start button and the timer are in. Two phillips screws and it comes off. Make sure the dryer is un-plugged. Then turn the housing so you can see the parts inside just pull the 2x3 inch p.c.b it unplugs like a anti theft chip the cars have now days. Test the continuity, but the door switch is the most common problem. The only thing I haven't replaced on my dryer is the motor. I guess that will go next. GOOD LUCK.

Kenmore 80 Series of dryers are consumer grade dryers for home use. As
with most home appliances, the Kenmore 80 series dryers will
occasionally not work as intended. If a problem occurs with your dryer,
however, you do not necessarily need it serviced by a technician. You
can attempt to troubleshoot and fix any problems with your dryer before
contacting a technician.
