Question about Kenmore Dryers

1 Answer

Kenmore Elite Dryer stopped working

When you push the start button it sounds like it is going to start, but when you release it, it stops again. I duck taped it for a load but found that the dryer did not heat either.

Most of the time if you push the start and it drags the motor is getting to weak to turn the drum(bad motor)if it's not heating also,it might be the heating element or the heater box fuse.if it was me i would sell it on craigslist for parts,and buy another one on craigslist(great deals)

GE dryer starts but..... stops


What you describe is either a failed evenheat board or a failed motor relay.
Please post the complete model number from the machine and I can help you narrow it down. There should be a wiring diagram inside the console with voltage checks also.
Thanks/Mike
