Question about Kenmore Dryers
I took some clothes out of the dryer and left some clothes in the dryer that wasn't dry. I close the door and pushed the start button and the dryer would not start.
I've checked the circuit breaker and it's ok.

The problem depends on whether you've got an electric machine or gas.
If its electric its probably the heating element. If gas its probably a bad glow plug (igniter).
Both are fairly inexpensive to replace.

There is a micro switch on the door to stop the dryer when you open the door during normal operation. Unplug the dryer and locate the switch by visually inspecting around were the door contacts the dryer and identify if you can remove the switch without opening the dryer top. If you cannot remove the switch from the front try to access the switch by lifting the top of the dryer cover off. Unplug one of the wires and touch the wire connector you removed to the other connector on the switch using electrical tape to insulate and hold it in place. Plug the dryer in and see if it works. If it does you need to order and replace the switch. If it does not the start switch could be bad and you will need to test it with an Ohm Meter which will be the safest way to test the switch.

Testimonial: "I appreciate the quick response on the problem with my dryer. The clear instructions will give me the ability to check it out. Thanks!"
Frequently there's an obstruction in the vent duct from the dryer to the outside of the house. For the dryer to heat properly, the duct must be clean and clear of lint or any other substance. Your dryer has some internal ductwork. If it gets clogged, your dryer can't dry properly. In most dryers, to get to the internal ductwork to clear the clog, you have to substantially disassemble the dryer. A quick way to check for internal clogs is to remove the lint filter and use a flashlight to inspect the inside of the duct.
