Hi, The only thing you can reset is the beaker for the dryer in you breaker panel for the house. As far as the dryer, if it doesn't start at all, you will need to test the fuse in the dryer. First thing!! Unplug the dryer. This fuse is none resetable. Most models have the fuse located in the back of the dryer. You will need to remove the rear panel and locate the fuse on the blower housing. The fuse is white and is 1/4" wide and about 2" long with two wires attached to it. If the fuse has coninuity, then it is ok. This is the most common problem. Other causes could be door switch, timer, or the motor.

Hope this gives a little help. Need more, let me know

My kenmore 600 series dryer quit, makes no noises does nothing?

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/clicking sound from motor area you more than likely have a bad motor.
Try this test out to see if u have weak windings or relay/capacitor 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.

Lastly check ut push start button for continuity with a meter when pushed in the on position, it may have gone bad.

Kenmore 600 timer no longer works

This is not an easy task. you will need to disassemble the entire control panel to extract the bad or faulty timer. Extraction can be tough on some model. this will cause an inexperienced do it yourselfer to break off fragile retaining clips and screw anchors as well. you will also need to make sure that the wiring harness is re attached to the new replacement timer correctly. this is important. We recommend calling for service on all electrical repairs if you have minimal experience in this field of repair. Unfortunately , when these timers are damaged, you cannot repair them. you will need to replace the bad timer with a entirely new timer.

Dryer just quit

There is no reset switch and there is no fuse inside the console.  I posted comments to your solution under the premium problem section.  I believe you could have a bad thermal fuse which is located in the rear of the dryer.  I left instructions for you to follow.  Let me know if you need further assistance.
