Based on your description, i would suggest two possibilities. the first....check the door switch
two....check the blower housing sensor (a fuse like component located at the lower rear of the dryer).. it is a small , slim part about an 1 1/4 inches long and about 3/8 ths inches wide. it has a wire connection at both ends.
a quick test for both components mentioned would be to pull the wires off and temporarily connect them together. (be sure to not let them touch anything else). then try to operate the unit.
hope this helps...........................jay

the start switch needs replaced, as far as the front panel light not lighting you will need to open the back top panel of the dryer and find the wiring diagram and trace it out, it may something as simple as the connector is unplugged. Hope this helps Tim

I have a stackable washer and dryer. Both have worked fine except recently clothes started getting caught between the drum and the front frame of the dryer. My husband pulled it apart checked the screws...


You may have a felt seal in the front that needs replaced. A wire off the pin switch could be off, and you will see the pin switch when you open the door, and make sure it is clicking.

Kenmore Front loading dryer not working # 666421086718730


The thermal overload fuse is probably bad. It is located under the top of the dryer near or at the drum. Bypass it to see if that is it. Next area to look at is the element. It may have just went out.

My Kenmore Elite gas dryer only heats some of the time


Took the bottom front panel off and cleaned the dust from there and cleaned it out real well. An animal had nuts in the vent from out side. Put new hose on and started it up and is working fine.
Thank you anyway. Lynn Miller
