Kenore Senor Smart 27-inch dryer control panel not working

I have a Kenmore Sensor Smart 27-inch electric dryer (not sure where the model # is, but the # on the lower left of the owner's manual is 3979093A if that helps) that has an unresponsive control panel. The light inside the drum comes on, so I know the machine is getting power. But the control panel acts like it is not getting any power at all -- the LED display will not come on, nor will any of the indicator lights come on when any of the buttons are pushed. Is there a breaker/fuse for the control panel itself that may have been tripped/blown and if so where is it and how do you get to it? Any suggestions/advice/help would be greatly appreciated!!!

Door switch If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch.

Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing.

If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the dryer back into operation. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.)

You could have a blown fuse because of a clogged vent or a bad thermistor. A thermistor is used by electronic controls to measure temp changes inside the dryer. If the sensor is open then the brain does not have a clue how hot the dryer is. So it shuts down. Repair clinic has an excellent thermistor replacement video.

I have an 27 inch Kenmore electric dryer. There is power to the dryer but the dryer will not start. What could be the problem? What should I look at?


Hi

I believe that everything else is fine rather it is the thermal fuse that is located inside the rear panel to the exhaust duct that is bad and should be replaced. If you want you can test this fuse for continuity and if it is bad then it should be replaced, as it cannot be reset. If the fuse is fine then it can be due to the control board that is bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

I have a Kenore dryer, model 110.C6549. Everything seems to be working but there is little to no heat


Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.


if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....


If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.


check out this electric no heat tip...

I have an old kenmore model 002586 dryer that just stopped and won't start. I think it may be a thermal fuse, but am not sure exactly where it is located. Would you know?


Unplug the dryer.
Remove the rear panel of the dryer.
Look on the left side of the main exhaust vent. The fuse is about 1 and 1/2 inches long by 1/2 inch wide and white in color.
2 wires attached.

my kenmore model number 911-47699100 oven doesn't work. Everything except the oven and broil works--cleaning, all timers, start button, etc. All that happens when you push start is about every 30 seconds, two relays can be heard making and breaking kind of like a click then immediately a clack. No error codes appear. Replaced sensor but that didn't work. Any help would be appreciated.
